The Warner Family
(Bianca Penninkmeijer is 62, Harald de Leeuw is 30, Elisa de Leeuw and Jack Penninkmeijer are 27, Johanna Penninkmeijer is 24 and Elisabeth and Margaret Penninkmeijer are 1)
Both Kenneth and I feel pretty lucky that they gave us Julie, she's such a sweetheart. We both went a bit overboard by buying her toys.
I tink we already spend a furtone at Belio's Bunk to make she Julie has everything she wants.
I know we shouldn't buy her so much, but she loves it all, and we just want to make her happy. It's not just for her though, we get a lot of joy just watching her play with the things we bought.
It's nice that she has 2 nieces of the same age to play with. Mom asks us to come over quite a lot, because it's easier to move just Julie, instead of picking up both Elisabeth and Margaret to come down to Simmeria. Julie really loves playing with her nieces.
She loves getting all of her grandmother's attention as well, and can't get enough of playing peek-a-boo.
Whenever mom tears herself away from the children for a minute she keeps asking when we will be adding another one to out family, and I rarely know what to say to her.
Kenneth and I have been talking about adopting another child, we both want to add to our family some day soon.
We already got the ok from the adoptoin agency after yet another inspcetion. The guy from the agency was really pleaced with how well we've adapted to parenthood, and how well Julie found her place in our large family.
As much as we want to add to our family, we kind of like it being just the 3 of us. And we want to focus on Julie as much as possible.
We finally decided that we would again next year. That way we can still enjoy Julie, and by then we hope she can adjust to a brother or sister pretty well.
- Neither of them has rolled to want to adopt another child yet, but Kenneth's IFS is 3 and Lawrence's is 4, so I'm sure they will want another one, and since they can't try for one automously, I'm kind of the one who decides :) so halfway this round, in January 2023 I will start rolling for them again, and I really hope they have another child by Christmas 2023.
- Johanna rolled the "Ooops, preggy"-ROS this round, so that's why this post is labeled 'ros' as well. She already got pregnant last round, but somehow I forgot about it, so that's why the announcement is now already instead of when it's their turn. Johanna is due in December.
- I don't think Bianca Penninkmeijer has something to complain about with all these grandchildren! She already has 3 at the moment, and she will have 3 more by the end of the year, and next year there might be another addition when Lawrence and Kenneth adopt again!
