Grandma and Grandpa Duggar

When you have 11 grandchildren under the age of nine (five of whom are under 17 months), photo shoots are almost impossible. The Duggar family recently met up to take pictures, and Jim Bob and Michelle made sure to snap one with their grandkids. It's a candid shot, but it's still lovely!

Within the next few weeks, Duggar grandchild #12 will arrive.

    1. My in-laws have 46 grandchildren, and they certainly know all their names!

    2. 11:04 - Jim Bob and Michelle themselves are the ones that always say they’ll have to put name tags on the babies soon.

    3. Anon, 11:04 do your in-laws know all their birthdays?

    4. My grandparents had 46 grandchildren and 38 greatgrandchildren and not only did they know all our names but we all got cards on our birthday up until my grandmother's death at the age of 94!

  2. That photo will become a precious memory for the Duggars. Soon we'll turn around and these babies will be kids riding bikes and on their way to being teens. I have enjoyed watching this whole family grow up.

  3. Why don't we see Sam in the picture. Is something wrong with him?

    1. He's the baby sitting on Michelle's lap. Nothing wrong.

      Delete
    2. Sam is on Michelle’s lap,he appears to developmentally right on track. What is this seeming obsession with there being something wrong with him? Just because we didn’t see his birth and there has been reports that he was in the NICU for a bit doesn’t mean he suffers from any ongoing problems. He seems active, happy, smiling and healthy.

    3. I believe Sam is sitting in Michelle's lap.

    4. Samuel is on Michelle's lap. All 11 grandchildren are in the picture. Henry is the only one who is really hard to see. He's leaning backwards next to his brother.

    11. He is in the picture... at least his legs are. He probably didn’t want to sit there, so he is trying to get down. At his age, children do not like to sit still.

    22. How terribly rude. There is nothing “wrong” with any child. Why pick on a child? And, there was just a recent post on Sam which shows how he is already on his way to walking.

  4. Spurgon did not have matching clothing. Why Not? The rest is dressed the same.

    1. Maybe he played in the mud and messed them up

      Delete
    2. It's just the lighting, there are more shades of red in the clothing. Don't be so negative, the photo looks just lovely!

      Delete
    3. Sam was there he was trying to escape backwards

      Delete
    4. Maybe because he's 2,5 years and has his own opinion on things? Lol. He's such a cutie.

      Delete
    5. Grandpa’s shirt has pink in it. Spurgeon matches grandpa.

  5. Anna childeren always look so good. Really nice. Spurgeon wears the wrong colors.

    1. Anna needs a little fun with her childeren. She has a lot of difficult moments.

      Delete
    2. You sound like you are the same person who posted at 334 and 335 also, are you? If so that is a bit excessive don't you think?

      Delete
    3. He looks just as darling as the rest of the children. ❤️

      Delete
    4. Spurgeon is the cutest of them al.

      Delete
    5. Yes, Anna's kids are the best dressed. They look so put together.

      Delete
    6. Reading these comments...*sigh*. Why can't we just appreciate each individual child as a special little guy/girl, cretaed in the image of God? Why can't we just delight in each one's unique personality, with their likes and dislikes? Instead, we'll pick "favorites" and run the others down? Can we not see how wrong that is? It's even worse when we're picking, based on how much cuter one is, or how this is better dressed than that one, etc. Shaking my head here. :/

  6. Michelle isn’t wearing black panty hose and tire-tread shoes!! Her skirt is above the knee. Her face is youthful. Her figure trim. Rock it Grandma!!

    2. I agree she looks so much younger without the super long skirts and black panty hose and blaco ortho pedic shoes. She looks very youthful and pretty.

      Delete
  7. Cute picture. Kids will be kids! A thought to notice that Anna's kids are all dressed, pressed and waiting patiently. Older, wiser parents and older siblings to help keep the little ones attention. Jill and Jessa's families haven't gotten there yet. Funny contrast.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I do not agree. Jessa s childeren seem to have fun and play. Anna's childeren do not look happy.

      Delete
    2. I think Anna’s kids just don’t like taking pictures, they’re always happy in videos.

      Delete
    3. Agree with 10:24! Anna’s children are quite serious imo

      Delete
    4. Jessa and Ben are fantastic parents. They really seem to like the childeren and have fun.

      Delete
    5. I agree with you anon 10:24
      Jessa's kids se happy and always look adorable. Anna's kids make be dressed to impress but you can see the sadness in their little eyes. They do not look care free and happy like the other kids

  8. LOVE this! Hoping we can see one soon where all grandkids are visible! It will be fun to see these pics grow and grow over time!

  14. Lovely photo of them but sadly it's poor quality, they're all blurry as it's taken facing into the light.

    1. It’s a candid shot of when they were getting the pic taken. They’ll probably released the actual shot later

  15. LOL Its like herding cats trying to keep the little ones sitting still. My Mom had 12 children and now has 30 grandchildren so far. We just took a picture of a group of them together and one of them apparently thought it was a good time to practice his whistling, so his expression is hilarious. Others were facing each other talking, others laughing hysterically, others looking around, one in deep thought with a real serious expression. We wondered what part of look at the camera and smile did not one of them understand LOL But it was so hilarious that we made copies of the picture and framed them. We love it because you will always be in a happy mood whenever you look at the picture. LOL

  16. Very nice "candid" photo - too bad Henry was leaning backwards.
    Israel appears to be quite tall for his age - takes after Derick for sure.
    Makes me wonder HOW MANY grandchildren will be in the next photo. . . . with Anna having babies every other year, and both Jill and Jessa talking about adopting AND Josiah just married and John will most likely soon be married.
    WOW

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don’t think Jill and Jessa will end up adopting. They both stopped talking about it

      Delete
    2. He was either leaning backwards or fell backwards. Jessa is sorta hiding behind Michelle.

      Delete
    3. 11:34, I don’t know about Jill, but Jessa recently said she and Ben still want to adopt

  17. So funny! Love this post!

  18. Please update the main family picture after Jinger gives birth. Its missing people.

    1. That’s probably what they’re waiting for lol

    2. They'd have to take a weekly photo in order to make sure it's updated and satisfies every fan. It's a given that at least one person will be pregnant at any given time.

      Delete
    3. I expect a pregnancy announcement from Jill Jessa Anna and Lauren anytime now.

      Delete
    4. I don’t think we’ll hear any pregnancy announcements from Jill or Anna for another year, but probably Lauren within the next few months, and I’d guess one from Jessa (possibly even an adoption announcement) within the next 8 months

      Delete
  19. Awww - Michelle, you look great! What a great bunch of grandkids.

    ReplyDelete
  20. So many little boys! At least Jinger will bring in another girl for Mackynzie and Meredith! They are all so sweet! Blessings to you all!

  21. Aw, that's fun! I'd like to see grandkid pics like this more often!

  22. Well I think you all took a great picture considering all the little ones you had to set still.

  31. Aw man if they could have waited a few weeks, Jinger’s baby would be here and that’s be all the current grand babies. But cute candid pic.

    1. They took advantage of the fact that they were all reunited for Josiah’s wedding and took pics. They’ll probably wait till the next wedding (John’s, likely) to take pics again with Jinger’s baby

  32. Of course, Jessa had to be in the picture too.

  34. All Michelle had to do was to hold Henry with the other hand.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don’t think that would have helped. Jessa has both hands on him and can’t get him to sit up. Children just don’t always cooperate for pictures. We have many pictures like that of all of my parents’ grandchildren. It is funny to go back and look at them.

    1. It’s been years since Michelle has been pregnant, so her body has been able to recover. When she was having a baby a year it was hard to get in shape again but now that she’s given her body a break it really shows, she looks great!

  39. I've always preferred photographs that are not of the "say cheese" perfection variety. A bit of spontaneity can make all the difference.

  40. How many grandkids they will have in 5 years? 25? 30? In 5 years there will be another 5 Duggars married.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I anticipate that 6 more kids will be married in 5 years from now...Jana, John, Jed, Jer, Jason and James...maybe even Justin! I think there will be around 40 grandkids by then, with several more on the way!
