On Memorial Day, Hoda Kotb shared an adorable photo of both her little girls having some bonding time. Big sister Haley Joy helped mom in her duties.
The "Today Show" co-anchor and her beautiful family spent time at home on Monday after welcoming their newest addition, baby Hope Catherine, through adoption last month.
Little Haley was also adopted two years ago by Kotb and her partner Joel Schiffman. At 54, Kotb went against the grain to start her family later on in life.
She has no regrets, however. The smile on her and her family's faces tell it all. In one picture, Kotb sat on a chair next to Haley as Hope lay on a pillow near her big sister.
Haley held a baby bottle to little Hope and had one hand underneath the newborn's head. She appeared to be doing a great job feeding little Hope, and Kotb's toothy grin showed just how much she was loving the sweet moment.
She captioned the photo:
"Look who is feeding Hope!!! Burp cloth and all!!!"
In another photo, Kotb sat on the chair and again Hope lay on a pillow and over her big sister. This time, Schiffman kneeled next to Kotb and you can see the proud parents smiling down at their two daughters.
"My three [three heart emoticons]" she captured the pictured simply. Other photos shared on Monday revealed that Kotb went to a Memorial Day parade with her girls.
The "Today" anchor has been spending lots of family time with her partner and kids as the summer approaches. Just last week, she took the girls out for a walk in the sun during her days-long getaway in a beach setting.
A shot showed as Kotb stood with Hope held in a baby carrier and Haley waving back at the camera. In the caption was written, "Hello sisters." The two were at the top of some stairs and looked to be just heading out.
She also posted pictures as well as a video of Haley running in the sand. "Summer, here we come," Kotb captured the priceless moment. More photos showed Kotb enjoying time with friends. Another of Haley and Kotb showed them standing just in front of the water "exploring."
Back in April, Kotb was proud to share the very first photos of baby Hope. Of course, the whole family smiled in the shot. Schiffman fed the newborn, but we only saw the top of her tiny head.
"This is us, xo," Kotb captioned the lovely picture. She also shared a picture of Sameha, her mother, cradling little Hope. She cleverly captioned it, "This makes me so happy... my mom filled with Hope."
