‘Counting On’: Joy-Anna Forsyth Shares Rare Photos of Gideon

Counting On‘s Joy-Anna Duggar and Forsyth Austin don’t take to their Instagram accounts to share photos of their son Gideon every day. Their joint Insta account occasionally shows the little boy, and the last post was back in late August. Even then, the photo was buried five images back from Joy-Anna’s list of “Things To Do.” But on Tuesday night, (September 18), they shared some pictures of him via their Stories.

Joy-Anna Duggar Forsyth’s previous post – Counting On housework

Last month, Counting On fans were thrilled to see a photo of Gideon, even though Joy shared her Counting On-style girl’s daily diary as the main picture. However, some people felt her daily work list was way too mundane a lifestyle. Nevertheless, others commended her for being a stay-at-home mom. Notably, one post said, “Joy, you are amazing honey. People think being a stay at home mom is easy. It is soooo not and any man should take care of their kid. It isn’t a special privilege it is what a hubby is supposed to do.”

The Latest photos on Tuesday were posted as a Story, so of course, Counting On fans cannot comment on the newest images of little Gideon. Joy-Anna Duggar Forsyth wasn’t toiling away in the laundry or washing dishes in this post. It looked like they were in the car going out somewhere. Little Gideon looked so cute in his red shirt with black cars on it. He’s got this giant smile in the first picture.

Gideon’s growing fast but photos are rare

Gideon, one of Counting On‘s more recent babies, is growing fast. Perhaps it’s more noticeable to fans because we don’t get to see pictures every day. Certainly, Austin Forsyth doesn’t post photos as often as his brother-in-law, Jeremy Vuolo. Gideon looks remarkably like his dad in these rare photos. There’s a touch of Joy-Anna Duggar and maybe something of Jim Bob Duggar as well.

Joy-Anna labeled the second photo with the caption, “Those big blue eyes!” They really are beautiful eyes, something fans noticed from previous pictures of Gideon. But they definitely are getting bluer it seems. Babies often change shape and even eye color as they grow through their first six months of life.

He’ll be seven months old in four days time and his features are becoming strongly defined now. What a smiling kid he is! His dad and mom are also smiling people, so maybe he got it from them.

Joy-Anna Forsyth posts third picture of Gideon

As if to make up for not frequently posting Gideon photos, Counting On‘s Joy and Austin Forsyth posted a third picture in the story. This time, it looks like he’s laughing out loud. Joy must be enjoying her little bundle of joy, even though not long ago, she said how she thought parenting would be easier than it is.
