Kade Smith at 3 Months Old

Photos of Kade are few and far between, and he has not yet appeared on Bringing Up Bates, so we know you will enjoy this new snapshot of him. He is now three months old.

The Bates are all in Rocky Top this weekend for their annual I Love You Day celebration. Last year the theme was "growing old together," and this year they all dressed in medieval costumes.

  1. Kade is a handsome little felllow. It is probably good that they have had time away from the cameras to settle into Bobby's new ministry, adjusting to married life and now their precious little man without the public scrutiny.

  2. I just sounds like another staged activity.

    1. Why are you on their page if you’re just going to leave an unnecessary, unkind (and grammatically incorrect) comment? They’re sharing life events with their fans. If you’re against that, you don’t have to watch.

    2. It is how they celebrate Valentine's Day. It is special to them.

    3. Really why make negative comments it is a family activity they do every year. A few years ago they explained this family activity. My family has our own traditions too. If you have nothing kind to offer then please leave.

  8. I just admire this family so much. They are so authentic, nothing fake about them. They are not afraid to profess their love for the Lord. I really wish that the public would stop comparing them with the "Duggar's. No comparison!!!!! Wishing the very best for there season this year on TV. God Bless

    1. Unknown: I agree that the Bates are a charming. loving, and likable family. What they also have going for them is that they are attractive people. One thing that doesn't impress me is when they, or anyone, professes their love for the Lord. If you truly believe you do, more power to you. But to me the words are empty and I'm not convinced that anyone understands God. At best, we might pretend we do. The Bible is filled with contradictions and if there is a God, I think he's letting folks down in a lot of ways. I admit having a hard time loving what I view as an invisible, vindictive and secretive entity that demands unquestioning allegiance. Particularly because no one asked to be born into this crazy world, let alone be able to choose their parents.
      If we are all made in God's image, I think the realistic thing to do is commit ourselves to loving each other during our time on this earth. In that way, we are honoring and loving the creator. It doesn't matter what church you attend, or if none at all. The goal is the same. I don't know how a reasonable God could argue with that.

  9. I love this family and this show. One of the few clean and positive things I can look forward to on television. Your family is so uplifting and beautiful. Thank God there is still Godly people in this world working for him. I’m actually from Knoxville so you make me proud to be neighbors.

    2. Denise: I have never understood what people mean when they refer to someone else as Godly, or that they work for God. I know many wonderful and caring people who work tirelessly to help others. They live their lives without expectation of notariety or attention, nor do they attend any church. They are certainly not on TV. I find them to be the most uplifting and beautiful, because they don't preach or have a religious agenda. The only agenda they have is to make this world a little better before they leave it.
