While it quickly turns into Nightmare Fuel, Cathy Bowman's initial reaction to the Compsognathus could qualify.
The moment where we saw Stegosaurus on the big screen alive and moving can made some people feel utter awe and amazement.
The fact that the baby actually allowed Sarah to get up close and interact with it. Well, until it got scared by her camera, anyways.
Not to mention the ending, where a herd of Stegosaurus are migrating together with their young - right next to a pair of T.rexes playing with their young.
Despite the fact that it later led to disaster, Nick freeing and later helping to heal the injured baby T. rex counts.

According to a cut bit, the leg break was an accident. A drunk Ludlow stepped on him and got chewed out for it by Tembo.
The second film has the T. rex helping its kid get its first kill. See it here. It's so adorable that you almost forget about the Asshole Victim they're snacking on.
