Jeremy & Audrey Roloff from LPBW Celebrate Son Bode Turning One Month Old with Sweet New Photos
Baby Bode is growing up way too fast. Parents Jeremy and Audrey are already celebrating their son's one-month-old milestone, and they're doing so in the sweetest way.
Bode is proving to be an easy baby so far as dad Jeremy called him a "professional sleeper." He shared a photo holding Bode while sitting in front of silver balloons that spell out his son's name. The post is found below.
Bode's getting so big
Mom Audrey shared more heartwarming words for her celebration with a much lengthier caption. She also touched on how well Bode slept and added, in part:
"He smiles when we 'coo' at him and Ember asks me, 'You an owl mama?' The cute newborn outfits already don't fit him."
Celebrating one month
Audrey's first slide was the same as her husband's second. It showed Bode laying down on a white blanket with the numbers 1 to 12 printed around him in a circle to resemble a clock.
The word "months" was written just above numbers 6 to 8. At the top, a green wreath rested around the number one, signifying Bode's age. The tot wore a light maroon outfit.
Sister Ember joins in
The second slide was a closeup of the adorable baby whose red hair perfectly blended with his buttoned getup. In the last slide, little Ember made an appearance.
The two-year-old girl lay on the edge of the blanket and smile up at the camera while holding her baby brother's hand. Bode appeared to be awake for his photoshoot.

Big boy is one month old already! I can’t believe how sweet, calm, and cuddly he is❤️ Also, I didn’t know it was possible for newborns to sleep so well...😅I keep asking myself, is it a baby #2 thing, a boy thing, or a big baby thing? Not that Ember was a horrible sleeper, but it definitely took her a few months to figure out. Bode on the other hand wakes up once around 3 am with the most polite little grunts😂and then goes back to sleep until about 8! I honestly feel a little guilty about the amount of sleep we’ve been getting in this newborn phase... but my aching pelvic bones remind me to just accept the gift😉 “Mr. dude man” as Ember and Jer call him, loves to be held😍 He smiles when we “coo” at him and Ember asks me, “You an owl mama?” The cute newborn outfits already don’t fit him.🙈 We think he might have a twinge more red in his hair then Ember did, and it definitely looks like it’s gonna be curly🙏🏻but time will tell😉 Swipe to the last photo👉🏻Ember wanted to relieve her monthly photo days🤣
Audrey reveals her condition
The newborn's great sleeping habits are not just a plus for both his parents. For Audrey, in particular, it's a huge help for her Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction.
The mother-of-two revealed her condition earlier this week alongside a picture of her taking a stroll with Ember. "A walk around the farm is about all I can do these days," she wrote at the time.

A walk around the farm is about all I can do these days😅 (thank you symphysis pubis disfunction🙈) I’m really hoping my pelvic bones can heal back soon because I’m so eager to get Ember girl on skis this winter/spring⛷and I can’t wait to start running again!🏃🏽♀️Jer is training for a half, and it’s making me so jealous lately😫
Audrey details labor and birth
The 28-year-old had a troublesome delivery last month when she believed there was no way her son would come out on his due date. As such, she waited until the last minute to go to the hospital.
As a result, Audrey was in labor for 25 minutes while in traffic. Luckily, things went smoothly enough after that, and she welcomed her son on January 8 at 7:36 p.m.

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
She was able to go home a couple of days later and soon shared the joyful news with her followers online. We can't wait to see Bode grow to be big, healthy, and strong.
