Jill Duggar Gives Update on 7-Month-Old Israel's 'New Tricks'

Jill & Derick DillardThings appear to be going pretty well for Jill Dillard and her family. Currently on a mission trip in Central America, the former 19 Kids and Counting star gave her fans an update on her baby boy, 7-month-old Israel. Needless to say, he's growing, and hitting a few milestones along the way.


"Israel has been busy this week showing us new tricks! Every day for the last three days he has learned something new!" Jill reveals on her family blog, The Dillards: Derick  & Jill.

According to Jill, little Israel is crawling, clapping, waving, and pulling himself up to stand. Jill and Derick's growing bundle of joy is even getting two teeth -- which likely makes for a few sleepless nights.

Aww, hand in there, guys!

Seeing as the Dillards are somewhere in Central America on a mission trip (they likely won't make it back to the U.S. until next summer), I think it's safe to assume Israel will also pick up some Spanish (Jill has a tutor) -- that's a huge plus. Yay for bilingualism!

Does anyone else feel like kids grow up too darn fast? It's almost like they sprout up in the blink of an eye. One minute, you're taking your baby home (or maybe you had a home birth), and the next, you're thinking about preschool.

Keep on documenting these milestones, Jill. You'll be thankful you have the memories to look back on in years to come.
