It’s as hard to believe for Audrey Roloff as it is for us, but her little daughter Ember Roloff is already almost a year old. The Little People, Big World stars recently went on two-week vacation to Michigan with Jeremy Roloff‘s family, and while they were there, they realized just how much their family has already accomplished, including all the exciting things that their baby has done. Not only did she start walking, sprout a few more teeth, and become the cutest little smiling baby around all in the span of their visit, but she also turned 11 months old, meaning her first birthday is just around the corner. And mama Auj is getting ready for the big day.

We are finally home after spending two weeks in Midwest! We celebrated Jer’s grandpas 90th birthday and fell in love with their cabin in the UP on Lake Michigan, biked around Mackinac Island with all Jer’s family, meet with our publisher in Grand Rapids, revealed the cover our of book🙀, and visited some good friends in Indy! We have had so much fun playing and working, visiting and exploring, and Ember was such a good little traveler!💗She loved hanging with all of her aunts and uncles, swimming in Lake Michigan, and stumbling around on the beach – determined to balance on her own. She took her first steps, cut 3 more teeth, loves blowing kisses, and she does this hilarious sassy squishy eye face when she’s eating (swipe right to watch the video🤣) Baby girlsie napped in motels, strollers, bike trailers, guest bedrooms, loving arms, mini-vans, and CEO offices. She was such a champ 🙌🏻 I can’t believe I have an 11 month old now?! LIKE HOW. Already time to start planning the first birthday party 😭 #journeyofjerandauj

Admittedly, though, she seems a little behind! “I can’t believe I have an 11 month old now?! LIKE HOW,” she wrote on social media. And honestly, we can’t really believe it either! We’ve been following this family for a while now, and it’s still crazy to us that the teens we met in Season 1 on TLC are now all grown up and raising kids of their own. But after watching the show since 2005, we don’t know that we’re ready to see Jeremy and Auj leave. The couple announced back in July that they won’t be filming anymore with the rest of the family. Instead, they’ve got other projects in the works — like a potential podcast for Audrey and the couple’s book, the cover of which they recently revealed on Instagram

Still, we’ll miss seeing the ins and outs of their lives on our screens — especially when it comes to planning things like Ember’s first birthday party! Hopefully, Auj will keep sharing sneak peeks into her family’s life online. We’re sure we’ll at least get plenty of pics when the big day rolls around. After all, how can you not share snapshots of that face? She’s just too cute.
