  1. One might have nothing to do with the other. As another poster indicated, Lawson was the only one from the Bates who posted anything on SM lately. Wouldn't he be the quiet one if he was in a courtship?
  2. At least he's sitting on the floor this time?
  3. There's a show on HGTV where comedians are commenting on a House Hunters episode while it is running. I think Derick needs to do something like that.
  4. If I'm understanding what you're saying, that's an interesting point. I think Derick has helped Jill come this way, but I hadn't considered the possibility that Jill could outgrow Derick.
  5. I maintain that hair aside, Jeremiah looks the most like a young JB. (Although Jer seems to be the only Duggar son who doesn't have a receding hairline, so that's something else he shares with JB.)
  6. Isn't that the sign for "asshole?" (It might be turned wrong though.) I don't think any of the Duggars look as much like JB as Amy looks like young Deanna. I think Jeremiah and Joe come closest, though.
  7. Joy looks very pretty in those photos. The green long cardigan-like thingy looks like it is part of a lingerie outfit. Joy's kind of a wild card to me. There are a few details where I wonder if she's going in the direction of Jill and detaching herself from the family. For example, she has worn sleeveless shirts baring her shoulders, it looks like she will not be a prominent part of Counting On, and clearly this shower does not appear to have any other Duggars, at least in those photos, so it seems like she's got her own set of friends. On the other hand, she's supposedly the most conservative of the Duggar daughters, and yet she doesn't make a point of flaunting Jesus on her social media.
  8. For comparison, here's Jinger at 20 weeks with Felicity. I'd say it's about the same.
  9. I will say that the Bates boys pull off what they are trying to pull off better than the Duggar boys, which I'm guessing is some sort of men's modeling motif. The only Duggars who looked halfway decent in that flag photo were Jeremiah and Justin. And don't get me started on Bunk Bed Jed! Which of the Bates boys are in the photo? I'm guessing Lawson is one. ETA: The caption was cut off, and I see why. Here it is, it wasn't what I expected. OK, so with that in mind, I'd say that while the Bateses look better, the Duggars' picture - marginally - better matches the message they were going for. "There’s rarely a moment our inner peace, emotional state, and overall mentality can’t be improved to some degree with changes in our focus— from self to faith, from my negatives to all my blessings, from temporal things to eternal things, from despair to my hope in Jesus. The great psalmist King David said this, “I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living... Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.” Can we always control, know, or even understand life’s path and outcomes? No. But we can find comfort in the promise that whatever we face our Heavenly Father will walk through it with us, lift us up when we fall, forgive us where we fail, and give us a peace and fulfillment beyond our greatest expectation. Does it sound too utopian? How can we even grasp all these promises? Well, He gives us a good place start in 1 Peter chapter 5: “Be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. The God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.” . So however your day, week, or year (we all know about that one 🙋🏻‍♂️) has been going, be sure to never ever forget: your life still matters; your past doesn’t have to dictate your future; you’re loved to infinity by your Creator and He still wants to do amazing things in and through YOU. Believe that. Talk to Him about it. Trust that He cares. He does. Just a few Sunday thoughts 🙂 Have a blessed week 🤍"
  10. Wasn't there a 19K&C clip of Josh referring to Jill as the snitch? It takes on a whole new meaning considering that that episode presumably aired before all of his issues hit the fan.
  11. Count me as one who also caught on to the "not so clueless" reference when Kristy was talking about Alicia Silverstone. As much as I read all the books when I was a kid, I guess I never really caught on to the first names of the adults, other than Richard and Sharon, and of course, Watson. Watson is a very memorable name. But never knew Kristy's mother's first name or the first names of Claudia's or Stacey's parents.
  12. What is with all the "us" in all of these IG posts? I also saw this with JD and Abbie and I believe Joy and/or Carlin. There's no capitalization, punctuation, or even a hashtag. I think they're all trying to do lowercase abbreviation of the United States but it just looks like they wrote the word that means the opposite of "them," if you get my drift.
  13. Xennial here - I haven't watched the show, but I was BSC (Bat Shit Crazy) over BSC (Baby-Sitters Club). I read the books, watched the early 90s TV show, and watched the movie. I was in elementary when the first books were published. Oh, and I also read the Sweet Valley series. My favorites were SVH and SVU.
  14. With this family, it's basically the same thing.
