If you're looking to start your weekend with a smile, look no further than this adorable shot of Hoda Kotb and baby daughter Haley Joy!

The beaming little one looks ready to hit the beach with mom in her little white hat in a picture Hoda posted to Instagram on Friday.

"Just because,'' Hoda wrote about the sweet pic.

Sending people into the weekend with a smile has become Haley Joy's specialty.

It's been a busy summer for Haley Joy, whom Hoda adopted in February. She watched — OK, occasionally glanced — at her her first Wimbledon match on television.

She also showed off her amazing yoga skills with a baby-style plank pose.

A commenter on the latest pic summed it up perfectly: "She exudes the love she is receiving."

Happy Friday!
