Looking back on childhood photos can stir up a lot of emotions.

Of course, there's the feeling of wonder and asking yourself, "Where did the time go?". Other times, you're just trying to figure out what exactly is going on in those photos.

The people in this article took their reminiscing one step further by recreating those cherished memories decades after the original photo was taken.

Sisters become mothers.

These sisters swapped their dolls for their babies when they recreated this photo. They say there's nothing like the bond between sisters and this photo proves it.

Still Dad's little guy.

I love that Dad got some more tattoos since the original, and so did his son! I guess getting inked is something that runs in this family.

Like mother, like daughter.

Can you believe that the baby in the left photo grew up to be the woman on the right? She even dressed her daughter up in the same outfit she wore for the original photo taken 34 years ago.

Still bros

You know, I can believe that these are the same brothers, even though the photos were taken nearly 20 years apart. They have the same mischevious smiles even after all these years.

I've gotta say it: They nailed the outfits.

I'm not sure where they found adult sizes of the original outfits, but they did a really good job recreating them for this photo. Nicely done, ladies!
