Whenever I go back to my parents' house, nostalgia hits and one of my favorite things to do is look at old family photos. I always find some gems of me and my siblings playing, some iconic first-day-of-school pics (the ones with braces and pigtails were real cute), and, of course, adorable baby pics. If you're sitting on cute snaps that you're ready to share with the world, I've compiled a list of Instagram captions for baby pictures of yourself that'll make for a quality #TBT post.
Throwback pics are a great way to celebrate how far you've come, admire what you were like before, and see how those two are the same. I'm always amazed when I look at old pictures of myself, because I think I look exactly the same. I make the same faces, I smile the same way, and you can tell how cocky I was just by the way I was standing in the pictures.
No matter what anyone else might think, you were definitely the cutest baby you've ever seen — and your mom probably agrees with you, too. (Don't tell your siblings, though.) It would be such a shame if your friends now didn't get to see what you looked like as a baby, so of course you have to share the photos.
So, what are you waiting for? Round up some of your favorite, most adorable (or embarrassing) baby pics and get to posting.
