Tori Roloff can’t believe how quickly the past year has flown by, and the Little People, Big World star got a little emotional as she posted a photo of her son, Jackson, as he celebrated his first birthday on Saturday, May 12.

“It was exactly one year ago today at 8:00am that this perfect 9 lb 1 oz 20.5 inch long baby entered our lives and changed it for the better,” she captioned an Instagram photo of her son with husband Zach Roloff lying on a blanket numbered for the first 12 months of his life.

It was exactly one year ago today at 8:00am that this perfect 9 lb 1 oz 20.5 inch long baby entered our lives and changed it for the better. This year has brought nothing but joy to our family and it’s all because of this guy right here. Taking this photo made me so emotional because it’s the last time I’ll set him down on this blanket to take his photo. The first of many things I have to let go of. My baby some how has turned into a little boy before our eyes and I have loved watching him grow. So here it goes. Our last monthly update! Jackson’s personality has really taken shape this month. And by golly he is hilarious. 😂 He is pulling himself up on anything he can reach and is so close to taking his first steps. 🚶🏻‍♂️ He loves his dad so much and yells at him from across the room if he isn’t paying attention. 🗣 Jackson helped celebrate both mom and dads birthdays this month and were interested to see what he does with his cake today! 🎂 Clapping is our new favorite thing and he loves when people clap with him. 👏🏼 Jackson spent his first whole day away from mom and dad. 😭 Baby j weighs 21 pounds and has 8 teeth! 😁 I love you so much bud. This year has gone by way too fast. You bring me such happiness and you have spoiled me as your mom. Happy birthday Jackson! ❤️ #babyjroloff #zandtpartyofthree

She then shared her last monthly update.

“Jackson’s personality has really taken shape this month. And by golly he is hilarious,” she wrote. “He is pulling himself up on anything he can reach and is so close to taking his first steps.”

Tori added that Jackson loves his dad so much that he “yells at him from across the room if he isn’t paying attention,” before revealing that “clapping is our new favorite thing and he loves when people clap with him.”

“I love you so much bud,” she concluded. “This year has gone by way too fast. You bring me such happiness and you have spoiled me as your mom. Happy birthday Jackson!”

The Roloffs were planning a family celebration on Saturday for Jackson, with his grandfather Matt Roloff sharing a photo of the baby on Instagram on Friday, May 11, and writing, “Shhhhh. Don’t tell him… spent the night shopping for his 1 yr birthday this Saturday. How fun is that. Enjoying being a grandpa. Now.. if I can just figure out [how] to get these things wrapped.”
