Gideon at 5 Months Old

Gideon Forsyth just turned five months old, and his little smile is contagious. Yesterday, Joy and Gideon brought lunch to Austin, who was at a job site spreading a large load of gravel, and then ended up staying to lend a hand. As fans know, Joy has always been a bit of a tomboy, and she doesn't shy away from hard work. Looks like Gideon is having a blast, as well.

  6. He’s so cute!
    I’m thinking Joy will probably announce a pregnancy before the end of the year.

    1. I really hope she doesn't as she needs to give her body time to recover from her first pregnancy and c-section delivery.

      Delete
    2. Hopefully not as she had a c-section and the recommendated age gap for the scar not tearing is 2 years.

      Delete
    3. That's really up to them and GOD

      Delete
    4. Well they should really wait the recommended time frame to help prevent another c-section. That can only be done by purposefully postponing the next pregnancy. We just don't want her or her family to suffer complications.

  7. Don't that baby got no clothes !!!!! A little cotton T-shirt would be more comfortable if
    sitting on plastic car seat.....geeesh.

    1. It’s not a car seat it’s a bumbo, they’re squishy, not hard and plastic

      Delete
    2. No he doesn't have any clothes on. He is not in a plastic car seat but a little seat for a pool. He most likely had been to the pool with his mama and she took his picture. Nothing wrong with that! Geeesh!

      Delete
    3. He’s just grinning and smiling....happy happy happy! Why pick about how he’s dressed.

      Delete
    4. Maybe she didn't want to put clothes on him. My daughter as well as myself rarely put hot clothes on our babies I'm sure he owns clothing but naked babies are precious. After all that's how we were born. God doesn't make mistakes

      Delete
    5. He probably got his clothes dirty and sweaty while spreading gravel.

      Delete
    6. Can you please stop!! It's a photo!!

      Delete
    7. "Don't that baby got no clothes"!!!! Lol!

      Delete
    8. That's a bumbo seat. It's not plastic, it's a soft pillow like texture. It was also over 100 degrees that day. Stop being a criticizing little troll.

      Delete
    9. Nice grammar!

      Delete
    10. I'm sure they know what they are doing, maybe he spit-up or it's hot

      Delete
    11. HOW RUDE! MANY PARENTS INCLUDING MYSELF LET THE KIDS RUN AROUND IN A DIAPER ON REALLY HOT DAYS. AND SINCE THE BABY IS OBVIOUSLY SITTING IN A BUSTER CHAIR, AND SHE IS TAKING AUSTIN LUNCH, HE PROBABLY HAD A SNACK. HE IS SITTING THERE NOT RIDING THAT WAY. HE HAS A CARSEAT IN THE BACK. THEY ALWAYS PUT THEIR KIDS IN THE BACKSEAT, IN THEIR CARSEATS. GEEZ GET A GRIP

      Delete
    12. It's like 100° outside. He'd probably pitch a fit if his mom said "I'm sorry sugar. This troll online said you need to wear a t-shirt". Those bumbo seat are cool to the touch. He's obviously happy about it. Chill.

      Delete
    13. That's exactly the kind of outfit I'd like to be able to run around wearing in the summer! ;)

      What I'd like to know, though, is why she had him along at a construction site. Seems one of the aunties could babysit.

      Delete
    14. 11:50, he was perfectly safe, and maybe she likes to bring him with her, and Austin likes to get to see his kid during the day. I used to loved visiting my dad when he was working when I was little!

      Delete
    15. I wouldn't bring a baby to a construction site where dirt or stones were being moved. Do you know what that puts in the air?

      Delete
    16. I doubt it is a construction site in the sense of heavy equipment. It’s just Austin, with maybe a handful of workers, building a house. Austin and Joy are too caring and smart to put their baby in harm’s way.

  8. What cute little guy! Just as happy as can be.

  9. Sweet little baby

    1. Why do you keep posting comments like this about Joy?

    2. Crazy suggestion considering she had a c-section.

  12. Gideon is a happy baby. Looks like his dad. Have they stopped doing the blanket pictures at one month intervals? I only remember seeing months one and two.

    1. I love that blanket idea! I hope they post more pictures of the baby on it.

  13. Dear Gideon, I can't believe your 5 months old. I've seen pictures of you when you were born I think they looked nice. I can't wait for you to have more siblings in the near future. Natasha B.

    1. Not in the near future, his mom had a csection. She’ll probably have another baby in two years.

  21. So cute, and another example of what hard workers they are.

  22. Nice picture. But that Seat is not safe. And he needs clothing.

    1. It’s a bumbo not a car seat, and it was 100 degrees out that day, kids don’t have to be fully clothed at all times.

  23. Austin is a little man. Loves construction sites. It's where the action is. Best smile I've seen in a long time. A happy baby.

  24. A bumbo in the car??

    1. So? He was sitting in it while they were eating, maybe he doesn’t like being strapped in a car seat and he was getting a break.

    1. How does such a huge baby at birth end up skinny? Maybe he needs some solid food.

      Delete
    2. Yeah I hope its just the camera angle

      Delete
    3. 11:07, it’s not like he looks starved, some babies are huge at birth and then grow at a more normal speed.

      Delete
    4. I know. I thought the same. He really is TINY for that age.

      Delete
    5. Maybe Uncle Ben can get him to hit the gym and do arm curls. Or push a truck down the Duggar driveway.

      Delete
    6. He does look small. Lauren's baby brother Duke is the same age and looks larger and chubbier than him. It's surprising since he was the largest grandduggar at birth.

      Delete
    7. He looks like he’ll have Josiah Duggars body type, although if you look at Austin’s baby pictures he was a really skinny baby too.

      Delete
    8. Maybe Joy has him on skim milk.

  40. He does look small..but arms look long and lanky....
    He'll gain when he starts eating more....
    And you couldn't see that he looked 'skinny' if he had on a shirt...😌

  41. Very, very small for 5 months. Wow. What’s going on?!

    1. He looks a lot like my son did when he was a baby. My son is now a lanky teenager with a healthy appetite.

    2. Babies come in more than one size.

    3. I think he needs more milk, he is lovely with that smile!

  42. He may have his daddy's face, but he sure has his Grandpa Duggar's nose.

  43. What an adorable baby! Now I know where the expression, “Smiling from ear to ear” comes from. In any picture we see, Gideon looks so happy.

    ReplyDelete
  44. He’s definitely a mini Austin and as cute as a button! 👶❤️

  45. How can you not get a happy rush when you see that smile!!
