THIS year has been a lot of things - trying, uncertain and hard, but among all the negativity has been the arrival of many new babies in leeton shire.
While they are too young to know it now, these new arrivals have brought hope, joy and many smiles in what has certainly been a tough year for many in 2020.
These bouncing bundles of joy are the future of our shire and there's no doubting their proud mums, dads, brothers, sisters and grandparents are all thrilled to watch them grow and learn over the coming years.
The Irrigator would also like to give a special shout out to the mums and dads who certainly had more than usual to contend with when going through the "pregnancy process".
Restrictions at medical centres and hospitals made things tough for many, but together you all pushed through and got through it together.
You're the real superstars of 2020, along with all of the health professionals that helped to deliver these beautiful boys and girls safely into this world.
So, if you need a smile to see out this year, why not swipe through our gallery of all of these beautiful photos as submitted by their families.
