Jim Bob and Mason

Mason Duggar, who made his grand debut on September 12th, is about to turn four months old. In the photo below, the fifth-born spends some time chilling with Grandpa Duggar. Mason won't be the youngest Duggar grandchild for long--three more Duggar babies are due to arrive by the end of the summer!

    7. It's ok 9:39, I don't think anyone was trying to be mean, it was just funny since Mason seems like a really mellow baby and not like he's laughing or anything. He just seems really content.

    8. So people find the original comment funny and suddenly they are Duggar haters? I think people can still like the Duggars while finding this comment a bit funny. Mason doesn’t look like he is “having fun with Grandpa Duggar”. He is sitting on a lap. That’s what babies do.

    3. Really?!! All you notice in a photo of a handsome little boy with his grandfather is that there is a toilet off the living room. I would think with the number of family members that would be an ideal spot for a powder room.

    5. Many people, designers and builders. The goal behind architecture is not always and exclusively aesthetics. Sometimes it is simply function. Things have to fit, and they have to be usable space. That is what worked there. So sorry it offends you though! Maybe you haven't been in many different types of homes?

    6. I would think that with a family that big there is a toilet in every nook available!

    11. Someone with that many little kids is who designs a house with a toilet that is visible from the living space.

    12. With their open floor plan, a lot of things are visible from the living space. Since they spend a fair amount of time in that open space, I think it's a great idea to have a bathroom right there (especially for back in the day when they had a lot of smaller children all at one time, which is when they started building the house).

    13. Who is this determined to find something to criticize?

      Delete
    14. Why is that such a big deal? We all use a toilet

    18. As big as the house is and all the family members it’s only a downstairs bath and the door happens to be open at least it is not a toilet with no door .i have a downstairs bath in my house if the door was open u could see my toilet as well ..they are a family just like the rest of us who needs bedrooms and bathrooms as we all do !

    27. 9:58 AM, I actually think that's a good question. Thinking about the houses of my friends and family, I can't think of any bathroom with a toilet visible from the living space. I'm sure they did this for function, but it seems to be an unusual move, based on aesthetics.

      Delete
    28. Toiletgate ha ha This blog needs more humor, not less!

      And no I wouldn't want a toilet visible from my living room either. You couldn't even have a guest go in there without everyone knowing what was going on or hearing it.

  4. Thanks for posting a Mason picture! Who does everyone think he resembles?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Mason. He looks like himself. I find this question horribly offensive. As an mother of children I did not birth I absolutely hate it. All the tail wagging of “who do they look like”? THEMSELVES!!

      Delete
    2. Good grief, take a chill pill. If that offends you I can only imagine how much fun you are..

      I think Mason is a good mix of the two.

      Delete
    3. 3:16 sorry you are offended at an innocent question. I am sure you are a very good mother. Children do tend to favor biological kin, but it doesn't take anything away from you at all.

      Delete
    4. 7:14- I'm sure you meant no offense at all. However, as an adoptive mom myself, I would caution people to refrain from emphasizing family resemblances around anyone you know is adopted, especially younger kids. It can lead to feelilngs of being left out or not belonging when so much is made of who looks like who.

      Delete
    5. He looks a lot like McKenzie did when she was a baby. He's really cute!

      Delete
    6. Anon 3:16, I’m terribly sorry you were offended. I honestly feel that OP had no intentions of offending or upsetting anyone. Since you didn’t birth your children, I could see how that comment could be offensive if a stranger in public walked up to you and said something about your children looking or not looking like you. However, we ALL know that Mason is their biological child and he resembles his parents and grandparents. I think the OP’s comment/question was a fair one and had no intentions of upsetting or hurting you or anyone else. I apologize on the OP’s behalf for offending you or anyone else. I hope you have a great 2018 and keep loving your beautiful babies. I know that you are a great mommy!!!

      Delete
    7. Since the child is not actually adopted, and it's highly likely that other people besides me have an opinion on whether he resembles one relative or another, I stand by my original comment. So far we have McKynzie and Josh. Any others?

      Delete
    8. 3:16 - I think you might be overreacting. "Tail wagging"? Because of genetics, people often resemble other family members. I'm sure you resemble someone in your biological family. It's just a fact and hardly worth getting offended about.

      Delete
    9. 10:02, I'm not sure I understand your point in commenting. The people reading and commenting on this blog are most likely not young children who can't disassociate themselves from discussions about others. The audience here is mostly fans of this family, who come here to learn about the Duggar family and comment about the family. The question about who Mason resembles is a perfectly normal topic of conversation for this blog, and it's not the first time that people have discussed who a baby in this family resembles. It was an innocent question, and the whole adoption subject doesn't even apply in this case. No one should take offense at the question. The truth is that he does, in fact, resemble his big sister. Of course he's not a carbon copy of anyone else, he's his own person, but family resemblance is a perfectly normal topic of discussion.

    10. I have 3 adopted children and when people tell me that one of them looks liike me or their father I get a smile a mile wide

    5. It's pretty hard to tell from one photograph that a baby looks definitely like one side of the family or the other. People grow and change over the years and resemblances can also.

  11. cousins cousins and more cousins -
    The cousins could fill a class room - so many being born so close together. . . .and (think about it) this is just the beginning. . . .what with 19 kids.

    IMO - I doubt Jill will have any more babies. . . . she has not had an easy time giving birth.
    John D & Jana will be in their 30s when they (might) have children. That will limit the cousin count just a bit. However, I think they will top off around 55-60. WOW

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. John David said he plans to be a "bachelor till the rapture" so I don't know if there will be any grandkids from him. Jana could adopt some of her kids if she gets married later in life or have multiples so she could still have a lot of kids

      Delete
    2. I'm going to guess that Jim Bob and Michelle end up with over 100 grandchildren. I picture at least Jessa and Joy having a baby every 15-18 months. The two of them alone could end up with 30-35children between them.

      Delete
    3. My grandmother had 9 children and 49 grandchildren...Jane

      Delete
    4. If Jill does not have any more children, that'll kind of confirm to me that she maybe had a hysterectomy after Samuel, and that would explain why she looked so, so sad after that birth. Samuel's birth was an extremely eventful time, and we didn't see pictures for a long time afterward.

      Delete
    5. You don't need to have had a hysterectomy to call it quits. You could have many other things go wrong instead. They'll say that "God closed her womb" and that will be that.

      Delete
    6. I guess it'll also depend on the other kids ability to have kids. They could have a hard time giving birth like Jill. I'm really hoping Joy has a safe delivery. I know people have given birth as young as her, but she just seems really young, I hope she doesn't have huge babies like Jill and Jessa.

      Delete
    7. If Jill can't have any more babies she'll probably adopt some.

      Delete
    8. How many children or grandchildren they do or don't have is not a litmus test for Christianity or anything else for that matter. It takes no particular talent or skill to procreate. I would hope that the Duggars are good parents, as well as the next generation having children. Personally, I would never have wanted to have such a large family, for the simple reason that I wouldn't want the older kids to take on the full-time responsiblity of being caregivers for the younger ones.

      Delete
    9. Anonymous 8:42 please don’t speculate and start rumors about Jill having had a hysterectomy. She Nirvana any family member has made a statement indicating this has occurred. She had a difficult, long long labor, followed by a c-section. I don’t think she was sad after Sams birth I think she was exhausted and painful. Many women have c-sections and do not have hysterectomies. Your assumptions are rediculous!

      Delete
  12. Interesting, we do not see many pictures of Michelle holding/loving on the grandkids. She appears to be aloof - then again we only get glimpses into their lives.

    1. I've always thought that too. And on their show, you'd also see Jim Bob kissing his daughters on the forehead, but you'd never see Michelle kissing her children. She did hug Jinger though in NYC after Jeremy proposed, and it was a good heartfelt hug, and I saw there that Michelle must be a really loving Mom, but off camera.

      Delete
    2. Don't know what you two [3:36 & 8:39] have pulled over your eyes but Michelle is always showing affection to all of her children.

    4. I don't get that impression of Michelle at all. I remember one episode when they were visiting Josh and Anna in D.C., and she was getting in all the baby time with Marcus that she possibly could before they had to head back home.

      Delete
    5. I got the impression that she's more of a baby person, not really an older child person. I don't mean that in an unkind way, I really do like this family, that's just what I've always thought.

    1. Exactly!! She is so kind and loving. In every interaction with her children or grandchildren she shows her loving spirit.

    2. When?? Seriously..not being malicious. I’ve watched since 14 kids and counting. I have never noticed Michelle being affectionate toward any child sans Josie. She spoke more about what sibling would be getting their new “buddy” to raise around the 6 month point; and JB was her buddy, no children.

      Delete
    3. I have seen her hug her children many times and put her arm around them. She gets down on their level and talks to them. She is always kind and sweet in the tone she uses with them. She may not be kissy kissy but not everyone is. I hug my kids a lot but don’t kiss them much.

      Delete
    4. I have to agree with Anon 2:42 I have watched since the early days and I have never seen the Little ones run to their Mom when they were crying or even to jump on their Moms lap for a cuddle or even to walk over and just hug their Mom. She seemed to be mostly an instructor or teacher to them. My kids and well everyone I knows kids are very affectionate with us as we are to them also. There are lots of hugs and kisses and we can't imagine it any other way. She has a very different parenting style for sure. Maybe it's that buddy system that changes the normal and natural relationship between a Mom and her children.

      Delete
    5. She did not console her desperately crying daughter the time they were shopping for Joy's wedding dress. Many thought that was heartless and unfeeling. I can't imagine any mother not taking immediate action when that happened!
