Lower Radiator Coolant Hose Cold... Normal?

Finished replacing new radiator, coolant, belts and flushed the intercooler last week (200Tdi). I have been driving around the last few days without issue (other than a small oil leak on the oil coiler line). Temp gauge is just over the 1/4 line, cabin heat works, but today I was poking around the engine bay and noticed all the hoses are hot except the lower hose up to the t-stat. Truck seems to run well (almost better than before)- is this normal or do I need to bleed system somehow. Thanks.

Registry
When thermostat opens, hot coolant from engine flows into radiator thru top hose and comes back to water pump on bottom much cooler. Before tstat opens, nothing flows thru tadiator.
