Blake Lively certainly has her hands full these days with a new baby girl and a quirky hubby (yep, we’re talking about Ryan Reynolds) to deal with on a daily basis, which is why we’re sure she can be forgiven for her belated bday wishes for super-friend Taylor Swift. Though Taylor technically celebrated her 27th birthday a couple of days ago, Blake just sent a message that will totally make you want to give your own bestie a big ol’ hug.

Blake took to Instagram to post a pic of herself and Taylor squished up together and smiling for the camera (although Tay’s smile is more about her smize, as Tyra would say). The famous #girlsquad member added the caption, “People Who I Not Only Really Love, But Also Really LIKE, That Were Born Yesterday: Part 1 of 2.🎈 @taylorswift you know how I feel. 💜”

If you’re curious, the second person celebrating their birthday that Blake was mentioning happens to be actor Bart Johnson, who you might recognize as Coach Jack Bolton from High School Musical.

Clearly it was a day worth celebrating for Blake’s extended squad.
