Holly and Jeff have a new son. They met Hank around 10:30 Eastern time last night. Holly says he is a boy “with the most infectious laugh and an incredible sense of adventure, whirling like there’s no tomorrow.”
“On the van ride home he was looking around. We hit some big bumps which proved to be worth a laugh. More Magnadoodle fun and by the time we were out of the van we were MaMa and Baba.”
So very cool!

The other day when I thanked my top eleven referrers, Becky asked, “How does one determine who one’s top 11 (or 10 or even 2) referrers are?”
I mainly use MyBlogLog, a free service which shows you a list of your top ten referrers every day. They have a paid option which offers up-to-the-minute stats, but I just have the freebie service, which updates once daily and offers me a week’s worth of stats at a time.
It also gives—and this is really the point of their service—stats for which of your outgoing links people are clicking on the most. For example, I can see that only nine of you clicked on the Rilke link last Poetry Friday to read the whole poem. Overall traffic was slower than usual that day, so maybe all my poetry readers are on vacation?
I also find it interesting that on an average day, Lilting House is still only getting about two thirds the traffic of Bonny Glen. Which means a whole bunch of you haven’t heard our big news yet. You’ve missed a lot of Wonderboy excitement too!
