One of our favorite things on social media is when country stars shares pictures of their children. Whether they’re newborns in the hospital or grownup “kids” having babies of their own, making our favorite celebrities grandparents, we just never tire of seeing these adorable families grow.

And speaking of growing, it looks like Thomas Rhett and Lauren Akins’ little girls, Willa Gray and Ada James, have both hit growth spurts!

The precious sisters recently spent some time with the grandmothers, who shared pictures of the cutie patooties on their social media pages, and it seems that, overnight, Willa Gray is no longer a toddler, but instead an adorable little girl. Her younger sister Ada James is now sitting up on her own and is a beautiful little chunky monkey.

Thomas Rhett’s mother, Paige, shared a photo of her two granddaughters, along with one of her friends’ granddaughters, and the girls seem to be having a big time with books and blocks. But what we can’t get over is little Ada now sitting upright, and how absolutely yummy her cheeks are!

Paige writes, “Twenty-something years ago we were watching our kids play, now we are watching our grandkids play. I wouldn’t trade it for anything!! #oldfriendsarethebestfriends #grandkids

We also remember that Lauren and Thomas said that Willa initially had a little trouble adjusting to having a baby sister in the home, but she seems to be enjoying her playmate now!

Lauren’s mother, Lisa, also shared a few photos of the girls having some teepee time and, from the looks of the toys they’re playing with, they are already making their own music. Drums, maracas, cymbals and a tambourine surround the girls, as do a dolly and a doggy!

It’s about balance, right ladies?

It looks like the girls were spending time with their beautiful Grandmoms (and seriously, Paige and Lisa are both gorgeous) while Dad was on tour, including his big concert stop at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

And Mom spent a girl’s night with two other new moms who are married to country stars—Jason Aldean’s wife, Brittany, and Tyler Hubbard’s wife, Hayley.

And this is how empowered and independent young girls grow up to be empowered and independent young women. It’s a legacy.
