John David and Abbie Duggar are celebrating their first Fourth of July as new parents to their almost 6-month-old daughter, Grace Annette Duggar. The Counting On stars don’t post on social media as often as the rest of their siblings, but when they do it’s usually something special for their fans. On Saturday, the couple sent out an Instagram snap of Gracie in an adorable patriotic outfit.
In honor of the holiday, John and Abbie dressed their little girl up in red, white, and blue, and shared it with their 527,000 followers. There was not just one photo either, but a set of three that revealed how much the Duggar granddaughter has grown since the last picture was posted. In all three pics, Grace wore a sleeveless outfit with the top half in red and white stripes and the bottom half a puffy blue tutu with white stars. At the waistline was a red bow attached. She also had a white headband with a matching flower worn across the top of her small head.
John and Abbie’s firstborn was smiling as the photo was snapped. Her dark eyes appeared to be sparkling as she grinned. She was being held up by her daddy, but only his hands could be seen. There was also a baby bracelet on her tiny wrist. The other Duggar granddaughters seem to have the same type of bracelet as seen in previous photos.View this post on Instagram

The second pic was a family portrait with John David and Abbie Duggar standing close to each other looking quite happy. Abbie was holding their daughter in her arms. It looked like the family of three spent the day outdoors, as a creek was seen in the background.
John David wore a blue shirt and baseball cap for the outing, while his blond wife had a white top on. Her long curly hair was pulled back into a side ponytail.
The third and final snapshot was very similar to the first one of Gracie. The only difference was her expression. This time she appeared to be in a half-smile with something of a curious look on her face.
Duggar fans were completely enamored with the cuteness overload. They took time out of their Fourth of July festivities to share in their excitement of seeing Gracie once again.
“Oh my heart! She is adorable!” one follower said.
“Baby’s a cutie pie, her 4th of July wee dress,” replied another fan.
“Those cheeks and eyes,,, beautiful,” a third person remarked.
The reality stars have been sharing monthly snaps on Instagram every time Grace hits another month older. The 5-month milestone was celebrated with a sweet snap of the baby on her tummy looking up at the camera. It looks like she has grown a bit in the past month.

New York woman, 25, falls to her death while rock climbing
A 25-year-old Brooklyn woman fell to her death while rock climbing near New Paltz, police said Monday.
Lauren Sobel was leading two other climbers at the Mohonk Mountain Preserve around 3:30 p.m. Sunday when she lost her grip while trying to set protective gear about 70 feet up the rock face, according to New York State Police.
Sobel fell 50 feet and died at the scene, cops said.
Her dad, David Sobel, told The Post of the accident, “She was the lead, which means she’s on top.”
“She was three feet above her hook and she was going to put another one in and that’s when she fell and apparently there were three different safety measures taken and all three failed,” David explained, adding that Lauren was certified and trained to lead this type of climb.
She was on vacation climbing with two friends at the time, the dad said.

UTAH CLIMBER RESCUED FROM REMOTE CLIFF AFTER HITTING HEAD, LOSING CONSCIOUSNESS IN FALL
The 59-year-old father described Sobel as an adventurer and who loved the sport so much that she even climbed in Brazil and Mexico.
David said his daughter picked up the hobby after helping amputee military veterans learn how to climb at indoor facilities.
Lauren, a municipal bond analyst at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, “donated her time to helping military veterans who had amputated limbs learn to rock climb and she did that before she even knew how to rock climb because she believed in the cause,” David said while choking back tears.
“And from that, her interest developed and she became an avid rock climber,” he said.
Lauren even won an award through Bank of America for her hours of charity work with the veterans, David said.
David said Lauren climbed frequently whenever she had free time.

“She had a job but she would try to find the opportunity to rock climb when she could,” he said.
Lauren wasn’t married or in a relationship, David said. She had an older sister and loved her sister’s 5-year-old son “a whole lot,” David said.
David said Lauren was “extremely energetic. She was always doing something.”
David recalled his daughter’s determination and adventurous spirit, remembering in her teenage years when she asked to go to France. David told her she would have to become fluent in French and get straight A’s in school before he would sponsor her trip there.
By the time Lauren was 17, she had won the state French convention and was given a free trip to study at the University of Saint Ann Nova Scotia for the summer of 2011. So David said he let her go to France the next summer.
“It made it very hard to tell her she can’t go away after she won all that,” David recalled fondly.
“She was fluent in multiple languages. Pretty much all self-taught. She just had an aptitude for it,” David said.
“So that’s what I meant by an adventurer, at a very early age she was begging to go places and do things.

“The girl grew up in Alexandria, Louisiana. Taking off and going to New York City by herself and getting a really good job at Bank of America as an analyst — a lot of people in the hometown would call that an adventure.”
