Dakota Fanning’s birthday message for sister Elle truly takes the cake

Our favorite sisters are at it again. You know, just loving each other and being the most adorable sisters ever without even trying. In case you need more proof — Dakota Fanning wished her sister Elle a happy birthday via Instagram, and her message makes us want to hug them both and congratulate their parents on being awesome at raising two incredible daughters.

Elle turned 19 years old on Sunday, and her older sister took her birthday as an opportunity to remind her how much she is loved.

Dakota posted an adorable photo of Elle as a little girl being all cute and wide-eyed. And the message that accompanied the pic is making us super emotional.

"Dear Elle, You are fearless and free, and my admiration for you has grown with every year that has passed," Dakota wrote. "I am proud to be your big sister and "teacher," but I am also your humble student in so many ways. When I look at you I do a double take, because I still see this wild eyed, wild haired psycho 😂, but I also see a strong young woman. No one will ever be more proud of you than me. I love you and wish you the best year yet. Happy Birthday Angel. Love, Cody"

Whether they mean to be or not, Dakota and Elle are the epitome of sister goals.

Dakota turned 23 on February 23rd, and Elle shared a video to Instagram of the two of them dancing when they were tiny girls.

"This video pretty much sums up our sisterhood," Elle wrote. "Copying you since the "Santa Claus Lane" days. I love you and wish I was there to bring in your golden birthday with you! @dakotafanning"

We can’t get enough of their sisterhood and friendship. Happy birthday, Elle!
