JinJer and Felicity 42: American Girl (grand)Duggar


Recommended Posts

Georgiana

Jinger and Jeremy have welcomed 8lb 3oz Felicity Nicole on July 19th, in some sort of medical or birthing center from the looks of it, and are now embarking on a campaign of hashtag relatable parenting.   FJ talks childhood dolls (not the creepy kind) and sleep with infants.

I don’t see how it helps or contributes to this forum’s mission at all to make totally hyperbolic statements that just look ludicrous to an outside observer, someone who’s maybe curious about fundamen

I’m just going to say it. I love these pictures. The pictures are beautiful (even the quality is great!), Felicity is adorable, Jinger looks amazing, and even Jeremy, Jessa, and Michelle look great. I

As a number of people have pointed out, though, leaving for most people is a slow process of baby steps rather than a sudden break.  And young evangelicals (Millennial and increasingly Gen Z age)

Congratulations Jeremy, you're a parent. What did you think the baby was going to do? Sit down and discuss books with you while drinking coffee? 

Why not? That's similar to what his brother in law, Derick expects. He seems to think that children, especially Izzy, should emerge be from the womb as fully grown adults in baby bodies.

Wait, you mean to tell me that children don't come out of the womb as adults who have an immediate need to serve the Lord, are fully capable of all self care, a full time job with great pay and benefits/owns a business, can take part is "deep" discussions, and is ready to take part in missoncations- just tiny for a temporary amount of time?

 

Well...everything I've come to know about children is a lie. :wtsf:

Jeremy is too savvy to post controversial or offending things Though He forgot himself when voiced his opinion  of Catholics but that is the real him. He is selling himself and Jinger as  modern, fun  and Cool conservative Christians  But  truth will out again sooner or later.

I think most new parents are shocked in those first few weeks!

Yes! Especially with the first baby. Those first months with baby #1 were a wild (but fun) ride.

I was a Samantha girl too. Although my real obsession was Uncle Gard’s Cornelia. Something about her descriptive phrase,”An old fashioned beauty who had new fangled ideas” always pleased me.

My nephew who is 15 months old was up 3 times last night. I watch him on a regular basis and it’s a lot of work caring for a little one. 

 

Im pretty sure I will only be having one. I can’t imagine juggling 2.

Except Derick doesn't even want that.  He just wants those poor little guys to sit silently, without moving, while he talks at them.  Look at how he ignored Israel during the "book reading time" when Sam wanted to get off Derick's lap and Derick was physically holding him down to keep him from leaving?  If Jill weren't dumb as a rock, I honestly would've thought it was a passive-aggressive jab at Derick's incompetent parenting.  

I don't find Jeremy's posts offensive.  Unlike other members of that family, at least he's trying to portray himself as an appropriately involved parent who is happy to have a child.

Yes! I liked Cornelia a lot! Definitely not fundie approved however.

I legit thought Jeremy's "To Sleep" thing was him trying to poetically bid farewell to a recently departed and beloved friend or family member, and I was really confused for a while.

Which is exactly what happened. :giggle: I don't think people value sleep enough before they don't get enough anymore.

I don't get the Jeremy hate. He tried to be funny about experiencing the reality of being a parent. It happens to all people who become parents. He showed a sense of humor. What's the big deal. 

I am much more offended by other things this family does. 

I thought it was a bit of a lame joke, but it was also harmless. I also don’t like Jeremy at all though, so I freely admit my opinion about Jeremy and his jokes is very colored. :pb_lol:

Heres hoping he turns out to be a decent father. Felicity deserves at least that much. I’d also hope that having a child teaches him to be more empathetic and accepting of others, but that’s likely pushing my luck. So I’ll just settle for decent father who accepts his daughter for who she is.

The evil side of me wants to see Jeremy do a post in a couple of years based on Go the F*ck to Sleep. I know it won't happen, but it's fun to think about.

I had Josefina, Molly, and a girl of today doll to look like me.  Except when I got Molly, it turned out she had the exact same hair color, eye color, and features as my girl of today.

My mom ended up getting two of my adult sisters their own historical AG dolls, because they had always wanted them but were adults by the time they came out.  I think one of them has Kirsten, I'm not sure about the other.

A bunch new pictures and a few new details about the birth and such: https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/pictures/jinger-duggar-jeremy-vuolo-share-daughter-felicitys-first-days-at-home/

Apparently Felicity was born in San Antonio. Jinger thinks she looks like Jeremy (I agree). Their reasoning behind the name Felicity:

Quote

The new baby’s moniker, says Jinger, “just felt right.” She and Jeremy “loved the name Felicity from the moment we thought of it several months ago,” she notes. The Counting On star explains, “The name itself means intense happiness or supreme joy. It was also the name of a young Christian girl long ago who valiantly stood strong for her faith.”

I'm glad that Jinger has help in Jessa and Michelle. Good to have people to ask questions to in the first days with a new baby. Michelle does love newborns. There's a lot going on in that family right now I wonder how many 2019 pregnancies there will be?

      Happy Shavuot to all those who celebrate! I have no idea why, but for some reason God commands us to eat ice cream. Well, dairy. So eat cheese! Eat pizza! Eat ice cream! Eat cheesecake! It has no calories because God commands us to do so!

      I know it’s just a beauty contest but this is the 4th time Jamaica was snubbed in favour of 5 contestants who were clones (with the exception of Peru) 
      Still can’t believe Mexico won. Even Olivia Culpo was looking at the results confused😂
      Shoutout to Haiti, Canada, Thailand and Myanmar who were also snubbed.

      I've somehow invested in this year's Miss Universe pageant. After watching the prelims my favorites are: 
      1. Jamaica (naturally lol but she's doing well)
      2. Haiti (love her energy) 
      3. Great Britain 
      4. Bahamas 
      5. Canada (a beauty! absolutely stunning!)
      6. Japan (adorable) 
      7. Cameroon (also adorable w/ an amazing costume) 
      8. Myanmar (seems sweet)
      9. Vietnam 
      10. Thailand 
      11. USA (I'm rooting for everybody black lol) 
      Not a fan of these but I think they'll place: South Africa, Mexico, Columbia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Peru, Australia, Denmark, Ireland, Dom Rep. 
      If they make Zozi (the current Ms. Universe) give the crown to a white girl from Pretoria, I will scream.

      I just made a lovely discovery! Type a colon, then a ) without any spaces. Then type a space. 
          
      I am ridiculously happy to discover this! (I also have a nagging feeling that I should have figured this out sooner...)

      Aren't I too old to forget to eat lunch?  
      So now....do eat a late salad and be cranky before bed because I want dinner and it's too late to eat or....do I tough out the afternoon cranky at my desk and eat dinner?  
      The dilemma is real.

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.
