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?

check the hoses

the bottom one sometimes can collapse
and cause the overheating.
