Little People. Big World. Significant Milestone.
Over the weekend, Tori Roloff updated her Instagram page with two new photos of son Jackson, along with an update on how he's doing and what he's up to these days.
For starters: he's extremely adorable.
The above photo serves as case in point, and it also depicts Tori and Zach Roloff's first son lying on a numbered mat, the number "3" highlighted.
Because he turned three months old on Saturday!
Jackson was born to this famous couple on May 12, entering the world via C-Section and becoming the very first grandchild for Matt and Amy Roloff, whose relatives are featured on the aforementioned TLC reality series.
Just as she did at the two-month mark, Amy also updated fans on Jackson's latest habits and personality traits as a caption to the above image.
"Jackson is 3 months old!" wrote his mother excitedly, prior to sharing the following descriptive list:
- Baby J is so smiley these days! He loves having his hands in his mouth.
- Bath time is still our favorite time.
- We're up to 14 pounds!
- We've decided sleeping isn't totally our thing.
- Jackson is reaching for things He is also a professional hair grabber.
- Baby J has also been moving and stretching like crazy!
"Keep growing little man! Mom and Dad love you!"
The growth is an issue because Jackson was born with the gene for dwarfism, just like his father.
This means he will face various challenges that a "regular" child may not face as he gets older, but Zach can relate, having been through these same obstacles during his formative years.
We can't imagine a better role model for someone with Jackson's condition.
Tori and Zach have frequently kept followers apprised of Jackson's status ever since the day he was born.
We're grateful to them for letting us know exactly how the (very) young man is doing.
Tori, meanwhile, has also been open about her experience as a first-time mother.
Recently, for example, she shared a number of thoughts when it comes to breastfeeding.
"Hands down the hardest thing about being a mom has been breastfeeding," she wrote on Instagram earlier this month, adding by way of explanation:
"It was something I did not expect. I just figured it would come naturally because it's what nature intended, [but] I was so wrong.
"Jackson and I got so frustrated with one another in the beginning and it took every ounce of me to not quit."
She concluded at the time by offering advice to other mothers who can relate to this struggle:
"J and I have come a long way and we work well together now and I'm proud of that. There are still times that I feel overwhelmed with breastfeeding but I know I'm doing to best I can.
"We as women just do the best we can and that's all anyone can ask.
"You do you mamas. Don't let anyone make you feel insignificant or like you're not doing your best.
"Breastfeeding is ridiculously hard and it doesn't always work out. Our kids are going to be just fine."
