baby

zero derivation; adjective
Overcome with cuteness, having the essence of a baby.
 
Converted into an adjective. Originally from the phrase “I’m baby,” which first came from a text conversation between a teenager and her mom that an unreliable news source publicized. Much later, however, the same phrase resurfaced in the context of an image of Kirby pointing at a board with the words “I’m baby” on it. This context stuck much more within the common lexicon, and a word that used to only make sense in the context of the phrase “I’m baby,” can now be used to describe other objects or animals (eg “your friend is so baby”). While the word doesn’t have a bad connotation, not everyone knows the word yet. When used around someone who hasn’t yet heard this word, the recipient may feel insulted, and believe they are being called a baby, when that is not the case.
