Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard received some wonderful gifts for their unborn baby--affectionately dubbed Baby Dilly--from Derick's Walmart co-workers on Thursday. With just two months to go until Jill Duggar is due to give birth, the 19 Kids and Counting couple felt lots of love at the shower.

Mom Michelle Duggar, along with several of her siblings, joined Derick Dillard and Jill Duggar for the baby shower. Jill's baby bump was, of course, front and center at the gathering. She accentuated it in a cute blue and white striped skirt, topped with a white top and blue sweater.

Derick Dillard shared his excitement and gratitude over the baby shower in an Instagram post.

"Thank you to my awesome team at work for putting on an unforgettable baby shower for Jill and me! #babydilly #19kids #firstbabyshowerexperience," he captioned the post.

Derick works as a tax accountant at Walmart, and when he and Jill Duggar first announced their pregnancy back in August, she set up a baby registry there. It's uncertain how many of the items on Jill's registry wound up as gifts at her baby shower, but it's likely that this won't be the only shower the couple receives.

"We were super excited," Jill Duggar said when discovering she was pregnant. "We prayed together, and thanked God for this new little life. I was screaming and everything. [Derick] was like, 'Don't get too excited! You might stress out the baby or something.' He's so cute. He's so sweet."

It's clear she feels the same joy about her husband these days, too. Jill Duggar Dillard posted an adorable shot of her with her hubby via Instagram just a few days ago. It's plain to see she is in the last trimester of her pregnancy.

"I'm blessed beyond measure to have the sweetest, most supportive, Godly man as my husband! I love you babe @derickdillard #lunchdate #soinlove #derickdillard," she captioned the photo.

Do you expect in the next two months--before Jill Duggar gives birth to Baby Dilly--that someone else will throw a shower for her and Derick? Might one of her sisters--like Jessa Duggar--be the one to host it?
