We hope that all our readers had a wonderful weekend. Just wanted to jump on here and share a new mother-daughter photo of Lauren and Bella. Bella will be five months old on April 8th. Do you think she has more Duggar or Swanson features right now?

  12. What a lovely picture of Lauren & Bella. The little one is looking more like Josiah as she gets older & she isn’t so much the image of Lauren.

  15. What an absolutely beautiful picture. Mommy and baby have such gorgeous smiles. Bella is a gorgeous little doll, such pretty eyes and smile. I think she looks like both parents, but possibly a little more like Josiah. I bet they are so proud of her. God bless.

    4. Oh I am sorry Saskia. Hope you get better soon!

    5. Thank you all so much.

    6. Saskia, my daughter & myself have been self isolating due to contact with covid (haven't been tested so cant be sure if we have had it or not though my daughter had symptoms of severe lethargy, temperature, sore throat & runny nose). I do hope your on the road to recovery, my daughter is feeling much better now & apart from a nasty bought of conjunctivitis I’m feeling fine. It’s nice having this blog to still come to, even though so much has changed with the world in the last month it’s good to know people I had contact with back then are still commenting & hopefully all are well. It’s difficult here in the UK, my son is miles away from me & cant come home to visit as he is a doctor & just too busy with his work. He is meant to be studying heart surgery but at the present time he has been redeployed to ICU to work with covid patients as he has the skills needed to care for them. I miss him dearly & worry for his health daily. We all feel we are in the same boat with this, so god bless you & get well soon.

    7. So sorry to hear that, Saskia. Hope you start feeling better very soon. :)

      Fuzzyferet, be sure pass on our thanks to your son for the work he is doing. We have friends who are working with ICU covid patients, as well. Very grateful for all the health care professionals on the front lines!

      Lily and Ellie

    8. @Fuzzyferet Conjunctivitis is a symptom doctors are seeing with Covid-19.

      Delete
    9. Fuzzyferet. My husband is a nurse. He s also working very hard these days. Thanks to your son, may he help lots of people. I miss my son so much. He lives in a home for people wit a mental handicap. Visits are not more allowed. Very difficult for him not to see anybody of the family. Thank you all. My fever is gone now and im sure i will recover quickly.

      Delete
    10. Oh Saskia my heart goes out to you with your son. It must be so difficult for you not being able to see him & for him to be able to understand why your no longer allowed to visit. I hope with all the work of the health care professionals like my Son, & your husband & the scientists working on a vaccine, that we all come out of this soon. I’m not allowed back at my work as the senior midwifery manager at the maternity hospital where I have worked for many years until this is over as apart from having had to self isolate due to my daughter having possibly had covid, I have an autoimmune condition that I take a chemotherapy medication for, this makes me immunocompromised (which isn’t usually an issue), but at the moment makes me very susceptible to this virus & if I caught it I could be one of those patients that gets very ill. I’m so missing my work & I’m not used to sitting around the house unable to go out but we all have to just make do & get on. I hope you can skype your son regularly & that he understands that you will be there to visit him soon & give him the biggest hug when you see him. Please take care of yourself & I hope your husband is safe at his work too. I have always wanted to write a book about my career as a midwife & im going to give it a go now while we are on lockdown as I have a feeling it will be many months before things go back to normal & I need something to keep me busy.

    11. Anon 10.42. Thank you, I am aware doctors think conjunctivitis is a symptom of covid. However I get this a great deal (at least twice a month) so it’s more likely it’s just my regular bout. Thank you for your concern, I hope you are well & safe wherever you are.

      Delete
    12. Lily & Ellie. Thank you for your kind words, I hope you ladies are safe & well & taking all the precautions you need to take to keep safe. Lily I hope your little boy is ok & well protected from catching anything too. It appeared at first that this virus didn’t really impact babies & young children, however it is now affecting more & more of them, so please keep you little one safe. I hope all the blog readers are safe, we all lead very different lives & we are n many & varied across the globe, but at the moment we are all in exactly the same position. We all need to care for one another & pray this is over soon.

  18. Looks like a Duggar to me. I really like Lauren's hair. So becoming to her.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I’m sorry My first language is not English
      Could you please explain what “becoming” means?

      Delete
    2. In this context it means 'flattering'; her hair style looks becoming or flattering to her face, for example. ❤

      Delete
    3. Basically is means it looks good on her.

      Delete
    4. Hi! It means that her hair is flattering to or fits well with her overall appearance. :-)

      Delete
  19. She’s 100% Duggar!

  20. There's something so very special about Bella! In all of the pictures I've seen so far, Bella shows an extra "spark" of personality. Can't quite put my finger on it but this little baby has an extra "something" that wow's me. Maybe others see it too?

    1. Me too. Not sure what it is, but there's something extra special about her.

      Delete
    2. No sorry, I can't say I've noticed it.

      Delete
    3. I totally agree!

      Delete
    4. I noticed that too. I remember seeing a couple of pictures of her even younger then she is now and thinking how alert she seems to be, way beyond her age alert. She is absolutely adorable!!! 👼

      Delete
    5. Yes, even in the birth episode she seemed very alert.

      Delete
    6. I know, I noticed it too. In the hospital, her eyes were wide open and alert. I think it might be her big eyes and smile that makes her look older than she really is. She's such a cute baby!

      Delete
    7. The way everybody speaks of Bella is how I feel about my baby girl! So alert and so special (and oh man does she keep me on my toes...and she's only 15 months)!

      Delete
  21. She is a child of God , She is Beautiful & She is a Blessing ❤️🌷

    ReplyDelete
  22. Those gorgeous blue eyes are definitely from Josiah :) The rest? just full-on cuteness! Beautiful baby (and mama)! God bless!

    ReplyDelete
  23. She is adorable and mami is beautiful

    ReplyDelete
  24. She looks like her mama to me. But ya can't be 100% sure.
    Beautiful Pic.

    ReplyDelete
  25. She is so CUTE!!!! I don't know anything about sewing or crocheting, so is the cap handmade, and if so who made it? I like it a lot.

    1. I don't care for the color. It's too washed out. All I ever see that baby in is beige or gray. Lauren too. And her house. Is this some sort of Millennial trend?

      Delete
    2. As for Lauren's house, it is very stylish. Because of the show Fixer Upper with Chip and Joanna Gaines, the neutral, farmhouse look is very, very popular. This is a look that is minimal, comfortable, and rather easy for most people to achieveI think her home is lovely.

      Delete
    3. Well, the colors go really well with Bella's coloring. She looks so healthy.

      Delete
    4. What's "stylish" today is outdated tomorrow.

      Delete
    5. 10:40, so true. But if people can and want to change things up every so often, so what?

      Delete
  26. 80% Swanson, 20% Duggar.

    1. Yes just like that except the other way around 😁

      Delete
    2. 1:38 I agree. She has Josiah's coloring, but so do Lauren's father and her two younger sisters, Lydia and Lucy. To me, her eyes are like a light blue version of Lauren's, which I also saw in Lauren's sisters. A hispanic look, but blonde. Kendra's son Garrett is blonde Joe in same way.

      Delete
    3. Her brows especially are Swanson!

      Delete
    4. 9:48 PM: how come blue eyes can be a version of brown eyes?

      Delete
  27. I think she's lookin' like her daddy here, so I guess I'd say Duggar!

    ReplyDelete
  28. She looks just like Lauren’s dad!

    1. Wow she kind of does!! You’re right!

  29. I think Bella looks like her daddy in this pic. I can't wait to see her in the new season. Natasha B.

  30. Duggar side, and she's got that funny bone like Josiah. S.

  31. I think she has your Dad's eyes..she is so pretty

    ReplyDelete
  32. I see a resemblance to Lauren’s father!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Not sure who she looks like more, but Bella is certainly adorable. What a sweet smile.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Duggar for sure.

  35. What a darling baby! She's got her dad's eyes.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Look at those blue eyes! I think she has more Duggar looks. Her smile reminds me of Felicity or Ivy. Bella looks so grown-up!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I actually thought she has some of Lauren’s dad look in her...idk why, but I saw it right away. I know you’re all thinking Josiah or Duggar but I think there’s a lot of Lauren’s dad going on here.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Bella is ADORABLE!!! Looks like a Duggar.....Your Blessed!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I think Bella looks so much like Josiah. Lauren and Josiah are both such good-looking people. Another Poster mentioned that Bella seems to have a special spark, and I totally agree. She just sparkles with personality and a hint of being fun-loving. That, I believe, is from Josiah. It is good to see Lauren looking so genuinely happy!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wow! She sure has changed! I remember seeing her newborn pictures, she looked exactly like her mother.
    Now she looks just like her daddy!

    ReplyDelete
  41. She looked just like Lauren when she was born, but has changed a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  42. 100 percent has her dads eyes and eyebrows!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I think Bella looks like her cousin Meredith in this picture :)
    Also, just out of curiosity what color are Lauren’s eyes? I always wondered if they were brown or blue but in this photo they kind of look hazel? I wonder what color Lauren would say they were.
    Blessings to all! <3

    1. You are correct, she has blue and brown eyes. Her eyes are beautiful.

      Delete
    2. I think Lauren's eyes are light brown, but not hazel. Her mom has brown eyes, and her dad has blue eyes, so I think Lauren has this rare color that is not the exact color of her mom's eyes but a little lighter. Very pretty.

      Delete
  44. She is the most precious baby she looks like a little doll and those big blue eyes are beautiful she looks alot like her mom as of now

    ReplyDelete
  45. Not sure which she looks more like, but she is 'cuter than a bug's ear'! One of the cutest babies I've ever seen!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh my goodness what a cutie!!! Very nice picture! I see Duggar in her at the moment but it could change

  47. Bella is a beauty. God Bless. God Bless.

    My dad had big blue eyes!

  49. She is a dollbaby! Her mama is gorgeous but I see a little bit more of her daddy's features starting to emerge! What a beautiful family!

  50. Baby girl is very photogenic. Poor Lauren - pretty girl but she looks tired and disheveled in this one. Babies are a lot of work.

  52. She is a beautiful baby!!! Much congrats!

  53. I think at this stage she looks more Duggar than Swanson. Sorry Lauren! I think you'll get your turn as she ages though.
