40 Photos Of Duggar Moms & Their Kids Show The Big Family Keeps Counting On
The family behind TLC's 19 Kids & Counting and Counting On have become famous for doing just that — counting on. And while the super-sized family has added several members to their brood over the years, the many photos of Duggar moms hanging out with their kids show just how much family means to them.
Over the years, the older Duggar siblings have gone on to get married and start families of their own. In fact, every Duggar sibling who is married has children. And while nothing can truly prepare you for the experience of becoming a parent, it's likely the Duggar kids have learned a whole lot from their own mother.
In a 2014 post on the Duggar Family Blog, Michelle Duggar shared her advice for new moms. "I always tell new mamas to cherish the moments that they have with the little one because babies sleep a lot those first two to three months," she wrote. "They pretty much eat and sleep and they're not awake for a whole lot of time. Take a lot of pictures and make a lot of sweet memories of that special time."
Well, they've certainly followed her advice on the pictures. Here's a glimpse at how Michelle, Jinger, Jessa, Jill, Joy-Anna, and more Duggar moms have captured these moments.

"Even though our sweet child is no longer with us, it is such a comfort to know that one day we will get to see our baby in Heaven!" the couple wrote on Instagram. "To the ones who have gone through this, I know your pain. It is real and terrible."
Since Bella's arrival, it looks like Lauren can't stop smiling over her sweet baby girl. "I remember the days when this little girl was a dream and a wish and now she's here," she wrote in a March Instagram post. "God has truly blessed us above and beyond with this sweet little angel."
"Today this little girl just wants to be held and snuggled in Mommy's arms. It's so easy to get caught up in all the things we need to get checked off the list. She reminds me that there are some days we just need to slow down and snuggle."
