She has the best personality, is easy going and loves to be held! She has her nights and days mixed up, but honestly, I love it!"

The proud mom continued, "Getting to spend that quiet, quality time with her through the night has been SO special! We are grateful for all the love and prayers that have come our way during this pregnancy."

Back in March, the Counting On stars first announced that they were expanding their family. In fact, Joy-Anna chronicled every step of the pregnancy in a YouTube video including the moment she told her husband she was expecting.

"I cannot believe it. If it's true, I'm shocked. I'm not as scared as I thought I'd be after miscarrying at 20 weeks," Joy-Anna shared at the time. "I thought I was going to be so nervous, but I'm not. I'm excited. It's crazy."

"We're super excited, nervous and thankful all at the same time," she added.
