Jill Duggar Dillard and her hubby Derick are settling nicely into married life. The 19 Kids and Counting star and her husband courted less than a year before tying the knot in June. Now they are expecting their first baby, and in their eyes life couldn't be any better.

Mom Michelle Duggar shared tidbits about their marital bliss on the Duggar family website, where she regularly blogs about family happenings.

A fan asked the Duggar matriarch a question about Jill Duggar and her new husband, and she was all too happy to share about her daughter and son-in-law's accomplishments.

"They have their schedule already--they get up and off to work or Jill works on her studies," she wrote. Jill is studying to become a midwife. "Sometimes she'll pop by our place since it's awfully quiet at her house. She's so used to studying with noise."

Michelle was excited to share how proud Jill and Derick are of their home. She said the newlyweds and parents-to-be have already enjoyed entertaining friends and family members.

"It's so sweet to see them starting their lives and their family together," she blogged. "It was truly the joy of [Jill's] life to marry Derick and they both feel so blessed to have each other. They are just really, really happy to be married and enjoying married life."

Jill Duggar isn't the only member of the family to have said 'I do' recently. Sister Jessa Duggar tied the knot with Ben Seewald on November 1st.

"It's just so sweet to watch these guys and girls that are really in love," Michelle wrote. "Love is in the air and it's good for all of us to be around that, even if the little siblings have to go, 'Oh no, they're kissing again, oh my!'?

Jill Duggar Dillard and Jessa Duggar Seewald are just embarking on their married lives with their new husbands, but they're not the only ones who are adjusting to new ways of life. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar must be doing a bit of adjusting themselves, now that only 16 of their 19 children are living at home.
