Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes‘s little girl is growing up!

Suri, here on her way to an Easter party in N.Y.C. on March 31, turns 7 today.

And the fashionista-in-training has a lot of milestones to celebrate.

Not only did she start first grade at a new school, but she also tried out a new hairstyle — super short bangs!

On Wednesday, Cruise called into Ryan Seacrest‘s KIIS-FM radio show and the actor discussed his plans for Suri’s birthday celebration.

Look who’s growing up!

His father Ben Affleck (here with his little man in Beverly Hills on Jan. 25) may have won another Oscar (this time for Best Picture), but it’s Samuel‘s recent milestone — he turns 1 today! — that has his family abuzz.

Two days after his parents wrapped up a whirlwind awards season, the tyke headed out with mom Jennifer Garner and big sisters Violet, 7, and Seraphina, 4, to a Brentwood, Calif. toy store Tuesday.

Not sure what cool playthings the family picked up, but we’re positive Samuel’s birthday party will be a homey, low-key affair befitting the Garner-Affleck clan.

Happy birthday Josselyn Sydney!

On Sunday, Sept. 16, Samantha Harris broke out the balloons to celebrate her daughter’s fifth birthday with an extra-special backyard bash.

“I can’t believe Jossie is already 5! It feels like it was yesterday when I announced I was pregnant with her live on Dancing with the Stars,” Harris tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Combining two of the birthday girl’s latest faves into one eclectic celebration, the festivities included a sweet Rapunzel tiered cake with a vanilla and chocolate swirl base topped off with red velvet and cream cheese frosted layers.

“We did a mash-up of Disney princesses and Nickelodeon’s Fresh Beat Band,” Harris shares of the big day.

“We had a Tangled-themed cake and table settings with a bouncy house that had all the Disney princesses on it with music from the kids TV show The Fresh Beat Band cranked up in the background. Josselyn was in heaven.”
