Today That Baby went down the big slide at the swings for the first time. She's always been a cautious child and had been putting this off for quite a while. She's been fine with the baby slide for ages, so we knew she'd be ok, but she wasn't ready for the really big one, and that was fine with me. She attempted it once aged four but just got stuck with fright at the top. There was a queue of children behind her and I couldn't climb up the front of the slide due to wearing slippery shoes and tights. There is no way I'm taking my tights off in a children's playground. Not for man nor beast!
Anyway, she seems to be getting so much older and grown up that it doesn't feel appropriate for me to refer to her as "That Baby" any more. I know that she doesn't like it and frequently tells me that she's not a baby any more and that her sister is the only baby round these parts.
Since she was a newborn and we brought her home from the hospital we have called That Baby "Biscuit". She used to have a wonderful sweet smell (and still does for that matter) that reminded us of freshly baked biscuits. So I hereby re-dub my darling oldest girl Biscuit and this will be her blog name from now onwards. This Baby's moniker doesn't really make sense without her older sister counteracting her so she too will receive a change of blog name. She is often referred to in our house as Wiggles, Wriggles, the Wiggler or even sometimes just Wigs. It suits her, she's such an active baby, even before she was born she used to dance about and make my tummy shake and throw some crazy looking shapes. So, This Baby will henceforth be known as Wiggles.
And these are my children, my two beautiful girls, my moon and stars, my beloved little darlings. Mama loves you babies!
