My Baby is Crawling...

Tilley-Gray is crawling and my life, as I knew it, is over. She's into everything. She isn't interested in her toys or blocks or any kind of mechanical dancing dog toy that I spent too much money on. She would rather put the zebra rug directly in her mouth or try to reach for the internet modem under my desk. She wants to grab the dog's tails and their ears. (Thank you, in advance, for your warnings on how the dogs may snap. I've been warned and I'm taking your advice.)   I can't turn my head for a second. She isn't content with sitting still these days, so I'm enjoying my time with her, keeping her out of the dog's food and out of trouble.  And working on Poplin & Queen. We found some gorgeous fabrics last week and we hit the motherload of vintage furniture. That's why I haven't blogged. Oh, and my nanny is taking a week off to go to some fancy wedding in Aspen. God love her, I don't know what I would do with out her. 
(Giselle and Tom Brady are there and she is sending me photos. I can't wait to see!)

This week, I thought about other working mommas. It can be done, right? It's not about balance, it's about getting it done. Kelly Wearstler does it, no doubt with an army of talented people behind her. 
It's nice to have role models. like Kelly Wearstler, that are strong business woman, creative power houses, and mothers that can also fit Barry's bootcamp and healthy eating in a 24 hour day. 

In other news, Jamie suggested the book gilt by invitation only last week when we met. The book is really good and is an easy read.  Are any of you reading it? I'd love to hear what you think!

Back tomorrow with lots of favorites! Do you have any from this week?


  1. I recently finished reading By Invitation Only as well! I also thought it was a great, quick read, and useful in understanding how an e-commerce start-up works (within an interesting context).

    I think we're all looking to find that balance. So hard, yet worth persisting for.

  2. She is crawling already!? It was only yesterday she was bouncing. Can't wait to see her in action!

  3. Just curious...what was the advice you got about your dogs? I am expecting and have a dog too. I am always looking for more advice on how to bring baby home safely. Thanks!!
