Grab the Kleenex! To celebrate the first round of Teen Mom OG kids turning 8, MTV put together a video of Maci Bookout, Catelynn (Lowell) Baltierra, Amber Portwood, and Farrah Abraham reflecting on their kids' childhoods so far. The result is both heartwarming and tear-jerking, and totally honest and real.

The new season of Teen Mom OG starts April 17, and we're more excited than ever to see it after seeing this message from the mamas to their babies. For all the drama we sometimes see on the show, it's nice to be reminded that these four ladies are moms first, and they adore their kids just like any other parent out there.

The craziest part is that the babies are now turning 8 years old, exactly half the age their moms were when we met them on 16 and Pregnant back in the day. Time definitely flies!

Amber gushed about how she knows Leah is going to do great things one day, and she loves her daughter's big dreams of becoming a president or an astronaut. She also opened up about the time she was in jail for a year and half a few years ago, and said, "I put myself in a hard situation because I wasn't there for you, and I'll explain that to you later. But you're not gonna mess up like I did. I will make sure of that."

Maci remembered getting emotional about her son Bentley going to Kindergarten. She said it "killed" her, because, "I was so excited for you, but it was quite emotional for me because you're my baby, and you weren't my baby anymore."

Farrah almost broke down in tears as she said she was "seriously thankful" for Sophia helping her become the best mom she can be. "It makes my heart proud ... There's a big world out there, and who knows what you're going to grow up to be."

Catelynn Baltierra even managed to slip in a joke for her toddler daughter Nova (she and her husband, Tyler Baltierra, gave their firstborn Carly to adoption when they were 16). "Don't make me a grandma!" she laughed. "Just kidding. You can make me a grandma, but just ... I have to be old!"
