HOH didn’t get the memo, but it was clearly “Bring Your Baby to Work Day” on Capitol Hill on Tuesday.
Reps. Ben Quayle (R-Ariz.) and Jared Polis (D-Colo.) were spotted going about their business with newborns Everett “Evie” Marie and Caspian Julius, respectively, in tow.
Our tipsters had Quayle banging out quickie diaper changes at his desk, while Polis was seen strolling through the Speaker’s Lobby cradling the blissfully snoozing tot in his arms. Polis later deposited the tiny bundle (baseball binkie secured, giraffe blanket at the ready) in a just-out-of-sight stroller in order to bang out a TV interview.
Mr. Moms of the world, unite!

An earlier version of this story misstated the day Reps. Ben Quayle and Jared Polis brought their children to the Capitol. It was Tuesday.
Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., takes a selfie with his cut-out head during the Hoops for Youth 16th annual charity basketball game held at George Washington University's Smith Center, September 8, 2014. The members of Congress team beat the lobbyist team 46-40. Buy photo here.
