While siblings definitely have their moments of tension (including during lengthy car rides and when they want a toy that their sister or brother has), they have a very special connection. Many people grow up and admit that they appreciate having a sibling. If any of us have a sister, we would say that the experience is truly special. And of all the sisters in the spotlight who we're always talking about, Kylie and Kendall Jenner are some of the most fascinating.
It would be easy to think that Kylie and Kendall are fraternal twins because they seem so totally inseparable and they are often photographed together. The sisters are actually a few years apart: Kylie was born in 1997 and is 21 years old, and Kendall was born in 1995 and is 23 years old.
Although we know so much about Kylie and Kendall, we might not have seen a lot of photos of their past. They were really cute kids, and there are so many snapshots of them growing up that are so fun to look at. Of course, we definitely haven't seen many photos of the other Jenner kids growing up, since we don't hear much about them.
Here are 19 pics of Kylie and Kendall Jenner growing up, along with five of the forgotten Jenners.
We love this photo of Kylie Jenner as a baby, which is something that she shared after having her own baby girl, Stormi. The cute squishy face that Kylie is making is priceless. Chances are, this might be the only baby pic that we've seen of the star, so it's definitely cool.
E online quoted Kylie as saying about being a mom to Stormi, "I feel like it's just been so amazing, and so much fun. I'm learning so much more about myself and life, and it's been such a great experience. Of course there's hard times and stuff… even in the beginning, just not sleeping, the nights, like, baby blues… and all the ups and downs."
Since the age difference between Kylie and Kendall is around two years, it's clear that they are super close. We often see them photographed today these days and think that they look like the best of friends, and that is certainly true of this pic from back in the day.
It's so sweet to see this picture of Kylie and Kendall wearing party dresses and hugging each other. If we're girl moms, then we know that girls would rather wear pink and purple than any other colors. They are seriously popular shades. The Jenner sisters look like they're having a great time at a party here.
Kendall was three and Kylie was a year and a half when this photo was taken. It's really cool to see the girls with their big sister Kim Kardashian.
It's easy to assume that the three sisters are around the same age since nowadays, when we see them all hanging out as a family, they look like they're all so grown up. But, of course, there is actually a big age difference between them: Kendall is 23, Kylie is 21, and Kim is 38 years old.
Kim and Kylie seem really close now: According to Teen Vogue, they're collaborating on a perfume.
Were the Jenner sisters early starters of the athleisure trend? After seeing this photo of them, we could definitely say yes because they look so great in these sporty and casual outfits.
It really can't get sweeter than Kylie and Kendall in matching Adidas outfits. Kendall's hair is pretty short and she's got her arm around a young Kylie who has her own fairly short hair up in a tiny ponytail at the top of her head.
This is quite the '90s look, we have to say, and it looks really comfortable, too.
What a cool photo: from left to right, we have Khloe, Rob, Kylie, Kim, Kourtney, and Kendall. Kendall is grinning widely and Kylie looks a bit more reserved, so it's fun to see their different personalities here. We don't always see Rob with the rest of the Kardashian-Jenners these days and this is a sweet photo of them all.
Everyone in the family looks great and we can totally tell that they were going to make it big. And, of course, we get another peek at Kendall's awesome bangs. How is her hairstyle so good?!
Looking at some photos of Kylie and Kendall growing up, we might say that they appear to be totally regular kids who grew up like anyone else. Maybe they even argued over toys or who got what for Christmas.
This photo of Kylie, Kendall, and their parents at a movie premiere reminds us that these girls grew up in a pretty luxurious family and that they experienced a lot of fabulous things. This photo was taken at the premiere of The Emperor's New Groove in 2000. They both look adorable and we love the fancy party shoes and tights.
Khloe posted this picture of Kendall Jenner wearing a party hat... or two party hats to be totally accurate. We really feel like we're getting a glimpse into her childhood.
We can probably guess that Kendall was over the moon about Stormi coming into the family, and that is definitely true. According to Elite Daily, Kendall told Vogue, “It’s not that it’s more exciting than any other births in the family. It’s different exciting, because she’s my baby sister who I grew up with. We all grew up in twos: Kourtney and Kim grew up together; Rob and Khloé; Brandon and Brody; Burton and Casey, and then Kylie and I. So to see my best friend growing up have a baby? It’s already made us even closer."
We all played dress up as little girls. On magical afternoons, we wore princess costumes, other outfits that were typically reserved for Halloween, and if we were super lucky, our mom let us swipe some red lipstick on. Little girls are always fascinated by their mom's makeup bag, that's for sure, and it seems like Kendall Jenner was, too.
We love seeing this picture from her childhood since she's wearing some makeup and has the cutest pink bow sitting on her head. We can totally say that Kendall looks the same as she did back then, just older of course, and she was a really sweet kid.
The light pink dresses, the matching tights, the ballet shoes, the little buns... There are too many cute things happening in this photo of Kylie and Kendall from when they were growing up.
We can guess that Kendall is on the left side of the photo, grinning, and she's got her arm around a young Kylie (who is wearing the best frilly white socks). It's so interesting that we can look at any photo of the Jenner sisters from when they were children and just know that they have always been so close. It's definitely what moms always want to see.
This is the second photo that we've seen of Kendall Jenner wearing a bow in her hair, so we can say that she was definitely a big fan of bows.
Bows are incredibly sweet and innocent. It's funny that when we get older, we don't really want to wear clothing that has bows on it and we forgo the bows in our hair. We claim that it looks too young and we want a more mature look. But maybe we should reclaim the bows because after seeing these photos of Kendall Jenner, we realize how great they are. (Okay, if we don't want to wear bows, then at least our kids can...)
Of a photo of Kylie and Caitlyn Jenner when she was a kid, People magazine wrote, "Anyone else hoping to see Kylie and Caitlyn Jenner recreate this super sweet candid moment at a bowling birthday party?"
Of this photo of Kylie bowling, People wrote, "And this one too, duh. Especially the leopard print and glow necklace combo."
Even if we don't love bowling, we can admit that this is a really cute picture of Kylie Jenner, and we agree with People that the leopard outfit is really great. There is something special about a young kid wearing bold patterns. We especially love it when a kid will mix patterns because they're expressing themselves through fashion.
Calling all girl moms: wouldn't we love to see our girls high-fiving like these two were back when this photo was taken? If they could wear their hair in rollers too, that would be a bonus because it's so great. We can totally see the love that the two sisters have for one another.
Now that Kylie and Kendall are older, they've been interviewed about being sisters. In an interview with W magazine, Kendall said, "We’ve always been very close, but we would butt heads all the time. This has made her a bit more loving toward me." We might not have expected to hear that they have had some arguments, but of course they have, right? They are sisters after all and that's what happens.
Of all the hair accessories that were worn a lot in the '90s, headbands are definitely one of the most popular. This photo of Kylie and Kendall Jenner wearing red headbands is really priceless.
We would guess that Kendall, with really cute bangs, is on the left and Kylie with her stylish bob hairstyle is on the right. Even as kids, the sisters had really great hairstyles. How do kids look so awesome with bangs?! So many of us wish that we could wear our hair like this but, alas, it doesn't seem easy to pull off.
Pigtails are an incredibly popular hairstyle for little girls. This photo of Kylie Jenner in pigtails just makes us happy. It also looks like she had lost a tooth, which adds to how cute it is.
Today, at 21 years old, Kylie is a bigger fan of hairstyles such as messy buns, and we often see her with her hair down, whether it's a bob or past her shoulders. Kylie's pink ponytail holders also match the pink in the pattern on her shirt. So stylish.
It looks like the girls had a lot of Adidas clothing while they were growing up: we see them wearing Adidas t-shirts in this photo, and in an earlier picture, they had on sweatsuits from the brand.
Of course, we're totally focused on how cute the sisters look since they were missing a few teeth when this photo was snapped.
If our kids are older and they've already lost their teeth, we might be feeling a bit emotional and nostalgic thinking about those times. We wonder how much the tooth fairy paid the Jenner girls?!
Kendall Jenner posted this picture online of her and Kylie as kids with braids in their hair, and it reminds us of family vacations when we did the same... and maybe of more recent trips when our kids got similar braids, too.
From all the photos that we've seen of the sisters growing up, it would be easy to think that they were the best pals ever. While they seem to have been close, Kendall has talked about how Kylie had more friends than her. Cosmopolitan quoted Kendall as saying, “I was sitting in my room a lot of days crying because Kylie had so many friends, and I didn’t know what to do, and it’s gonna make me emotional right now. I really was like, ‘I’m never gonna have friends.'"
Kendall Jenner's bangs were totally great in this photo of her with her parents. The fact that she looks kind of tired makes this photo so simple to relate to, right? What parent can't admit that they have brought their little one out with them and then realized that their kid was really exhausted?
We've said it and we'll say it again now: we really appreciate Kendall's bangs. If we want bangs, we should honestly bring our hairstylist a photo of Kendall as a child and say, "Those bangs, please and thank you."
Little girls are into princess-style dresses and it seems like Kylie and Kendall Jenner are no exception. This is a great snapshot of them growing up and wearing beautiful dresses... once again in purple and pink. See?! Little girls really like these colors.
Come to think of it, we would really like to wear those skirts. They kind of look like tutus and we could wear them with t-shirts and jean jackets and it would be a really cool outfit.
This photo of Kylie and Kendall dressed up as Dorothy from The Wizard Of Oz is so perfect. Every detail was attended to: the blue and white gingham dresses, the little red shoes, and the dog, Toto.
According to Perez Hilton, Kendall shared this picture and wrote, #TBT: The Dynamic Duo. This photo was taken when we went to see “The Wizard of Oz” on stage. It was 1999, so I was only 4 and Kylie was 2. Like I’ve said, my mom lived for a twinning moment when we were little! But I have to admit, this one was really cute even down to our little Toto bags. Maybe this is when my love for musicals and gingham started!"
And here are five photos of the forgotten Jenners...
When we think about the Jenners, we think about sisters Kylie and Kendall, but they have siblings, too. Caitlyn Jenner and Linda Thompson are parents to Brody Jenner and Brandon Jenner, and Caitlyn Jenner and Chrystie Jenner are parents to Cassandra (Casey) Marino.
This is a great photo that gives us a glimpse of Brody, Casey, and Brandon Jenner when they were kids. They look like such a cute group of siblings, and Casey has amazing bangs, too, just like Kendall.
These days, we know Brody Jenner from his time on The Hills. But he's also a member of the Jenner family. This is a cute photo of him back when he was little and we have to say that his wild blonde curls are really amazing.
Okay, so everything in this photo -- the blonde curls, the tiny white shirt, the tiny black suspenders, and the little white bow tie -- is cute. We honestly wouldn't recognize Brody since he has brown hair now.
Cassandra Marino, who is called Casey for short, has two kids now, Francesa and Isabella, with her husband, Michael Marino. This is a sweet picture of her when she was growing up and we can see her celebrating Christmas with her siblings.
It doesn't seem like these Jenner siblings are all that connected to Kendall and Kylie: according to InStyle, when Brody was getting married, he said, “My two little sisters, we never even heard from them. They never even RSVP’d I don’t think.”
Brandon Jenner is 37 years old and currently divorcing Leah Felder whom he married in 2012. The two were in a band together called Brandon & Leah.
We love seeing this picture of little Brandon with his dad. Brandon has some serious bangs, so maybe this is a Jenner thing?! We also love his little shoes.
Although this family has definitely been through a lot and there are often stories about the drama, it's nice to see a snapshot of parent and son looking really happy.
We might not recognize Brody Jenner here, either, since he looks super different now. Looking closer, we can totally see the resemblance (and we love his cute missing tooth).
Brody got married to Kaitlynn Carter in 2018 and there is a lot of talk about how his Kardashian siblings (and Kylie and Kendall, too) didn't go to the wedding.
We definitely can't help but call these siblings "the forgotten Jenners" since we rarely see photos of them... and they aren't exactly hanging out with the rest of the family. It's cool to see a glimpse of them growing up.
