New Spring 2017 Header

Nothing says happy spring like a new blog header! We updated the photos of all the Duggar kids and grandchildren and added two new members of the family, Jessa and Ben's newborn son--Henry Wilberforce Seewald--and Joy-Anna Duggar's fiance--Austin Forsyth.

The header was created by our faithful web designer, Rachel. She is a busy wife and mama, and we are grateful to her for sharing her creativity with us. Rachel, also a friend of the Duggars, writes songs for the traveling band that her parents and siblings are in (The Wissmann Family).

  2. I just love this new picture of the family.... I was wondering went you were going to update.... I was also wondering which picture you were going to use for Joy & Austin because he is so much taller than her and to get them small enough to fit in this frame, great job... Love this....

    2. Whos tyler ?

      Delete
    3. um are not they adopting him. same difference he is theirs. unless it is a temporary situation. then I understand. he should be a total part of family and not excluded.

      Delete
    4. Even if they adopt him, he's not an actual Duggar. He should not be in the header.

      Delete
    5. How much or how little Tyler is seen or referred to on this blog is a family decision, not a fan decision. We should be happy for him to be in a good situation and pray for him, his mom and others in his life.

    6. 9:47 Even if they adopt him, he's not an actual Duggar? How insulting! Perhaps you should familiarize yourself with adoption laws. My adopted children are very much "actually my own".

      Delete
    7. Anonymous 5:19 - My favourite retort like yours is from a parent with both bio and adopted children. While playing at a park, someone asked which were the adopted kids and which were the 'real' ones, and the parent nonchalantly answered 'I forget' and went back to playing with the kids.'

  4. Great job Rachel!

    1. If you click, on the birthday tab, under the header, you can see all their ages there.

  6. I love the new header! I can tell such a difference in how much the younger children have grown and changed!

    ReplyDelete
  7. What about Tyler?

    ReplyDelete
  8. The little ones are growing so fast.The adult young women look so happy. Best to all.

  9. That's awesome!! Rachel did a great job! Thanks for posting older pics of the Duggar kids too! I love the ? Next to Israel's pic. Can't wait to find out baby boy Dillard #2 name.

  10. I wish Grandma could have a name.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well you wouldn't know it by looking up there. She's always been simply "Grandma," which is a shame.

      Delete
    2. You can google it up and I've known it for while..

      Delete
    3. Why? Maybe that's what she wants to be called.

      Delete
    4. This is her actually name! Mary! Google it up!!!

      Delete
    5. I agree, her name is Mary. Jim bob and Michelle are not listed as Father and Mother. ,she should be afforded the same dignity.

      Delete
    6. Thank you for agreeing with me!

      Delete
    7. It could say "Grandma Mary." She is a sweet lady from what I've seen of her on the "19Kids" show. :)

      Delete
    8. The first time we met Jim Bob's mother, she introduced herself as "Grandma," so that's how we refer to her in the header. :)

      Lily and Ellie

  11. Love the new header and new pictures, but unfortunately it is already out-of-date! Just saw that People says Joseph is now courting Kendra Caldwell. Things are changing fast.

    1. Yep, very exciting! We don't usually add couples to the header until they are engaged. :)

      Lily and Ellie

      Delete
    2. You may have to bend your rule because they've been "promised." Whole new category.

      Delete
    3. think about this: can you imagine what the header will look like in 10 years from now?!?! good possibility all 19 children will be married then and most will have children!!! how cool will that be!?!? i'll still be following your blogs then too!

      Delete
  12. I didn't know Jill and Derek were having another boy!

    1. Yeah, it's really exciting!! He's due in July sometime. :)

  13. looks great! I love and respect your family so much!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Rachel, thank you so much for the new header!! It looks awesome!! I can't believe how big ALL the Duggars are getting. I remember when some of those kids were born. And now look at them. WOW!! Love the new pics of Israel and Spurgeon. Thank you! Tara, Chandler, Arizona

  15. It looks amazing, I love it! Everybody's pictures look fantastic! But I have a request, can you post an article where you have this new header and every other header from the time you started this blog so we can compare how much the family has changed. You don't have to but I thought it be cool to see.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's a great idea! I was actually just thinking about doing a post like that this morning. Stay tuned. :)

      Ellie

      Delete
    2. Ellie, that would be fantastic! Wouldn't it be fun to compare then to now? I love your blog!

      Delete
    3. I like that idea too about about putting up the older headers and compare them to the new one.

      Delete
    4. Good idea but just one little request......can you make the current pictures a bit bigger please.

      Delete
    5. The pictures look fine the are not to small. You might need glasses.

      Delete
  16. You're probably going to have to add Kendra now.

    To those who didn't believe Joe was courting, here's a nice sweet "told you so." The blonde in the Valentine's Day picture.

    Replies
    1. At the time they weren't :-) Now they are. Told you so's are never nice and sweet.

      Delete
    2. She said above see will wait tell joe is engaged before putting kendra on here.

      Delete
    3. How do you know they weren't courting then? You know how there's always a delay in these announcements.

      Delete
    4. @3:59PM, but they sure can be fun.

      Delete
    5. You know, 2:15, that blonde you refer to could be Kendra's sister Lauren who is rumored to be courting one of the twins, Jed or Her. Also, Lauren is a blonde like her mom and Kendra is a brunette like her dad.

      Delete
    6. Kendra is not brunette. Other pictures show this more clearly. And it's been Kendra beside Joe for the last 5 months or more.

      Delete
  17. Thanks. I'm so glad you 2 take so much of your time to kept us fans updated
    God Bless

  18. Yay, love the Picture Header! Everyone looks great and I so love to see all the new additions! Congratulations Joy anna, Austin seems like a great guy and thanks for your testimony for the world to see your purity courting promise. And congratulations to Joseph as well! I just did my daily morning check and my phone was left on and it updated or status courting Kendra! Besides getting to know more about Austin I'm so excited to see Kendra's heart Intel it's that the Lord has blessed her with! God bless everybody! Can't wait for Jill to be blessed with her new life in the Lord, you're all in my prayers!

  19. Photos are way to small to see clearly. Maybe need to add a 4th line of photos so they can each be a bit larger?--(esp. with so many new faces being added from now on with weddings & births...)...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I can see them just fine. Maybe you need a bigger screen?

      Delete
    2. I agree, the pictures, especially Jinger and Jeremy's, is a bit on the small side!!!

      Delete
    3. As the banner expands photos will become smaller.
      There's only so much room dedicated on the page for the banner vs text.
      The ladies would need to pay for a large format which is unfair to expect since they do this from their hearts.
      Thank you Rachel for all your efforts. The banner looks great.

  20. I love the new header except for the background - it's too dark!

    ReplyDelete
  21. There were no other choices for Merdith or Jackson?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree poor Jackson,someone must have a nicer looking picture of him!. And can you put a nicer one of little Jordan. I know there must be cuter pics of her!

      Delete
    2. What's wrong with Jackson? I really like the new header but the only picture I think need to be changed is the one on Josiah, and maybe Meredith.

      Delete
  22. The only one that is tough for me to really see is Jinger and Jeremys photo,its too small. But thank you Rachel Lily and Ellie for the updates!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Nice header, but I agree that it's getting a bit small to see since all the in laws and grandchildren are being added. Perhaps a bit larger would be good....and Jackson needs a new photo, this one is awful of him.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Looks great! Thanks for the updated pictures! Thanks for doing this blog. So many of us really appreciate it!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Kudos to the person who designed this. Unfortunately, you are gonna be going through a lot more changes as Jinger and Jeremy have kids, Joy has kids, and now Joseph, probably. I'm sure you're gonna have to add a whole other row to keep everything aligned. All within the year, I bet. Good luck to you.

    1. I think Jinger and Joy might actually wait awhile.

  28. I met Rachel Wissmann when she and her family came to sing and share their testimony at a Mennonite church in Berlin, OH about 9(?) years ago. She has a beautiful voice. Highly recommend their CD's! ~Terese Zelones, Fresno, OH

  29. thank you for keeping all of the fans up on Duggar news and photos!! The little kids are growing up so fast! I hardly recognized them since TLC does not allow them or the parents to have any real part on the new show. If not for you guys we fans would really be out of the loop - thanks and God Bless!

    1. Betty sometime you will see the little kids on the show. My counting on its about the older kids not the younger ones.
      Most of the younger kids don't want to be on tv anymore.

  30. I wish we got to see more of that forgotten bottom row.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Now all you impatient folks can relax...there there the header is done and still there are complaints, cant y'all just be happy that we even have this wonderful blog instead of nitpicking it apart.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Agreed
      This blog has a cost annually we don't contribute too. The header only provides so much room to work with. Reader's should be thankful for the effort made for them. I just don't believe they understand the limitations being worked around.
      Hugs ladies Great Job!

  32. nice job on the header rachel, lilly & ellie! out of all the new pictures, i think jennifer is the one who has changed the most of the younger duggar children! thanks so much for the update

    ReplyDelete
  33. The pictures are great. How about when you feel tempted to nitpick, say a prayer for the family, instead?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Maybe there is a perfectly good reason for Tyler not being up there. They might be respecting the wishes of their family. We don't know. So let's not make a big deal please.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Johannah and Jennifer are looking so grown up. Wish we got to hear about those 2 more.

  36. What about Josh I have been praying for him
