The Franklin Park Zoo in Boston has welcomed a newborn baby goat — and it’s the cutest thing you’ve ever seen.

Chewbacca, the name of the Nigerian dwarf goat, was born to parents Leia and Lucky on Feb. 16, according to the Huffington Post.

“We are thrilled to share the news of this birth and we hope people will stop by during this school vacation week to see this adorable new addition,” John Linehan, zoo president and CEO, said in a release.

Weighing just 4 pounds, Chewbacca first had a hard time standing by herself, but eventually got the hang of the whole thing.

She will live with her parents in the Franklin Farm section of the zoo, according to the article.
