It's the most wonderful time of the year! A time when our favorite crop of reality TV moms are festooning their homes with glittery Uggs, binge drinking moonshine-laced eggnog, and hanging with their kiddos. Or, in the case of Teen Mom's Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra, their fleet of beyond adorable dogs.

This happy couple made the difficult decision to place their daughter, Carly, for adoption during MTV's 16 and Pregnant, and they miss her every day — especially during the holidays, a time when families are typically together. Since Catelynn can't celebrate Christmas with Carly, she took it to Instagram to post a sweet flashback photo of herself, Tyler and their little girl, with the caption "Tyler, Carly, and I two years ago crazy house [sic] much u change in 2 years!! #love #lifechangers."

It's amazing how much Carly looks like both her parents, but we're slightly surprised that Catelynn chose to post this photo to Instagram. Carly's adoptive parents, Brandon and Teresa Davis, have been pretty clear that they don't want their daughter's picture floating around social media — and Catelynn even voiced frustration about their rules a few weeks back.

"I want to post a pic of my child's face SO bad!!!!" Catelynn tweeted on November 17, adding "I'm not allowed to post pics of Carly b/c her adoptive parents don't want her to be in the spot light....... Ugh...."

Looks like Catelynn has come to an agreement with Carly's parents, and we're sure Cate wouldn't have posted this flashback picture without their permission. Either that or she's chosen to ignore their request for privacy!

Are you surprised that Catelynn posted this pic of her sweet mini me? Hit the comments!
