Happy 6-month birthday, Vale! Savannah's baby celebrates with Cookie Monster, Wrangler

We've followed Vale's infant adventures on social media since she was born last August. But this morning we got an extra special surprise: a visit from the little one herself!

Savannah brought her daughter into Studio 1A to celebrate her 6-month birthday, and very special guests were around to lend a hand — er, a paw.

Wrangler, TODAY's Puppy with a Purpose, and Cookie Monster both joined in on the fun! (Puppies and puppets? Could there be a better way for a baby to celebrate?)

“She's 18 pounds of pure, cute, beautiful cheeks!” Al gushed Friday morning.

We can't believe Vale is already half-a-year old — though so many milestones have already been reached! Take a stroll through memory lane with us.
