Terri and Bindi Irwin celebrate Robert's 13th birthday with flashback photos

Robert turned 13 on Thursday, and all three members took to social media to share photos to remember Steve and highlight the lovely young adults the children have become.

Daughter Bindi, 18, posted two sweet photos of towheaded little Robert back then:

Now that he's a teenager, Robert has also entered the social media fray and has his own Instagram account, where he posted a pic of his birthday cake:

It's truly heartwarming to see that in the face of tragedy, life can go on ... and dad can still be part of the picture, in his own way.
