Madi Nicole again? Does she do the photo shoots for free?

 Madison Nicole is Lauren Caldwell's friend and a friend of the Caldwell family. She was also on the Greece trip and made the "steeped in Orthodoxy' post. She took pictures of Lauren C to use as courtship ads and Kendra and Joe's baby announcement.

Garrett and Kendra are cute but seriously, why post so many pictures?  It's just the same few poses over and over again and again.

Y'all know I am not a Duggar or Duggar adjacent fan for all of the obvious reasons, but, Joe and Kendra, except for their beliefs, look adorable, in love, really, with attraction, and love for their child.  Remember when we were concerned about Garrett's uneven eyes?  Must have been the shot because they look fine now.  I think Kendra has domesticated the nearly feral Joe.  We had some family pictures taken and she took a zillion in many different poses, combination, etc.  I don't find that strange.  Maybe they left off some too.  If I didn't know who they were, I wouldn't snark at all.  But, well, I do...

While I wish she would let go of her belly, Kendra is adorable.  She kind of radiates a warm aura and Joe seems happy with her. 

In looking at this photo shoot, I realized there is something I hate even worse than the crotch clutching; the making of heart hands over the pubis.  

If Madi Nicole is such a great photographer, you'd think she would've told Joe to take the crapola out of his pocket before she took the photos.  Looks awful

I think Joe should fluff his swirl up and back a little. It would subtract years from him and look 100x better

I figure she does these photoshoots for "exposure". She's very lucky Kendra is photogenic. Her work isn't terrible though. A few photography classes would improve her portfolio immensely. 

That being said she's probably looking for a headship so photography classes are probably unnecessary.

I'd have to find it again but apparently so. What a way to pit your kids against each other for an inheritance, by encouraging to reproduce like rabbits.

I wouldn't even try if I were a Duggar (shudder!) - I bet Boob an MEchelle come with the TTH.

Jill always looks like she is wearing weeks old eyeliner.  Maybe that chore is done every other week.

I think that Jill always looks dirty -- she's looked better recently, but I just don't think bathing is a regular habit for her. I think she probably bathes every few days and washes her hair every couple of months (#boymom 🙂 hahaha). Both she and Jessa appear to do laundry occasionally without ever looking like they're wearing clean clothes. I doubt very seriously that Jill has a nightly routine of washing her face and removing her makeup (#boymom 🙂 lol), so you're probably right about the eyeliner.

Kendra, on the other hand, always looks clean to me -- and Garret and Joe look clean, fed, and happy, too. It's not the lifestyle I'd choose, but for someone who does, Kendra appears to be competent at the job.

Joe looks cleaner than he did when he lived at home. I agree, I despise the lifestyle but Kendra is competent at it.

Christina is totally pregnant. It's strange she got pregnant soon after Kendra's 2nd pregnancy, since all her kids are usually spaced out around 2 to 3 years. Her last baby was born last December, so this would mean she was pregnant again abouth 6 months later.

The fact that your kid is older than your youngest sibling isn't really brag worthy.

That is something that used to happen a lot more before the pill was invented and women started going to college.  I have a great-aunt who is younger than my aunt.  My best friend's dad is the same age as 2 of her cousins--Grandma and 2 of her daughters were all pregnant at the same time.

One of my best friends from grade school was the youngest of 8.  Her nephew was in our class and another nephew was 2 years older.  Her eldest sister was in her early 20's when my friend was born.  She generally found it embarrassing when people brought it up.  Her nephews did not call her 'Aunt So and So', BTW, except to tease her.

Kendra just doesn't realize that having a mother who is still having kids at the same time you are is not a special accomplishment.   It means that there are probably two generations of women in the family who started having babies way too young.

I sort of remember Kendra's mom being pregnant while they were all visiting the ocean together.  She looked miserable and could barely walk, even though she wasn't huge yet.  Kendra mentioned that her mom had terrible pregnancies with complications and lots of pain in her joints.  It's these quiverful people that upset me the most.  They don't know when to stop when the mother's own health is not good.

If Kendra's mom could help Kendra and Joe to change their views on quiverful, that would be a good thing.  But as long as pregnancy agrees with Kendra, she will keep on procreating rapidly, I imagine.

Her mom dying in childbirth would be an awful object lesson. Do these people really think that God expects them to die in obedience to his supposed rule of being fruitful and multiplying? I hate that this religion requires its followers to check their brains at the door.

I generally love how Kendra dresses but the "modesty" slip here is really unnecessary. Nothing is in danger of showing and this dress is not close to being short. So silly to add that slip which actually draws attention to where the dress is hitting her.

I agree. Joe used to have a bit of a paunch, but it looks like he's lost weight and gotten into better shape. It's interesting how he and Jinger seem to prefer the company of their in-laws, and they're also the two Duggars to have the biggest glow-ups post-marriage. The other siblings need to take note.

There's a registry for Kendra on Amazon. It looks like legitimate, but might be fake. Most of the items are like diapers and things which get used up fast. It says her due date is November 6th.

What is the purpose of an easily found amazon registry?  So the general public can send them gifts?  If it was for close family and friends, would it be so easy to look up?  Aren’t there privacy settings, or do they really want ‘fans’ buying them presents?

They probably get quite a few fans asking if they can send them gifts. It's safer to use an Amazon gift registry or wish list that allows the gift to be sent w/o giving out their home address to strangers or opening boxes with unknown contents.

You would think they would remember their childhood, especially the lack of parental attention and affection, and not want to recreate those issues for their own kids. All of them, except Jill, seem to be very into their children. Do they not understand that while love may multiply, time does not. There is no humanly way to give the same amount of attention to ten children that two or three children receive.

I don't think it's unusual for kids in the same family to have very different experiences. I think Joe may have bumped along just fine and not have any real issues with having a large family.

I don't think Josh wants a large family at all. He said as much, and he sure acts that way, but he has no power now, and he's just going to toe the party line.

I think Jill is in complete denial. I think she's terrified of any unhappiness she feels and just keeps pushing it away and insisting that she's HAPPY and wants a huge family just like MOTY.

I don't know about Jessa. She seems to like motherhood, but I think J'chelle did at first, too. I think she might be willing to stop having babies at some point if it becomes too much for her.

I don't think Jinger wants a large family, and I don't think she'll have one, either.

I think Joy is pretty shut down emotionally, and I don't think she looks back on life at the TTH with great fondness. I think she and Austin may drop out of the baby wars sooner than some of the others.

I think that Josiah is objectively miserable and I don't think he recalls his childhood with any fondness. He is, however, completely cowed by his parents at this point, and I don't think he sees himself as having any agency in making decisions for his own family.

I agree with this. I also think that Joy and Austin had a big wake-up call with their loss. I would imagine that they'd have been in favor of leaving the number of kids they had "up to God" (with possibly some NFP because Austin's upbringing would probably have made him less comfortable with a really large number of kids). I do think, though. that losing Annabel probably left them a bit shell-shocked and hesitant to get pregnant again right away. Though, in a way, I get the sense that it brought them closer and really strengthened their bond. I'd imagine there are more kids on the horizon for them, but that they will do their best to save pregnancies for when they really feel ready for them, so will, as you say, have fewer children and stop at a prudent number. And hopefully invest in some decent prenatal care.
