Ugh, this is just about the cutest thing we’ve ever seen! Just in case you didn’t believe Kim Kardashian when she said baby North West and her older cousin Penelope Disick were besties, she’s got photographic evidence. This Instagram share of Penny hugging Nori is tugging at our heartstrings big time. Couldn’t you just die?

Penelope is nearly a year older than her little coz (Penelope's birthday is July 8, 2012, while North was born June 15, 2013), but it seems that’s not getting in the way of these two being pals. Back in September, Kourtney Kardashian told People magazine that her daughter was immediately in love with her cousin Nori. “Whenever [Penelope] sees [North] — the second she walks into the room, Penelope gets so excited.”

While Penelope immediately took a liking to her baby cousin, four-year-old brother Mason was a little jealous at first — namely because Auntie Kim wasn’t spending as much time with him. “He doesn’t understand because he’s not the big center of attention,” Kourtney explained. “He has a special relationship with his Aunt Kiki and [North] takes away from that so he’s still kind adjusting.”

Hopefully Mason’s gotten over it at this point, because it looks like Penelope and Nori are BFFs for life!
