Hello my dear Cuties,


I am happy and proud to announce the safe arrival yesterday 16th February 2015 at 11.04am of our 8th grand-child. This will be it - no more!

Our newest addition is a beautiful big boy. He weighed in at 8lb 9ozs and 191/2 inches long (3.91kg and 50cm) and his name begins with another C. So Ben and Naomi have Cooper Raymond, Chase Benson and now Cohen William Pennifold.

1. Ben in scrubs holding Cohen.
2. Cooper looking into crib with Chase on Ben's knee.
3. Cooper with a gentle touch to Cohen's face.
4. All three boys together.

Congrats to all!
Chris you are 8 ahead of me! In the grandkids stakes.
I don't believe that "no more" line. I have a girlfriend who has 3 grandsons. The parents were adamant that they would never have any more children after the first one. So I will believe it in five years time. :-)
When I had number three (he was a big fellow too) I couldn't figure out how he had fitted in me. The Midwife folded him up on her lap - it was amazing!

I asked Ben yesterday if they were going to try for a fourth and he said a definite NO! So that's why I said - no more for us. Love Chris

P.S. There is a lady at Dana's children's school who has 8 children 6 boys and 2 girls! I think I would have given up at 4!!

Congratulations Chris! You surprised me with this one! He is a butterball. I am glad to hear all is well, too. Do you live far from them, or will you be close enough to babysit? You had better take every advantage, if this will be the last, savor the moments.Take care and God bless-Toogie

pennifold by pennifold 17 Feb 2015

Hi Toogie, yes, I kept quiet about this one. He is a butterball! Naomi told me she didn't know how she had a baby this big inside her. She is such a little thing. They aren't too far away, but we don't get to see them much. So I will savor every chance I get to see them all. Love Chris

My best friend has John, Jenny, James and Joanne! All have different middle initials. Our boys all have different initials too, so it should be o.k. I call Ophelie Delphi and Aqualina Jasana and vice versa. Having them all so close it does get confusing at times! Love Chris
