New Baby and Bully for Blogland

Welcome to little Kate, our newest grandchild
Certainly one of the prettiest babies around . . .
Even her big sister thinks so, it seems
Congrats to DS1 and DDIL1
You've done so well!
Its great to be a granny again and have a new tiny person to love together with the other 5.

There's the "Lent for Liam" project -
And I also heard this:
One of us posted about how she was having a tough time and she said within minutes she had such encouragement and help from fellow bloggers that she felt she could cope again.
Bet there are others of us who could agree that we've had similar support from this crew . . .
Now thats pretty impressive for cyber-space, don't you think?
Cyber space can be less space . . .

Oh congrats on being granny again! I just know that this little one will be another unique blessing in your life.

The whole Liam project is amazing...I am so glad I met the best friends ever in cyberspace.

Ah my cyber-friends, thanks.
Its so nice to have such instant heartfelt fellow rejoicings.

And Shayne, I dunno if its good or bad but it just is true, for me too.
Maybe because we are so instantly accessible?
But I'm not going to analyse it; just enjoy it :-)

Meriel - mmm, something about sleeping pics, I agree.
Re other comment - what a surprising thing to say!
But nice to hear
You obviously like the way my life looks.
Me too :-)

Kirsty, I can't believe you mentioned Mel and the thought of more children in one sentence: don't you know she READS this?!

I still have one pair of kids who haven't started reproducing so I could give your Mom a run for her money yet.
