Tonight’s episode of Jill & Jessa: Counting On is guaranteed to be absolutely adorable.
Don’t believe us? Just check out the sneak peek for the episode, which shows Jessa’s trip to Central America with her husband, Ben Seewald, to introduce their new baby, Spurgeon, to Jill and Derick Dillard.
The clip shows Jessa’s family arriving at the airport to be greeted by a smiling Derick, who gets to be the first to meet and hold little Spurgeon.
“We had seen Spurgeon on video conference, but this was my first time getting to meet him in person,” the visibly excited Derick tells the camera. “I got to pick him up, and he’s a solid guy, and he’s just really a chill baby, and he seems like a happy baby. Just a special time to get to hold him.”
Derick lifts little Spurgeon, 5 months at the time, into the air, as Spurgeon smiles down at him, and it is so dang cute. But the cutest part comes when Derick reminisces about when his own son, Israel, was a newborn.
“I guess it’s been 7 months since Israel was that size,” he says a little bit wistfully. Clearly, they grow up too fast.
On the way back to the house to meet up with Jill, Jessa and Ben dish on how Spurgeon handled his first international flight.
“He did pretty good — he slept on both flights the majority of the time,” Jessa says. “He was awake for just a little bit.”
Ben adds, “He just sleeps whenever. He doesn’t have a whole lot on his agenda for the day, usually.”
After the adorable meeting between Derick and Spurgeon, we can’t wait to see Jill’s reaction to meeting her nephew for the first time.
