More Babies Already?

Carlin's siblings hold Layla Stewart for the first time

"Getting to hold Layla, she was so tiny, she was so precious, just perfect."
-Nathan Bates

On their way home from the hospital, Carlin and Evan Stewart stop by the "big house" to introduce Layla to the family. This is the first time that the entire Bates crew hasn't been able to visit a baby at the hospital. As her siblings cuddle the newest addition, Carlin states that she already wants more babies. Evan smiles and reminds her that they aren't trying to set any records, and Kelly offers some helpful advice.

  1. If she's already wanting more she's not even enjoying layla.

    1. Well, that's not true. Obviously she's enjoying her a LOT, enough to want more of the same.

    2. Wasn't she just coming from the hospital? She hadn't had many days to enjoy Layla. She was enjoying the experience so much that she wanted more babies. That means that she is enjoying Layla. If she didn't enjoy Layla, she wouldn't want more.

    3. Unless she wanted the attention. Carlin came from a family of 19 kids. I suspect her wedding, pregnancy and new baby gave her the most attention from her parents in her life. No wonder she wants to do it again soon! Lovely family.

  2. I said the same thing after my first baby (a girl, too) was born!!! I couldn’t wait to have more and wanted to try right away! However, my husband wasn’t as eager;) Four years later we had our baby boy and that was it; my husband did not want anymore children:(. Love my two kids to pieces!!!

  3. Do these women ever think or talk about anything other than babies?

    1. Yes, fashion, but that's about it.

    2. Why the hyperbole? You know they do.

    3. Babies and weddings are about it and since no one is engaged yet, babies win by default.

    4. Maybe about weddings but that is it.
      When a litte girlis born the parents are starting to think about the girl getting married, walking her to the aisle.
      It is all about getting married and having lots of babies.

  4. It's not uncommon that visitors are limited. Most hospitals will allow grandparents & siblings to the new baby not the Mom or Dad's siblings.

    1. Wasn't this during the start of the lockdown? I'm surprised that anyone other than Evan was allowed. And I'm surprised she stopped by Gil and Kelly's house on the way home. I wouldn't have wanted a newborn around that many people under normal conditions, let alone when we were supposed to social distance. Or had that not started yet?

    2. This was in the beginning of February so covid wasn’t high up on anyone’s radar yet

  5. Carlin is just so adorable talking about Layla. And introducing her to the entire family. It was just so sweet to see all the family members so excited to meet her, even the little ones. Great show

  6. I don’t know about anytime else here, but for a few days after giving birth, I get this overwhelming and intense love and joy. It’s insane. From the looks of it, Carlin may have experienced that too!

    1. She's obviously in euphoria over the experience of having a precious newborn, which I totally get. Let her enthuse. When she has her hands full after a few, she may change her mind. Or she may not. Some people thrive with many kids, some don't.

    2. I just love Carlin and Evan! They are just fun! Their You Tube channel brightens my day; down to earth, real and full of energy!

  8. Gosh I was no where near ready for children at Carlins age. Layla is beautiful and I pray all the best for them.

  9. I love this Bates and this is a lovely clip, but Whitney saying it's making her want another one... I mean Khloé was 2 months old at the time, so she was pretty new. But Carlin/Evan are glowing parents lovely

    1. There's just something about a newborn, though. Even a two month old is different.

    2. Suz- I think women say something like that in the moment when there's a new baby around- when given time to reflect, the answer could very well be different!

  10. Happy Birthday to Lawson Bates! Also today is my son's 13th birthday.🎂🍰

  11. Gosh I wish I had a big family! Every time I see big families they always seem to be having so much fun. My arms ache for holding a new baby! I hope my kids give me a grandchild one day SOON! :D I would love to have a lot of grandchildren but I don't know if that will happen. Most are only having 2 or none at all these days. :(

    1. Why don’t you become a foster parent?

    2. SallyV- Be careful what you wish for!

      Delete
    3. Why should she be careful what she wishes for? Wishing doesn't make things happen. And there's nothing wrong about having lots of grandchildren.

      Delete
    4. 8:11- I don’t expect that my kids provide me with grandchildren.

      Delete
    5. 8:36, the OP didn't say that she "expects" her kids to do that either. She said she hopes, and she also said it may not happen.
