Adorable photo of baby welcoming soldier home goes viral

After nine months in Afghanistan, Cole Tesar returned home to Omaha, Neb. and met his 7-month-old daughter, Harper, for the first time.

His wife, Logan, set up Harper with a sign that plays off the Carly Rae Jepson tune "Call me, maybe" to welcome him home. She took a photo of Harper and the sign WOWT posted it to their Facebook page. From there, the story exploded.

The photo has more than 1.5 million likes and 89,000 shares and was even shared by the singer herself. Carly Rae Jepson wrote "My heart just melted seeing this! A soldier is welcomed home with this sign by his daughter. What an adorable girl!"
