    Josiah and Lauren: He Has To Marry Somebody

    I think she’s going with creatively-spelled continents. We’ve already had Asa. Since this baby is a girl, I think she’ll be Ostraylea, who will be followed by Yerup, Auntartyka, Ahfrikah, and the twins, North Uhmeryka and South Uhmeryka. I’m hoping this means they’ll stop at seven kids, but they’ll probably just switch to planets or something.
  2. Josie looks a bit like Taylor Swift in this photo.
  3. The AMA is back up if you click the link, so I guess they must have verified her story. I wonder what this IFBP “bombshell” out of Alabama is.

    JD and Abbie: Captured Before the Rapture

    No pictures. Hmm, I wonder what’s up. If she were pregnant I think it would have come out by now (the news, not the baby). That family can’t keep pregnancy news quiet to save their lives.
  5. So there was a birthday party at Chuckie Cheese for Sofia and only Jill, David and Sofia got to go? Wow, that’s just harsh. It’s free to get in! They could have taken all the younger kids and just let them play a game or two each. That would still be more fun than sitting at home listening to Nurie prattle on about her courtship.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    Trader Joe’s has a lot of reasonably healthy convenience foods that can be cooked in a microwave. We don’t have one where I live, and I miss it. I think Jinger probably eats more than a couple bites, but I don’t think she ever finishes those huge meals she’s pictured with. Jeremy must be working out regularly in order to not be putting on weight, though.
  8. Steve will probably take Ellie back to the vet in a couple years and demand that they reinstall her uterus. Because Jesus.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    I read a bit about Gabby and she actually sounds like a nice girl from a humble background who’s not taking anything for granted. She also can really sing, which is more than I can say for a lot of Idol alums. I hope she wises up and realizes Cade is a pretentious asshole who wants her to sacrifice her ambition and spend her life cooking his dinner. She talks a lot about her dad and how much he sacrificed for her career — I can’t imagine he’s thrilled about the upcoming nuptials.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    Check out her upper arms. She’s thin, but not skeletal. She might be near the low end of her normal BMI range, but I doubt she’s underweight.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    This is an interesting thought. I wrote in Becky in the third row precisely because I found the idea of Derick cheating hilarious on its face. Nobody would want him, and he doesn’t seem like the type. There are a lot of things I wouldn’t be surprised to learn about Derek, but I would be surprised to hear he was carrying on with another woman. Jeremy, on the other hand, very much seems like the type — shallow, easily flattered, image-obsessed. I would not be the least bit surprised to hear, down the road, that he was stepping out on Jinger or even that he had left her for someone else. I think he loves Jinger and Felicity, but I think he’s always going to have that streak that wants the shiniest, best, newest thing. Do you think Jinger realizes this is part of the bargain she’s made? I wonder if that explains the changes we’ve seen in Jinger? She’s the only one of the girls who seems to be a good homemaker — their house is always picked up, there’s no clutter or chaos, the baby is always clean, happy and impeccably dressed. She seems to have learned to cook relatively healthful meals, including fresh produce. She stays very thin, even right after giving birth, has learned to do her makeup so it actually looks attractive rather than the standard Duggar raccoon eyes and too much bronzer, and always dresses in a way that looks fashionable and polished, even just for a quick trip to the grocery store. Her recent hair adventures seem to have been a misstep, but she’s learned to go for updos and hats to cover the worst of the damage. Maybe she just likes staying fit and looking good, because it such a change from how she was raised. I do wonder, though, whether part of it is her way of making sure Jeremy’s eye doesn’t wander. There is nothing I find more irritating than a grown man who calls his girlfriend “Mama.”

    At least Felicity is wearing a normal top and pants rather than a dress over leggings!

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    I don’t think that’s the consensus at all. A few people have speculated that Jill is now infertile due to complications from Sam’s birth, but that’s all. There’s no evidence supporting that idea save the facts that she had a c-section and they haven’t announced another pregnancy yet. Spacing pregnancies at more than 2 years apart wouldn’t even be worth mentioning if Jill wasn’t a Duggar, and not all the Duggar kids are going to replicate Michelle’s fecundity — in fact, so far only Joe and Kendra and (maybe) Jessa and Ben are headed down that path. Many of the couples, such as Jinger and Jeremy and JD and Abbie, seem to be shifting to a more fundie-light, mainstream conservative Christian lifestyle, including the use of birth control. I wouldn’t be surprised if Derick and Jill are following suit. Jill’s still in her twenties, they have plenty of time to have another after Derick finishes law school. As to the Izzy v. Sam (ha — see what I just did there?) favoritism, Sam seems to be a pretty mellow kid and Izzy seems kind of anxious and high-strung. It’s possible that Izzy just grates on Jill and Derick’s nerves more so they’re less patient with him. It’s also interesting that Derick was around a lot more while Izzy was a young child than he has been with Sam; maybe he’s less strict with Sam because he isn’t around to notice most of his “misbehavior” (which actually seems to be totally age-appropriate behavior when not viewed through the lens of all children are sinners).
  14. And of course Jyler is wearing an antiabortion t-shirt, because that’s what all the 12-year-old boys wear to the rodeo. 🙄

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    My house is 800 square feet (we do also have a basement but we rarely use it for anything) and we get by just fine. Jill’s house seems big enough to meet their needs just fine. I do think they’ve misallocated the space, though. There’s nothing wrong with having the boys share a room (keep in mind that shared bedrooms are the norm for Jill) but that room is tiny. The bed and crib are jammed together and there isn’t any room to play. It makes no sense to have them crammed in there like that while a bigger room sits basically unused. I do think the reason they went with a four-bedroom rather than a three-bedroom is that they plan to have another child. I don’t think Jill would mind having a third boy in Sam and Izzy’s room but there’s no way she would put a girl in there.
