New Photos of Henry and Spurgeon

Spurgeon Seewald and Henry Wilberforce Seewald

Henry Wilberforce Seewald is six weeks old! Born weighing 8 lbs 11 oz, the little guy had reached 12 lbs by the time he was just four weeks old. It's very clear from these photos that 16-month-old Spurgeon Seewald is enjoying his new role as an older brother.

  2. Is there anything wrong with Jessa's eyes? She always has her eyebrows raised like there maybe is an eyelash or something stuck inside.

    1. Maybe she's surprised to have her picture taken all the time? Or just someone who is constantly in shock?

    2. Jill does the same. Habit

    3. Maybe she didn't care for her photo to be taken. I've seen that expression before.

    4. All the girls do it, even Michelle sometimes. Guess they think it looks cute.

      Delete
    5. Maybe they're just tired Moms. I hold my eyes open like that if I'm tired and trying to stay awake.

      Delete
    6. LOL. That's not very nice. She's just trying to take a cute photo. Girls make faces like that. She's darling. Nothing is wrong with her eyes.

      Delete
    7. I think all the older girls do the same thing with their eyes in pictures.

      Delete
    8. She was surprised by a selfie?

      Delete
    9. That is the most random and weird question. There is nothing wrong with her.

      Delete
    10. You're not the only one who noticed those fake surprised picture eyes all the time. Not to be confused with the adoring gaze eyes when talking to a husband.

  3. What has happened to Jessa's lips? They didn't always look like that. Mine puff up like that if I eat something I'm allergic to, as a danger sign.

    1. I've been wondering, too. That looks like lips enhanced somehow. How do you make them that much larger?

      Delete
    2. Doubt it, the bottom lip goes with the expression in her eyes...See her cheekbones? That seriously look lol

      Delete
    3. Her lips are naturally full. I would hope she didn't enhance them. I've seen TV stars go over the top with lip enhancers.

      Delete
    4. I've been wondering that, too! I went back and looked at old pics and her lips seem a lot different now. Hmmm...

      Delete
    5. She could be filling them in with liner as many of the girls do nowadays. She has always had very plump lips but I agree they do look larger. I can't imagine she would get fillers. My guess is that she is experimenting with the overlined lip trend. She has beautiful features regardless.

      Delete
    6. Probably lip injections. If you look back at pictures of her a few years ago, her lips are totally different.

      Delete
    7. You all are mean, she has always had fuller lips. Would you like to post a picture of you and we can critique your mouth?

      Delete
    8. Your lips will get fuller with pregnancy.....she should soon loose
      -the baby fat.....😜 ❗️

      Delete
    9. Why would anyone inject stuff in their lips???

      Delete
    10. Jessa has always had full lips, nothing is different. If she smiles though, the fullness is less noticeable.

      Delete
    11. Nobody's being mean, just observant. There are some Duggar Defenders here who immediately take anything anyone else mentions to be meanness. Why is that?

      Delete
    12. I wish my lips were Fuller :)

      Delete
    13. Critiquing Jessa's looks? Yikes. Not very nice. Her lips and eyes (and everything else about her) is drop dead gorgeous. I think we're all in agreement with this. You should all remember that she may read these comments.

      Delete
    14. Full lips go hand in hand with pregnancy and they dont always go away after...mine git bigger after each child and stayed that way...ya see thats the thing folks ...biology its different with every person you cant compare...what happends with ones body doesn't mean it will be the same for the other.

      Delete
    15. It is pretty common for reality television cast members to enhance their lips.

      Delete
    16. Her lips look kinda the same too me. You would be able to tell if she had something done and those are natural - pregnancy has a lot to do with it.

      Delete
    17. How is simply wondering why her lips look bigger these days a "critique" or "being mean"? Sheesh.

      Delete
    18. This is why most of us will never put ourselves on TV. We don't want everything about us analyzed. They put themselves out there.

      Delete
  4. How cute is that looks like Henry is healthy and happy good job mamma

    1. I wonder if they do cut it, will it grow back curly or straight?

      Delete
    2. Jessa will cry when it happens. She was trimming it before.
      Those Einstein locks are cute.

      Delete
    3. Nope. He's a baby. Looks adorable. His hair is not long, and he's all boy.

      Delete
    4. One way to find out, Marilyn......

      Delete
    5. They will cut his hair when they see fit. It's not for us to say he needs one. It's their child.

      Delete
    6. I don't think it's up to us to say when he needs a hair cut. Spurgeon is their child, not ours.

      Delete
    7. It worked for Derick! I'm sure he cut his hair because everyone told him to.

      Delete
    8. My daughter looked like a very blonde Shirley Temple as a toodler. Beautiful curls like little bd springs with NO frizziness! Gorgeous! When she was about 3, I decided to give her bangs. What happened after I cut her bangs? Her bangs only were poker straight and the rest of her hair still looked like a head full of little blonde bed springs lol! She is grown up now, and her hair just has a bit of a natural wave to it. Betcha Spurgeons hair will go straight after his first real haircut. Oh, and yes, I did save one of my daughters curls.

      Delete
    9. Why would Jessa cry if Spurgeon got a haircut?

      Delete
    10. To Unknown 10:34...It's a mom thing. Once they get that first haircut they look like a little boy and not like a baby anymore. Obviously we know they're going to grow up but sometimes it's still an emotional moment.

      Delete
  6. Spurgeon gets cuter and cuter!

  7. Ironically, I think that in this first photo, anyway, Henry looks like Anna's father, Mike Kellar.
    Henry doesn't smile much, does he, unlike Spurge, who always seems to have a happy look about him.

    1. Henry is only 6 weeks old today. Smiles will be starting soon.

      Delete
    2. Uhh, Henry is a little young to smile much, if at all.

      Delete
    3. Why would he look like a Keller....they aren't related

      Delete
    4. Oh my gosh you're right! he does look like Anna's father! Now that I think about it.

  8. Love <3 beautiful children!!!!

    1. Spurg and Henry's age gaps aren't that bad. Spurg will be 2 in November.

      Delete
    2. She'll probably be pregnant again before TLC shows this birth on TV.

  11. Thank you for sharing!

  12. I love Spurgeon's long curly hair. Don't cut it yet. Both boys are just as cute and healthy looking as can be. Good job Mama and Dad.

    ReplyDelete
  13. beautiful baby boys. Spurgeon looks so happy!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Lips look like maybe --makeup magic .
    Lip liner , lighter color in the center..etc.
    & she does have full lips...πŸ‘„

  15. Heney looks just like a big Duggar baby as Spurge looks like a Seewald...one for each...so farπŸ˜‰

  16. My goodness, is Spurgeon ever cute!

  17. spurg is so adorable!πŸ’— hen is getting so big!! we will see some smiles from hen soon!!😊 can't wait to see more pics of them!!❤❤

    ReplyDelete
  18. Agree Henry is a little to young for smiles ,but why do they have always wrapped up in blanket babies only need slightly more clothing than adults.

    ReplyDelete
  19. SOOOO CUTE!! Both are just cutie pies - I really see Jill in Spurge now. I know that is strange but I see Auntie Jill in his little face. Jessa and Ben are so blessed by God with these two!

    1. I agree. But I also think that Jill and Ben's mother have similar features.

  20. Cute boys! Question? What is the name of the mixer that Jana was using to do the Christmas baking? I was looking for the picture, but it looks like they took it down. It looks pretty cool and easier to use than others.

    1. They were selling a mixer like that on Evine.com shopping channel,couple months ago...sold really well....
      Maybe they will get more soon πŸ‘πŸΌ

      Delete
    2. I remember seeing that. It might be an older Bosch countertop mixer, the kind made for mixing multiple loaves of bread dough. You need a good motor for that amount of strain. After owning a Bosch dishwasher that needed 2 repairs in its first few years, I'm not sold on that brand.

      Delete
  21. Such cute boys! As far as Jessa's lips...I also have full lips and they became much fuller during and after all 3 pregnancies. It happens to a lot of us.

    ReplyDelete
  22. they are so cute you are such good parents love to see you guys on TV never give up

    ReplyDelete
  23. Spurgeon must be thinking, "You got the better name but I clearly got the better looks."

    ReplyDelete

    1. Whoa -- harsh.

      Delete
    2. I don't think either won first prize in the naming department.

      Delete
    3. It just sounds like a little joke! These boys (babies) look healthy and spurge is photogenic with his smile! Sooo cute! I do have empathy for the uniqueness of spurge s name. It seems that the parents wanted to give him a name with meaning! Yet I can tell you that after having a unique name all of my life it does have it's challenges! It makes you have to constantly have to correct people with pronounciation (sp) and spelling! Regardless spurge is such a cute little boy!

      Delete
    4. Unique names, like my real first and last, also do not fit too well in all those little document boxes you have to fill out on on numerous forms all through life either. ;)

  24. I think it is sad that everything is filtered. It certainly gives the family the impression the new show is interesting. It is boring. People will eventually get tired of looking at more babies. Real jobs would be good. God intends for people to work if they have a desire to eat.

    1. It may be boring to you, but I don't find it boring at all. You do realize the show is only a few hours of their time per week, right? They film different families and make it into one episode. They have plenty of time to work besides the filming time. It would be pretty boring to see them working on houses or doing their other jobs every single week. The men all work and the women all work taking care of their families. The show also takes work. These are not people living off the government and sitting around all day.

  25. Two sweet boys! Beautiful family.

  26. Spurgeon and Henry are beautiful. Spurgeon seems to favor Jessa more than Henry does.
