Lorde is probably the world’s coolest teenager. The Kiwi singer/songwriter already has two Grammys under her belt, a ride or die fanbase, and an enviable celebrity posse of BFFs.

At this point, you’re probably like, yeah, yeah, tell me something I don’t know!

Challenge accepted! Did you know that Lorde was also the world’s most adorable little kid? And did you know that she plays fast and loose with the sacred rules of Instagram? Choosing to throw caution to the wind, she posted this adorable throwback photo on Saturday night:

I mean, how freaking cute is that?

I guess I should also mention that Lorde’s only 18, so this picture was probably taken, like, three weeks ago, but it still qualifies as a throwback photo, right?

(I kid, I kid!)

Lorde captioned the photo, “managed to capture the exact moment my modelling career started.. but of course she has always been beautiful. happy 21st birthday to my super cute big sister jerry florence.”

I love this picture because it just shows that good hair genes run strong in the Yelich-O’Connor family. Lorde’s big sister Jerry had a pretty fantastic head of hair even as a kid. I also love baby Lorde’s gapped teeth! My teeth looked like that when I was a growing up too, and it’s just such a cute trait on kids. (My front teeth are still gapped, and let me just say that it’s a pretty cute trait on adults too, thank you very much!)

Anyway, I’d like to take this moment to thank Lorde for totally brightening my day with this adorable photo. Here’s hoping some of her other celebrity friends will catch on to the trend and post some of their cute sibling throwbacks–I’m looking at you, Taylor and Austin Swift!
