  13. What a beautiful couple, and what a beautiful baby with a gorgeous Dugger size head, thank goodness for c-sections :-)

  14. The men should be leading the way in a hands off , courtship relationship!! Men should lead the way from the beginning of a relationship in all areas! Being so young might not be such a good idea!?!

  15. I was watching an old show today -- the one where they moved into their new house -- and they show the family playing Amazing Grace, with Josh on the piano and the other kids on the violins. The first shot of Joshua's hands playing the piano showed a gold band on his ring finger, then it was gone in subsequent shots. Did anyone else catch that? A promise ring, perhaps?

  21. Do Josiah and Marjorie have chaperones?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Has Josiah finished his field of study? If so, what is it? I missed that part, I knew he was at the camp, but is he a counselor there? II'm I

    please don't post negative comments.
    If you haven't got anything good to say don't say please don't say it at all.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Congrats on your courtship Josiah

    ReplyDelete
  32. I agree with another person's comment to let the other children share in the spotlight. The others are just as important and special!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I see my comment didnt make the cut again...other people's comments are off-topic too here. I was just wondering when we will begin to see Jessa's updates?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Lily and Ellie,
    I saw something on the Internet yesterday about Jana leaving 19 kids and counting...but I'm not sure if it's true or not. Do you know anything about that??
    Also could you please post Jill's delivery episode on here (or at least a link to it) when it's available to watch on the Internet? I couldn't watch it the other day and was so bummed! :(
    Thanks! :)
    Annette

  35. Marjorie is really pretty! :) is she wearing skirts now all the time or not til after she marries Josiah? (if they get married lol)
    I hate how everyone makes such a big deal about Jana being single...so what! She's waiting for the right one and just cuz she's 25 (?) doesn't mean she should be married by now! She's beautiful and if God wants her to get married then she will. Not everyone has to get married tho!


    Thanks for this blog lily and Ellie! :)

  36. I watch your TV-program from Denmark - I love the way You live your life. You are such an inspiration for all of us. I am blessed with 4 children myself :-)

  37. This isn't a competition. It ain't about which kid can get the most headlines. Not sure why people feel it is.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Really hope Marjorie can bring a new energy to the family.... Something we can rely/bond with a bit more.... Big hug to Israel. Hope his mum gets better soon.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Could you please let us know if Josh and Anna bought a house and are moving back to Arkansas as reported on a major news outlet? If not, it would be good to hush the ugly rumors the press keeps circulating regarding them. Isn't this blog supposed to be the truth on all things Duggar?

    ReplyDelete
  40. What a beautiful couple! And look at that adorable boy!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Baby Isreal is such an adorable little guy!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Wow Izrael is looking like a 4 month old already!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I just think Josiah and Marjorie are to young to be courting and talking marriage.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Marjorie is a beautiful girl and they make a gorgeous couple. I always thought Josiah was a cutie. Remember how funny he used to be? Best of luck to the new couple. I think it is awesome that they are enjoying music together. !!

  45. Israel is so adorable! :) Love the pic of Josiah and Marjorie! They are so cute together! So happy for them!

    Love in Christ,

    Mary :)

  46. As Anonymous #2 said there are other Duggar children I would like to see on the program and their everyday lives. Also tired of seeing Jim Bob kissing Michelle so much on TV. I am sure he loves her.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Israel looks just like Jill, or any one of the Duggars. Could easily be Jessa's baby. Very cute little boy.

    ReplyDelete
  48. cute pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  49. To: Anonymous #2 Thats a really rude thing to say not all 18 other kids are having their first born child.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Josiah looks so happy! Marjorie always looks so joyful! and Israel looks like his Mumma! Blessings to all the Duggars.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love watching the show. I want to see more about Josiah and Marjorie. will they be the next ones to get married. the Dugger family is growing so fast.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I think Israel has his mommas eyes! He's scrumptious! I'm excited to see another Duggar wedding in the not too distant future :) Hopefully we'll get to know Marjorie better through up coming episodes. So excited for all of the Duggar family, they're blessed with love of God and love of family. ♥♥♥♥

  53. I appreciate all the updates of the Duggar family but I have to agree with 2 common comments I see over and over. I am getting annoyed at the use of the name "Baby Dilly" when Israel has a name. Let us all call him by his name now. Also, can we please hear about all the Duggar children that are at home that we don't hear much about, like what they each are up to for example?! I still like an occasional update on the Seewalds or Dillard family but please don't smother us with only news on these two newly married ones. Thank you for reading and for all you do to keep us all updated!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Anonymous # 2 they do a good job talking about the the Duggar kids as new things happen. I for one enjoy seeing all the new pictures of Israel. Yes I like hearing about the other kids too but they will talk about them as things happen with them. For ones that don't want to hear about certain ones, don't comment about them wait until their is something mentioned that you want to see or hear about. Thank you Duggars for keeping us updated on baby Israel. Looking forward to Jessa and Ben's' baby and Josh and Anna baby along with Josiah and Marjorie courtship update.

  55. I think they win the "cutest couple ever" award!!!!!! Marjorie is gorgeous...she will be a great addition to the Duggar family!

  64. Hrs got his mommas lips

    ReplyDelete
  65. Beautiful big baby boy!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I watched the 2 hour episode about Israel's birth.....it was hardly about that at all. Once again, TLC had waaay too much history, earlier footage, we had to relive Michelle's delivery experiences
    AGAIN, which this episode wasn't about HER deliveries...
    I am quite sorry for Anna...as there were "no holes barred" from any of her labors and difficult deliveries...they showed it ALL, as for Jill, we hardly saw anything about her laborious labor and delivery. Quite a different story than what was put out there in print previously. Why the discretion with Jill and exploitation of Anna's private moments? Why the discrepancy between the account of what was in print and what was filmed and aired? I would like to know...step up to the plate, please Duggars or TLC, and respond. Thank you.

  69. I think Israel looks like Jill, for know. Congratulations on the newest Duggar courtship! For those that have left comments that are unkind or they are tired of seeing this or that, you can always unsubscribe or watch something else on TV.

    Just wait, Anna is due sometime in July, Jessa is pregnant, Josiah is courting, so when Anna's baby comes and Jessa's baby comes and when Josiah gets married it will be all about them :) :)
    Love Jesus

  71. Beautiful baby and family. Welcome Israeli

    ReplyDelete
  72. I agree with #2, let's stop talking about Jill and her baby for awhile. Why can't we hear about some of the other children?

    ReplyDelete
  73. Happy for the courting couple! I hope they don't get married any time soon.... I think they are too young!! Israel is getting cuter by the day. He is so blessed! We all are because we know and live this large family!!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Beautiful Baby,I love hearing from Jill and her family..I love the show!!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I feel Josiah and Marjorie are way too young to be courting. Why can't they wait two or three years?

    ReplyDelete
  76. Oh my gosh! Israel looks so much like Derick!
    He is getting so big!

  83. Can you give us a run down on what the older Duggar boys do?
    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  84. The Duggar are fantastic . Siete forti. Kiss from Italy ♥

    ReplyDelete
  85. I am praying for this sweet baby boy because in every picture of him with his eyes open he just seems to have a blank stare as if something's not quite right. I pray he ok and I'm wrong. Israel looks like a little sweetie!

  86. He is so cute . Bacioni From Italy :)

    Hi Annette,

    That is just a rumor. There are very few websites that have factual information about the Duggars on a consistent basis. You can always count on our blog to stick to the facts. :)

    The episodes are available for purchase on Amazon US, iTunes, and Google Play.

    1. I tell as many people who will listen on other social media sites about this factual site, I do not believe one thing on those others and I wish everyone else would not either. That is how ugly rumors get started...Also people need to be patient and realize that there is a process and a legal way to do or say things not to mention loyalty and respect that Lily and Ellie have for the family.I'm sure they know lots more than we do, as it should be because of their relationship with them.I am grateful for whatever parcel of info we get.Like I said before...this is the only true safe site, child friendly and tasteful...So spread the word folks, we need more commentators/fans...blessings :-)Sincerely, Natalia
