Little Sister Ivy

Ivy Seewald is five days old! We have a couple new photos of her to share, and we decided to include newborn pictures of her older brothers so you can see the resemblance.

  2. Ellie, could you do a side by side of Ivy and Felicity, since some of us think they look very similar?

  3. She definitely looks like Spurgeon when you compare their newborn photos! But, she may end up looking like Henry later on. We will see! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

  4. IMO they all look pretty much the same. I don't think Henry and Spurgeon look that much alike now.

    1. Shouldn't you be saying I love you 5 instead of 4? In case you didn't realize, there are five people in their family now.

    2. They could still have 15 sons.

    3. If that’s important to them

    4. LOL. I feel like a dope, I love U 5!!!!!!!! Ben dreamt he had 15 sons, when he was very young, and playing sport. Ben said that when Jessa was pregnant with her 1st, and that is why I said 15 sons, OK!!!! Not everyone know as much as I do!!!

  9. All 3 appear to have the same eyes, nose and cheeks. Ivy has different lips.

  11. Congratulations on your beautiful baby girl!

  12. She's cute, except for that thing tied on her head. Can't really see her head or hair. If those things are important for keeping a baby's head warm, then the 2 boys sure missed out.

    1. It’s a bow lots of people like them if you don’t, don’t put them on YOUR kids.

      Delete
    2. I have to admit I get tired of seeing the big bows on all the Duggar baby girls. It would be a nice change just to see the baby for herself.

      Delete
    3. There are little caps made for newborns, boy and girl both. Jessa no doubt used them on her boys who were both born in the winter. You can't really see the baby's hair under those, either (and why does the hair have to be always showing?). After having a couple of boys, I'm sure Jessa is going to have fun with girly clothes and accessories for her newest baby. This is the mother's prerogative, and nothing she should be criticized for. When you have a baby, you can dress it however you like, and see whether you would like strangers picking apart your choices.

    4. It would be nice to see a pic without a bow so we can see her hair. As for the bows to each there own.

      Delete
    5. Agreed OP. It's not even a cute color. It looks like a piece of an old sweater.

      Delete
    6. For goodness sake the Bows are fine and not only the Duggar’s use them ! She could just not show any pictures at all, heck I wouldn’t since all you folks can be so negative !

      Delete
    7. I have a daughter and 5 boys in a row. If I had another little girl after 5 boys, I'd put bows in her hair and such too.
      I'm sure Jessa doesn't always put big bows in her daughter's hair, but if she does, who cares. It's her daughter. It's definitely not a sign of neglect. I can understand if people are upset because of neglect, but that's definitely not the case. It's hair bows, get over it.

  13. Nice bab

  15. She looks more like Henry than Spurge in that photo and kinda like her Duggar-Keller cousins.

  16. Imagine growing up and realizing that your siblings have beautiful names like Henry and Ivy and your name is Spurgeon, I still do not understand why they did not use Elliot as the first name. Elliot, Henry and Ivy is perfect

    1. Agree...I bet he will go by his middle name by the time he is a teenager.

      Delete
    2. When he’s older he can choose to go by his middle name if he wants. Spurgeon is an unusual name but for him it’s his moniker and who knows it might have become trendy by the time he is old enough to care. I didn’t like it at first, it’s grown on me over time.

      Because they already had a Elliot on Ben side of the family .
      I like Spurgeon as a first name.

      Delete
    4. Spurgeon fits him nicely I think !

      Delete
    5. People complained about both Spurgeon and Henry's names. I hope Ivy's big brothers don't call her Poison Ivy.

      Delete
  17. She's adorable! I love her precious little face and her headband just adds to her cuteness. Hope everyone is staying healthy and gaining their strength back.

  18. She looks way more like Spurgeon's newborn pictures (the ones not shown in this post). But only time will tell... she definitely favors her mom's genes regardless. Adorable kids, adorable family.

  19. For the babies due in November, I'm guessing a girl for Kendra, another boy for Joy, a girl for Lauren, and a 4th boy for Anna.

    I think that 2020 will bring courtships and weddings for Jana, Jed, Jer and Jason. I think it will bring babies for Abbie, Jill and Jinger.

    2021- Babies for Anna, Jana, Jessa, Kendra, Lauren, Joy, Jer's wife, Jed's wife, Jason's wife.

    1. A baby for Jana in 2021? I think you're anticipating something that may not ever happen. The others are a lot more likely

      Delete
  20. They all look identical!
    I also don't understand why so many people say Ivy looks like Felicity? Felicity looks so different, she looks more like Jeremy and his mom actually, she has closer set eyes and longer nose. Ivy has Jessa's cute nose and wider face.

    1. I know I don’t see Felicity in her face at all๐Ÿ˜‚ I think Ivy looks the most like Ben out of their three kids, and looks more like Henry than Spurgeon.

      Delete
  21. They all look alike as infants. Henry and Spurgeon do not look alike now. Three beautiful children. God Bless.

  25. She's so cute! My middle name is Jane as well <3 I love the name Ivy, I wonder if there is a meaning as to why they picked that name-something similar to the boys-or if they just like it :)

  26. They all look pretty much alike. If you changed the labels on the pictures I don't think anyone would know. lol

    1. The head wrap would give it away instantly....

  27. I went on line - looked up popular girl's names in 2018 -
    Ivy was listed as # 14 - I had not heard of anyone with that name in a long time. I LIKE IT.

  28. She looks so much like Spurgeon the nose and those cheeks oh my!

  29. With two big brothers I am sure she’ll be quite the tomboy!

    1. Or not. My daughter has three older brothers and she is very girly.

    2. I have a friend with four older brothers and she is the complete opposite of a tomboy lol It really just depends on your own personality.
