This Santa Refused To Wake a Sleeping Baby And Took The Most Adorable Photos

After baby Zeke fell asleep in line, Santa made lemonade out of lemons.

An adorable baby is getting a ton of attention after he did a cute sleeping photo shoot with a quick-thinking mall Santa.

Little Zeke Walters and his family headed to the mall near their home in Evansville, Indiana, last week to take his first photos with Santa, his dad, Donnie, told BuzzFeed News.

But as they were standing in line, the 6-month-old couldn't handle the excitement and passed out. "My son just gave the biggest yawn and crashed his head on my shoulder,” Walters said.

Walters said the family figured they would just walk around the mall until Zeke woke up, but Santa had another idea. "[He said,] 'Don’t wake your child; we got the perfect shot,'” Walters said.

"We thought it was cute, and we shared it and loved it," Walters said of the photo shoot.

He said his page has grown from less than 300 fans to more than 9,000, and he hopes to show other dads through his page how rewarding staying home with your child can be.

"I kind of hope to be an inspiration for other fathers to play a big role in their child's life," he said.
