A study by Home Start has revealed that over 600,000 babies were born in England from the end of March 2020, meaning they have spent their entire existence in quarantine - and the vast majority of that time has stuck inside the same four walls.
So it's little wonder that parents are sharing their babies' adorable faces of wonder on TikTok as they start to show the world to their little one now lockdown restrictions are easing.
Watch the video below.
It's incredible to watch their eyes light up as they do something for the first time that we have repeatedly taken for granted, such as a trip to the supermarket.
One heart-warming video, uploaded by Tiktoker Trixiesmom3620, saw one toddler look genuinely amazed to be wheeled around American supermarket, Target.
In the video captioned: "Attention shoppers, we have a first timer!", we see the little one waving at other shoppers, looking up at the bright lights and being baffled at the size of the store.
Writing in the comments, the OG poster wrote: "It was so fun to watch her reaction! She did really well. She wanted to go out a couple of times...but would go right back in, no problems."
Another video saw two bewildered twins look nervously as they're wheeled around a supermarket, gingerly touching products and staring with puppy-dog eyes at those around them.
A third baby, in a video uploaded by a TikToker with the handle chickennuggetmom4, was utterly delighted to be out in the wild.
"He had so much fun, you would have thought we were at Disneyland!" the poster wrote in the video.
"He thinks the masks are hilarious. Bonus: he did great out in public!"
And the videos have filled so many with happiness, as it really is uplifting to see someone so little find such joy in things we totally take for granted.
"It gives me hope seeing them so happy and not scared!" one woman wrote in the comments.
A second added: "He is just absolutely adorable. How weird his life has been solely at home then seeing all masks and no expressions on people's faces when he's out."
Elsewhere, a third person shared their own experience: "My son is two and has been in quarantine since before his first birthday. He thinks McDonald's drive thru is the best!"
If only we found a trip to Tesco as exciting!
