Just 21 Adorable Photos of Baby Elephants

Life can get the most of us sometimes. The stress of work, family obligations and our hectic schedules can just feel overwhelming. So it's nice to stop and smell the flowers every once in a while with something that puts our soul at ease. In my experience, nothing does this better than looking at some pictures of baby elephants.

Sure there are other kids of cute baby animals - puppies and kittens are popular, of course, but for my money nothing is more adorable and comforting than a baby elephant.

So take a few deep breaths, collect yourself, and find peace by looking at these cute little critters.
