By the nature of the celebrity gossip business in which we've chosen to carve out a career, we often cover some depressing stories.
We don't ask for your pity. We just ask for you to understand why we're going in a different direction down below.
For at least the next few minutes, we're not gonna focus on wife beaters or tax evaders. We're just gonna post adorable baby photos, courtesy of Tori Roloff!!!!!
The Little People, Big World star is one of our favorite Instagram follows because she just keeps it real and normal and candid.
Earlier this week, Roloff posted the picture above, which may officially be our favorite Instagram photo in the history of this platform.
“Insists on laying on his sister," wrote the pregnant reality star, giving us a look at young son Jackson making himself comfortable on his mom's baby bump.
Tori and Zach Roloff are expecting a baby girl right around Thanksgiving this year, with Tori frequently offering fans an update on her status, both physically and mentally.
You can see what we mean here:
Elsewhere on her Instagram page of late, Tori posted several images of Jackson doing one of his favorite things:
Pretending to be a construction worker.
"My boys in their happy place," wrote Tori as a caption along with the first photo below, adding:
"Jackson has been so spoiled this week with muel [sic] rides, airplanes, and now watching tractors! This kid has no clue how blessed he truly is."
We're guessing his awesome parents are doing the best they can to instill this belief/value in him, however.
Based on photos that Matt Roloff has also posted to Instagram, it appears as if Jackson is hanging out at his grandfather's place in this set of pictures.
"My little buddy helping get some serious work done today around the farm... sad for me to take down the remainder of the tree house," explained the Roloff patriarch as a caption to his own snapshot of Jackson as an adorable construction worker.
Added this long-time TLC personality:
"A storm blew a big Part of the old oak tree down last year.
"And the tree just couldn’t be saved. So today the family stood by and watched as I brought the remainder of the house down."
Announced Tori and Zach in May, speaking to Us Weekly:
"We are so excited to announce that Jackson is going to be a big brother! We can not wait to meet our sweet baby girl!"
She later admitted that this second pregnancy has been a struggle.
"I’m not one of those women who loves being pregnant,” the 28-year old confessed on August 14, adding at the time:
“In fact, there’s not a lot of times I do love being pregnant.
"Don’t get me wrong. I thank God for this amazing gift every single day, and I know how blessed I am, but it definitely hasn’t made me feel my best.
"However, I am so freaking thankful I was talked into maternity photos by friends and family. This photo truly embodies what I LOVE about pregnancy.”
“My growing bump is a symbol of a healthy girlsie. It’s a reminder that I’m in a position that many women dream of, and trust me — I do not take it for granted."
And in case Tori ever had any doubts about how lucky she is, all she has to do is look at this photo of Jackson directly above.
We mean... come on now! How can any child be this cute?!?
