Jeremy Roloff's Wife Audrey Shows off Her Morning Routine with Their Son & Daughter in Photos
"Little People, Big World" star Jeremy Roloff's wife Audry offered their fans an insight on their morning routine with their son and daughter with adorable pictures.
Jeremy Roloff and his wife Audry welcomed a baby boy named Bode on January 8 earlier this year, and they frequent Instagram to keep fans posted with the newborn's progress.
Just recently, Audry took to the social platform to give fans a sneak peek into the Roloff household's morning ritual with snaps of the mother of two holding her darling angels in her lap.
THE MORNING ROUTINE
The reality star announced alongside the adorable snap that their daily morning routine starts with putting on fuzzy slippers and reading the Jesus Storybook Bible while snuggled up in their favorite chair.
"I love having both kids on my lap while I read❤️"
She further revealed that little Ember has this habit of holding on to her infant sister, Bode, by her hands and toes as the family snuggles in the cozy chair every morning.
Although the 28-year-old reality star was very excited about her infant son, she has also been candid about the health issues she has been facing after giving birth to her second child.

Just keepin it real over here 👋🏻 while this past week has been full of newborn snuggles and heart melting moments... it’s also been really hard. With Ember and Bode I had really great pregnancies and labor/delivery experiences (will share Bode’s birth story on the podcast @behindthescenespodcast soon😍) but once that 4th trimester hits😅 my body just gets hit hard with all the things... Thankfully this time I could draw from past experience and fought off getting mastitis 5 days postpartum like last time🙈 Still... my milk comes in fast and furious, both my babies chomped my nipples to shreds on day one, and my milk is the brevé kind🤣 so engorgement is at least 5x my normal bra size... Thankfully, Mr. 9 pounder Bode boy is a much more efficient eater than Ember girl was (he was already back at his birth weight by 5 days old!) Along with the booby pains... there’s the stitches and other pains “down there”, the body aches/light headedness (I hemmoraged pretty bad this time) the pelvic bones that feel broken, the postpartum contractions (so much worse with second baby😆) sore muscles from labor, etc. I share all this because I don’t think enough people share about their postpartum journey. We are so excited to share birth stories and document our whole pregnancies but then postpartum hits and nothing... I wish someone would have better prepared me the first time around or been more honest about all the after-birth pains. So here I am 👋🏻showing up with my 1 week postpartum belly exposed and telling you my body hurts. But despite the physical pains, I know these weeks of forced slow-down are exactly what my body and heart needs. REST. So if you’re in this season of life too, give yourself permission to rest and heal. I’m letting go of the pressure to rush back into working out, my social life, household chores, my pre-pregnancy clothes, or any kind of commitment that conflicts with recovery and rest. Something that’s very hard for us enneagram 8’s to adhere too 🤪 I have to remind myself every day that rest is one of the most productive things I can do right now🙏🏻 So I’ll be here with a baby on my chest, in milk stained pj’s, embracing JOMO (the joy of missing out)✌🏻
Pregnancy can be tough on any couple, but Audry took to Instagram to talk about the post-birth journey as she believed that people don't talk about this side of pregnancy.

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
Bode's birth was a relative surprise to the picture-perfect couple, as they had expected Bode to be late just like his elder sister Ember. It was entirely unexpected for the couple that he arrived on the exact due date.
Just a few hours after Audry returned from her 40-week appointment, with no signs of labor, she was getting ready to head out to the hospital when her contractions started getting intense.

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🤣
An hour after the reality star had arrived at the hospital for the second time that day, Bode was born at 7:36 p.m. Audry then felt the need to share the fantastic journey of January 8, 2020, with her fans over at Instagram.
Even though the couple has just welcomed their second child together, the talks of expanding the family even further are already underway. According to a segment by "US Weekly," the couple has planned to have big a family as possible.
