A Duggar-Sized Baby Shower

 Jessa (Duggar) Seewald and Ben Seewald

Baby Seewald is due on Sunday, November 1st. That's just a few days away! Jessa and Ben celebrated the upcoming arrival of their firstborn child with a baby shower, held at a family-friend's barn and attended by approximately 100 guests. (For those wondering how Jill and Derick were able to make it, the shower was held before they returned to Central America.)

Check out these snapshots, courtesy of TLC, of the fall-themed event:

  3. I'm glad Josh came with Anna, Mackynzie, Mike, Mark, and Meredith. I'm glad he'll appear in the new Duggar reality show. He's a part of the family and TLC. I love him no matter what. He's a sincere person. He isn't a hypocrite. We all make mistakes. Trust God. Jesus first. Others second. Yourself third. I can"t wait for Meredith's birth to be shown on television.

    1. I think you are confused. Josh was not there; he's still in rehab. And there is pretty much zero chance he will have any part in the new specials.

    2. You must be confused. I don't think Josh was there. It's been stated that he won't be seen in the specials.

  9. If she is this close to her due date and hasn't delivered, I'm guessing Quincy is a boy. :)

  39. Miss Jana so much. She is wearing a beautiful outfit. Love you Jana!

  40. Thanks for sharing your shower and the awesome pictures. Is Jill expecting again? That would be wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  41. What's going on with Jana, Jinger and Joy-Anna these days? Are they training up for a profession of some sort? Is Jana continuing her training as a doula / midwife? Are they pursuing further education? Would be interesting to hear about the other boys or any news beyond Jill and Jessa. Nevertheless, thank you for keeping up the blog and doing all the work that goes into it.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I don't mean to be rude, but has anybody else been wondering whether Jill is pregnant again?

    ReplyDelete
  43. What barn is that? if the people that own the barn have a website, what it is?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Definitely a girl!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. What a precious time in your life Jessa. You have a wonderful family.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Modesty sure flew out the window when these girls became pregnant. Michelle and Anna never wore streached out tops, they dressed in maternity outfits that were cute, and modest. Jill and Jessa both wear tight fitting clothes even when they are not very far along, just suprised JimBob and Michelle approve.

    ReplyDelete
  47. So exciting!!
    God's Blessings for an easy delivery & healthy baby!!!!

  48. So nice to see these pics of an upbeat event!

  51. Miss seeing you all every week. So glad you shared pictures from the baby shower. Praying all goes well for Jessa and baby.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love jessa's floral shirt ... Anyone know where she got it??

    ReplyDelete
  53. Beautiful family time prayers for a safe blessed birth

    ReplyDelete
  54. Miss looking in on your lovely family.......

    ReplyDelete
  55. I hope Jessa has her baby soon, and it is not overdue. I don't think she wants to have the same experience as Jill.

    ReplyDelete
  56. How precious! Thanks for sharing these awesome pics. I'm so blessed by all the smiling faces. I can feel the love (-:

    ReplyDelete
  57. Believe she will have baby Nov 3rd . Anxious to see the happy couple on tv.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Please add Josh in the new series. He learned his lesson.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I understand everyone's eagerness to know if Jill's pregnant or not, but I'd caution people about openly commenting on it (even though I'm sure they mean well.) For one thing, if she wanted people to know she would have announced it. Secondly, if someone ISN'T pregnant, it would hurt their feelings to be told they look like they are. Just a thought.

    ReplyDelete
  60. So happy to see pictures of the shower wish to see more because can't wait for the new show. Hope it plays every week forever. Hope to see the rest of the family too. God bless y'all.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Can you imagine being a friend of the Duggar family -- what you would spend on baby shower gifts?

    ReplyDelete
  62. Jessa's t-shirt looks like it's been painted on. Is there a different modesty standard during pregnancy for these girls? I've noticed it with her, with Jill, and with Whitney Bates, as well. Honest question.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Beautiful family praying for y'all .Always put God first.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Wish I was invited! Looks like an awesome event!
