“The last year has been filled with tremendous growth, unpredictable/challenging times and most importantly, love beyond my wildest dreams,” Irwin wrote in the caption for the post. “Without them realizing it, my sweet family has given me the greatest gifts every day this year through their extraordinary deeds.”

Irwin wrote: “My darling daughter, the gift of finding beauty in all things and running towards happiness (and bubbles, which to her are the same) with an open heart. I’m grateful for another journey around the sun and another year of doing my best to make a difference in this world.”

Irwin’s list included thanking her in-laws, who live in Florida, for the long-distance family ties. She also thanked Powell for “unwavering support and unending kindness” throughout their two-year marriage.

Powell shared three adorable photos on his own Instagram, capturing her daughter running towards her mother for a big hug.

“Happy Birthday to the most incredible person I know,” he wrote in the caption. “You spend every day of the year thinking of others, I’m so happy that today is about celebrating you. You are the kindest person, caring mom, loving wife and my best friend. I love you (and so does Grace).”

Terri wrote her own tribute to her eldest on Twitter, saying the following alongside a photo of her late husband Steve Irwin, Bindi’s father.

“24 years ago our lives changed for the better,” Terri wrote. “I remember when you were born Steve cried tears of joy and then showed his beautiful little girl to everyone in the hospital. He loved you from the moment he met you and I know he is so very proud of you. Happy birthday my dear Bindi Verklagen.”

Robert posted a photo of the two as little kids with a crocodile in the background. “Thank you for being someone I can always count on for advice, support, kindness and a good laugh,” his tribute post read. “Bindi, you are an absolute boss! Hard worker, great sister and such a wonderful mother for Grace, she’s a happy child! I love you.”

In May, Bindi and Powell exclusively shared some of their reflections on their first year as parents with PEOPLE. The couple was amazed at how much they learned in such a short time.

“You’re given a lot of information, opinion and advice, and as a new parent you’re like, ‘I have to follow this,’ and you feel pressured to try to be the perfect parent and come up with the perfect routine let,” Powell said. “But you are the world’s leading expert on your own baby. So we took solace in that. There’s a lot of great advice out there and we’ve used a lot of it, but you know better than anyone what’s best for your baby.”

“I think the best advice I got was the fact that you can read any baby book, you can take everyone’s advice into account, but at the end of the day you know what works for your child,” Bindi added. “And that was so liberating for me.”
