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.
AUGUST 2014: Vale Guthrie Feldman is born!
SEPTEMBER 2014: Savannah and baby Vale delight the TODAY family with a visit.
