We’ve already seen photos of what Emily Maynard looked in high school. Not surprisingly, she was blonde and ridiculously pretty. But what did everyone’s favorite Southern belle look like when she was just a tiny little girl?

On June 27, the Season 7 Bachelorette posted an Instagram photo of herself from back in her elementary school days, likely very close to the age that her daughter Ricki is now.

“In honor of my cousin, @cecille_lawson, who is getting married this weekend! She inspired my fashion choices at an early age :) #iwantedtobeher #tbt” Emily wrote.

At first, we really couldn’t tell which girl was Emily and which was her cousin. But based on photos from Cecille’s Twitter, we’d say her eyes look more like the blonde-haired girl on the right, while Emily’s look more like the darker-haired girl on the left.

Her hair’s not quite dark enough to be classified as brunette, but it’s still a whole lot different from the Barbie blonde locks Emily has today.

Can we take a moment to talk about how adorable the cousins’ ruffled collar dresses are? And those hairbows. We can’t even. These girls are just too darn precious for words.
