Audrey Roloff Shares Ember Update: She’s 8 Months Now!

Melting hearts since SeptEMBER of 2017. See what I did there.

So wrote Audrey Roloff in a very cute opening to her latest Instagram post, which was centered entirely on daughter Ember Jean.

And for good reason: Ember is now 8 months old!

As she has done nearly every month around this time since her child entered the world, Audrey updated fans on Ember's status, sharing a number of new (and PRECIOUS!) photos, while also giving us an idea of what the infant has been up to.

The answer? A whole lot!

1. She's on the Move!

"These photos are getting harder and harder to take! Our girlsie is getting more and more mobile," wrote Audrey about her eight-month old, who is apparently crawling all around.

2. Look Out, Kitty!

"She still loves to chase Pine," continued Audrey, referencing the cat she shares with husband Jeremy and who Little People, Big World fans have gotten to know well.

3. Aloha!

Ember "took her first flight with mom and Dad to Hawai," Audrey wrote, including with her update the cute photo above. It features Mommy and Daughter in this tropical locale.

4. Back It Up?

Lil ember
No thanks! Audrey explains that Ember "doesn't like being on her back," which is very normal for a girl her age.

5. What Does She Love, Though?

She "loves splashing in the bath (and ocean)," says Audrey. We wonder if they've considered putting Ember in a swim class just yet. Maybe she's a bit young, though.

6. Hooray for Ember!

She "attended her first Luau" and has "learned to clap," Audrey continued.

Audrey Roloff: I’ve Learned FIVE Things as a Mother

Audrey Roloff is still pretty new at this whole motherhood thing.

She gave birth to daughter Ember Jean in September of 2017 and has since written plenty about the amazing experience on Instagram.

Roloff has gotten into occasional trouble for some of the stuff she has said about having a child, but for the most part, she has simply gushed over her daughter and her family.

Now, via an Instagram post she posted in May of 2018, Audrey has shared with followers five lessons she has learned from being a parent.

Some may be obvious, others less so.

But perhaps you can relate to one or two of these tidbits?

1. Lesson #1:

Happy mommy and daughter
This is how Amber opened her informative and sort of fascinating post: "To love the body God gave me and to embrace its strength and beauty with gratefulness" is something she has learned.

2. How So?

Audrey roloff jeremy roloff and ember jean in maui
"Watching my body change and witnessing its ability to deliver a child taught me to appreciate my physical body in all of its God-designed complexities on a whole new level," Audrey details.

3. A Lesson of Importance and Priorities

Audrey roloff and ember jean in maui
Concludes Audrey in this case: "Motherhood has taught me focus less on body-image and more on being an image-bearer. I am also now capable of getting myself ready in less than 5 mintes, which is an added bonus."

4. Lesson #2:

Audrey and ember photo
"GRACE," writes Audrey, expounding a bit as follows: "Motherhood has taught me to give myself loads of grace for all the things I see other mothers doing that make me feel less-than."

5. Forget Social Media, She Adds

Audrey ember adorable
Yes, this is very ironic for a social media post to say, but Roloff continues on this point: "My standard for motherhood is rooted and established in the the Word [of] God not the world of Instagram."

6. Let's Turn to the Bible, Shall We?

With ember
Audrey often uses this as source material. In this instance, she wrotes: "Motherhood sure has a way of revealing my failures and flaws, but I’m refusing to let these discoveries steal my confidence in the grace of God who’s power is made perfect in my weakness. (2 Corinthians 12:9)."

Audrey Roloff Shares First-Ever Photo with Baby Jackson!!!!!

Little People, Big World fans across the Internet are still waiting for a photo of Audrey Roloff and Jacob Roloff together.

Until we see one, we're going to be left to wonder whether or not there really is a feud between these family members.

But at least any talk of a rivalry between Audrey and nephew Jackson Roloff can finally be put to bed, now that the former has shared a photo of herself with the latter.

For the first time EVER!

Audrey, Jeremy and Jackson

Audrey didn't even realize such an image didn't exist until she posed for it at Jackson's first birthday party, which was held at his family farm last week.

"I think this is the first picture of us with Jackson since he was born!" Audrey wrote to open her caption for a photo that also includes husband Jeremy.

She then referenced her daughter and explained why this was the case:

"All the pictures become OF the babies instead of WITH the babies ha! I can’t believe our nephew is already ONE!

"Sorry cousin Ember couldn’t stay awake till the end of the party to make the photo. Uncle Jer and Aunt Auj will always love you bud!"

The above snapshot is very cute, of course.

But Audrey also shared one of her eight-month old sitting next to the birthday boy and... holy presciousness! We can't get enough of these two!

Ember Jean Roloff and Jackson Kyle Roloff

Jackson turned a year old on May 10 and was feted by all of his loved ones.

Based on a photo shared by a very excited grandfather, it looks like the family was fortunate enough to enjoy a gorgeous afternoon forthe occasion, which included a tent as part of Camp Jackson.

"Happy Birthday baby J. What an incredible day of celebrating your 1st year of life!" Matt Roloff penned as a caption to the image below.

Celebrating with Jackson

Jackson is the first Roloff grandchild.

Shortly after he was born, parents Tori and Zach told the world that their son had been diagnosed with the same type of dwarfism with which his dad had also been diagnosed.

“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 told People Magazine at the time.

He can relate to everything his son has gone through and will go through and knows there will be some challenges to come.

"But I knew, dwarf or not, I was going to parent my child with the mentality that not everyone gets a trophy," he added in this interview. "You have to earn it."

Both Zach and Tori have been keeping Instagram followers well apprised of the status and the progress of little Jackson.

Jeremy Roloff Birthday Tribute: Audrey Sure Loves Him A Lot!

THIS JUST IN:

Audrey Roloff is a very big fan of Jeremy Roloff.

This is stating the obvious, of course, mostly because Audrey and Jeremy are married with an adorable baby girl.

Getting Silly with Ember

But let's be honest:

There are plenty of couples in this situation who don't exact exude affection for one another, right?

Jeremy and Audrey got married in September of 2014, though, and have basically spent the past four and a half years gushing over each other in one sense or another.

What's their secret?

Reciting their marriage vows during sex, of course! (We're not kidding. Click on that link to see what we mean.)

But also just being open and honest and turning their lives over to a higher power.

This sums up the basic themes of nearly every Jeremy or Audrey social media post, such as the #3sentencelovestory Audrey wrote about Jeremy in February.

Riding Jeremy

It went as follows:

We were freshman in college when our good friends set up on a blind date before church, and from that day forward he was patiently persistent, I was stubborn and guarded.

After a two year friendship. he said "will you be mine" up on the railroad tracks, and that's when we began 3-years of writing each other letters on our type writers while we endured a long distance relationship.

Our long-distance relationship ended in an unbreakable covenant on September 20th 2014, and since then we have continued to grow in oneness, Godliness, and more in love... always more.

So anyway: This is all a long preamble to say that Jeremy Roloff turns 28 years old today.

And, as you might expect, Audrey had some very nice things to say in honor of this occasion.

Jeremy Roloff and Ember Jean in Maui

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you babe (and happy 8 months to this cute little girlsie!)," wrote Audrey to open her birthday message, adding early in her caption:

"You are far more than I could have ever imagined a husband to be Jeremy. You are the love of my life, my best friend, my adventure partner, my confidant, my tech support, my comedic relief and so much more!

"From the beginning you’ve had such a strong connection with our daughter that makes my eyes water."

Audrey continued to focus on Jeremy as a father, which is the most important role he'll ever have, of course:

"I love seeing how engaged and content you are just playing with her, talking to her, and making her laugh.

"You are a steadfast and faithful man of God and you challenge me to be the best version of who God has called me to be."

Audrey Roloff, Jeremy Roloff, and Ember Jean in Maui

Audrey and Jeremy actually met on a blind date, an occasion Jeremy wrote about back in January.

"It’s been a wild and unexpected eight years," Jeremy said at the time, adding a few months ago:

"We never get to choose where we end up, our daily choices choose for us. When we are old and grey I imagine the greatest thing will be looking back at the love story we have written."

And this is how Audrey wrapped up her birthday tribute to the man she has known for well over a decade:

I am constantly amazed at your wisdom, and continually grateful for your humility and strength in leading our family. Thank you for loving us so well babe. ‘If it’s half as good as the half we’ve known, here’s Hail! to the rest of the road.”

I love you Farmer.

Pretty sweet stuff, huh?

We'd like to also send our best birthday wishes at this time to Jeremy Roloff, so here we go:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JEREMY ROLOFF!

Little People, Big World Recap: The (Parenthood) Struggle is Real

At this point in their parenting lives, Audrey and Jeremy Roloff are experts.

To the extent that any relatively new mother or father can be an expert, that is.

Audrey is even out there offering advice to other women in similar situations.

Audrey Roloff Baby Picture

But let's rewind about eight months, shall we?

That's what Little People, Big World did on Tuesday night by airing an episode that was filmed not long after Ember Jean entered the world in September of last year.

As previously detailed, Audrey suffered from frequent bouts of mastitis - an infection of the breast tissue that is painful and that also makes breastfeeding very difficult - shortly after giving birth.

Moreover, as we learned on this installment of the TLC series, Ember was born with tongue ties that required surgery so as not to prevent her from feeding properly.

"She's just so young, and we're already having to do something that hurts her," Jeremy said on air last night, referring to exercises he and Audrey had to do with Ember to keep the cut tongue ties from healing again.

A New Family

It was a challenge for Matt Roloff, too, having to watch his children struggle with their newborn.

"Seeing your kid hurt when you don't want them to hurt, that's a challenging time," Matt told the camera, adding:

"But seeing my kids go through it, now you understand the heartache your mother and I went through when you were coming through the rags."

Back in November, Audrey candidly told Instagram followers about these breastfeeding problems early on.

She confessed in a lengthy post that her condition really took a toll on her mentally for awhile.

"l always thought breastfeeding was a choice," she wrote on Instagram late last year.

She continued:

"People would often ask me if l was going to breastfeed when I was pregnant and l always answered with a determined yes. But after Ember was born, l realized that for some people, it’s not a choice.

"My breastfeeding journey has not been easy.

"After sharing with you all a little bit about the struggles l have had feeding Ember, l realized that so many of you have gone through, or are currently going through, similar pains, heart aches, and challenges."

Life on Their Farm

Ember had trouble putting on weight over the first few weeks of her existence, but Audrey pushed through her pain, Jeremy supported her throughout and here the family is now:

Happy and healthy all around.

"l was reminded that even though this journey still poses its challenges, being able to feed my daughter from my own body brings me incomparable joy," Audrey said when Ember was about two months old.

She laster said that that she hopes her story can encourage any other new moms having difficulty breastfeeding.

Elsewhere on this episode, Zach and Tori struggled to sleep train Jackson... Matt webt to work on a fun solution... and Amy looked forward to her birthday.

Audrey Roloff Faces Backlash for "Inappropriate" Beach Photos of Baby Daughter

Audrey Roloff is not known for stirring up controversy.

Yes, early in her reality show career, the Little People, Big World star received some flak about posing naked in a bathtub, mostly because she has built a reputation as being a rather staunch Christian.

This incident took place in August of 2016.

With Her Precious Daughter

Since then, Audrey has mostly just used her Instagram page as a way to gush about three things:

  1. Her faith.
  2. Her husband.
  3. And, now that she's been a mother for about eight months, her daughter Ember Jean.

When Audrey does create outrage online, it's typically due to something she said regarding these loved ones or her religion.

For example, Roloff (deservedly perhaps?) heard it from many followers a few days ago after an episode of Little People, Big World aired in which she labeled baby formula as "sinful."

We can understand why lots of people did not react favorably to that terminology.

But we most definitely cannot fathom why so many trolls out there are dragging Audrey all over the place for her latest set of social media photos.

One is posted above and the other below.

Audrey Roloff on the Beach

They were snapped of the relatively new mother during a recent trip to Hawaii... and they're adorable, right?!?

They feature Audrey and Ember at total peace and contentment on the beach.

At least that's how we interpreted the images.

However, others on the Internet have sadly focused on Ember's lack of clothing and actually given Audrey a hard time for sharing pictures of her naked child online.

"WTH, Auds, put a bathing suit on her!" one disgusted Internet user wrote in reply to this image, while another labeled it as "inappropriate" and still another went as far as to call it "pornographic."

That's just crazy talk, in our opinion, and it says a lot more about the person writing it than about Audrey herself.

Roloffs in Hawaii

But one comment did hit home a little more accurately.

One person noted that the pictures are harmless and cute, but that there are "pervs" on the Web that may look at them the "wrong way," encouraging Audrey to be aware of such gross individuals when posting such snapshots.

We can sadly see that.

Roloff, to her credit, is not letting the misguided haters get her down.

She shared a lengthy caption with these pictures that summed up her take on motherhood so far.

A Perfect Setting

"This was an evening of undistracted playfulness with our little girl. Splashing in the ocean and digging in the sand," opened Audrey, adding:

"I think it was C.S. Lewis that said, 'Children aren’t a distraction from more important work. They are the most important work.' 

"I’ll admit it. I’m a heroic multitasker. And although this might be a skill worthy of praise in our culture, it’s a tendency I’m trying to fight against. I want to be more present, more tuned-in, and more alive in each moment, task, or encounter.

"Especially when it comes to motherhood."

She concluded:

I don’t want to model busyness, I want my life to reflect discipline, priorities, and healthy rhythms of rest. I want my daughter to know by my actions that raising her is a privellage and a blessing, not a burden.

Moms how do you fight agaisnt the temptaion to multitask?!

This isn't the first time Audrey has reached out to her fellow moms.

Do you gave a response to her question here, ladies?

Jeremy Roloff Details Daughter’s Scary Doctor Visit, Gives Thanks

Jeremy Roloff and Audrey Roloff just recently returned from a trip to Hawaii.

As you might imagine, the vacation was filled with beautiful sunsets, walks on the beach, quality time with their daughter and even a bit of midriff revealed by Audrey.

By multiple social media accounts, it sounds like the Little People, Big World stars had a great time.

Roloffs in Hawaii

With the exception of what sort of scary evening, that is.

Late Friday, Jeremy took to Instagram and shared the image above.

It's a gorgeous snapshot that features himself, his wife and their precious baby, who is about eight months old.

But Jeremy frightened followers by detailing one incident during the vacation in which Ember Jean had to be rushed to the doctor's office.

"Our trip is almost over, and what a trip it’s been!" Jeremy wrote to open his caption to this photo.

Precious Roloffs

He then turned a little more serious:

"Last night however, Ember came down with a random fever. It escalated high enough to take her in and get checked out - Audrey and I both took note that it was the nicest clinic.

"They said she appears to be fine, and must be fighting some virus and to keep her hydrated. So we did, and she appears to be on the up and up."

Phew.

Thank goodness this was no big deal in the end.

All parents of little kids can relate to the horrible, helpless feeling of a young one not feeling well and not comprehending what is going on.

A Perfect Setting

Just as his wife so often does, Jeremy went on to cite his faith and compare his situation in this case with that of Jesus Christ back in the day.

How so? Well...

"Man, now I know what it feels like when your child comes down with something - out of love you want to trade places with them," Jeremy added, concluding as follows:

"It makes me thank Jesus, because that’s exactly what he did. Trades places with us - only death is far more eternal than a fever."

Yes it is; far more eternal.

A Snuggle from Dad

Jeremy and Audrey starred in last week's new episode of Little People, Big World, which chronicled the latter's labor and delivery.

The stars have been extremely candid about parenthood, detailing the ups, the downs and everything in between over the past several months.

We very much appreciate their honesty throughout this major life change.

And we're so very relieved that Ember is doing okay. She really is SUCH a cutie, don't you think?

Give her a big hug from us at The Hollywood Gossip, okay, guys? Thanks!

Audrey Roloff Details "Empowering" Delivery Experience, Asks Fans for a Favor

Audrey Roloff gave birth on Tuesday night.

Okay, not quite.

As all Little People, Big World fans know quite well, Audrey Roloff really gave birth in mid-September.

Ember Jean: First Photo!

But the TLC series on which Audrey has risen to fame took fans behind the scenes of this miraculous experience this week, documenting the labor that led to Ember Jean's entrance into the world.

It was pretty special to watch.

Now, in a new Instagram post, Audrey has provided followers with even more details about what has to be the most memorable day of her existence.

It started with her afraid that she would be so long past her due date that it would be unsafe to have a natural delivery.

"This was the hardest and most empowering day of my life," opened Amber as a caption to the image above, adding:

"When I went into active labor at 2:30 in the morning I quickly reached into my nightstand drawer, grabbed a sharpie, and wrote ALWAYS MORE on my hand."

Jeremy with Audrey and Ember, Barefoot in the Kitchen

This may sound like a bunch of hooey coming from some people, but we buy it coming from Audrey.

She has never shied away from discussing her faith or from what this saying means to her, as she did again here.

"These words have propelled so much of my life, and they have become my mission - to inspire women to ALWAYS believe in the MORE that is within them. 

"I knew that this day, more than any other day, I needed to be reminded that I ALWAYS had MORE strength, endurance, and hope through Christ."

Roloff continued to get personal with her Instagram followers, writing:

"During labor, these words increased my faith and permeated my body with unexplainable peace and power.

"Every now and then during contractions I would catch a glimpse of my hand, clenched tightly to Jeremy’s, and I would see those words, blurred by sweat and tears - ALWAYS MORE."

Audrey and Jeremy Hold Ember Jean (Above)

As any mother knows, there's nothing that can come close to giving birth.

It's an experience unlike any other.

And Audrey used this motto to get her through it:

"Always more strength through contractions, always more hope when I felt discouraged, always more purpose through the pain, always more perseverance to endure, always more opportunity to be courageous, always more reason to trust, and always more victory through Christ.

"I remember saying them outloud repeatedly just before I stared to push."

And then Ember was in her arms.

Amazing. The whole thing really is pretty amazing.

Audrey, Ember and Jeremy Roloff

"Guess what you guys...." Ember added. "The hospital room that i delivered Ember in was room 320 are you kidding me God?!? ah. Always more is based on Ephesians 3:20.

"You can’t make this stuff up!!!"

You can try to profit off it, however.

As we've cited in the past, Audrey transitioned against here from honesty about her faith to an attempt to sell her followers on something she makes money off.

"Because ALWAYS MORE has helped me through some of the toughest trials in my life, I created a 7 Day Always More Devotional that I hope might encourage you through whatever hard circumstances you might be facing today!" she concluded on her page, adding:

"Click the link in my bio to download it for FREE! ALWAYS believe in the MORE that is with you. #alwaysmore #emberjean."

Audrey Roloff request

Now, yes, the Devotional is free.

But as we point out above, Roloff asks for your personal information in order to send it along.

And you know she'll use this to include you on her newsletter and to make other offerings, many of which will ask for money.

Is this just an example of Audrey being an entrepreneur and it's all good?

Is her heart in the right place and she just wants to help your religious efforts.

Or is this pretty tacky, writing a lot about God and then using her birthing experience to build up her email database?

Audrey Roloff Outrages Fans Over Baby Formula Diss

Over the first few weeks of her foray into motherhood, Audrey Roloff was very candid about her difficulty breastfeeding.

The Little People, Big World star talked at length about her battle against mastitis and how VERY painful this condition caused it to be when she brought baby Ember up to her chest to suckle.

Or even when she tried to pump.

Precious Roloffs

"I can't believe I'm saying this, but the pain that I've experienced while breast feeding has been comparable to unmedicated labor contractions," Audrey said last fall, adding:

"Inevitably, all of this has left me feeling like I am failing my baby, frustrated, discouraged, and heart ached."

We felt terrible for Roloff at the time and we still do. That must have been awful.

On this past Tuesday's episode of her family's reality show, however, Audrey elaborated on just why this experience was so awful for her and... well...

... we feel a tiny bit less bad because her view on the topic seems so effed up.

Acknowledging the aforementioned challenge she had with breastfeeding early on, Audrey said the following in a Little People, Big World confessional:

"We just don't have feeding figured out yet. It just didn't come easy for me, my body, for her."

A Perfect Setting

That part of the admission was fine and understandable.

And also very relatable; plenty of new mothers and new human beings need awhile to figure the whole breastfeeding thing out.

During a checkup just a week after giving birth, though, Audrey was told by a doctor that, if her baby wasn't getting enough sustenance via breast milk, then Audrey and Jeremy would need to supplement with formula.

This is also something very common among new parents.

But Audrey simply was NOT having it.

And her reason for why has angered quite a few people on the World Wide Web.

"I was very adamant about breastfeeding exclusively. Formula is like a sin," she actually said.

It does sound like Audrey eventually gave in ("I never thought I would do that, but at the same time I need to feed my baby so we have to do it."), which at last makes us breathe a sigh of relief.

At least she wasn't extreme enough in this view to actually harm her child.

Audrey Roloff with the Hug

But... formula is like a sin?!? Excuse her?!?

As you might imagine, many social media users were outraged that she would utter such a thing.

"'Formula is a sin,' girl shut the f--k up," one fan Tweeted succinctly, while another said:

"Did she say, 'Formula was a sin?' I want to slap her."

And one fan pointed out, "Oh Audrey, formula is not a sin. Fed baby is all that matters."

audrey critique

Seriously, right?

If Audrey feels this way, we guess she's entitled to that somewhat ridiculous opinion. (Okay, totally ridiculous opinion.)

But to come out and make such a public statement is casting quite the judgmental net over millions of women, many of whom have no choice but to use formula and all of whom just want what is best for their child.

What is sinful about that?!?

Audrey, it should be noted, has not commented on this controversy or issued any sort of apology.

With Ember

The TLC personality is very open about her faith, as anyone who followers her on Instagram knows well.

She often tries to be encouraging to her fellow mothers, too, recently writing a message online that concluded as follows:

"Moms... You're not the only one who has been criticized or glared at for doing something wrong. I have too. You’re not the only one.

"You’re not alone. Even though you might feel like it sometimes, we are all figuring out this motherhood thing as we go.

"So I’ll be here.

"Sharing what I’ve learned, where I’ve failed and how the Lord is encouraging, empowering, and equipping me as I embrace all that it means to be a mother."

It's a nice sentiment.

But perhaps Roloff should have considered how her "sin" talk would make these same mothers feel before she made the remark.

Little People, Big World Recap: Look Who’s Here! (Just a Tad Late)

There was a special delivery on Tuesday night's episode of Little People, Big World.

And we mean this literally.

Aud, Jer and Ember

Before getting to the main storyline of the installment, we'll talk for a moment about Amy Roloff.

She's been the most central figure of the new season, having said on previous installments that and she isn't sure about her future with Chris Marek.

This time around, she and Chris were on a vacation when she got mad him for abandoning her.

"I'm definitely enjoying the trip, but we did get into an argument," Roloff told the camera at one point, explaining what happened:

"When we were having dinner, he just left, and he was gone for a long time, and I was left by myself. I had no idea where he was, what we was doing."

Marek eventually returned and shrugged off Amy's complaint initially.

He just want to speak to some friends. What was the big deal?

"My head was in a different place when I walked away from the table," he said, adding that he apologized and the two are now on good terms.

"There's some fundamentals in a relationship, and the two that we've got nailed are trust and communication.

"We trust each other 100 percent and we communicate well, so that's part of the reason it's going so well."

It really is. The couple has now been together for over a year.

Amy Roloff on a Motorcycle

But enough about an old relationship.

Let's talk about a brand new one... as in, the relationship Audrey Roloff formed last night with daughter Ember Jean, who took her sweet and adorable time entering the world.

The episode was filmed many months ago, so we caught up with Audrey and Jeremy while they were anxiously awaiting their daughter's birth.

The thing, is she was late.

"It's a really unsettling feeling just knowing that any day I could wake up and go into labor ... and just knowing that the most pain I've ever experienced is right around the corner," Audrey admitted.

We're sure millions of women can relate.

She added: "Mentally and emotionally, the toll it takes on you is kind of exhausting."

Audrey Roloff, Ember Jean, Jeremy Roloff

As the days continued to tick away and Audrey remained pregnant, she touched on another problem this raised:

"My plan is to have a natural childbirth, but if I go 12 days past my due date, then that's when the doctors will want to induce," she revealed.

"I don't want to be induced, so I'm just really hoping and praying that she'll come before then."

As fans of the family and the series must know by now, Audrey gave birth on September 10, a full 10 days past her due date.

This did allow her to have a natural birth, however.

The night she went into labor, Audrey suffered excruciating contractions ... without any kind of epidural or painkiller.

OUCH!

Buy My Shirts!

"The closest thing it feels like to me is someone taking a chainsaw to your stomach," she said.

(Have we mentioned of late that all women are total and complete superheroes?)

Despite doubting herself an hour into delivery (I kept thinking, I'm not sure if my body is going to be able to do this), Audrey pushed on and pushed through and pushed her first child out.

Ember was born at 9:40 a.m., weighing 7.13 lbs. and measuring 20.25 inches long.

"Seeing her for the first time was crazy," Audrey said. "Just so exhausted and so full of joy. ... It's just a miracle the way it goes down."

Audrey Roloff Shows Off Flat Tummy on Ember Jean’s First Beach Trip!

Audrey Roloff is once again posing in swimwear. This time, she's showing off her post-baby body and flat tummy in Maui.

That's not even the biggest deal, because Auj and Jer aren't vacationing alone.

Take a look below to see baby Ember Jean's very first visit to the beach.

Audrey announced the trip on Instagram, saying:

"OK friends, we are headed to Maui in a few days… which means a six-hour flight with a baby still recovering from an ear infection. Eek!"

Fortunately, she has the remedy for that ear infection.

"Lots of cuddles, tea tree oil, Frankincense, garlic oil, antibiotics, and prayer. Hoping she can kick this thing quick!"

The proud mother has since updated fans with five photos from Ember's very first visit to the beach, captioning the images:

"Ember got a sandy bum and salty toes for the first time!"

(Looking great, Audrey!)

Auj gushes about Ember's time at the beach, just one of Ember Jean's recent milestones.

"She loved it! especially the taste of sand..."

Babies learn about their environment by putting things in their mouths, and babies can be fascinated by the strange gritty texture of sand.

"We are cherishing this much needed sunshine and time as a family away from the tyranny of the urgent."

The Tyranny of the Urgent is a book from the '60s by a man named Charles Hummel, who writes about taking time to do what is important, because so often things that are urgent take priority.

Audrey says that they're all loving Maui.

"We have such a tender spot in our hearts for this island in the middle of the pacific."

Like any social media savvy person (especially those who advertise their business on Instagram), Audrey knows how to court social media engagement from followers.

So she asks a question:

"Have any of you ever been to Maui?!"

She then invites comments.

"What are your favorite beaches, waterfalls, or things to do!"

Finally, Auj includes some tags.

Jeremy also chimes in with a message.

"Aloha from Maui! The family and I are enjoying our time away from the mainland."

Don't worry -- they love Roloff Farms and they'll be back, but it's always good to get away, right?

"Traveling with a kid is no joke though!"

It gets easier as your child gets older. But still, vacationing as a parent is never the same.

"Vacations look a lot different than before. However, it’s been so fun doing things for the first time again with Ember."

Ember is still new to the world, but she's really enjoying the beach.

"She’s such a happy girl."

Ember is too cute, folks.

Jeremy ends his post with a surprising suggestion.

"Last night the thought came to us. Maybe we should do a Maui meetup! Who’s in Maui and would be interested?"

Honestly, fan meet-ups can go extremely well or they can be disastrous. 

In the mean time, though some fans have wondered if Auj and Jer are trying to duck away from the family to avoid Audrey's rumored feud with Jacob Roloff, it seems more likely that this was planned long before she skipped his engagement party.

We hope that Ember has been enjoying herself.

Audrey Roloff Skips Jacob Engagement Party, Fuels Feud Rumors

Audrey Roloff often posts about faith and family.

But while the Little People, Big World star clearly has a great deal of the former, we're definitely starting to believe talk that she has some issues with the latter.

A Few Roloffs

Specifically, we're pretty certain Audrey and Jacob Roloff do not get along.

Like, at all.

Chatter over whether Audrey and her brother-in-law hate each other started circulating in December, back when the Internet realized that they never appear in photos together.

Like, ever.

This is especially unusual when you consider how often the Roloffs hang out and how often Audrey shares pictures of herself and her loved ones.

So, we got to thinking: Why would Audrey and Jacob not get along?

And there are actually a couple obvious reasons:

1. Audrey is VERY open about her strong faith and religion, while Jacob is either agnostic or atheist. He certainly isn't a practicing Catholic.

2. Jacob is like Holden Caulfield in Catcher in the Rye: he hates phonies. Remember, two years ago he quit Little People, Big World because he couldn't stand the scripted nature of the series.

How does point number-two relate to Audrey?

She's faced some scrutiny from followers who seem to think she exploits her religion to make money.

So this all brings us to the latest reason to believe there really is bad blood between Audrey and Jacob.

Over this past weekend, the family hosted an engagement party for Jacob and Isabel Rock, about four months after the former proposed to the latter during a trip abroad.

And you can guess who didn't show up, right?

Based on photographs shared on Instagram at least, that is?

Yup: Audrey Roloff.

"We celebrated Jacob and Izzy yesterday! What a great engagement party it was!" Jacob wrote as a caption to the first image in this article.

As you can see above, he's posing with mother Amy, brother Jacob, daughter Ember and... that's it.

Could Audrey simply have had other plans? Absolutely.

Could she even have been at the gathering, just not in this picture? Yes.

But there's starting to be a pattern here.

Considering the divergent personalities of Audrey and Jacob, it's not far-fetched that they wouldn't get along. Nor would it even be that huge of a deal.

Who says all in-laws have to get along perfectly well?

We're just noting here that there's yet another example of a rivalry within one of television's most beloved families.

Perhaps Audrey and Jacob will work it out, perhaps not.

Perhaps there's some smoke here, but no fire... although we doubt it because all talk of a feud could be so easily solved if the stars simply posed in the same picture together.

Not even side by side. Just in the same frame!

Until that happens, however, we'll continue to speculate and Internet users will continue to ask questions.

That's just how this all works.

Audrey Roloff Sends Inspiring Message to Fellow Moms

Audrey Roloff recently ran through a list of seven things she loved about her daughter.

But while we're sure the Little People, Big World star could come up with an even longer list, she's actually here to talk about the one thing she hates about being a parent:

GUILT.

Audrey Roloff with the Hug

You know what she means, don't you, fellow parents around the Internet?

This is a topic Audrey has touched on in the past, writing to her Instagram followers at one point:

"I feel guilty sometimes for not being able to just stay in bed and play with [my daughter], or for putting her in the play gym to be entertained by the dangling animals instead of me."

That's silly, of course.

It's understandable and relatable, but still silly... because of course we cannot be with our kids at all times, tending to their every need 24/7.

In her latest Instagram post, Roloff again brings up the subject of guilt, but she does so in different manner.

The reality star tries to help other parents feel better about any one of a number of reasons why they may feel at the moment as if they messed something up with their child.

"Moms," Audrey opens simply, adding:

"You’re not the only one who cut your baby’s nail too shoot. You’re not the only one who had to watch countless YouTube tutorials to figure out how to properly baby wrap.

"You’re not the only one who didn’t know what to do when your baby smacked her head on the hardwood for the first time."

We can see what Audrey is doing here and we admire the effort.

We'd just like to point out that she could have written this note to Moms AND Dads -- because there are plenty of men out there who take parenting very seriously and who feel all the the feelings Roloff is describing in this caption.

Which continues as follows:

You’re not the only one who didn’t know it’s not safe to put your baby in a puffy coat in the car seat.

You’re not the only one who didn’t know you’re supposed to start brushing your baby’s teeth from the moment you see them emerge.

You’re not the only one who is constantly googling what foods to give your baby, and how much they should be eating or how much they should be sleeping.

Audrey and Jeremy in Bed

It's all so very true.

Being a parent is like trying to avoid one landmine after another, on a near daily basis.

It's impossible to ever relax, to ever feel as though you have a full grasp on what is best for your son(s) or daughter(s) because a new challenge or obstacle is always just around the corner.

Scroll down to see how Roloff concluded her post...

With Ember

You’re not the only one who has been criticized or glared at for doing something wrong. I have too. You’re not the only one. You’re not alone. Even though you might feel like it sometimes, we are all figuring out this motherhood thing as we go.

So I’ll be here.

Sharing what I’ve learned, where I’ve failed and how the Lord is encouraging, empowering, and equipping me as I embrace all that it means to be a mother.

Tag a mom friend that you want to encourage.

Audrey and husband Jeremy welcomed Ember Jean into the world last September.

Both have been open about how difficult it was at first, especially for Audrey, who suffered a great deal of pain while breastfeeding.

But here they are, having overcome those initial fears and tears and confident enough to pass along all they've learned to other new parents across the world.

Once again, we appreciate Audrey's intention here.

Next time, though, she can just go ahead and address both genders.
