They grow up so fast!

On Sunday, country star Thomas Rhett shared a sweet photo of himself and his wife Lauren Akins with their almost-2-year-old daughter Willa Gray as the family celebrated her upcoming birthday.

“I can’t believe Willa Gray turns 2 this week!! Time goes by so fast,” he wrote alongside the picture of the celebration, which featured a unicorn piñata, jars of candy and an elaborately decorated unicorn cake.

The birthday girl herself was all smiles and wore a crown with the number “2” on it as she posed for the picture — although she, adorably, wasn’t quite able to find the camera.

“This was a unicorn themed party and I can see Willa wanting a horse in the near future. 🦄,” the 27-year-old singer added in the caption.

Earlier this month, Thomas Rhett also shared a family photo including the spouses’ younger daughter — 11-week-old Ada James — at a pumpkin patch.

“To watching hocus pocus 4 million times before Halloween and to carving Willa Gray’s first pumpkin,” the Life Changes hit maker captioned the photo.

After welcoming Ada in August, Akins, 27, told PEOPLE that having a little sister was “world-changing” and “emotional” for Willa, whom the couple adopted from Uganda in May.

But since then, Thomas Rhett has said his little girl has adjusted to having the newborn around.

“For two weeks, [Willa] was like, ‘Who is this person who came in and took some of the attention away from me?’ ” he explained in September. “But now she’s super protective of Ada and is just turning into an amazing big sister.”
