Jill Duggar set aside her concerns about the Josh Duggar sexual molestation scandal--for Saturday anyway--and celebrated the two-month birthday of her and Derick Dillard's son, Israel David Dillard. The celebration was no doubt a welcome change from the angst Jill Duggar, sister Jessa Duggar, and parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have experienced since filming an interview for airing on The Kelly File with Megyn Kelly on both Wednesday and Friday evenings.

Jill Duggar Dillard and husband Derick welcomed their baby boy into their world back on April 6th. Shortly thereafter they celebrated sister Jessa Duggar Seewald's pregnancy. She is due in November.

The past few weeks have been filled with pain and what Jill Duggar called 'revictimization' in her interview with Megyn Kelly. The weekend celebration hopefully took her away from all that--at least for a little while.

The Instagram photo Jill Duggar shared of baby Israel shows a happy little boy, who looks rather amused at the notion of having his photo taken.

"Happy 2 month birthday #IsraelDavidDillard! We are so blessed to be your parents! May you grow up to love Jesus and serve others! #2monthbirthday @derickdillard," she captioned the picture.

One look at that precious face, and Jill Duggar should feel the love that surrounds her. Hopefully that, too, will help heal some of the pain she and her sisters--Jana Duggar and Jinger Duggar are purportedly Josh Duggar's victims, too--have experienced since the media learned of what Josh did all those years ago.

Hopefully the rest of the 19 Kids and Counting family had an opportunity to share--along with Derick and Jill--the blessing that has graced their lives in the form of baby Israel.
