13 Times It Was Evident That President Obama Loves The Kids
Prepare the tissues. If you haven’t seen the video of President Obama with Little Miss Flint, the adorable and inspiring 8-year-old girl who met the President after writing him a letter and inviting him to her hometown of Flint, Michigan, you can watch it here. Go ahead. We’ll wait.
Not only did budding activist Amariyanna “Mari” Copeny call more attention to Flint’s ongoing lead contamination water crisis, but also, the third grader’s “mind was blown” upon meeting President Obama, something she never thought would happen. In an interview with CBS News, the young girl said she’s learned that “one girl can change the world.”
The beautiful moment she jumped into President Obama’s arms made us reflect on all the moments he has spent with his daughters and other children during his historic presidency. His obvious love and respect for children is one of the many reasons President Obama will be missed once he leaves office. It’s safe to say that the White House will never be the same.
President Obama took a break to crawl around with Ella, daughter of Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes.

It's that time of the year when I'm frantically editing for my annual Year in Photos. There are so many fun photos of the President with babies or little kids that I'm having trouble just whittling those down. Here are two that I'm considering but both probably won't make it in. Which do you prefer: top or bottom?
As the official White House photographer, Pete Souza sure has a tough job. I’d have trouble editing the President’s Year in Photos as well with pictures like this to choose from.
It looks like President Obama enjoyed his conversation with this young girl who looked more than happy to explain her art project to him.
Nothing to see here, folks. Just another day in the Oval Office for President Obama…with a cute baby in tow.
These two boys look like they could be President Obama’s own children.
Strike A Pose
Okay, so the young man in this photo isn’t exactly a child but, come on! How cool is it that he got to strike this playful pose with President Obama?

Still editing 2014 Year in Photos. I may include this one even though it's a posed photo. This is from the annual White House Science Fair. The kids from Girl Scout Troop 2612 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, convinced the President to wear a tiara with them for their group photo. The girls had exhibited a Lego flood proof bridge project.

President Obama donned a tiara to pose with these happy Girl Scouts.
