I don't have to say this, but I'm going to: Zooey Deschanel's baby daughter is all of us.

That's because when it came time to spit out her first few words, "cheese" was right up there with "mama" and "dada." Amen, sister. Cheese rules.

When Deschanel visited Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday night, she told the cute story about how her husband, film producer Jacob Pechenik, passed down his love for the delicious dairy staple to their daughter.

"My husband taught her how to say cheese just 'cause she likes cheese so much," Deschanel said. "This morning, I went in and it's still dark in her room and she's wearing her little jammies…and she goes, 'More...cheese! I'm like, 'You didn't even have any cheese and you want more?"

Elsie Otter (yeah, that's her name), you're our hero!
