Well Josie doesn't lie when she says her fashion style is "ugly".

That really is an awful outfit. You’d think someone would help her pick out her clothes for these special occasions.

What has happened to Anna's face? It's kind of wonky and if they didn't say who she was I wouldn't have recognized her.

I've been thinking that the last year or so. But, thanks for confirming it's her, I didn't know.

They all have such unfortunate choices in shoes.

Jenni and Jordyn have been over the Duggar life since they were born. 

I hope they are the ones that break away from this marriage-babies lifestyle

 

Jessa also has big boobs, probably because nursing. But who knows

What are you talking about?  Look at how simply Michelle is dressed.  Josie is decked to the nines in mama's view.  No doubt Josie is being led to believe that she's very privileged to be dressed like a circus bear from days of old.

Compared to how she looked at the end of Giddy’s pregnancy, Joy looks fabulous. I wonder if the fact that she’s (apparently) been making regular visits to an OB has helped her have a much healthier and happier pregnancy. She’s just glowing.

How old is Giddy? His body always looks so tense. Toes and hands squeezed tightly and jaw tightly clamped.

I love how they hid Jill and her sluttish shorts behind Jenni and Jordyn's dresses. 

First thing I noticed. Too bad, because I was looking forward to some more Jana photo shopping a skirt on another hussy wearing shorts.

In that picture he's all Boob and I'm usually really bad at telling who a kid looks like.

At some angles Giddy looks like Spurge in the face, only with straight blonde hair rather than curly brown hair. 

I agree! I think Giddy and Spur both look like JimBob.

Of all the Duggar spawn, I do think Joy looks the happiest. Hopefully she does not ruin her life by having eleventy-seven kids.

And that they haven't already started ruining that precious Giddy's life with blanket training.

Blanket training usually starts as soon as the baby can crawl, so if they're using that type of discipline it's already been going on for a while.

 Speaking of Meredith, her expression on the last pic is priceless.

Can you blame her? She wearing about 8 vintage aprons sewn together. She contemplating her life of servitude.

Who is on the right , next to Anna? Is it her first MSlave? If so, she's beginning to smuggar (verb).

Yay a white rug in a toddler/infant room. What could possibly go wrong there?

So basically all Aunt Jana and Jessa did was buy a rug that she hated, move a mattress and hang a picture of a cow.

That's fundies for you.  Based on fundie/fundie-lite people I know, many of them like to keep decor neutral in nurseries. That's so the decor works for 10 kids regardless of the sex of the kids. If the next baby is a boy,  they don't want their sons in a pink room.

Neutral is also really popular in America, but a lot of people like colors in nurseries.

That was a whole lot of fussing and ultimately doing nothing to the room except to a add a plant and a random cow picture.  Why doesn't the room have a rocking chair? Even I, childfree heathen, know that a nursery needs a rocking chair.

Completely unrelated note - why are Gideon's diapers always drooping down to his knees?  Surely that's not how they are supposed to fit?

The whole room is still really beige.

In a large room, I use an area rug on top of carpet to tie in all the furniture and make the room look cozy.  It also helps with the wear and tear issues of a heavily used room.

However, despite living in America's Dairyland,  there are no cows in my home.

Color is more stimulating to babies’ brains, which fundies would never desire. Neutral maybe all the rage but it’s so dull ,not even pops of color.

That wasn't a nursery reveal. It was 10 minutes of Jessa ordering Jana around and hanging one picture on the wall.

His hands/fingers have always looked strange/moved strangely IMO.  Maybe it’s something that he inherited from his father’s side of the family, because I’ve never noticed it on the Duggar side.

A rug on carpet? Yeah it's a thing. Why wouldn't it be? 

I love the doors in her house. I was expecting some more pink or something. I went pink crazy with my twins.

I continue to think Jana is the best looking of the sisters and IMO the only way she's still single is that 1) Jim Bob rejected every offer for her in order to keep her at home 2) She rejected every offer in order to avoid popping out 511234 kids 3) She's not heterosexual.

The bond between Austin and Gideon is palpable.  Every time they're together they both seem to completely enjoy being together.  That's a great sign to me.

Yep.  My niece was born at 24 weeks weighing in at a pound.  She's 8 1/2 now and is still smaller than all the kids in her class.

I'm not up to date on nurseries, but I agree with you I can't believe there isn't a rocking chair considering now she'll have 2 little ones.  

I tried out plenty of them when my son was born. I figured it better be comfortable because it was going to get plenty of use and it did.  My mother was my son's daycare & she even treated herself to a new one as well for the same reason.  Maybe times have changed.  

Does Gideon even own any shorts for the summer?  It seems he is mostly shown wearing just a shirt and his droopy drawers. I think it's laziness on Joy's part but how difficult is it to put a pair of shorts on him?

Yep. The t-shirt only thing is the sign of a lazy ass mom. His droopy diapers may be the brand she’s using. Some keep their shape better than others when wet.

As for the boring nursery, they’ve all been boring AF.  That goes for Jessa, Kendra, Lauren, Anna, and especially Jinger. If you look at nurseries on Pinterest, they all look the same. Exactly the same 🙄That same stupid banana plant (like who TF think that dust catcher/mold maker is a good idea in a nursery), the same round mirror over the changing table and a big neutral rug in the middle of the room.  I’d like to think the last thing I’d want to do when changing a baby at 3 AM is stare at my sleep-deprived self in a mirror.  I also never see anyone hang them with those hotel quality hooks and it seems like a safety issue to me.

He's wearing khaki shorts in the tomato picture at the top of this page, and navy blue ones in the video where Joy brings him to the TTH while she goes to her doctor's appointment. Maybe he only gets fully dressed if he's going somewhere.

Very sad. 

Why does the baby have to share a room with Gideon ? They have plenty of bedrooms. Also, what child wants to wake up in the middle of the night and see a cow? I see nightmares in the kids future.

Maybe Joy can get Jilly to reposition the baby. Sure, that'll work.

So seems like another section for her, glad she's seeing a real provider. Or was Giddy a section? Can't remember.

He was.  She labored at home for hours with a "midwife" who couldn't figure out the baby wasn't positioned properly and then had a ride to the hospital when they finally figured it out.
