After enduring what she’s described as the most difficult year of her life, Jessa Duggar is understandably eager to seize any opportunity to celebrate.

And that’s just what she did yesterday while observing a family milestone on Instagram:

Jill, Ben and Spurgeon Seewald

Jessa posted the above photo, along with a caption reading:

"Mr. Spurgeon will be 4 months old this week! Yayyyy!!! “Lol! He ain’t gotta clue, but Papi and I are celebrating for him over a pint of white chocolate raspberry ice cream @loblollycreamery #CelebrateAllTheMilestones #AnyExcuseForIceCream. Please tell me I’m not the only one.”

Clearly, Jessa and Ben are in good spirits, but that look on Spurgeon’s face seems to say, "Are you guys sure it’s too late to go back and change my name?"

We kid! Lil Spurge might be saddled with an unfortunate moniker, but at least he’ll grow up famous!

It was confirmed last week that the Duggars will be returning to television on March 15, with a full order of episodes of their spinoff series Jill and Jessa: Counting On.

Despite the title, the series will reportedly feature most of the Duggar siblings, and allow them to more thoroughly address the conitnuing fallout from the Josh Duggar sex scandals.

So despite a whirlwind 12 months that would test anyone’s strength, Jessa has plenty of reason to smile these days – and plenty of excuses to indulge her sweet tooth.
