Jenna Bush Hager loves technology, but that doesn’t mean daughter Mila gets to have an iPad at the dinner table.

Although Mila is a little young for high-tech devices, the NBC news correspondent talked about raising her daughter in the age of Instagram during the launch of Bing in the Classroom, a digital literacy initiative that provides safe, ad-free searches for students, in Brooklyn on Wednesday.

“I definitely want to encourage her with technology because I think she’s going to need it to be successful,” she says.

“But you see parents are sitting at the dinner table with a tablet out and the child’s watching some sort of program. I don’t ever want to be that mom.”

Yeehaw!

Former presidential daughter Jenna Bush Hager can’t wait to bring some Texas-sized cheer to 6-month-old Mila‘s first Christmas.

“We usually go down to Texas and we’re going to do that again which will be really fun,” the Today correspondent, 32, told PEOPLE at the ninth annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball in New York City on Tuesday.

“Mila’s been to Texas, but she’s never been to our ranch, so I’m really excited to take her and get her feet dirty in the Texas soil.”

She adds, “Every milestone with her is so fun!”

And once they get there, her daughter’s Christmas Day plans with Mom and dad Henry are already scheduled to be spent in the kitchen, cooking for the proud first-time grandparents, former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush.

Jenna Bush Hager‘s little girl Mila is a happy baby and some credit for that is due to her grandfather, Former President George W. Bush‘s, head of hair. Yes, his hair.

“It’s kind of appealing for a baby to see this white mound of hair,” Hager, 31, told PEOPLE at the Calvin Klein Save the Children Benefit Gala in N.Y.C. on Tuesday. “It’s not something she’s used to seeing.”

On her first day back from maternity leave — Hager and her husband Henry Hager welcomed Mila in April — the Today correspondent shared an adorable video of her father making the 5-month-old giggle for the first time.

“He just did what all of us do,” shares the new mom. But that special moment was key in the pair’s relationship. “She was brilliant because once she laughed at him, there was this instant connection,” Hager adds.
