Audrey Roloff is enjoying every moment of her life that encapsulates her role as a mom of two. That includes taking pictures of the sweet moments when the kids cuddle in bed together.
Audrey Roloff, 28, is soaking in every blissful moment she gets from having two children in her life. Luckily, she shares a lot of them with fans, too.
On Thursday, Audrey took to Instagram to share several snaps of her daughter Ember cozying up with her newborn baby brother Bode. The post is found below.
Jeremy and Audrey's latest addition
Jeremy and Audrey welcomed Bode James on January 8. The couple showed off their firstborn son only a couple of days later to the delight of their many followers.
Big sister Ember Jean, two, was also thrilled as well. And it seems she's still not over the fact that she has a baby brother based on the latest pics shared by her mom.
Ember's sweet affection with Bode
Over five slides, we see as Ember secures Bode's neck as the two lay down on a white bed wearing their PJs. Audrey kisses Bode on the forehead in the first shot.
In the second girl, she's wearing a big smile on her face as she looks up. The last two slides show the siblings laying down on their back, side by side. Audrey kisses Bode again in the final slide.
In her caption, Audrey wrote in part, "Ember just loves her baby brother so much." Fans in the comment section also couldn't get enough of the adorable brother-sister duo.

We took some photos of these two yesterday and the sweetness was just too much😍 Jer got all the “good” photos on his camera, but I couldn’t resist snapping a few on my iPhone too. Swipe right for more cuteness😭Ember just loves her baby brother so much. I wish I could push the instant reply button for all the hilarious and precious things she says. Meanwhile, Jer and I are just in awe that we have TWO KIDS!🤯 We are so grateful that God has entrusted us to love and raise these little blessings❤️
The first time Ember held Bode
Right after Bode was born, fans also got to see how Ember reacted when she first met her new brother. Audrey dubbed the hospital "one of [her] favorite moments ever" in her caption.
In the sweet photo, Ember sits next to her mom, who has an arm underneath to support the newborn. Ember also has her tiny arm wrapped around baby Bode as she looks down at him.

One of my favorite moments ever😭Ember meeting Bode for the first time😍She is just the sweetest big sister already. We took some videos that I’m sure we’ll share in our stories soon. Jer and I can’t stop smiling and laughing at the things she says about him and to him. She’s so eager to take care of him and give him lots of lovies💗Postpartum has been hard on my body, but cuddling with these precious little loves makes my heart so full. What an honor it is to be their mama.
Audrey details labor with Bode
Earlier this week, Audrey gave a detailed account of the labor and delivery she went through when having her second child. It was pretty dramatic as Audrey didn't expect Bode on his due date.
Alongside the raw picture of Audrey holding Bode for the first time, she explained that she waited until the last minute that day to go to the hospital despite having contractions.

The morning of January 8th I went in for my 40 week appointment🤰🏼 and I was 3cm dialated but not having contractions or any signs of labor yet... other than Bode feeling like he was going to fall out of me he was so low🤪 I just assumed he would come late because Ember was 12 days late🤷🏼♀️ But since it was my due date there was a little bit of extra hopefulness that just maybe... 🙏🏻 When I got home from my apt. I snapped a pic of my 40 week belly and posted it saying, “Happy due date baby boy, you can come out now.” Little did I know... I was just a few hours away from holding our son for the first time👶🏼 I had lots of Braxton Hicks all throughout my third trimester so I wasn’t really paying much attention to how consistent they were this time around. I just figured I’d know for sure this time around when it was the real deal. But with Bode it wasn’t so obvious🤔 Around 4:00pm I was having lots of consistent Braxton Hicks contractions, but they were a little more uncomfortable than normal. By 4:30 I thought what the heck... I guess I’ll start timing these just to see🤷🏼♀️They were about 4 minutes apart. “Just in case” I went up stairs and put the last minute things in my hospital bag and change my clothes. While upstairs the contractions turned into the kind where you have to stop and focus on breathing. At 5 pm I called my mom and said she better come over to be with Ember “just in case.” I still wasn’t convinced😂 My mom showed up at 5:30 and at this point my contractions where about 3-4 min apart and painful enough for me to tell Jer, “I think Bode might be born on his due date.” My labor with Ember was pretty fast, so we knew we wanted to air on the side of leaving sooner than later. We ended up leaving right after my mom arrived. Straight into rush hour traffic🙄 25 minutes of laboring in the truck while in stop and go traffic🤦🏼♀️ Jer may have run a few red lights🤫 We checked into labor and delivery at the hospital at 6:30 and I was 8 cm dialated🤯 ... Bode was born at 7:36 sooooo from the time we got there, things happened fast! Click the link in my bio for the rest of the story! #bodejames #btspodcast
When she finally made her way out of the house, she was going through labor for 25 minutes in traffic before she arrived at the hospital. She delivered Bode just over an hour later.
