Now that's how you start the day! Kim Kardashian kicked off Jan. 29, with some cuddly one-on-one time next to her 7-month-old baby girl, North.

In an intimate new picture posted to Instagram, the 33-year-old reality star gazes up at the camera while lying next to her daughter and nuzzling the top of little Nori's head. (North herself is only visible from her eyebrows up.) "Good morning," Kardashian captioned the sweet shot.

The proud first-time mom -- who welcomed North last June with fiance Kanye West -- recently revealed to fans that cuddling is her favorite part of being a mom. "We cuddled and played all day," she gushed on Jan. 15.

Indeed, the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star can't seem to get enough of her daughter. "She changes all the time," she told Ellen DeGeneres two days later on Jan. 17. "One day she'll look like Kanye, one day she'll look like me. It's so crazy. And her personality is so cute. She is really calm and really quiet."

"I know it sounds crazy, but I love my time with her when she's on the changing table," she added, noting that rapper West, 36, is "not a diaper kind of guy," though he'll step up in an emergency. "I really enjoy that bonding time when I'm with her."
