Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard celebrated their little guy's first week by sharing a few photos on their family blog for “19 Kids and Counting” fans, which show baby Israel cuddling up to mom, hanging out with family and even rockin' some killer shades.
Israel David was born at 11:49 PM on April 6. He weighed 9 lbs., 10 ozs., and was 23 inches long, Jill shared on social.
The new parents thanked supporters on Instagram with a special message: “As Jill and I are settling in back at home after the birth of our firstborn, we wanted to thank everyone for the amazing support we've received from so many during this time. Your thoughts and prayers mean so much to us. We love you all! #blessed #grateful."
"When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world." -John 16:21”
Derick continued, “I feel like I can relate to this verse just a little better now after being with my wife in labor, but then experiencing the joy of our son! This life is difficult, but it's only for a moment, and joy comes in the morning. #nothomeyet #looktoJesus”
