How might you say a child is "cute" in Spanish?

Suppose you see a mother with a laughing little 2-year-old. In English, we might exclaim, "how cute!"I've had trouble saying this in Spanish. The word "cute" means something like "beautiful", but it has a sense of smallness and playfulness and affection. (It **can** be used for an adult; I might call my wife "cute" if she's doing something silly, but in serious moments I would say something more like "beautiful".)I've asked a couple of Spanish speakers for a Spanish equivalent for "cute", and I've looked online, but I'm not sure if any of these fit:> * **lindo** or **guapo** - These could both describe an attractive adult, right?> * **precioso** - This seems close; we might say "precious" in English about a small child.> * **¡qué mono rico es!** - This is just confusing. *"What a delicious monkey"*?How would you say that a child is "cute" in Spanish?
