Vuolos on Valentine's

It has been quite some time since we have posted a new photo of Felicity. At almost 19 months, she is an active little girl who loves to explore her surroundings. Last season of Counting On ended before Felicity's first birthday, and we know you are hoping that the show will return soon so you can watch all the newest footage. No news on a premiere date, but we will keep you posted.

TLC just uploaded Grace Duggar's birth special to the network website. The links and our brief recap are below.

Recap
Before Gracie arrives, John-David films a video for his wife and daughter. He shares the story of how he and Abbie met and interviews other family members, as well.

"There's a lot of excitement, a lot of anxiousness, a lot of change," says Abbie, as she prepares to meet the new addition.

At around 4pm, Abbie begins having contractions. Michelle arrives and accompanies the couple to the hospital around 3am. Abbie is sent home to rest after being told that her labor has stalled. The following morning, John and Abbie visit the doctor for a check-up.

Abbie labors at home for a little longer, with support from her parents (Cheryl and John), John, and Michelle. After another appointment with the doctor, Abbie is 3cm dilated and admitted to the "low intervention room" at the hospital. Jana, Johannah, Jennifer, Jordyn, Josie, and Mackynzie arrive with snacks requested by the parents-to-be. Jim Bob also comes to the hospital.

After 30 hours of labor, Abbie receives Pitocin to speed things up and gets an epidural. Grace Annette Duggar arrives about six hours later. The special shows photos but does not show footage of the birth.

When the family of three returns home, the Duggars pile into their 660-square-foot house to meet Gracie.
