Thursday’s opening of the 116th Congress wasn’t only exciting for newly elected members of the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives. There were also plenty of excited kids.
Many of the representatives brought family members to their swearing-in, including children and grandchildren. For newly elected House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), the day was particularly momentous. She was the first politician in 58 years to take back the speaker’s gavel after a previous stint from 2007 to 2011.
Pelosi, the highest-ranking female politician in American history, marked her renaissance by bringing her granddaughter, Bella, who was particularly exuberant. Pelosi’s progeny jumped up and down when the California Democrat voted for herself as speaker.

But Bella wasn’t done. When Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) got up to vote for Pelosi, Bella was there beside her, aggressively clapping and smiling broadly.

Many on Twitter couldn’t help but love Bella’s enthusiasm for her grandmother:

One of Nancy Pelosi’s granddaughter, I believe, keeps running up to her and dancing. When someone near her voted for her she hugged her.— Zoey Jordan Salsbury (@zoeyjsalsbury) January 3, 2019
I am very emotional right now.

Bella was not the only child making waves during the House session.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) brought her children ― and they brought their dance moves. As one of the first two Muslim women in Congress cast her first vote, her sons dabbed.
Oh, to be a kid in Congress.
Oh to be a kid in Congress, indeed! These are moments that make me smile! I love this!
