It’s hard now to imagine a world without the Kardashians, but it’s only been eight years since Keeping Up With the Kardashians premiered on E! in 2007.

In that time, we ve seen Kim, Khloé, Kourtney, Rob, Kendall, Kylie, Kris and Caitlyn grow up, get married, have children, get divorced, fall in love and reveal their true selves over the course of the show’s 10 hilarious and action-packed seasons.

In honor of Sunday’s return of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, we’re looking back at the Kardashian-Jenner family as they were when TV audiences first met them and who they’ve become since.

Sadly, we’re still not sure what Todd Kraines is up to these days.

Then: The star, who once was a personal assistant and closet organizer for Paris Hilton (what?), worked at the family’s clothing store DASH and went on to front the cover of Playboy in the early seasons of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Now: My oh my, how things have changed! Not only has Kim launched different business ventures (hello, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood!) and become the reigning the Queen of Instagram (knocking Beyoncé off the no. 1 spot), she has also started a family. The reality star mogul is wife to Kanye West and is expecting her second child, a younger sibling for daughter North.

Then: When the show first started, Kourtney was known (and still is) as the most sarcastic sibling of the Kardashian clan. Back then, the eldest Kardashian sister was early into her relationship with Scott Disick and had no intention of having kids anytime soon.

Now: Following her on-again, off-again relationship with longtime love Scott Disick, the star became pregnant with her first child, Mason. The star has repeatedly spoken about loving being pregnant, serving as the cover girl for Fit Pregnancy and DuJour during her three pregnancies. She also has a penchant for interior design, having helped her sister Khloé with it and decorating her several homes.

Then: The youngest Kardashian sister is the self-proclaimed most outspoken of her siblings. Since the very beginning, Khloé has told it like it is. Through the years, we’ve seen Khloé date here and there, until eventually tying the knot with NBA player Lamar Odom, whom she wed after a few weeks of dating.

Now: Sadly, Khloé’s marriage to Lamar did not last. After five years together, the Kardashian sister filed for divorce amid rumors of cheating and alcohol and drug abuse surrounding the basketball player. Khloé has since been linked to rapper French Montana and NBA player James Harden, and has most recently appeared in Complex, showing off her svelte new figure. Also important: she makes kick-ass cookie jars.

Then: On Keeping Up with the Kardashians, we were introduced to the youngest Kardashian sibling, Rob, who not only graduated from USC with a business degree, but was for a short time an aspiring model. Rob also launched his own sock line, Arthur George in 2012.

Now: Viewers haven’t seen much of Rob following his 100-lb. weight gain and battle with depression. But the star is making a comeback as we’ve seen in recent Instagram photos and tweets.

KENDALL

Then: The eldest of the Jenner sisters, Kendall was noticeably the most reserved of the bunch; she also knew what she wanted to do career-wise very early on. A few years ago on the show, the teen even created a portfolio she curated to show mom Kris before pitching the idea of visiting a modeling agency.

Now: Dreams do come true! Kendall has finally achieved her dream and now works as a full-time model, having landed countless magazine covers, walked at high-profile fashion shows and is the face of Estée Lauder.

KYLIE

Like most 18 year-olds, Jenner is currently getting used to living away from their parents for the first time amp#8211; except instead of a tiny, crowded dorm room, she moved into a amp#36;2.7 million mansion down the street from sisters Khloamp#233; and Kourtney Kardashian. And she doesn't have to worry about getting an obnoxious roommate either.

Then: Audiences were introduced to the youngest Jenner sister when she was merely a pre-teen. While fun-loving Kylie played a minor role in the earlier seasons, she proved to be goal-oriented, going on to launch a clothing collection for PacSun with sister Kendall.

Now: What hasn’t Kylie done? The youngest Jenner sister has appeared on magazine covers, walked in brother-in-law Kanye West’s fashion shows and has introduced her own app/website, which is holding fans over until the star announces the official launch of her own makeup line. Her relationship with boyfriend Tyga continues to make headlines.

KRIS

Then: As the matriarch of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Kris Jenner has acted as the family’s momager since the very start of the series.

Now: Kris has gone on to have her own talk show, debut a cookbook and continues to support her kids in all their ventures. She filed for divorce in 2014.

CAITLYN

Then: Formerly known as Bruce, Caitlyn was the father figure on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, always down to offer sage advice to his kids. The Olympian would regularly be spotted playing golf and flying planes.

Now: In June 2015, Caitlyn was introduced to the world via her Vanity Fair cover. The Olympian, who came out to the world as transgender on an exclusive interview with Diane Sawyer, has gone on to star in two series documenting her transition, About Bruce and I Am Cait.
