Jessa, Ben and Their Brood: Making a (Diaper) Mountain out of a Mold House

Henry is adorable and by far the most photogenic of the kids.

Jessa's side profile in nearly every picture highlights her jaw, which is her least attractive feature. You'd think a professional photographer would've staged her better. 

I think the professional photographer hates her.

Yeah we never see pictures of just Lauren and Jessa hanging out so something is up. It would be shocking if there was a month without somebody being pregnant.

It's such an awkward angle I'm wondering if Jessa threw a fit that she wanted her hair to be the *STAR* and wound up looking deformed to get the right angle for her hair to flow freely.  🙄

Lol, and as if she has a major underbite!  And of course the hair is the star of the show. 
 

Those are actually sweet pics of bin and the boys though, I have to admit.

She looks like she smells something rancid. Which is kind of impressive because I'm assuming she has an impervious olfactory system to live in that dumpster of a house.

That’s what I meant!! 😂, hair and awkward pose aside she looks like she’s trying to force a smile! No real “holding” him on his face, so staged and disingenuous.

She looks to me like she's trying to look happy but she's just on the verge of pulling away violently and screaming "Ewwwwww!" 

But I really think Bin might be the more likely one to do that. 😁

That is just a bad shot of Jessa -- horrible position, horrible expression (not to mention her big ugly chin and jaw sticking out)-- that no one should ever have posted, in my opinion. Didn't anybody notice what a crap shot it is? And it was taken by a professional?

Did Jessa force the woman to fork that one over because she was so enamored with the look of her precious Godly-for-Gothard locks that she didn't notice that she, herself, looks awkward and absurd as hell? And as if she'd do anything to get away from Bin? Or what? 

They really are idiots.

In the weeds but with an apartment building in almost every shot.

In the shot of Jessa walking away with Ivy it looks like the a gremlin is coming for them.

Is she saving the Ivy pics for another day? Or was Ivy just not having it on photo day?

I guess another new trend is to have every picture be a playful "candid" shot.

And one more thing. Back in the day photographers wanted the back drop to be the background, not part of the picture. When they wanted the background to be more prominent, light a sunset, they posed the subjects differently. The white and wheat colored clothes and white blanket combined with the wheat is awful.

The Duggars certainly do have a knack for copying every trend, in a bottom shelf kind of way.

What is it with adults taking and displaying posed, staged kissing pictures? 

WTF is the impetus for that? 

Since I don't look at many social-media photos, I don't know whether this is largely exclusive to this sexually-disordered, supposedly modesty-worshipping crowd or whether it's a general trend at the moment. 

Either way, it says nothing complimentary about the participants, if you ask me. It's behavior I expect from 13-year-olds with newly raging hormones and no comprehension of the world, not grown-ass adults. 

When you show off your kissing like this, Bin Seewald, it just makes me assume that you're very seldom actually getting any. And that's probably not the impression you intend to give, is it? 

Next stop: faux-humping Jessa on the mini-golf course.

I'm not a huge SM follower either. In real life, pictures such as you describe are usually done for engagement, wedding and anniversary photos.

Jessa does seem to have a pressing need to prove to her followers that she and Ben are madly in love. So there's that.

As gross as that couch and pile of diapers were/are, I wonder how much of Jessa's hair is laying all over that house? How many times do the kids or Ben find it in their food? I can't imagine what the shower drain is like either. I'm pretty sure Ben would never snake it to get the hair out nor would Jessa have a hair catcher over the drain. I also think like others have said, that the house smells. I always think it probably smells like dirty feet.

There was that long ago episode where Jana came over to install "can lights".  I can't remember why but Jessa was scrounging under her bed.  The camera panned under there and oh my gosh, the dust bunnies.

Normal dust bunnies are small but when dust is mixed with four feet long hair, evidently they grow supersize.  They were enormous!

I agree, I don't know how they deal with constantly clogged drains and hair in their food.  It's so gross.

All the Duggars and Bates do their family pictures dressed in beige/oatmeal/wheat and maybe they are trying for a sepia look.  I also can't wait for that far to die.

Ivy's face only being in one picture was strange.

What stuck out to me besides the boring beige, was that Jessa was the only 1 in a color.  So your eye is drawn to her and the others are just props.  They are bad pictures...

I don't know exactly why, but I'm starting to get the idea that Jessa doesn't like Ivy very much. Maybe a third kid was just too much for her. Maybe she dislikes girls and greatly prefers boys (not surprising, considering she was raised in a rigid patriarchy). Maybe she's following her mother's parenting style. Michelle, a indifferent mother at best, seems to have had no problem scapegoating some of her kids (Jana, Josiah) and openly favoring others (Josh, Josie). I hope I'm wrong because, if that's the case, Ivy is in for a miserable ride.

Ivy was in two or three of the total photos that they posted.  In none did she look happy and in one, she was definitely not having it.  I think she was refusing to cooperate and hopefully they let her be with whoever the designated child minder was that day.

I just really have no need to see people kissing.  I'm sure they have some reason for these pictures, but I don't think they realize how they come off.  It's sort of braggy - look how we stay hot for each other!  Instead of looking that way, they look strangely passionless.  Jessa and Ben appear only slightly warmer than Jill and Derick who resemble Ken and Barbie with their faces pushed together.  It's childish, but in some ways they don't really grow up, they merely perform the parts given them. 

Also, this pictures are not at all good for professional pictures.  It looked like Ivy was having a bad day and that's maybe why she wasn't featured.

Wow, that is....not a good picture. Bin's face is an afterthought and Jessa looks like she's about to throw up or burst into tears. It seems like they used another "professional" photographer, i.e., a sweet friend who has a camera and thinks that makes her a pro. 

Has Jessa always had such a major underbite and I just never noticed? I know she's always had a strong chin and it gets more noticeable when she loses weight, but I never noticed the underbite until now.

I think Jessa's always had a bit of an underbite, but it looks like she clenched her jaw as Bin leaned in to kiss her, making it more pronounced than it actually is. If this was her attempt to prove she and Bin are hot and heavy, it failed miserably.

Yeah, because she ended up looking like a witch who's drawn this naive schmo in by pretending to kiss him but is about to pull violently away and call down a massive curse on his head while she cackles with demonic laughter.

If Jessa were an animal, she would be a bulldog. But less cute.

My husband and I have been together for 27 years. There is exactly one picture of us kissing in all that time, and it was taken at our wedding 18 years ago. These people are just weird, but I guess it comes with being in a fertility cult.

At least there weren't any pictures of Henry faceplanted in the weeds taking a nap, while Ivy climbs all over him. I think that that picture is all about Jessa's mop head of hair. I don't doubt for a second that she doesn't read here and see all the posts of how horrible her hair is. It's just always about Jessa and she has to be the stand out.

The Duggars continue to be enamored with curls. They did the same thing with Josie's barely-there hair. If Jessa tames Ivy's hair, she tames the little waves she has. If she lets it go wild, Jessa can pretend Ivy has curly hair.

"The Glory of Hair

"Gothard was not shy about what he found to be attractive on a woman’s head–long hair, soft curls. I heard girls reacting to that all the time. There were girls who couldn’t get their hair to hold a curl. One friend said to me, “Look how limp my hair is, and I had it all up in hot rollers just two hours ago!” Others couldn’t grow their hair long or just preferred it short. Still, they knew they weren’t living up to Gothard’s ideal. Some girls probably weren’t bothered at all. I heard more from the ones who were.

"Well I wanted to meet that ideal, and I did. I had plenty of insecurities, but my hair was my one glory, my one claim to beauty. I could make it do whatever I wanted. Add a little navy and white and some bright eyes, and I could achieve the perfect ATI (Advanced Training Institute) look. Yes, other girls were jealous of my hair. I know because they told me. As an ATI teenager, I couldn’t talk to boys and had to go skiing in a skirt, but at least I had great hair.

"After I graduated from high school, I got eighteen inches of hair chopped off. I just thought it would be fun to try what I had never done before. I came home and my brothers and dad were NOT happy. In fact, one of my brothers wouldn’t talk to me for several days. My dad looked at me and said, “Well, it will grow.” I hadn’t really known how important my hair was until I made that awful mistake. I repented and allowed my hair to grow again. In a year, I had my glorious hair back...."      

SPOILER: This woman eventually turned aside from this holy edict.

I remember reading this years ago. While I certainly think this factors into it, I also think Jessa likes curly hair, as we see with her boys.

Hee!  I still watch the Brady Bunch.

I have curly hair, but I wash it and you know, brush it.  Jessa wants the look without the work, it seems.  Some of you may remember the trend in men perming their hair (the Bradys did that!)  I can see Jessa perming her kids' hair, and it looking like a giant fuzz ball.
