They grow up so fast! Jessa Duggar and her husband Ben Seewald celebrated their son Spurgeon's second birthday on Sunday, Nov. 5 and Jessa took to Instagram to share some photos from Spurgy's special day — and she penned a touching tribute to her firstborn son! Watch the video below to see Jessa's birthday message to her son Spurgeon!
Of course, Jessa shares a lot with her baby boy, but they have one super special thing in common — their birthdays are within one day of each other! Jessa spent her 23rd birthday in labor with her first child, which means that Jessa's mom Michelle Duggar was also in labor on November 4, 1992! Jessa decided to pay tribute to the super strong connection that her birthday and Nov. 4 has for her, her mom, and her son in a sweet message on Instagram for her birthday.
"A quarter of a century ago, this beautiful woman gave birth to a daughter — her biggest baby, 9 [pounds], 15 [ounces]," Jessa wrote in the caption of a throwback photo of her mom, taken moments after she was born. "And on this same day, 23 years later, that daughter would be in labor with her first child. When my mom finally arrived as I was laboring to give birth to Spurgeon, the first words out of my mouth were 'HOW ON EARTH DID YOU DO THIS 19 TIMES [sic] ?!'"
Jessa went on to share more details about spending her 23rd birthday in labor, and she even admitted that she told her hubby that she didn't want to have any more kids. But Jessa eventually changed her mind and she quoted a bible verse that helped her overcome her fear of having more children. The couple welcomed their second child — a son named Henry — back in February.
