Now that the new year is here, it looks like some of your fave “friends” are celebrating. More specifically Noelle Sheldon, one of the twins who played Ross and Rachel’s baby daughter Emma on Friends, has a very special message for fans of the show.

If you watched Friends way back in 2000 (which you probably did), you might remember Emma’s first birthday party. In the episode “The One with the Cake” Chandler snarked, “Hi Emma. It’s the year 2020. Are you still enjoying your nap?” as the sleepy kiddo napped through her bday bash.

Now that it’s actually 2020, the IRL Emma is answering back. Sheldon recently posted a New Year’s Day pic of herself Photoshopped into Central Perk, with the caption, “Just woke up from the best nap of all time, happy 2020!! (ft. my poorly done photoshop) Hope everyone has an excellent year full of family, friends, and laughter!!”

Along with comments from Friends fans, Sheldon’s twin Cali (who also played Emma) added, “Finally.” We totally agree!
