It’s been nearly a month since Zach and Tori Roloff welcomed their son Jackson into the world — and Little People, Big World fans can’t seem to get enough pictures of the little guy!
Luckily, the thrilled new parents have been releasing lots of photos their bundle of joy over the last few days. Last night, Tori posted an adorable photo of Baby Jackson in the crib of his nursery.
In the photo, Jackson is lying on sheets that say, “I am a child of God.” As Inquisitr previously reported, the sheets were a gift from Zach’s twin brother, Jeremy Roloff, and his wife, Audrey. A stuffed toy dog resembling Zach and Tori’s late dog, Sully, is also seen in the crib, dutifully watching over the baby from between two mountain pillows.
“Hope you guys enjoyed seeing Jackson’s nursery as much as he enjoys laying in it. #zandtpartyofthree #babyJ #lpbw,” Tori wrote in the post.
In the weeks leading up to Jackson’s birth on May 12, Zach and Tori gave Little People, Big World fans a glimpse of their son’s nursery through photos on Instagram and a video tour on their TLCme vlog. The darling room features snow-capped mountains that Tori hand-painted on the walls and a cute plane mobile hung over the crib.
Last week, Zach and Tori confirmed that Baby Jackson suffers from anchondroplasia, the same form of dwarfism that Zach and his mother, Amy Roloff, have. However, the new parents — and all of the Roloff family — are taking the news in stride.
“We knew our chances of having a dwarf, but it didn’t matter,” Tori told People. “We just knew we wanted to be parents, however God wanted it to happen.”
As for Zach, his health problems due to achondroplasia — which required a painful leg-straightening surgery and a shunt placed in his brain to drain excess fluid — have been well documented on Little People, Big World. But the new dad knows Baby Jackson can overcome any obstacles that may come his way.
“You have to encourage a dwarf child a little more because it will take them five steps to do what others can do in two,” Zach said. “But I knew, dwarf or not, I was going to parent my child with the mentality that not everyone gets a trophy. You have to earn it.”
“I want people to know that he’s just like his dad: being a dwarf is just part of the whole package of who he is.”
Little People, Big World episodes are currently showing Zach and Tori in the weeks leading up to Jackson’s birth. In last night’s installment, the then-parents-to-be received the news that their son was a dwarf after his head and limbs were measured in an ultrasound. They also learned that Tori may need a C-section due to the size of the baby’s head.
Upon hearing the news, Tori admitted that the thought of surgery — which she had never undergone before — was terrifying.
Zach had a separate concern.
“Tori is not very good with pain,” he admitted.
Elsewhere in the episode, Amy Roloff expressed concerns for her daughter-in-law’s pending labor and delivery.
“Tori may have to have a C-section,” she told Little People, Big World cameras. “I would hope that an average-sized person could push the baby through, whether it’s a little person or average-sized, but you just never know.”
When Zach and Tori announced Jackson’s birth on Instagram, they reported that he weighed 9 pounds, 1 ounce and was 20.5 inches long. The couple hasn’t yet revealed if he was delivered via C-section or not, but the details will likely be revealed in future Little People, Big World episodes.
Little People, Big World airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on TLC.
