Oh boy, is there anything cuter than a baby polar bear taking its first steps? I really doubt it! 

A cub at the Toronto zoo in Canada has tentatively started to stand, wobble, lick his lips in a determined fashion and walk. Born in November, the cub was taken from its mother and into the zoo's intensive care unit when staff noticed he wasn't moving as well after the deaths of his siblings.

With that knowledge in mind, why these precious moments are enough to make to make even the iciest of hearts melt. And with the polar vortex this week freezing America and Canada, at least one cheering thing could come out of it all.
