On April 6, the Duggars came out in full force to wish Israel a big happy birthday from Arkansas. Little Israel is currently celebrating in Central America with his missionary parents Jill and Derick Dillard.
In a touching blog post in honor of Israel, Jill revealed that this past Sunday her baby got to try cake for the first time with his gaggle of tiny buddies. The proud momma even went on to praise her son for all the accomplishments he has achieved thus far, like some sign language and a few Spanish vocab words!
The reality star gushed over her baby, writing:
"You can say, 'mama,' 'papa,' 'nur-nur' (when you wanna nurse) and 'uh oh,' as well as several words in sign language. You think that anytime you say 'more' or "please" in sign language you should be given whatever you're asking for. ;-) You love giving big slobbery kisses (or "besitos" in spanish) whether we ask you for one in English or Spanish. You love music and always dance to it when you hear it, or clap with the congregation during worship time in church. You respond with a big smile and raise your hands toward the ceiling when we ask you to say, 'Gloria a Dios.'"
Aww! What a smart kiddo!
But wait, that's not all! You can check out the Duggars' tributes to the little one (below)!
But now, the younger sister of Louis, Félicité Deakin (pictured above, left, with Louis), has figured out her own way to pay tribute to her mother in a very special manner, and we are SO touched by it.
On Friday, the 16-year-old Deakin shared the following image (below), a gorgeous portrait of the family with her late mother, Johannah Deakin, surrounded by all of her children:
