I know their house is pretty small, and I would hate to see them move, but I would really like to see Bonnie and Joel have a baby girl.

Yes, recent events with Ellie have inspired this revelation :D

Our family is complete, but I still get a little sad when I find out others are having more. If their house was bigger, I bet she and Joel would be tempted to try for one more. I get the impression that it's the only thing holding them back.

they have the money to extend the house, or move now. she will 100% have another baby. so will ruby.

I never get the impression that Ellie competes with Ruby. It's like she's off in her own world. She needs a new baby about as much as Ellie does!

Bonnie could handle it, well, at least as well as she handles the ones she has. Loved and nurtured emotionally, but with safety and education concerns. I think she would like another, but obviously decided it was time to get rid of her things because it just wasn't feasible with the setup they have. I would agree that they could expand if they hadn't just added the cold storage and new patio. That seems like the most likely place to expand. I would hate to see them move, unless it was to a place with property (real property!).

The petty part of me really hopes they do decide to have another though ;)

I can't believe they let Joel go back through security! That makes no sense to me. I guess Utah TSA agents are nicer than San Diego. Because there is no way you would get through security without a current boarding pass! And that clickbait was pretty awful, as was giving Lincoln control of a huge bag of Skittles.

Yea that was surprising. Maybe it was just after they'd walked through the exit door and they were more lenient? I would have just went to the airline's desk and asked if they could call to the gate.

She did make sure to make a comment that she wasn't letting Lincoln have the whole bag.

Oh god, Ruby is the last of the Griffiths sisters that should have another baby. I agree with another poster that said Bonnie would be the only one able to handle another child.

Way way way too many skittles, I wouldn't even be able to eat as many as I saw Lincoln eat.
If I owned that house, I would have bumped out the back of it a little and added a master bed/bath and made the kitchen a little larger. I just don't see them doing that. I do kind of wish Bonnie had another baby and would hope it's a girl just to see Ellie's face.

I really don't see Bonnie or Ruby having any more babies. I think Bonnie wants one, but knows she doesn't have the room and I definitely don't think they'll move. Or add on since the kitchen and basement renovations seemed to really stress Bonnie out. Now if she had 2 girls and 2 boys, I think she'd go for it, because Olivia and the other girl could share a room and the "baby room" would be free. I won't talk about Ruby too much, but I think she is so in over her head she won't have another one. Shari will marry early and start having babies just like Ruby did, and that will suffice Ruby's baby needs.

It seems like everyone has a similar sentiment about Ruby, and yet she doesn't seem to get a lot of hate watchers. Is she too big of a mess to watch?

I can't get past the desperation she seems to have. Makes me feel sorry for her more than anything.

I watch Ruby from time to time. I think she's done. I will say that I don't find Ruby to be lazy like Bonnie. She takes care of six kids with no husband at home to help and he's gone out of town for work a lot. She takes her kids places around town, and chauffeurs kids back and forth from activities every day and cooks dinner most nights. Even the youngest son who is younger than Cody is taking music lessons. Do I agree with her opinions on religion and stuff? No, but she seems to be a hard worker even if she is an airhead sometimes. I think her worst trait is probably embarrassing her kids with TMI stuff in vlogs. Still she has some respect from me. I would be in the nut house with 6 kids, and I can't remember the last time I saw her nap or go get a manicure.

Am I the only one who remembers how miserable Bonnie was pregnant? She complained nonstop by the end and then left her newborn to sleep for what? ten hours because she was tired and didn't want to get up to feed him then got upset when he fell off the growth chart. I don't think she could handle another unless Joel is still unemployed and there to help.

I find it so weird when people seriously think people should have more kids when they have like 3+. It's as if the prevalence of family Mormon vloggers have influenced people to think having such a huge family is a good thing. There are enough people in this world. Don't give these people any encouragement to extend their families even further lol

Definitely. There are women who want a lot of kids and either cant handle them or some can handle really well. I see too many ladies I grew up with who wanted a lot and cant handle shit and only a selected few who have the kids under good loving control. I admire Bonnie for how she goes about the kids. She seems to have a loving control over them, from what we see..

She's too awkward to watch imo. I watched one today and noticed she's started adding in dramatic music like you'd find on tv shows and it was too much. But good on her for growing her channel to what it is. It's clearly working for the kid audience.

Too cringey and awkward for me. I can't watch one vlog without getting secondhand embarrassment. I also don't care to see Eve misbehaving and the entire family encouraging it by laughing with her about it rather than disciplining her. Also I think she's learned that her channel is growing thanks to kids, so while her videos used to be more mature, over the past year she changed the vlogs to be more kid oriented. Not something many adults would care to watch in my opinion.

Why the hell are these Griffith women so melodramatic? Lincoln's week at Grandma's is Bonnie's vlog offering today and that Jennifer... is it me or are her tears a clever emotional manipulation tactic she's used on her daughters all these years and they (read: Bonnie) are following learned behavior. JFC, it's enough to give Shakespeare and his sonnets a run for his money.

This is the first time Lincoln has ever been filmed acting like an actual toddler and not an infant. Say what you may but these two are good grandparents minus the junk food. I was beginning to worry about Lincoln developmentally but this vlog put my mind at ease. He is so freaking cute!

^ He has a few Carter's outfits we saw him wear in HI. They prob they like the overalls because he can just wear a onesie at home and throw the overalls on when they go out.

That huge baby bottle of juice before bed. It's no wonder Bonnie feeds the children the way she does.

Jennifer's tone of voice really adds to her unbearableness. She almost either sounds partially deaf or at least tone deaf. Which I feel Ellie does too. I've just gotten used to Ellie's loud tone deaf sounding voice.

Lincoln is adorable. Especially at the family photo. And when he was doing the Bonnie scowl lol

Bonnie babies Lincoln so much because she knows he's the last baby, I have to wonder if she learned it from Jennifer. I wonder if she did the same to Ellie. I know the baby of the family tends to get treated a little differently than the older kids in most families, but they're really trying to keep him a baby as long as possible.
Those short shorts she puts on all the boys makes them look much younger too. It's cute on Lincoln at his age, but looks ridiculous on Boston and Cody.

I'm sure that's what it is. I know I baby my second because I know he's the last. I'm definitely not defending it! Just admitting to being guilty of it.

I really don't think Bonnie and Joel are done having babies. Now that Joel is 100% into youtube as their only source of income I can totally see them moving and having another. Joel seemed even more upset then Bonnie at the thought of Lincoln being their last, and with him home full time able to help, the finances to move somewhere bigger, plus the equity they surely have on their home I can totally see them moving once they see Jared and Ellie cash in on the new baby youtube money.

The difference between B&J having more vs E&J is that I get the impression that they enjoy their kids at all ages and not just infancy. Joel really seems to like telling them stories, and teaching them how to do things. Life didn't stop for the other kids when Lincoln came along. They didn't become invisible! Jared and Ellie are both far too wrapped up in themselves to ever be good parents. Watch any of their IG stories and it's amazing how often their house is quiet and it's just the two of them upstairs while the kids are in the basement. It would be crazy for B&J to have Lincoln playing alone in the basement, people would have a fit! With E&J it somehow seems normal because we are so used to it. But their house is a lot bigger and harder to hear what is going on!

But I agree, Joel is home for at least the indefinite future and another one would be possible. I get the impression they like their home, but I would love to see them buy a house with a little land. Something more private as well. Like C&K but less grand. They could fix it up and start over again. More vlog content and projects for Joel aren't a bad thing! I imagine their current home is paid for by now, so they could start investing in a new one. I would actually like to see this... not buying and building an ice palace. I would be surprised if B&J went that route.
