Jordyn Duggar Is Clearly The ‘Forgotten Duggar’
With 20 kids to look after, it is all too easy to forget a few. Duggar fans notice the â€œforgotten Duggar kidsâ€ tend to be overshadowed by their married older siblings – who tend to bring in the big bucks with their television show. However, it seems that the second-youngest child, Jordyn Duggar, has to compete with everyone â€“ including her younger sister Josie.
Jordyn and Josie are less than a year apart in age. Both of their birthdays are in December, about a week apart. But, instead of giving each girl equal amounts of attention, fans think that Jordyn is forgotten in favor of Josie. Josie Duggar was born prematurely, and had a scary first few days on earth. She is the â€œmiracle baby,â€ and is considered the Duggarâ€™s â€œfavoriteâ€ kid.
How is Jordyn Duggar supposed to compete with a miracle?! Luckily, Duggar fans never forget. They’ve got her covered.
On December 18th, fans egarly waited to see what the family would say for Jordynâ€™s birthday. But, turns out Michelle and Jim Bob decided that announcing Joe and Kendra’s pregnancy was more important than wishing Jordyn a happy birthday. New babies are apparently more important to them than the ones they already have.
â€œWouldn’t whoever announced Jendraâ€™s pregnancy have known that today is Jordynâ€™s birthday?â€ a fan wrote on the /r/CountingOn subreddit, reports InTouch.
â€œCommon sense would tell them to delay announcing it for 2 days till Wednesday or the end of the week. But I guess we can wish [Jordyn] if her family canâ€™t. Happy Birthday Jordyn!â€
The â€œJendraâ€ announcement sparked a number of fans rushing to the Duggar Family Official Facebook page to wish the little one a happy ninth birthday. Eventually, the family caught on, and by that evening, they had the decency to post about Jordyn – you know, right before the nine-year-old had to go to bed.
In generic Duggar fashion, the post started with calling her by a nickname, followed by a mention of how happy and â€œsmileyâ€ she is. Then it went into how she makes everyone smile and is so helpful. Then ended with a mention of Jesus and/or God.
Happy birthday to our sweet â€œDunny Bunnyâ€, Jordyn!!We canâ€™t believe you are already 9 years old today!!! You are such a…
In other words, a big fat helping of â€œHey, Jordyn, in our eyes, you just blend into the crowd like the rest of our kids.â€
