This throwback pic of Miley Cyrus as a toddler is excruciatingly adorable

Every time we see Miley Cyrus, she’s performing her butt off on stage, or simply living life as the badass trailblazer that she is. But along with posting many family photos from her Cyrus family reunion, Cyrus stumbled upon an angelic photo of herself as a toddler, before all the mega-fame and dyed hair and tattoos and twerking.

In other words, back in a time that we can’t quite imagine.

And unsurprisingly, she’s the cutest little thing in the world! You can see that hint of cheekiness and attitude creeping in, which makes this photo a total keeper. Ready to go back to where it all began?

Ahhhhhhh! She’s looks soooo innocent. And that long Goldilocks hair! Clearly she already knew how to work the camera like a boss, because her pose is so effortless and confident. Future Hannah Montana, right here.

Here’s a photo from the Cyrus family reunion, with Miley standing out in her signature style. How does she manage to crush it ALL the freaking time? No idea…but she makes it happen in a way that’s all her own.

Feeling so grateful for everything Miley right now, the only problem is…we need more throwback photos from yesteryear! Dig up a couple more, Miley? Please and thank you!
