The 'New' Bates Family

Tori Bates, Carlin Bates, Josie Bates triple date

"It takes Tori, Carlin, and Josie about, probably two years to get ready." 
-Callie Bates

"They have to be perfect, and if one person wears a really, really good dress, they’re like, 'I can’t wear this, I’ll be ashamed!'"
-Addallee Bates

Callie's statement might be a bit of an exaggeration, but she's certainly not completely wrong. According to Zach, in the old days when eight Bates shared one bathroom, things were very different than they are now, with the"new family" having multiple bathrooms.

In this web exclusive clip from last night's episode, Tori, Carlin, and Josie prove Zach's point to be true, as they help each other get ready for their triple date.

Bates Daddy/Daughter Dinner

"I don't want to be 20 because then you have to go to college, and that's no fun. And you have to work, and there's no time to play."
-Ellie Bates

Last week, we shared a Great Bates Moment video of Gil Bates' and Josie Bates' father/daughter tennis date. Well, with 10 daughters, there's always plenty of daddy/daughter fun to be had! In this Great Bates clip, watch footage from Gil's dinner with the three youngest girls, Addallee Bates, Ellie Bates, and Callie Bates. These gals sure do adore their daddy!

Jackson and Addee's Double Birthday

 Jackson Bates and Addallee Bates

It's another double Bates birthday! Just two weeks after Trace Bates and Jeb Bates celebrated their birthdays on February 1st, Jackson Bates and Addallee Bates are also turning one year older. Jackson is 15, while Addallee is 11.

As the 12th of 19 children, Jackson is often referred to as Zach's twin. The family claims the two look and act alike, and they both enjoy learning about history and reading books. Jackson is also talented at drawing.

Addallee is #15 in the Bates family lineup and has two brothers and two sisters below her. The Bates love how thoughtful she is towards others. Weighing only 4 lbs 13 oz when she returned home from the NICU, Addee was the smallest Bates baby. Surprisingly, she claims that her favorite food is salad.

Erin: 'It sounds like a zoo'

 Callie Bates, Addallee Bates, and Ellie Bates

"One of the problems we have in our family [is that] we have never learned to let one person talk at a time. There's this huge barrage of verbal things coming, and everybody's talking at one time."

-Gil Bates

Bates Grad Party Snapshots

We know you all have loved seeing pictures from Trace and Carlin Bates' high school graduation party. The Clark family shared the following snapshots with us. Can you tell if there any Bates family members missing from these photos?

...It took us 16 hours to get to TN, and we won the prize for being in a car the longest. It was so, so worth it!!  We weren't even sure if we would meet any of them so you can imagine how we felt meeting them for 2 days, as well as the Duggars!! Best weekend ever!  They are the sweetest people, so down to earth, taking time to get to know their fans. We arrived almost 2 hours early & they let us hang out with them while they set up. Such an honor and a lifetime of memories! Hope to see them again in the future!
