One-and-a-half and on the move.

They grow up so fast!

Hoda Kotb is learning the most bittersweet lesson of parenthood firsthand. Speaking with her Today co-host Kathie Lee Gifford on Tuesday, Kotb revealed that her one-and-a-half-year-old daughter Haley Joy isn’t just walking, she’s running!

“I can’t handle it!” Kotb, 54, cried as a video of little Haley running on a beach over Labor Day weekend played on the screen.

“It’s so crazy,” Kotb continued. “The one thing all parents say is ‘you blink, and you miss it.’ That’s actually the truest statement ever.”

“It’s a cliché because it’s true,” Gufford mused.

Kotb, who spent the holiday in the New Orleans area, shared the sweet clip on her Instagram account along with a simple caption, “On the move!”

An Oklahoma native, Kotb welcomed Haley Joy into her life via adoption in 2017 after cancer treatment prevented her from conceiving.

“I just knew she was out there somewhere,” she said of the adoption process back in November.

Seriously, can you think of a cuter family?
