Mindy Kaling has a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving — like her daughter Katherine Swati and their twinning fashion sense!

On Thursday, the Ocean’s 8 star, 39, shared an adorable Instagram picture of her and Katherine’s legs as the 11-month-old sat on her lap. Both mother and daughter wore denim and playful pink Converse sneakers as Kaling sweetly put her hand over Katherine.

“Thankful for her. Happy Thanksgiving,” Kaling captioned the snapshot.

Reese Witherspoon commented, “thankful for both of YOU!”

On Tuesday, Kaling psyched herself up for Thanksgiving with a hilarious graphic on Instagram. “Thanksgiving is this week. You guys got your outfits to wear to the living room yet?” the picture quipped.

“The world is my runway,” Kaling wrote alongside the post.

Kaling first shared a glimpse of Katherine on Halloween, when she dressed up as mustard and Katherine looked precious as a lion.

Earlier that month, Kaling opened up to PEOPLE about how she balances parenthood and her career.

“I’m really lucky because I get to create my own job opportunities. Because I do that, I can fit my daughter into my job. It’s a luxury most American women don’t have,” Kaling said.

In May, Kaling told Shape about the special way she has connected with Katherine.

“She is a really happy baby,” Kaling said. “What’s great for me is that my doctor told me that incessant chatter is good for a baby, and I’ve lived my whole life waiting to have a captive audience.”
