Where has the time gone?! It seems like it was just yesterday when Hoda Kotb was posting adorable videos online of her 1-year-old daughter, Haley Joy Kotb, in diapers. Though Haley is still just as adorable as she was when she made her debut on social media, a new video posted by her mom shows that she’s gotten a lot bigger over the past few months.
While dancing to “Chinese Boxes” by Kim Richey, Haley Joy pranced around her gorgeous home as her mom captured the cute moment on camera. “Hey #kimrichey we are loving #chineseboxes in our house tonight xx @kimrichey,” the mom-of-one captioned the sweet video of her daughter, which has over 299,000 views and counting.
“She is growing up way too fast❤️❤️❤️,” one fan wrote in the comments section, and another said, “I can’t believe she’s that big already, AND she’s so darn adorable.” A third joined into the conversation and wrote, “She is the sweetest, you are so blessed! I watched this like three times, lol. Happy new year!!”
Over the holidays, Hoda worked hard to make sure that she documented all of Haley Joy’s milestones for her second Christmas. In early December, she shared a heartwarming video of her partner, Joel Schiffman, lighting their Christmas tree with Haley Joy. Hoda adorably counted down from five before her daughter added the last ornament to the already decorated tree.
“Motherhood is — it’s the best job I have ever had in my life, ever,” Hoda shared to Closer Weekly in a previous interview. After battling breast cancer a decade ago, Hoda said that she was lucky to have Haley Joy in her life. “She’s proof of everything,” Hoda recently gushed to the Thrive Global Podcast. “She’s the best!”
