Another Blessing!

While we were in London, we received a text  message on my phone from John announcing the birth of our seventh grandchild and fourth grandson. The little guy was born on Tuesday 12 June at 15h00 in George, South Africa. Of course, we still had to get home to East Africa before I could receive photos from parents, John and Debbie. 

Here he is:

To my fellow - grandparent bloggers out there: I think Grant and I are beating ya-all with grandchildren. Let me hear from you if you're on our tail or have more than us! 

Grandchildren are the crowning glory of the aged; parents are the pride of their children. Proverbs 17 : 6


  1. Congratulations, Jo and Grant! What a beautiful baby - he looks just like his grand-father, Grant. You must be so proud of your 7 grand-babies!
    love and hugs
    Pete and Rose xoxoxo

  2. Congratulations ! Still 3 to make to reach the proud number of 10 ! lol !

  3. Wow Jo! Congratulations to all.

  4. What a beautiful little one he is, Jo! I know you are thrilled to have another grandson! Delightful captures! Thank you for sharing the joy! Have a great weekend!


  5. So sweet! Congrats to you!

  6. What a beautiful family. Yes! You are in the lead with all those grandbabies.

  7. Talk about being BLESSED! He's Beautiful Jo!!!

  8. Seven, how wonderful. Dick and I have six grandchildren, but his daughters say there won't be any more.
    Isael is adorable, Jo. It just seems like yesterday Elijah was born.
    Congratulations to the Hedges family!
    Love, Kay

  9. Such a sweetie, congrats on your newest grandson. Cute photo.

  10. Oh, Jo, Israel is just so precious. I love the last shot of all his siblings lovingly checking him out. I think we might be done at three grands, unless our youngest son & wife decide to have a child or children.

    I'm catching up on your posts, due to being busy with family members down south (in SoCal) the last 2 weeks.
