"Baby Dilly" Turns 8 Months Old

Can you believe it has already been eight months since Jill and Derick Dillard welcomed their first child? Israel, nicknamed "Baby Dilly" by his family, weighed a whopping 9 lbs 10 oz at birth and hasn't stopped growing since.

    1. Love all the baby updates, they change so quickly I hope Anna can enjoy her babies and wishing her lots of good luck for the future and hoping that a good wholesome companion comes into life to share the good times which I am sure will happen and so she can move on.

  4. He's adorable! Love the whole Duggar Family. A wholesome, all American family. We need to all strive to be as good as we can be, but understand we are all human and make mistakes. May God bless you all on this wonderful Christmas Season.

    1. Speaking as someone who was molested at the age of 15, 45 years ago and it is still haunting me I don't call it a mistake it is a crime. I can't bear to look at Josh so I fo one am glad he will not be on the new show.

    1. In a lot of cultures, children call their dads papa. That is not unusual

      Delete
    2. Derrick can be called whatever he wants as he is the father he can decide.

  15. I can't believe he's so big and grown up already! That's crazy! Also that we are still calling him Dilly. That's sort of hilarious. He's a big boy now!

  17. What a blessing! Time waits for no one he's growing up so fast. May God continue to bless him.

  18. Israel is a real cutie. He sure is smilely. It looks like he is wearing the same shirt in both pictures. Looks like Justin is there visiiting? They sure get to see family often for living so far away. How do they keep up with homeschooling? The average normal family couldn't afford time or money to travel like the Duggars do.

  19. The baby is so cute. Why does dad look so different though?

    1. Israel's last name is Dillard. When Jill was pregnant people referred to him as "baby Dilly" due to last name

  26. @Sharondoss1961 Papa is a form of endearment in the Spanish culture. I'm sure that is why he is called "Papa." Besides, what difference does it really make what he calls Father is...that is what matters.

  27. I've seen israels pictures and jills baby pictures and they look exactly the same it's so weird

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yes! We CAN believe he is 8 months old, since we are given consistent updates!

    ReplyDelete
  29. If I remember isn't the average age difference between the Duggar children 14 months?? So curious to know if Jill will take after her mama. But let her enjoy baby Dilly until then! :) my 2nd will be about 14 months younger than my firstborn.

  30. I'm not sure who Israel resembles because Jill and Derrick were "mathed-up" so well. Justin is turning into a handsome young man.

  31. Are they back in the states again?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Soooo so CUTE! Great pics!

  33. I think Papa is pronounced "Poppa", not "Pappaw". I think someone posted that Jim Bob should be called Papa. Pappaw would be for a grandfather, but Papa, or Poppa, for the father. What a cute baby. He looks just like Duggar babies.

  34. Looking forward to seeing Dilly

    and Quincy Jill and Jessa
    and getting to know both baby papas' better on the show

    ReplyDelete
  35. Ireally enjoyed the shows when Jill travelled to go see Derick and the accidental frontal hug, I loved it all

    ReplyDelete
  36. Can't get over the transformation in Derick's face. I didn't know orthodontia could change a face that much. He almost looks like a different person. Did he have surgery of any kind?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Papa means daddy to Israel. If Jill and Derrick want Izzy to call Derrick
    "Papa" then he should be called Papa. The other grandkids call Jim Bob "Grandpa", not Papa, so whatever they chose, it should be their choice. They are his parents.

  38. I am in love!! What a cute little baby!
