the ages you describe won't affect your numbers (i.e. you can still have your under 8s as well) as long as it doesn't impact on your ability to care for the younger ones (i.e. under 8). So you will be OK!

you are allowed to have older children as well as your numbers, so you can still have the children you currently have plus these children as their ages wont count towards your numbers
