Dear Beyoncé,

I’m not entirely sure why you are still ignoring my letters, telephone calls, texts and tags? Maybe your PA has just failed to pass on my messages? All I want is to help you adjust to having a newborn in the house mansion again…and this time it’s twice the work nannies! As Hillary Clinton says, “it takes a village”.

I’ve done a little a lot of research on Baby Center as to what you could expect at this point in time:

Baby Development at 1 Month

  • Holding Head Up
  • Exploring Extremities
  • Learning to Self Soothe
  • May Gurgle, Grunt, Coo and Hum
  • Eyes Can Track Objects

“Beybies” Development at 1 Month

  • Holding Microphone Up
  • Exploring Monogram on Robe, Sequins on Bodysuits and Faux Fur on Knee High Boots
  • Learning to Apply Contouring Makeup to Self Soothe
  • Sings The National Anthem at NBA Games
  • Eyes Will Track Overly Aggressive Paparazzi in a Crowd

You don’t realize how embarrassing it was to shop at the party supply store, picking up decorations for this blog installment and have the retail associate ask:

“Oh! Twins!!! Whose expecting twins?!”

“Beyoncé. Beyoncé had twins. This is for her. And the Beybies.”

This is what I do. For you.

And I even created a special cocktail for you to celebrate with. And Jay Z. (Are you really sure you want to be with him? You are a strong, independent women. With Nannies.)

Beybie Mama Soother

Yours in Décor,

Emily

All current interiors – don’t be concerned – this is not your mother’s (or grandmother’s!) take on country from 1986. Think – antique cabinetry paired with stainless steel appliances, cowhide rugs, Moroccan stools – and faux skulls!
