Joy & Carlin Visit the Dillards

Check out these adorable photos of Joy Duggar and Carlin Bates' two-week stay with Jill and Derick Dillard in Central America. (Click here for a written update.)

Before you go any further, take a minute to soak in the cuteness of this first picture. Can you believe Israel will turn five months old on Sunday?

The adorable Israel Dillard

 Jill, Carlin, and Joy enjoy some girl time (with Israel)

 Shopping for food in Central America is a new experience for the Dillards

 Let the teething begin!

 The many faces of Israel

 Time with Daddy!

 Carlin, who has 10 younger siblings, is a natural when it comes to taking care of kids.

 Another snapshot of Israel

 Joy and Jill have always been close friends.

 Looks like Israel is ready for breakfast!

Eatin' his toes

 Won't be long before this little guy starts walking.

 The Dillards head out for a walk with Carlin and Joy

 Carlin and Joy-Anna bond with Israel



 Little Caesars pizza anyone?

Israel sure loves those toes!

 Carlin, Joy, and Israel

 Which Duggar(s) do you think Israel resembles in this picture?

  4. These pictures are so adorable!
    Lily and Ellie, can you please see if Erin Paine will show a tutorial of how she pulls her hair back like she normally wares?
    Thank you so much!

  5. Many of us want a financial accountability statement from the Dillards showing us where the money we give is going. I'm not paying for you two to fly to weddings!

    1. I believe TLC flew them to NY for business and they were able to attend the wedding and visit with family while they were here.

    2. Oh, please. If you don't trust them then don't give them money. They do not owe the public their private information. No one is forcing you to donate.

      Delete
    3. Once you give them money, it's their choice how to use it. Don't like it, don't give. If you have so little faith in them to use your money correctly, why are you even giving in the first place?

      Delete
    4. Then don't send money! It's as simple as that.

    5. Who said you were? Really they can't have a little happiness in their lives without someone finding something to complain about?

  6. I think Israel favors his Uncle James a little. He is starting to have his own look and favor his Dad some. He is one happy baby.

  20. I love the photos of Israel. He is so cute. He resembles Jill a great deal, who resembles Jim Bob.

  21. I saw the clip where the Duggar family were saying flood bye to Jill. It broke my heart seeing Joy anna so upset. Am glad to see that Jill had taken Joy with her on a vacation. I really think Jill was a mother to her and to Jennifer. Hope Jennifer too will one day be able to take a plane flight with Jill and stay for awhile. James seems to be holding up well.

  22. Israel looks like his grandpa Jim Bob!
    Thanks for this photos. Nice to see baby Israel. Love you Israel!!!

  23. I just love the Bates family. I am so glad to see Carlin Bates having the opportunity to travel and be able to see what the missionary field is all about....with Jill and Joy Duggar. Love ya Carlin !

    ReplyDelete
  24. I hope one day Jill and Derrick have another son and name him after Derricks father. Would love to see the name Daniel Dillard carried on. I think Miss Cathy would be deeply moved. I know I would. Don't get me wrong, I do like Israel's name. It's a cute name.

    1. Derick's father's name was Rick

  25. I am happy to see the Duggar sisters so happy and that their lives have moved on. I don't think you will be coming back on tv. But I do like your blogs. Wish you well with the missionary work ! I hope you bring many to Christ !

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love Jill. I hope her missionary work prospers. They seem very happy. Would love to learn she is expecting another baby soon. Will keep checking the blog.

    ReplyDelete
  27. It's sad their show is over. Love this blog though. Thanks. Hope we hear more about them and their work.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Will Jill be a midwife overs there? What is Derrick's plans?

    ReplyDelete
  29. It looks like everyone thinks Isreal resembles the Duggars !!!!!! So cute !

    ReplyDelete
  30. Jill stayed faithful to her parents teachings. She continues to wear modest clothes.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Aren't the Dillards lucky in a way? It's cheaper over there. And do they get free housing? Meals? Airfare? I know they received a great deal for their wedding. I wonder how much the family made through the years with their show. Michelle and Jim Bob gave her quite a bit. I read they were paid at least $25,000 per episode. That really must have added up. Wow !!! But I do love you Jill !

    ReplyDelete
  32. Will you be giving us a run down on what the other Duggar children are up to ? This is the Duggar Blog.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Why does Derrick always look so tired ? He never looks well rested.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I didn't know Carlin and Joy were the same age. Carlin always appeared older. I was very surprised but happy. The girls really get along quite well. It appears as if Joy and Carlin were babysitters for Israel. Were they ?!! Why ? Did they have to do cooking and laundry too? Just kidding.

    ReplyDelete
  35. How long was the plane flight back ?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love seeing pictures! I miss the show so much! I wish they could find a way to air another show on ànother channel. Israel seems to be looking like his dad lately. Such a happy baby. I worry about Jill and Derrick. They look so thin. Will be nice to have them back home.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I also think the baby looks like Jackson!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Looks like they are colombia And yes israel looks like josiah

    ReplyDelete
  39. He looks like Jackson I think. Very cute. I am happy to see that you continue to post updates despite the issues of late. I have been heartbroken for your family and think of you daily. It makes me feel better to see smiling faces. Our family sends love to yours. - <3 Jen

  40. Personally, Baby Dilly looks a little like Joseph as well as Jackson.
    I hope Joy and Carlin had a great time in Central America.
    Cheers all the way from Ecuador!

    ReplyDelete
  41. So what exactly are they doing to minister over there?

    ReplyDelete
  42. They are at language school in ANTIGUA, Guatemala! I was so surprised to see familiar sights. Antigua has some of the best Spanish schools around. That's pretty cool. They must plan on being there a long time if thwy are making that kind of investment

    ReplyDelete
  43. my first though was that young Israel looks like his uncle James. Glad to also see that Joy is able to spend some time with her big sister & buddy Jill away from all the goings on in the media. I am glad she took her very best friend Carlin with her. I hope being that both Joy & Carlin are now 17yrs old - and hopefully finished or near finished school ( I don't remember if that event was ever posted - too much has happened lately ! ) so that they can stay with Derick, Jill & little Israel for a long while. Ps. I nearly forgot and almost called Israel little Dilly.( his parents nick name for him before he was born )

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love the pictures! Little Israel is so cute and getting so big! Thank you for sharing all the pictures! I love your family and I love the Bates family too! Take care! <3

  48. I really enjoyed the pictures of baby Israel. He is an adorable little boy and so lucky to be part of a family who love him so much. I do agree that Derick looks tired. Hope he is well. Jill looks great! Thank you for sharing thee wonderful pictures with everyone and family news.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Wow he is a cute little guy and really big and strong for his age, they hardly stay little babes for long do they. The very top pic I can really see a strong resemblance to James then the next few look like Josiah and some of the ones at the bottom do too and one looks like Justin. Thanks for posting pics. I was wondering how he was getting on. I know its hard on Anna right now or Id love to see some of Meredith too. We miss seeing all the baby updates now. Thanks for posting

    ReplyDelete
  55. I think little Israel looks like Joe but he probably resembles most of his uncles including Dan, Derick's brother. Thank you for sharing these precious photos of your family. Continue praying for your entire family. Jill and Derick you have a precious little boy love seeing how he is growing and changing. He is just too cute.

  56. Please turn the baby around in that baby wear or he might get hip dysplasia.

    1. How could he get hip dysphasia

  57. I say in some pictures baby Israel looks like a Duggard and in others he looks like a Dillard. In time I think he will more and more resemble the Dillard guys.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Yes! Wholesomeness, happiness, the peace of Christ!

  60. In that particular photo I think Israel looks like Jim Bob! But I don't see it in the other photos. Thank you for posting these. I miss all of you so much!

  61. Grandma Duggar's quote "show me your friends and I'll show you your future" has certainly proven true.

    It appears the Dillards have a bright, fun, God-loving future. We love you "Jillards".

    Josh's future? well, not so much.

    Grandma Duggar, you are a very wise woman.

    ReplyDelete
  62. He's so cute!
    When do Jill and Derick come back? Miss you!

  63. Israel is adorable! I pray for all of you, and want you know what an inspiration your family has been. Even though times can be difficult for all of us as we take this journey through life, God is with us every step of the way. He has a plan for us all. Peace to you and your family.

  64. Israel is such a little cutie! Jill & Derick seem so happy and it's great to see Joy Anna & Carlin with them. I love seeing the photos of everyone. Thanks Dillards for the way you serve the Lord! Blessings to you!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I know where the Duggars are! I have visited that country so some of those landmarks are quite familiar. I won't tell though :)
    Praying for their safety and that they bring the Word of God to the people!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Giving to someone to bless them isn't about what is done with the money or item. It is about glorifying God and spreading His love. Our job isn't to ensure the money or item we gave was used according to our will. It is God's will that we want. By asking for proof of any sort you are missing the entire point of blessing someone in the name of the Lord. The point isn't the money or the item but the reason for the gift and what God can do with the gift for the people involved. He is limitless.

  67. Isreal still looks like jim bob.

  68. Is your family taking up donations to get 19 Kids and Counting back on air? You should consider a paid network like HBO or try to ask PBS.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Jill looks like she is expecting. Derrick doesn't look well rested. Hope everything is ok.

  70. Hi Jill,

    I have no idea if you are Reading the comments but I have to tell you something;
    I love the fact you are babywearing and I See you both enjoy it.
    Go and try an ergonomic babycarrier, such as Tula, Manduca, ergobaby, Ruckeli, Rose&rebellion, mei tai, lennylamb or a babywearing wrap. You'll enjoy it even more and are able to use it a lot longer. ;)
    If you would like to know more, please contact me info@draagkindenco.nl

    Thank you for keeping us updated about you family!
    What a lovely little boy you have! ♡

  71. Jill's baby looks like her,and she looks more like her Dad,Jim Bob.

  72. I'm so happy for your family Jill. Joy an Carlin are so cute. I think its so nice that they were there with you. Israel is going to miss the girls giving him so much attention.

    ReplyDelete
  73. What is Jill's due date with her 2nd?

    ReplyDelete
  74. Did you donate to their mission fund?

    ReplyDelete
  75. I think people need to stop commenting on Jill's baby wearing. While a Bjorn is not the best carrier it has been shown not to cause Dysplasia. Yes, some other carriers offer a more comfortable position for mom and baby, but she's the mom and she likes this carrier! http://www.babygearlab.com/a/11099/Best-Practice-Tips-for-Baby-Wearing

    ReplyDelete
  76. The Duggars can always create a YouTube channel and self-produce a show to stay in touch with their fans. They've talked on the show about how some of the boys have learned film and sound from their crew, and I believe they even had a media setup at their home.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I think Isreal looks Alot like Josiah

    ReplyDelete
  78. Is Jill pregneat again? If so congrats! I notice in the pick of her back to us with the carrier that she looks like she is, or maybe she is just having problems loosing the weight as baby Dillard did take a lot out of her. Haven't heard any news and she seems to only be giving us upper shots on the rest of them..

    ReplyDelete
  79. I just love seeing all of the pictures. I love your family. I miss watching your show. I hope that Josh gets all the help he needs. I wish Anna and all of her kids well. Love you all.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Beautiful Family! :-) Derrick how is your mom doing? She is an extraordinary & brave women. Pray that all is well. Hey! Great idea! Why don't you Jill, Jenna & Ben have your own show on TLC? A spin-off of 19 Kids. Great idea don't you think?! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  81. @Anonymous Now that's something I'd like to see happen in the near future.
