    I also posted on PE but thought I'd post here too. difficult child 1 had her baby last night--3:35 a.m. Seattle time--just missed Halloween! She named him Liam after calling him Jude the whole pregnancy. I like Liam a whole lot better. He was 5 1/2 lbs and 18 1/2 inches (3 weeks early). She says he is really cute and she is ecstatic. She says the hospital will post pics to their website so I'll get to see his pics sometime soon.

    I am hoping little Liam will be the catalyst to some good changes--I can see she is in love with him so that is a good sign. All I can do is take things as they come. I have no plans to go see him at this time, will just have to see how things unfold.

    Congratulations! Becoming a grandmother is a wonderful thing, and I wish you lots and lots of joy. Sounds as if your difficult child is coping well emotionally, and that is great.

    Welcome to the club!

    Love, Esther

    Congratulations to all of you, and Jane, being grandma is just the sweetest lil deal ever.

    Here's hoping lil Liam will bring out the very very best in your difficult child. Motherhood can certainly do that sometimes.

    Welcome, Liam. I like that name, too. :)
    I, too, hope that her love for him will change her life around. There is absolutely nothing like the love for your baby. What a wonderful gift for her.
