“My baby has grown into a beautiful, independent, compassionate, highly capable young woman,” Mrs. Obama wrote. “But you will always be my littlest pea. I’m so proud of the human you are becoming. Love your mommy.”

Barack’s caption read, “Happy birthday, Sasha! I have loved watching you grow into a intelligent, beautiful, and caring young woman you’ve become. And no matter how old you get – you’ll always be my baby girl. Look at those cheeks!”
