They grow up so fast! Henry Seewald — the son of Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald — turned 7 months old, and in honor of the big milestone, his proud mama took to Instagram to share a sweet photo. Watch the video below for the pic!
Last month, the Duggar Family Blog updated fans on his progress and wrote, “By 11 weeks, Henry had nearly doubled his birth weight of 8 lbs, 11oz, something that many babies don’t do until around six months. Now, he weighs in at just under 20 lbs. The average range for baby boys his age starts at 16 lbs, so he’s at the top of the curve.”
In August, Internet trolls came out in full force when Henry’s brother, Spurgeon, 22 months, was seen drinking from a bottle. “How old is he again?” One person wrote. “Always took a bottle away first birthday.” Another unwarranted commenter chimed in, “I always took the bottle away at 12 or 13 months on my kids. How old is he now??” Apparently, everyone but Jessa is an expert!

Photo repost from @jeremy_vuolo! How's this for a little *SeeThroughSaturday*! 💙 That's my boy! Yes, he's 22 months old. Yes, he drinks water from a sippy cup, and yes, he still prefers to drink much of his milk/kefir from his bottle–especially before nap/bedtime. (TBH, I wish he wouldn't have weaned himself early, and would've bf till 2. There, I said it.🙈) . So there ya have it. If you are experiencing anxiety over this, please share all your wisdom and perfect parenting advice in the comments section below. 😇
Jessa was also bullied online back in April when a fan attacked her post-baby fashion sense. “I used to think Jessa dressed the best of all of them but ever since she started having babies there are more and more pictures of her dressing more like [her sister] Jill does. And I know after you have kids you want to wear more comfortable clothes (I have two littles so trust me I know) but her style changed dramatically,” they wrote on the Free Jinger forum. The poor girl can’t catch a break! Luckily, she hasn’t received any criticism for her photo of Henry. Yet.
