One small step for a panda, one adorable moment for all of us!

If you thought it was hard to get out of bed this morning, think of how tough it was for Bei Bei!

He's the baby giant panda at the Smithsonian National Zoo. After three months on this planet, the little guy finally took his first steps.

Fans have been able to keep an eye on the little guy, whose name means "precious treasure" in Mandarin, thanks to live web cams at the zoo.

Finally, after 3 months of overwhelming cuteness between Bei Bei  and his mom Mei Xiang, the almost 10 pound panda took his first steps.

After, mom scoops him up and seems to give him a congratulatory hug.

Now that Bei Bei is walking, the zoo says he will be able to wander around and eventually leave the den and explore his indoor enclosure.

And there's no doubt now that he's on the move, the pandamonium is just beginning.
