The littlest Duggar is growing up fast — surely a bittersweet reality for proud parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar! The 19 Kids And Counting stars recently celebrated their youngest child’s fourth birthday, offering their gratitude for the outpouring of support that took place in the immediate aftermath of Michelle’s emergency C-section.
Michelle Duggar never did reach that milestone of twenty children and, though she says she’d happily have more, she recognizes that another baby may not be in her future. Instead, the reality mom is keeping busy by showering her youngest child Josie (not to mention the growing group of Grand Duggars) with love.
Josie is certainly receiving special treatment this week — yesterday was the youngest Duggar’s fourth birthday! A new post on the official Duggar blog highlights Josie’s remarkable journey, including her dramatic birth “via emergency C-section” when she weighed “just over one pound.” The blog continues, “Every year on December 10th, we remember what a miracle she is and how her survival was an answer to millions of prayers from across the globe.”
No specifics yet on Josie’s birthday celebration, but we’ll probably witness the festivities during a future episode of 19 Kids And Counting. Eldest sibling Josh Duggar took to Twitter to post a picture of a large family gathering….plus an adorable Instagram picture of Josie singing in the car! Christmas may be approaching, and with it, plenty of opportunities for family footage — but we can’t imagine the Duggars would forget to include a special tribute to their youngest member on the next season of 19 Kids And Counting!
Do you think Josie Duggar really is Michelle’s last child? Sound off in the comments section below!
