Michelle Duggar Delivers Baby Girl!

So the Duggar family now has 18 children, 10 boys and 8 girls. Michelle Duggar delivered a baby girl by cesarean section on Thursday. And it sounds like the Duggars may not be done just yet. Michelle Duggar's husband, Jim Bob Duggar, said he and his wife "would love to have more."

I cannot imagine having 18 children. I cannot imagine being pregnant 18 times. I know there are conflicting opinions among people with many thinking it's wrong to have so many babies, while others believe it is fine as long as they are taken care of. I guess that is the problem I have. Do all these kids really get the attention and time they should from their parents? I am sure they get enough to eat, have enough clothes, always have someone to play with and talk to, but what about one on one time with mom and dad?

The Duggars seem to have it all together, and I am not in their shoes and should not judge (but we all have our "thoughts and opinions" I'm sure!). I think about growing up with my siblings--there are six of us in all- and I really did love having all my brothers and my sister. But would I have loved having 17 siblings? I don't know.

Anyway, just my rambling thoughts this morning. I really do wish the Duggar family all the best. They certainly sound very happy and feel very blessed. As proud dad Jim Bob Duggar told reporters,their new baby daughter, named Jordyn-Grace Makiya Duggar, is "The ultimate Christmas gift from God."

Welcome little Jordyn (I love that name!) and Merry Christmas Duggar Family!

I love the Duggar's show on TLC. I watch it everytime they have a new episode. I also have watch every hour special they had.

The only thing that bothers me is when they say it is God's will. Are they telling me it is God's will that others can not have children, what about people who miscarry. It is a sore spot with me.

I have said this before, I really like your blog. A week ago you had a post about a button wreath. I plan on making that project.

Sorry for the long comment.

I don't know....I'm happy that they are thrilled with so many children....but sometimes I wonder how much of it is Gods will...and how much is just their will....Plus when you have all the older children there to take care of the little ones...sure it's easier...If they had to do it all themselves...and their older ones...said forget it...I'm going out with my friends....totally different story....(sorry mine is long too...)....
