One Month Old! Tori Roloff Shares Adorable Photo of Baby Jackson Who’s ‘Growing Like a Champ’

Posted on

It’s been a month since Zach and Tori Roloff welcomed their sweet baby boy into the world, and he’s already “growing like a champ.”

The new mom shared an adorable photo of Jackson Kyle to Instagram on Monday, which marked exactly a month since she gave birth to him on May 12.

“Jackson is one month old today!” Tori wrote.

The Little People, Big World star also updated her followers with some humorous tidbits about the infant.

“He is eating and growing like a champ.💪🏼 Loves watching soccer with daddy. ⚽️Starting to find his voice. 🎤,” she continued.

“Sleeps 5-6 hour stretches at night. 🙏🏼 Loves his Uncle Jacob. 💙” Tori wrote about her son’s likes.

As for what baby Jackson doesn’t enjoy, Tori listed diaper changes and bath time as some of his least favorite activities.

“Hates having his diaper changed. 👎🏼 Tolerates bath time. 🛀,” she continued, and added,  “Love you so much Baby J! #zandtpartyofthree.”

Like his daddy, Jackson was born with achondroplasia, the most common form of dwarfism.

Males with achondroplasia grow to an average height of 4’4″ with a normal lifespan, and babies may have breathing problems and delays in muscle development.

Zach knows the genetic condition will make Jackson’s life tougher, but “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,” he told PEOPLE after the birth of their first child.

“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,” said Zach, a soccer coach. “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.”

Added Tori, who works as a kindergarten teacher: “We knew our chances of having a dwarf, but it didn’t matter. We just knew we wanted to be parents, however God wanted it to happen.”
