Kendra's 8th Sibling

When Joseph Duggar married Kendra Caldwell in September 2017, Kendra was the oldest of seven children. About five months after Joe and Kendra welcomed their son Garrett Duggar, Kendra's parents, Paul and Christina Caldwell, delivered their eighth child. 

As we posted in August, Kendra is expecting Baby #3 in February 2021. Her mom just announced that she is pregnant, as well. Baby #9 is due in May 2021. Congratulations to the Caldwells! Paul and Christina currently have five boys and three girls. 

And to add to the excitement, Lauren Caldwell (the second eldest) was just engaged to a guy named Titus. Congrats to the couple!

Jana and the Grandkids

Over the past couple years, Jessa Seewald has embraced the minimalist lifestyle. She has worked to de-clutter her home and simplify her storage and organization systems. With a family of five, including three active children under the age of five, living in a two-bedroom house, efficient use of space is key. 

All that to say, you'll notice in this photo that the Seewalds' living room doubles as their toy and book room. A while ago, Jessa moved the coffee table out to provide a bigger space to play. 

Do you consider yourself to be a minimalist?

Austin Goes Skydiving

This week, Austin flew his family of four to Alabama to visit relatives. While there, Austin got together with Trace Bates and Lawson Bates and went skydiving. Do you remember watching 19 Kids and Counting "Duggars Shoot for the Sky" back in January 2011? In celebration of her 18th birthday, Jessa Duggar went skydiving with her mama, Michelle Duggar.

16 Years of Duggars

Has it really been 16 years? We say this every fall, but time sure does fly. 2020 marks the 16th anniversary of the Duggars' first television special. "14 Children and Pregnant Again" premiered on September 6th, 2004. 

Since that day, more than 300 specials and episodes of 17 Kids and Counting, 18 Kids and Counting, 19 Kids and Counting, and Counting On have been shown to the public. It's no doubt that the Duggars will go down in reality TV history.
