While we all wait with bated breath for TLC to announce when Little People, Big World is coming back, we don’t have to wait for news of the Roloffs. Because social media exists.
And Tori Roloff is making use of it to tell us exactly how much she loves her precious baby, Jackson Roloff.
Or, as the family has taken to calling him: Baby J.
If you’re finding yourself overwhelmed by Jackson’s cuteness, you’re not alone.
Not even Jackson’s own mother is immune.
In fact, if anything, Tori Roloff is
“I have such FOMO when it comes to this kid.”
Before you start googling things or, worse, trying to come up with your own guesses for that achronym, it means: fear of missing out.
“I am so obsessed with every move he makes.”
That’s human instinct in a nutshell, right there.
(Tori Roloff’s post continues, but first, let’s remember exactly how inescapably adorable Jackson Roloff is)
He’s. So. Cute.
Tori can only begin to list his most precious attributes:
“His little fingers. His coos. And I can’t even with his gummy two tooth smile.”
We can’t even, either.
“He literally breaks my heart (in a good way) every time he moves.”
That’s, again, human instinct. Your whole system gets flooded with oxytocin. (This doesn’t just happen with babies; making your favorite person laugh or looking at videos of puppies can do the same thing)
“I love being this kids mom.”
A lot of parents like to gripe about their kids (totally unfair), so it’s so nice to hear this from Tori.
“God has blessed me in such a way. He’s made me realize things don’t matter — people do.”
Different people have different views of materialism, but we can probably all agree that your children should come first.
Tori ends the beautiful note by reiterating her affection for her infant son, and referring to him by his nickname.
“Love you so much baby j.”
That’s followed by a cyan heart emoji and the tag: “#babyjroloff”
We like the name Jackson, but you know what? “Baby J” is sweet and has the same number of syllables as Ember Jean.
That’s probably not why they came up with the nickname — those tend to crop up organically — but it’s a cute little coincidence.
Jackson is adorable and, now that Jackson’s over 6 months old, it might not be long before he’s talking. Like, for-real talking.
(Different babies develop at different rates — some don’t talk until they’re over a year old, and that’s okay!)
For now, though, his parents and the rest of the Roloff clan can just enjoy how precious and sweet he is.
Baby J doesn’t need words to show them how much he loves them.
Ember Jean recently passed a couple of “milestones,” herself.
Not, like, developmental milestones — she’s still only a few months old.
But she went to “help” pick out a Christmas tree. And she had her first trip to the beach!
Right now, the developmental gap between Ember Jean and Baby J might as well be the grand canyon — just a few months, at their age, make a world of difference.
But, in just a few years, their age difference will seem almost meaningless. These two precious cousins will get to grow up, side-by-side.
We can’t wait to watch them every step of the way!
