The One Direction guys are growing up!

It's Louis Tomlinson's 23rd birthday today (he's the oldest of Team 1D) and to celebrate, we're looking back on five moments where he had us swooning -- and cracking up -- from both this year and way back when. 

5. We have to start with his original U.K. X Factor audition, where a shaggy-haired teen sang "Hey There Delilah." If you actually remember watching this (and that hair!)live , you can count yourself as the most original fan. Show of hands?

4. He's a total goof (and resourceful!)
Remember that time he called a girl's mom from stage?!

3. Umm...like anyone could forget the adorable video for the group's latest single "Night Changes."

2. Tomlinson has always been so excited and loyal about the Doncaster Rovers soccer team. Although his quest to help buy the team earlier this year was unfortunately unsuccessful, his love continues. While we don't want him to take a break from singing, hopefully in 2015 we'll see him on the field again. 

1. YouTubers have helpfully compiled all of his goofy interview moments, so fans can rewatch all of Tomlinson's silly jokes and weird impressions from over the years.

 Never change.
