7, Soon to Be 8

Josh Duggar, Anna Duggar, Marcus Duggar (2013), Mackynzie Duggar (2009)
Michael Duggar (2011), Meredith Duggar (2015), Mason Duggar (2017)

The first two November Duggar babies have already arrived. Joseph and Kendra Duggar welcomed Addison Duggar on November 2nd, and Josiah and Lauren Duggar met Bella Duggar on November 8th. Anna Duggar is due with the final November baby next week. This photo could very well be the last picture that Josh and Anna Duggar take with their kiddos before the new addition joins the clan. It was taken yesterday at Silver Dollar City.

    1. Why do some people keep going to Six Flags in CA, Castles and Coasters in AZ, Disney World, Disneyland or any of the other adventure parks?
      Because they are fun and family favorites. Why does it bother you that they go there in the first place?
      It's none of your business actually.

    2. Why judge? Who cares how many times they decide to go? They obviously enjoy it. I live in Florida, so I go to Disney all the time.

    3. It's local to their home and it's a great place to enjoy some family time together and I'm sure they have season passes. Nothing wrong with that, an lot of the time other members of the Duggar clan go as well. I'm sure the kids have a blast!!!

    4. It’s not my thing; but lots of people; especially kiddos, enjoy those type of parks!

      Delete
    5. Maybe they buy season passes or something. They seem to enjoy it.

      Delete
    6. They probably have season passes. Guess they like the park or they wouldn't go there so often.

    7. It’s a very nice park. It’s close so it makes for a great weekend getaway. They go other places too but they have a special place in their hearts for Silver Dollar City.

    8. I would not be at all surprised if the family has a business arrangement with SDC to promote their park.

  7. I somehow thought Anna's due date is this week. Well, so she is having a Sagittarius (Air sign), not a Scorpio! Sags are usually very communicable, the baby will fit well into the big family!

    3. I thought she was due about the first week of November. Glad to hear the update.

    4. @11:25 That's what I thought too until I looked into it more. I have a background in physical science so I studied it from that point of view. I think there's too much anecdotal evidence to ignore. I'm wondering, although I've never read such a study, if long ago, pregnancy at certain times of year impacted Homosapien brain development and personality. For instance, in a cold climate, a female pregnant during the summer would have access to foods and nutrients that a female pregnant in the winter would not have. Could those differences impact the developing fetus and possibly account for these "zodiac" personality traits, based on month of birth? Or could the light difference during the seasons account for different serotonin and melatonin levels in mothers, which impact fetal brains? Who knows. Most things in life do have an explanation, if we can find it.

      One more thing to consider is that the zodiac and the sun don't correspond any more to those sign birthdates that you're used to hearing. I won't go into technicalities, but the physics of the solar system has caused a natural shift or misalignment of where in the zodiac the sun was (appeared) the day you were born, versus where it was 3000 years ago when astrology was first used. So you're not who you think you are astrologically! Not based on where the sun actually appeared in the sky the day you were born.

      The intertwining of astrology and astronomy has been around since the Babylonians. What was a way to track time and seasons became a way to try to foretell the future and personalities, the "signs" we're used to talking about today. Religion intertwined with it, too. Look up Zoroastrianism if interested.

      So I wouldn't dismiss astrology so fast. It's fun and harmless, even if you don't believe there's anything to it. How many people do you know who seem to uncannily fit their zodiac sign personality traits? I know I fit mine, like a glove.

    5. She’s due thanksgiving day

    6. 4:57, I know just as many people who don’t fit their signs as do. And yes, there have already been studies done showing that the foods that are available during a mother’s pregnancy, as well as the weather can effect the growing baby. I am not discounting all of astrology (many of it is very interesting and in SOME ways factual) however, the signs do not dictate your personality as many peoples personalities do not align with their signs. genetics play just as large of a part as do environmental differences.

    7. Anon @11:25 AM: yeah, that's why millions of people faithfully read their horoscopes. Of course your sign determines your personality! Time of birth (month, season) determines personality traits.

      Delete
    8. I'm sure the Duggar's don't believe in horoscopes.

      Delete
    9. Sag is a Fire sign. She herself and Meredith are Cancers (Water), Josh is Pisces (Water), they don't go well together, the Fire baby's energy will be extinguished by Water parents.
      Mackynzie is Libra (Air), both Michael and Marcus are Geminis (Air). Fire and Air are very good combination (Fire needs Air to flame). Mason is a Virgo (Earth), stable Earth is irritated by Fire. So the baby will have good relationship with older siblings, but not with the younger ones.

    10. Astrology is occultic. Pretty sure the Duggars aren't into that.

  8. So glad to see Josh, Anna and their beautiful children. Josh made some mistakes but when he ask God for forgiveness it should have been over. I am tired of the names people call him. Please lets us not cast stones at him anymore.

    1. I would be a mess if it hadn't been for God's forgiveness for my sin. And He doesn't keep bringing it up like what the Bible calls "busy bodies and talebearers" do here! @8:08 Thank you! You are a dear!

      Delete
    2. Agreed, wish they were on the show as well. I miss watching the kids growing up!!!

      Delete
    3. I agree with you 8:08—let go and God will have the final say. I hope one day, Anna will write a book about how she came to forgiveness, worked to maintain her love for Josh and how Josh was rehabilitated. I think such a book could help many couples.

      Delete
    4. Agree 100%!he has been forgiven by his wife and family, but some stranger who have nothing to do with the situation can't forgive and move on! Absurd!

      Delete
    5. Anon 5.53. I would feel a lot happier about forgiving Josh if the family were more transparent about the help he received & that the girls in question were given proper therapy & psychological counselling & I don’t mean from some church pastor as this is what we have been led to believe in josh’s case. I wrote a comment that wasn’t posted & I had a strong feeling it wouldn’t be. I do feel Ellie & Lillie are very good at what they do & don’t post, but I feel something as serious as an incident relating to minors should always be taken seriously. Yes god does forgive everything but the way the Duggar’s just tried to brush this under the carpet & hope it would go away is wrong. I have noticed recently whenever Iv commented about something & said anything against the family, the post hasn’t been printed. A week or so ago I posted a comment about Jed’s qualifications to be running for political office due to lack of proper education & his age & that comment too wasn’t published. I do hope this is just because for some reason the msg didn’t get through, as I do enjoy this blog & the different viewpoints & would hate to think it would ever become somewhere that only praise is heaped upon this family. It just seems funny there are so many comments relating to Josh being forgiven & what a lovely family they are & yet non about his past misdemeanours & why he should never be allowed on tv again. I have a great deal of respect for Anna & her beautiful children are an absolute credit to her. I wish her nothing but well for baby number 6 & a safe delivery for mum & baby.

    6. What I worry about is if he truly did ask the Lord for forgiveness and if he has repented or just got caught and is doing the same behavior on the sly. Habits such as his are hard to overcome. I pray that he got the help he so desperately needs

      Delete
    7. Anon 5.12. I could not agree with you more. They are my thoughts exactly. It is very hard to keep thoughts & feelings like that under control & people with that mentality need a great deal of support to be able to stop those feelings.

      Delete
    8. Forgiveness is fine, but it doesn't resolve the underlying issues that caused Josh's behavior. That's like putting a band aid on an infection. I do wish people would stop digging up this bone though as the Duggars have spent years trying to bury it. Sometimes we just need to let it go.

  9. Precious family, thanks for sharing this wonderful picture. So many of us love you and have prayed for you for years, God is good all the time.

  11. How far is Silver Dollar City from where they live in Arkansas? It’s brave of Anna to leave town so close to her due date. I have 2 friends who did the same, one gave birth in the shoulder of interstate 5, and one in the back of a van that was driving. As much as either scenario would have freaked me out, both of these women seem almost casual about it. Both had healthy babies, and uncomplicated outcomes, but I’d be way too nervous to take that chance.
    I’m not being judgmental about traveling so close to her due date, I just think it’s surprising.
    I hope this birth goes smoothly for her.

    1. I think it's a couple of hours from their home. But I do agree with you that it's really a risk to travel even that far so close to your due date. She's had uneventful deliveries, but who would want to give birth on the side of the road or in an amusement park?

      Delete
    2. do you remember an early episode when she was traveling really close to her due date? it was on the duggar bus so it must have been myckenzie. i said it then and i'd say it again, no way would i do that, lol! it must be because she does home births that she doesnt worry. anna is amazing though. i admire her strength and reserve in every situation
      one of my coworkers sisters had her baby on a bridge. they were expecting a boy and had no girl names picked out. i suggested they name her bridgette

  12. They were at Silver Dollar yesterday? When does Josh work?

    1. True,my cousin's waters broke while working at the store she owned,no big deal,one of her employees stayed at the store and the other drove her to hospital,and as it was a slow labour she gave birth the next day,very rarely does a woman give birth in the car in the way to the hospital.

  15. I like the photo of 7 the kids are growing up so fast. I pray for a quick labor and delivery and a healthy mom and baby. I can't wait to see video and pics of the family of 8.

  16. Hopefully Anna was able to sit as much as she wanted and not become too uncomfortable. Maybe she wanted to do some walking to get labor started.

    1. She wanted to her labor started? At an amusement park? She was lucky she DIDN'T go into labor there.

    2. I think Anna has had enough children to know when her body is about to go into labor. No need for anyone else to be concerned!

  17. I cant wait to see Ana's new baby girl and I love how beautiful anas children look now that since they have grown up a lot may God bless ana and her children and her family

  18. I still like the name Mary Suzette, with nickname "Mazie".
    For John and Abbie, Amelia Johanna or Amelia Grace. (There's been a trend using the mother's middle name.

    1. beautiful names xx Auroa may also be a choice to do with the northen lights when they went on honeymoon. Cant wait to see what they are called its fum guessing its like an online baby shower game

    2. They already have a Meredith who is nicknamed “Mary”, they don’t need to name their new baby that as well

      Delete
    3. Meredith is not nicknamed Mary, she's nicknamed Dithie

      Delete
    4. Nee, they don't call Meredith "Mary." They call her "Dithy."

      Delete
    5. Mary and Meredith have different origins and meanings. The middle names or nicknames can differentiate. Joy-Anna and Johanna are very similar. Many times people use the same first name with different middle names. Robert Kennedy had two daughters named Mary, Mary Kerry and Mary Courtney. Back in the 60's when the first quintuplets were born, there were 4 girls and 1 boy. All the girls were named Mary: Mary Ann, Mary Catherine, Mary Margaret and Mary Magdalene. If one is called "Dithy" and one is called "Zettie" (for Suzette) or "Mazie" they are still their own people and won't get confused. Maybe they could use Mary as a middle name. It does seem like the name Mary continues the circle of life and seems to be appropriate at this time.

  19. I bet they will name their daughter Mary, which fits with their M theme and commemorates Grandma Duggar, who died this year.

    Replies
    1. Mary sounds like "Mery" which they call Meredith, so I don't think they will call the baby Mary (though it would be very good).

      Delete
    2. That would be a lovely gesture. Or even MaryAnn To incorporate both great grandma and Mom. Or Mary Michelle would be pretty.

      Delete
    3. Hmmm.... a Meredith and a Mary. I don't think I will take that bet.

      Delete
    4. Meredith's nickname is Dithie

      Delete
    5. OP here. They never called Meredith Mery. Her nickname is Dithie.

      Delete
    6. I'm guessing Mary Michelle too,did you notice none of the other November babies had Mary as a first or middle name and this is the year grandma Mary died someone's bound to honour grandma by naming baby after her the other couples who had babies this year probably did'nt use the name because they already know Anna and Josh are going to use it either as a name,middle name or an alternative like Marie or Maria or other.
