2005 chevy impala overheating..?

I have a 3.4L V6 in my base model 2005 impala. about 3 months ago or so it started overheating when i would sit at a stoplight or drive-thru so i changed the thermostat which helped but now (3 or 4 months later) it's doing it again! could the cooling system have some kind of buildup in the hoses that could be causing the theermostat to stick or wear out prematurely?
