The latest romantic link up for Miley Cyrus (opens in new tab): Singer Cody Simpson.

The pair have been spotted together in recent days, kissing and cuddling and generally enjoying each other's company in a more-than-friends capacity. On Saturday, Simpson shared a picture of him and Miley on his Instagram story, captioned, "pre swim breakfast courtesy of baby."

Miley's response was, in true Miley fashion, the absolute best. The singer took to her own Instagram (opens in new tab) story to reference the post, sharing a photo of herself as an actual baby in reply to Simpson's post and pet name.

Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson (opens in new tab) are having a casual, kiss-filled thing right now, which is, for the record, more than okay, contrary to what some of Miley's critics have been insinuating (opens in new tab).

On Saturday, Simpson documented his and Miley's morning together (opens in new tab) with a black and white photo on his Instagram Story. The picture features him kissing Miley (opens in new tab) on the cheek while she makes an adorable scrunched nose face. Simpson captioned the cutesy pic, "pre swim breakfast courtesy of baby."

Simpson's caption tells us a few things about the budding (but casual) relationship:

Miley, being Miley (opens in new tab), responded to the new pet name in the best way. First, she acknowledged it in an Instagram Story post of her own:

Then, she took things up a notch, posting a photo of herself as an actual baby:

Followed by a side-by-side, just for good measure, to illustrate that she's a grown woman and not an infant human (but while also acknowledging that she does still make the same faces she made as a smaller and younger person)
