I found out when reading The Big Trade-off today that her mom is hosting Alphabet Soup and today's letter is B.

Here's my list:

  • First my babies: The Biscuit and his Baby sister and My Bakery's Daddy as he is now calling himself. I can't love them without adding to my love for him, so he has to be included. ;-)

  • Obviously blogs. Lots of them, not just mine. I've got to figure out a way to read and write everyday because it makes me feel so much better.

  • Breastfeeding. It is the most Zen part of my day. I have a reason to just sit still and be in the moment and I love that.

  • Binkies. Technically it's a Avent pacifier, but we still call it a binky. I didn't think I would be a binky-loving momma, but since The Cupcake will eat past when she is full and then spit it all back up I had to find something to satisfy her that wouldn't over-fill her tummy. I swear we are taking it away when she's 4 months old like Baby 411 says we should. She already refuses it sometimes in favor of her hand, thank goodness. Still, it would have been hard to get through these 3 months without it.

  • Big Timber, Montana. It's the tiny town my grandparents were from and where they are buried. I can't imagine going up there without stopping in Big Timber for a bit. There's a lovely florist on McLeod Street called The Toggery where we go to get flowers to take to the cemetery. I also stop in to Little Timber Quilts just a few doors down. I'm a sucker for red, white and blue fabrics and last time they had ones that I hadn't seen here in Northern California.

That's enough, don't you think?


  1. Oh, thanks so much for playing along. I like your B words.

  2. Love your list!!!

  3. I love that you call your children "Biscuit" and "Cupcake". So much nicer than mine--Toad and Howler.

    Love it!

  4. How fun!

    We love the binky around here too. But, uh, it seems to have more staying power than four months. :)

  5. I'm just now getting around to catching up with the earlier Alphabet Soup posts...I did E & F and now I am backtracking so I can include the whole alphabet.

    It has been interesting to explore some blog voices I had not been familiar with before. Although I am far removed from my early child rearing days, some of your postings bring back vibrant memories of when my boys (now in early 30's) were wee ones.

    If I had it to do over I'd worry less and laugh more. Enjoy these years, they pass quicker than you would guess.
