President Barack Obama was sworn into his second term on Sunday at noon in front of only his wife and two daughters in a simple service. His younger daughter Sasha said 'Good job, Daddy!' after he correctly recited the oath of office.
'I did it!' he gleefully responded. Sure to keep him on his toes, he followed that up with a quick 'You didn't mess up!'
Keeping it brief: Mr Obama had his immediate family beside him at the ceremony, but reports also say that his other relatives were also present but out of the camera's line
Close bond: Mr Obama got a happy hug from older daughter Malia and Sasha (right) told him 'Good job, Daddy!' after he completed the oath. 'You didn't mess up!'
Normally the oath of office is given on the steps of the Capitol and is followed by his address to the nation, but because this year it happens to fall on a Sunday- and inaugurations are never held that day of the week- the oath of office was given quickly in the Blue Room of the White House instead.
Swearing in: President Obama took his oath of office on Sunday just before noon, officially marking the start of his second term
Big moment: The oath was given quickly and held inside the White House because it is Sunday and the inauguration ceremony will be held tomorrow
Keeping it in the family: Mr Obama opted to be sworn in on a Bible that has been in Mrs Obama's family for some time
Signs of approval: Michelle gives Barack a kiss after he read the oath and Malia gives her dad a big hug
All smiles: Though they looked serious during the actual ceremony, everyone appeared happy after it was done
Mr Obama opted to give a nod to Mrs Obama's relatives by choosing to be sworn in with his hand resting on the Robinson's family Bible.
Few fans: Only a handful of relatives were invited to attend the private ceremony
