Severus Snape, thinking he was going to have a relaxing summer of just brewing potions at his manor and not have to deal with brats each day, his summer plans change when on the first night back from Hogwarts, an upset Lily Potter visits him in a dream, needing his help to rescue her son.
Reluctantly, he checks on the Potter brat at his relatives home that same night, only to discover that all is not what it seems.

'"Mmm," Harry copied him, a small smile forming on his lips. "Mmmm!" He said again insistently, as if expecting praise.'
After being rescued from the outrageous treatment of the Dursleys, Harry Potter is handed to Severus Snape and at first nothing good can be made out of this relationship. Babies can be quite a handful and Snape is NOT a tolerant man. Baby!Harry and lots of fluff.
Takes Place: 0 - Pre Hogwarts (before Harry is 11)
