She's been suprisingly cute since birth.  Most babies look like plucked chickens for several months, but I think this one has out-cuted all her cousins under the age of 5.  And then there's poor Gideon......

*sigh* I did that one too. A college friend who lives cross country texted me some pictures of her wedding. Since she's not active on social media, I'd never seen her fiance. I only looked at the first couple and texted "How nice! I love the one of you and Tim's dad!" to which she responded with "???" when I told her which picture she texted "Uh, that's my husband." Face palm. I've decided to stick with generic sentiments ever since.

A lady at Olive Garden kept saying "she" when referring to my son.  After the second time I corrected her - not in a snotty way.  When she asked how old "she" was, I said "HE" is 10 months.  I was just surprised that she thought he was a girl.

My theory is that the tradition of putting tight bands around young girls' heads started when men theorized it might keep their brains from growing big enough to challenge the patriarchy. 

The little flowers and such are simply subterfuge. 

Welcome back! We missed you!

Hey!  I've missed your posts, @Churchhoney.  Good to "see" you.

As long as they don't hurt the babies' heads I don't mind the bows. I once complimented a couple on their adorable son only to be told "he" was a girl. Thankfully, they didn't take it personally, but I felt horrible about it. The bows help clueless people like me differentiate, lol.

When my daughter was probably close to a year old, I so remember taking her to the mall, and running into a good friend's mother.  I had dressed baby in blue, simply because I had the outfit handy (it was a shower gift, back before ultrasounds were routine.)  Friend's mom knew I'd had a girl, but had to say to baby, "why did your mommy dress you in blue?"  Maybe a bow on her head would have helped!  I was always afraid she'd yank it off and put it in her mouth.  LOL

Unpopular opinion here, probably, but I don't really see her as particularly cuter than the average baby. 

I don't either. She's cute but pretty much indistinguishable from any other two month-old.

The only good part of the knot thing on her head, is that it highlights her awesome chubby cheeks..

Is that a look of trepidation I see on Felicity's face?  I like it, as well as those chubby baby legs.

(I should say, I like that look on all babies, because it's so cute and I wonder what someone that tiny has to be worried about.  I don't like it when babies look worried for real!)

I wonder if Jinger was making weird noises or facial expressions to get the baby to look at the camera, and Felicity got captured in a wtf? pose.

One of my nephews has a very pretty face, always has. He's also very blond and has bright blue eyes. When he was about 10, he had long hair. He was spending the weekend with me and we went to dinner. The waitress asked me was "she" was having. "He" will have, and then she continued to ask me a second time what sides "she" would have with "her" meal. Yeah, waitress at Denny's didn't get a tip that day. We also went shopping and more than one person we encountered in stores thought he was a girl. He was apparently super pretty that day! LOL! He frequently was referred to as she back then, but that day was over the top. He's 20 now, still same pretty face and eyes, but the short hair and beard is helping! 

Little Miss Felicity is just adorable and just looks so content in every picture I've seen of her. There's a difference between a smiling baby and a content baby. Jessa's babies usually looked content too, as does Giddy. Jill's never did. The Dillard boys have looked anxious and on edge from day one. Even when they are smiling, there's a look of nerves in their eyes. Can't say on Joe's baby or the M kids, I haven't seen enough pics of them.

I wonder if Jinger follows Audrey, a.k.a. The Snooty Roloff (at least that's what I call her).  She loves those knot things for her daughter who just turned a year old.  I have to give JinJer props-Felicity is much cuter than Ember.

The knot things must be a thing now. I had dinner with a friend tonight and she was showing me a picture of her cousin's daughter, who was quite adorable, and she was wearing a knot sort of thing on her head. I think she's about 5 months old.

Jinger looks great. Don't throw tomatoes at me, but I still think Felicity looks like a cuter version of Josie.

Josie and Jinger (as well as one of the middle boys who's name I can't be bothered to remember) look a lot a like, since they both take after Michelle, so it makes sense that Felicity looks like Josie.

Did Jinger get her GED?  Getting a degree from a real college would expand her horizons so much, and I suspect it would help her feel more comfortable with Jeremy's family and friends.  Thankfully, preacher's spouses are no longer expected to work free for the church almost full-time, but there is still some expectation that they will help with Sunday School, etc.  Even an associate's degree in early childhood development, art, music, etc. would be a plus for Jinger and for Jeremy.  

There are some very good online programs if she wants to stay home with the baby.  Although it would be great if she could attend some live classes, too.  

I just never want to see Jinger sitting in a classroom with Jeremy because she does not have her own life.  The whole Jill as study buddy story creeped me out.

I think she looks like a little gnome. And no I'm not just being a troll. I wonder if her perceived cuteness is because Jinger is currently the only likeable Duggar. There I said it...

I wonder if Felicity had a baptism or dedication this week, and that's why the Vuolos were in town. 

If so, it would be a dedication, not a baptism. Baptizing babies is a big no-no in their churches.

Someone in the comments noted that Jingle's dress is from Brooks Brothers. I'm assuming she got it on sale or snagged it at the outlet mall, but my, my! Looks like her thrift store days are over. I can't imagine the Laredo Goodwill is teeming with designer duds.

It seems they go to this one: https://www.instagram.com/brooksbrothers.laredo/

And it was Jinger herself who replied she got it at Brooks Bros ? Jeremy's high-end sartorial taste is certainly rubbing off on her. She was previously Instagrammed in a blouse from there also. That post had the store tagged, so maybe they got the merch in exchange for advertising?

When they first moved to Laredo, I looked it up on google maps, and they have a sizeable Tanger outlet! They had a Nike there. Remember when Jing was dressed in head to toe Nike? I suspect Jeremy quite frequently can be found at the Tanger outlet. If it's anything like the ones in NC, they really do have some nice clothes!

I don’t know if Jinger has her GED. They used to post it when one of them “graduated”, but that was a long time ago.

Jinger had a great opportunity to further her education since she waited a year after marriage to get pregnant, but she didn’t do so. From what we’ve seen, she didn’t do much without Jeremy at her side.

Personally, I think Jeremy likes her the way she is because then he can spew his hatred and most of it will go over way her head. The same goes for Derick. He likes his wife the way she is because most of the time she doesn’t get it. 

Jeremy is a just a prettier version of Derick.

Those outlets are amazing.  I’ve gotten North Face jackets for $60, discounted from $350.  You have to shop smart and buy off season, and be okay one season behind the trends.  You can get designer brands for just a lil more than a thrift shop.  Jinger also follows Brooks Brothers on IG, so I assume she likes their aesthetic and that could also explain why she looks so put together now.  She follows other brands and bloggers for inspiration.

Jinger has her GED, but Jessa does not.  If you remember, Jessa was put in charge of the home school studies when she lived at the Duggar compound.  Other than Jinger, no sibling younger than Jessa ever passed the GED test. Jana didn't pass the test either, but John David did.

Wow, I didn’t know that about Jana and the younger ones. What a shame. Their haphazard homeschooling did them no favors, and their stupid parents stifled any ambition and natural curiosity that they might have had. 

They are all doomed to a life of mediocrity, and they’re too dumb to notice.

Jeremy's parents really seem to be enjoying that first grandbaby.  It's cute.  I loved the pic with Grandpa.  Very sweet!

On the GED subject, I thought Jessa was the one with the GED, which was why she was able to take over homefooling.  I don't remember hearing that Jinger took the GED.  I feel for those kids.  I still wonder why Josh didn't try to improve his education.  He certainly could have taken the GED and gone on to college.  I know he is persona non grata, but it has to hurt to see Derwood going to law school, which was supposedly his dream.  I guess he's too lazy to do it because I would think with his lack of income, he could get some funding.  Of course, their stupid teachings that you can't take on debt are yet another way they hold their kids back and keep them from becoming educated.  They probably have no idea about grants and student loans that would allow them to better themselves.  JimBoob and MEschelle are just horrible!!!

I really wish Josh would write that tell all book.  It needs to come from one of the older kids like him who lived through the hungry days while daddy spend bucket loads of money on a vanity campaign and left them with their mother who was apparently having a nervous breakdown.

I liked your post but I had to quote this part- I don’t want the tell all book from Josh. Because even though what he might be saying is true (I mean it is, about the closed quarters etc), he repeated molested and terrorized his little sisters and THEN very smugly and arrogantly stood by while they had to clean his dirty underwear, cook his meals and made jokes about their first kiss and incest in Arkansas. 

He can just be quiet. I wouldn’t want him to profit from his parents poor choices. If I actually thought he’d spend it on The M kids that would be one thing but it would probably go to sex workers and porn.

It's sad, because it's less than mediocrity. When I think of someone mediocre, they usually have a high school education and a job, just not a great one. Women who are functionally literate and homemakers who don't cook or clean would fall far below mediocre IMO!

I can't find any real basis as to who as their GED and who doesn't. Fundiewiki has them all taking the test, but doesn't mention pass or fail. I couldn't find any other sources that say who has a GED and who doesn't.
