November 28, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Jill Duggar and her husband Derick Dillard are expecting their first child in the spring, and Jill’s most recent picture shows how much her baby bump has grown.

The previous picture showing the visible effect of the pregnancy came on October 28 via Derick.

“Just about halfway now to meeting our son!” he said in the caption.

The new photo shows Jill, Derick, Derick’s mother, and Derick’s brother.

Unlike Jill’s large family, Derick’s has just two children.

“So thankful that the Lord has healed mom and we can have Thanksgiving dinner with her this year! #beyondblessed #family #bestmom,” Jill said in the caption.

The family is staying strong despite the recent passing of Derick’s grandmother.

Derick and Jill posted the news about five days ago.

“So grateful that Jill and I got to speak with my grandmother this week before she passed away earlier today,” Derick said.

“You will be greatly missed Grandma Vergie, but we’re looking forward to seeing you in Heaven before too long!”

Meanwhile, the Duggar clan came up with 19 things they are thankful for. 

Here are several of them:

–“We are thankful for the Ten Commandments that make us realize that we all have lied, stolen something, or sinned in some way and need God’s mercy.”

–“We are thankful for all of the examples in the Bible of people to model our lives after.”

–“We are thankful for all of the women and men who are are in the military who are fighting to protect our freedom, and we are thankful for those in the past who have even given their lives for our country.”

–“We are thankful we live America, a country that even though it is not perfect, it is a beacon of hope to everyone in the world!”
