Seewald and Dillard Snapshots

Last week, Jessa and Ben Seewald announced that they are expecting their second child in February 2017. Spurgeon will be just 15 months old when his little brother or sister arrives, which means that the Seewalds' life is soon to become even busier .

With the Dillards home from Central America for an extended visit, cousins Spurgeon Seewald and Israel Dillard, who are only seven months apart in age, are finally able to spend time together.

Jill and Derick have taken part in quite a few family get-togethers over the past three weeks. Israel has been away from relatives for most of his life, so you can bet that the little guy is enjoying the attention.

  1. You should rename this blog "All About Jill and Jessa," since those are the only two family members that are ever discussed any more. Jinger just got engaged. Why aren't we hearing more about that? How come you hardly ever post about Joy, Jana, John, and Josiah anymore? I miss hearing about Joy. She's my favorite.

    1. Actually there's been a lot about Jinger! I think right now Jill and Jessa just have a lot going on in their lives. After all, the show was originally called Jill and Jessa Counting On.

    2. Not true. Read the other posts!

    3. Well, that's what the show will be focusing on now. Just you wait. In a few weeks, people will be begging to know more about Jill and Jessa!
      But I agree with you. I also miss hearing about Joy.

    4. It must be hard for them as Jill and Jessa are the ones who have the show now but there will be more about Jinger soon. Don't take it out on this blog they can only pass on the information they know and are given and right now they're only given stuff about Jessa and Jill

  2. Why does Derrick not cut his hair ? When Jill first met him in Nepal he kept his hair cut. And what was the reason for his oral surgery a year ago ? He looks odd now like his face looks awkward.

    1. I work with people around Derrick's age, and the look he has going with the hair is very stylish. It's considered very attractive. This look is often popular among young Christians working with youth ministry or in missions, so to my eyes, he looks like many of his peers.

  6. Thanks for sharing.
    I'm sure the family is happy to have everyone close for now.
    I'm also sure you aren't able to share anything unless provided by the family or magazines.
    The other kid's are young adults now and busy teens. I doubt they stay put long enough to report anything.
    Thank you ladies for your efforts.

    1. @Annonymous 11:44. Since you are "shouting" and we understand you mean JOSH why not just say his name? However, there are plenty of us who do not want him included. It's not about unforgiveness or being a "hater". The level of deception he committed over the entire series--without anything more than a PR apology is still to new for many of us to want to hear any kind of "the devil took his best shot" kind of explanation. Let he and Anna and their children live quiet lives without the pressure of constant reality TV fame. I sincerely hope for the best for them. I don't see that happening if thrown back into the media microscope.

  10. We really love the family and the show. We hope it continues with new seasons. Looking forward to seeing Jinger's wedding and the birth of Jessa's 2nd baby. More of the Duggar's courtships!
