I agree. And how about the older kids going to El Salvador and doing what they were doing so selflessly. They're amazing! I'm not so sure I could have done something like that as a teen. I was more self-absorbed than that. I did stuff for church occasionally but nothing like what they do and they always have smiles on their faces and truly seem to enjoy what they are doing.

1p 6oz is impossible for me to comprehend how tiny that is. I am thankful that medical science has come so far that they can save babies that tiny. I am praying that she makes it thourgh without any complications and is home before her due date.

I know! I think it was the first time I actually liked him. Now I am going to try and be more open-minded when I watch his part of the show... maybe he is so (can't think of the right word so we will just have to use this one) pushy and salesman-like because he has had to adapt to that role to be the big brother and then to provide for his new family.

I'm only halfway through the episode on my DVR, but I have to say..... those short snippets they show going into- and out-of the commercial breaks, where the family is posed to look like a picture and they all rotate their heads from one side to the other in unison..... CREEPY!!! Every time it came on I did a double take because it just looked so strange to me!!!

I have to admit, I like the credits for the older season better.

I loved this episode! It was nice to see Jim-Bob caring so much about his wife (although I would smack my husband if he hovered so much lol), and it was also so sweet when Michelle finally got to see all her kids for the first time in so long. I really hope Josie continues to do okay.
I noticed that too, about Jill taking charge. I wondered if maybe Jana wasn't feeling well or just had some other obligation? I think they all went on the same flight to El Salvador, didn't they?

Also, I loved how sweet Jim Bob was too and Michelle seeing the kids. I said to DH, I bet she wondered if she might never see them again.

It does also make me wonder if this will be their last baby..but who knows?

I cried at that. Actually I cried through most of it, especially after the baby was born, I had a preemie (though not that little) and it was like little flashbacks. And when Jim Bob got choked up right before going into the OR with Michell... Okay, I'm tearing up again...

My dd1 loves the show. When we heard in Dec that Michelle had her beautiful baby early, we felt it hit home.

dd2 was 16 weeks early well, right on 24/25 weeks so this ENTIRE show was like reliving what we went thru.

We saw the special delivery special and I dvr'd it. DH said on Sunday, it might be a good idea to preview the episode first before we let dd see it. Wow, glad we did. We cried the entire show. Literally all the questions they asked, etc and Jim Bob saying what he did. It was like seeing DH that same day when My dd2 came early. So the grammys upstaged this episode thankfully and dd will watch the new episode tonight.

When all the kids got to crowd around the baby, seeing the older ones knowing what was happening was heart wrenching. Esp since the parents had to put on a happy face for them. I am totally in touch with that feeling.

Anyone catch tonight episode #2 Josie's first Christmas?
post #91 of 156
I DVRed it, and will watch it when my baby makes me get up and feed her at 7 am.

When all the kids got to see Josie for the first time and Jill almost immediately started crying I teared up big time. They are such a sweet family.

I loved that in the new intro, Michelle doesn't just rattle off the names, they instead linger on each kid's face. I also liked that in both of the new episodes they interviewed the older boys (besides Josh) more.

Seeing all the older kids in the home video when they where little was so neat. Amazing how the older kids looked so much like the younger ones do now.

I noticed in this ep. how both Joy-Anna and Johanna look so much older suddenly. The second oldest boy of the group just above Joy-Anna (can't come up w/ his name right now)looks like he's grown up a lot too. They sure are growing up quickly. I also liked how they had more interviews with some of the older boys and how the beginning has bigger longer pics of each of the kids.

I was sad we didn't get more info on how Josie was doing, but I know that was early days in her life. I'm looking forward to next week.

ETA His name is Josiah, I had to go look it up.

Oh man. I only watched the last 10 mins. but I cried the whole time! I turned it on just as the c/s was being done and the baby came out. And I had my big, healthy newborn sitting with me, it was so moving.

More later...kids want to use my computer!

Does anyone know how old the youngest baby (Jordyn?) is that was born before Josie? She looked soooo young when they showed her at home with the other kids. Were they born within a year of one another?

Jordyn was born in December of '08. I think she was also a few weeks early. I'm wanting to say she was born a few days after Christmas.

I think it was a week before Christmas. I remember one of the other kids (Josh maybe?) saying how Jordyn and Josie will be the same age for 8 days every year.

she will have 2 1 year olds for awhile every year.

Josie was born 8 days before Jordyn's 1st bday.
