This Toddler’s Instagram Account Just Got 17,000 New Followers in 5 Days – and There’s a Hilarious Reason Why

The latest Instagram sensation isn’t a teen celebrity or reality TV star. It’s…a toddler. The Instagram account @insta2yearold started with a happy accident when blogger Ilana Wiles‘ daughter Harlow took an accidental selfie while playing with her mom’s phone. Wiles added a funny caption to the shot, and voila – an internet sensation was born. Thanks to Wiles’ super-witty captions serving as a hysterical glimpse into the toddler mind, @insta2yearold has gained over 17,000 followers in the last week. We hope you’ll enjoy a few of our favorites. If these toddler adventures leave you wanting more, you catch them all over on Instagram.
