(CNN) -- Talk about multitasking.

A baby in one arm and State of the Union preparations in the other, the House GOP's highest ranking woman Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers readied for the Republican response to President Barack Obama's annual address while caring for her two-month old baby.

McMorris Rodgers posted the photo to her Instagram account on Friday, four days ahead of the highly-anticipated address.

She posted: "I've got my #SOTU remarks in one hand and 2-month old Brynn in another. It really doesn't get much better than this!"

The five-term Washington Republican was tapped by congressional leaders to deliver the party's response, emphasizing her family's story. Along with the announcement, the GOP also released a video showing McMorris Rodgers getting her kids ready in the morning, discussing working in her father's family owned agriculture business and touting that she was the first child in her family to graduate from college.

In addition to her second daughter, Brynn Catherine, pictured in the Instagram photo, McMorris Rodgers also has a son, Cole, who was born in 2007 with Down syndrome.

The birth of McMorris Rodger's second child, Grace, in 2010 marked the first time a member of House leadership delivered a baby. She is also the first woman to have three children while serving in Congress.
