In the video, John says he loves seeing Abbie as a mom. And, Abbie says that she really likes that she is able to comfort her baby girl no matter what, even if she’s crying or fidgety. She says that her perspective has changed since becoming a mom and that she’s learned everything isn’t about her. It’s more about Grace.
Then, Abbie says, “[I’ve] got a little baby girl that depends on me and gets me up in the middle of the night. But it’s really neat getting to spend all the time with her and just get to take care of her. I love it.”
John adds that Grace is learning to sleep anywhere at any time. Since his family is big with his 18 siblings, their spouses, and children, family events aren’t quiet. He says that he and Abbie wanted Grace to be flexible so she would be able to nap at any time, even if they’re out and about.
John also gets real about diaper changes. He says that Grace blows out way more diapers than he expected. He assumed most diapers wouldn’t blow out. The new dad says, “She started early on blowing them out.” He and Abbie laugh about this in the video.
Will John and Abbie have more kids?
It’s too soon to know what John and Abbie’s plans are when it comes to kids. Because they’re in the Duggar family, fans assume they will have a large family. But, not all signs are pointing that way. During Abbie’s pregnancy, she had Hyperemesis Gravidarum. She even had to take trips to the ER for this. So, that part of her pregnancy wasn’t enjoyable. That may not stop her from having more children though.
In addition, John and Abbie got married later than the rest of the grown Duggar kids have so far. John is 30 years old and Abbie is 28 years old now. So, they do have less time to grow their family. For this reason, it’s assumed that they will have considerably less children than the rest of their siblings and in-laws.
Abbie was a nurse before she married John too. She has said that she would like to go back to work, so that may interfere with how many children she has. No matter how many kids John and Abbie have, Duggar fans adore them. They are happy to know that the parents are adjusting well to life with Grace, and they look forward to more updates soon.
