It’s very clear that Savannah Guthrie’s daughter, Vale, marches to the beat of her own drum.

This one happens to be a gift she received from her aunt — and it appears to be driving her parents a bit bonkers.

The TODAY anchor’s 3-year-old daughter seems to be enjoying a toy drum she received, according to a photo tweeted out by Savannah’s husband, Mike Feldman.

“When your sister buys your daughter the gift that will keep on giving. Thanks?” he wrote with a photo that showed Vale, the drum around her neck, a drumstick in each hand and a smile on her face.

As many parents know, the toy drum might be small in size, but the noise it pounds into the brains of grown-ups is mighty.

Savannah quickly fessed up to her part of the uproar.

“I suggested the drum for a gift. Why why why,” she wrote, retweeting Feldman’s post. (Looking to make a similar mistake? Vale's drum is $36 on Amazon.)

Vale appears to be enjoying a wonderful holiday seasons so far. In addition to getting a fun new toy, she recently got to visit one of her idols, Peppa Pig.

The face-to-snout meeting came when Peppa, a rockstar among the preschool bunch, paid a visit last week to TODAY's Studio 1A. Vale initially appeared stunned by her brush with fame, but began jumping up and down with excitement after the shock wore off.
