Some of the Seewalds are still getting used to the new addition to their household.

While Jessa (Duggar) Seewald and husband Ben Seewald are quickly adapting to life as a family of four after welcoming their second son, Henry Wilberforce, on Feb. 6 — she feeds the baby while he does the diapers — their first son, Spurgeon Elliot, is also learning something now: how to be a big brother!

When the siblings first met, 15-month-old Spurgeon was a little confused.

“We thought, ‘This is going to be so adorable,’ but he wasn’t really sure about it,” says Jessa, 24. “He thought Henry was a toy, so he wanted to touch his eyes and put his finger in the baby’s mouth.”

Ben, 21, adds that his eldest son “has no concept of being soft.”

Spurgeon may have even more eldest sibling duties — Jessa, the fourth of 19 children born to Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, is excited about the possibility of adding more little ones to their brood.

“It will be a little while since we just had a baby, but adopting and fostering to adopt is very much in our hearts,” the Counting On star says.
