Today's edition of 7 Quick Takes Friday is brought to you by the letter B. That's B as in bikes, books, bees, bees (different kind), babies, baptism and barbecue.
but don't get me started on wasps.

--- 5 ---Babies: Wow, my seven-month-old daughter is sneaky. At that age, babies put anything and everything they can get their hands on into their mouths. On Memorial Day, we were innocently eating breakfast at the kitchen table. My wife was eating a bowl of Chex cereal and holding the baby in her lap. Suddenly in the blink of an eye, the baby swatted her hand on the edge of the bowl, dumping the cereal and milk into my wife's lap and on the floor. After being momentarily stunned, we lunged for the paper towels to clean up. Accidents happen, right? Or maybe this was all part of the baby's secret plan. As we started to clean up, I looked up and saw that she had a piece of Chex cereal in her little hand was licking it. So I have to give her credit for creating a diversion to get her hands on the cereal (that she's not old enough to eat).
--- 6 ---Baptism: Two days earlier, our little cereal snatcher was baptized. I don't usually post family photos here, but for your viewing pleasure, here's a picture of her chilling out at the post-baptism party.

Barbecue: Here's the funniest Tweet I saw this week, courtesy of the Braves beat writer at the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Is there really such a thing as Miami-style ribs? I grew up in South Florida and have never heard of that. If Miami is known for ribs, then France must be known for its French fries and French dressing. Bon Appetit.
