Israel Dillard Almost 10 Months


As Israel Dillard approaches his 10-month birthday, let's see how much he's grown. Check out these adorable pictures of Jill and Derick Dillard's son, taken while sporting his Oklahoma State University monthly milestone stickers. (Derick earned his bachelor's in accounting at OSU, where he followed in his late father's footsteps as the school mascot, Pistol Pete.)

Don't you just love Israel's contagious smiles? Do you think he looks more like a Duggar or a Dillard?

    6. I agree with you Amber Israel has from birth looked big! He does look like a 2 yr old in the very last picture. What I think is so awesome is that he has such a huge smile in every picture I see of him. Derrick and Jill must be perfect parents and first time at that! When I see them with Israel you can see the love on their faces for their adorable chunky baby! I think that Israel looks like a combination of Derrick and Jill, way to go Derrick and Jill for being such great first time parents!

    1. Is Duggard a combination of Dillard and Duggar, meaning he looks like both of them?

  7. Israel doesn't turn 10 months old until February 6, that's almost 2 weeks from today. Why mention this now?

    1. You're absolutely right because a brand new Daddy always wants people to say a son looks just like him..so I'm sure Derrick would say thank you also to such a sweet comment.

  9. Why do they still have him lying down like a newborn for these pictures?

    1. Many people take monthly pictures of their infants in the same pose each month to highlight how much they are growing.

  10. He's really thinning out. Almost looks underweight for a 9 month old. Hope he's getting enough to eat.

    1. He looks healthy to me!Jill and Derick are great parents!Im sure of it!People can be so negetive!!!!!!!

    2. Have you ever seen his dad? Chances are he is going to be tall and usually that means being thin. He looks great!!

      Delete
    3. I hope he's healthy.

    4. I agree with you Jill Israel has always looked very healthy and very chubby in each picture..lol. Which means that yes he has awesome parents lovingly, prayerfully, looking after their precious little baby in every aspect of his life! He is just so cute! I can definitely relate to you when you talk about negativity it runs rampant with these wonderful,Godly, families such as Duggars, Dillards, and the Seewalds. It's a shame but just overlook it we know how great of families they are!

  12. I actually LOVE the picture they have on the cover of this post of him, he is so cute in it. Looks like he just got out of tub with 1/2 wet and wild hair and so happy.

  16. He is soooo big!!! Cant believe he is almost one!!!!!

  17. Is he OK? He has a badly swollen eyebrow & under-eye area in a recent picture she posted, and what looks like a horrible red-purple bruise on one arm, worse than a toddler could get taking a normal little toddler tumble. Do you know if he's OK? That eye hasn't been right in a few pictures she posted recently.

    1. He is 10 months and learning to walk. I am sure he is fine.

    2. I'm worried about it too! We don't know what happens behind closed doors.

      Delete
    3. I don't think you are looking at pictures that either Derrick or Jill posted of Israel, or you probably are confusing him with someone else. Because I have seen every picture of this precious baby,in one he did have a small mark under his eye and it was a little puffy. But that is normal my son took a spill at about the same age and his little eye looked really bad. But that's what happens when they know no fear and feel they can do anything at a fast pace...lol. Like I said I have seen all his pictures because I can't get enough of his cuteness and big smile and I have never ever seen a bruise on him anywhere and no picture of his eye again either. I don't think you need to worry he definitely looks healthy in each and every picture above, a Doctors dream patient and he has the best parents and a loving God watching over all three of them. God Bless

  19. He sure is getting big Jill and Derick Dillard! I think he looks more like a Dillard, but in the first picture he kind of looks like a Duggar too!

  20. Is the child ever allowed off the blanket?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Maybe they just put him there to take pictures.

      Delete
    2. Obviously these are posed pictures. I'm sure the blanket is there as a backdrop or placed on the floor to give him a clean surface to play on.

      Delete
    3. Blanket?? What do you mean, "off the blanket? Haven't you seen them take his monthly picture before? It's not just one blanket in fact it is their bed every time except for the shaggy rug, you can see the bed pillows and blankets in the pictures. All I know is he looks cute and smiling big in each picture which is almost impossible to get a smile in each one.

  21. He is a perfect combination of both Derick and Jill!!!!! PLUS he is a cutie in his own right!!! Dad is tall----who cares about his growth chart as long as he is healthy and oviously extreemly Happy!!!! remember Aunt Josie was thelittlest!!! So he has all those Duggar and Dillards traits xxxxoooo,Dillard Family Parner Nancy Lowe

  24. Israel is a nice looking boy, and I think he looks like Israel. It's ashame Derik earned his bachelor's in accounting, but not putting it to good use. Sounds like years in college was a waste of time.

  33. It seems like a long time ago they had that poor little baby sitting in a little booster seat at a football game, he looked like a tiny adult watching a live football game. If he is ten months now how old was he then? I don't think Jill and Derick always know how to treat their baby.

    1. By the looks of how happy Israel is in these pictures, I would say that Derrick and Jill know exactly how to raise their cute little baby. Keep up the good work you are doing for God, you all are always in my prayers! God Bless

    2. People need to remember that thee is not one right way to care for a child. Jill and Derrick may not be doing things the way some readers have done them, but that doesn't make what they are doing wrong. Israel seems very happy and healthy in these pictures so I think the criticism and over analyzing every little thing should stop.

  45. Is he pulling himself up, "walking" with help, feeding himself? They always hold him like a tiny baby. How many teeth does he have? Would like to hear about his personality, his likes and dislikes, their routine as a family.

  55. I cannot believe the nerve of the crazy people that are bashing them for a bruise on him it's just insane!He is at the age where they begin to start trying to stand and fall into everything while teething.Jill and Derick are such good hearted people they would never hurt their son!it infuriates me!I bet they don't even sell plug covers where they are at.Its absolutely ridiculous!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't think anyone was claiming that Jill & Derick did anything to their son. There are quite a few medical conditions that can cause unexpected bruising and easy bruising in children. If the eye area is swollen at the same time, that's another clue that something might be wrong medically. Go back and read that post - abuse is not mentioned at all.

    2. It was on the news tonight that someone in Arkansas has tested positive for the Zika virus. It's someone who had been out of the country recently. The disease can cause red, itchy eyes and a rash.

    3. I believe that she is talking about a comment that is not even on here which I saw too, which I was upset with too. It mentioned that they probably lost their cool with Israel and did that to him, and they said the ridiculous stuff about the plug in. But one lady commented and said that they were just like her safety outlets at home were nothing can go inside until you slide it and it's very hard for even an adult to do. Oh, and the person who commented about his eye also said she was turning them into CPS so yes I can see why that's upsetting because Derrick and Jill are two of the most loving parents!

  65. I'd love to see this blog or Jill and Derick address the Zika crisis and what that means for their family and those they minister to. El Salvador has asked women to postpone pregnancy due to the high risk for birth defects associated with the virus.

    1. I doubt it affects their beliefs or lifestyle at all. Everything is about god's will or design. If he doesn't want a baby to get sick, it won't get sick and it will be god's blessing. If the baby does get sick, it is a trial god has imparted for a reason. We aren't meant to meddle with god's design for our life, unless it is to perm/curl our hair, wear makeup, get braces, or call 911 in an emergency.

      Delete
    2. Respect your views but don't agree whatsoever. God does not make babies sick. It is just the nature of things in our world. God is pained and sad and walks with us through our illness, whatever the outcome.

  70. wow! looks so much like Baby Spurgeon Seewald in the very first picture! you can tell they're cousins! he's a good combination of both Jill & Derick, though! can't believe that he's that old already! you all are great role models for me and many others, although they don't always admit it! there are really mean comments out there, but don't you dare listen to a single one of them! people are just really cruel with their words! they're just trying to put you down even though there really isn't much else they would do if they were in your situation! just trust that God will pull you through this and we all know he will! just take one day at a time! You couldn't handle a situation like this any better! you are doing great; God will lead you through! I pray for you every day, and so do many others! May God continue to bless you!

    P.S For those of you who are willing, I encourage you to watch "Megan Kelly interviews Sisters Jill & Jessa Duggar Girls" [full interview] on YouTube. In this 28 minute video, Jill & Jessa speak up as victims with the Josh Duggar issue and share their part of the story to show people the real story. Please watch it! It has encouraged me to pray for them and will touch your heart as they share how they feel as victims. Thanks for your time!

  73. I'd like to encourage my fellow Duggar/Dillard fans to speak good and uplifting words over Israel. Speaking curses (he's too thin, he's bruised, he doesn't look well) is not helping. Pray for the things you think you see. Pray for his parents if you don't think they're doing a good job. Pray if you truly care about these people and are not just pointing fingers and making them look bad. There's so many of us who truly care that I hope it outweighs the ones who don't.

    1. No one should ever keep keep quiet and not speak up with concerns when any child's welfare is involved. Silence solves nothing. Children can't speak for themselves.

    1. Babies come in all shapes and sizes. Some are extremely chubby and others are thinner, just like adults. His mom & dad are thin, so he probably will tend to be thin. Babies also tend to thin out as they get more active. At ten months he is probably getting plenty of exercise crawling and getting into everything!
