Zach and Tori Roloff Celebrate Son’s Milestone (See New Photos!!!!!!)

Time is already flying for Zach Roloff and Tori Roloff.

On Monday, the Little People, Big World stars took to Instagram in celebration of their son’s first milestone birthday.

He’s now one month old! Can you believe it?!?

The popular couple welcomed their first child into the world on May 12 and have talked openly about little Jackson ever since.

They’ve gushed over his presence in their lives, of course, while also telling fans that the newborn is, indeed, just like his father:

He was born with achondroplasia, the gene for dwarfism.

Because he grew up with “name-calling” and was always in the “back of the pack,” Zach understands how this condition will affect his son.

“You have to encourage a dwarf child a little more because it will take them five steps to do what others can do in two,” Roloff explained to People Magazine last month.

Adult males with Jackson’s condition grow to be an average of four feet, four inches tall – but the baby is measuring “normal” height at the moment.

He’s also incredibly cute and precious!

“Jackson is one month old today!” Tori wrote as a caption to the following image, giving followers a few more details about her son:

“He is eating and growing like a champ, loves watching soccer with daddy, starting to find his voice, sleeps 5-6 hour stretches at night, loves his Uncle Jacob, hates having his diaper changed, tolerates bath time.

“Love you so much baby J!”

Zach shared the same photo and message on his Instagram page, along with the hashtag “#zandtpartyofthree.”

In various interviews and on social media, the Roloffs have acknowledged how Jackson will require extra attention as he gets older, but have also said they have no regrets.

They knew there would be a fifty percent chance that their child would be born this way.

“Dwarf or not, I was going to parent my child with the mentality that not everyone gets a trophy. You have to earn it,” Zach has said, adding overall:

“We’re super excited… We’ll hope to just give him a healthy, happy life and support him in every way.

“He can experience as much of the world as Tori and me have been able to and hopefully much more!”

Meanwhile, expecting aunt Audrey posted a new image of her and her nephew on Instagram.

She’s clearly pretty darn smitten.

“Loving this little nephew so much,” wrote Jeremy Roloff’s wife as a caption to the above snapshot.

“I can’t believe it’s already been a month since we got to meet him for the first time.

“You are a precious child of God baby Jackson and we cannot wait for you to meet your cousin in just a couple months!”

Indeed, Audrey is due to give birth early this fall. She’s expecting a girl.

And while we’ve wondered whether a sibling rivalry between Jeremy and Zach is brewing as a result of these babies and their family farm and who may one day inherit to property, all family members just seem over the moon with happiness these days.

As one would expect when tiny human beings are involved.

“This makes it so much more real…oh my goodness we are going to have a daughter?” Audrey wrote in a caption on Instagram in April, adding at the time:

“This whole pregnancy we thought it was a boy up until the last 3 weeks all signs pointed towards girl… so we both wore pink today, and we were right!

“Baby girl I hope and pray you have a head of curls and a heart of gold.”

Tori, who works as a kindergarten teacher, has made it clear she doesn’t care that Jackson is like her dad when it comes to dwarfism.

She hopes he’s like his dad in every other way, as well.

“I just pray that he’s caring and thoughtful, like his father,” Tori says.. “I just want him to be a good person.”

Surrounded by so much love in his immediate family and extended family, we can’t see how this won’t be the case.

Congrats once again to Zach and Tori!

Your son is amazing!

Flashback: Pujols’ illustrious career had milestone HRs aplenty

El Hombre has done it.

On Saturday, Albert Pujols became just the ninth player in major-league history to hit 600 home runs after taking Minnesota Twins starter Ervin Santana deep for a grand slam in the fourth inning.

Pujols joins a very exclusive list of home run hitters to reach the 600 plateau: Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, Alex Rodriguez, Willie Mays, Ken Griffey Jr., Jim Thome, and Sammy Sosa.

Since making his debut in 2001, Pujols has been one of baseball’s most potent power hitters, immediately making a scene by swatting 37 home runs in his rookie year and never hitting fewer than 17 in a season.

With Pujols reaching 600, let’s head back in time to take a look at some of his other milestone homers.

No. 1

April 6, 2001 will go down in history as the first time Pujols cleared the fences in what would eventually become a historic MLB career. Four games into his first season, a 21-year-old Pujols absolutely hammered an offering from Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Armando Reynoso deep into the left-field stands for a homer which would "not be nearly the last" of his career, as predicted by the broadcast.

No. 100

On July 20, 2003, Pujols reached the century mark in just his third season in the big leagues. The St. Louis Cardinals slugger left Los Angeles Dodgers southpaw Odalis Perez shaking his head, as he trotted around the bases with a swaggy gold chain bouncing off his god-like physique. Pujols would smack 43 long balls that season while leading the NL in runs scored (137), hits (212), doubles (51), and total bases (394).

No. 200

With the bases loaded and a roaring crowd of Redbirds fans standing on their feet at Busch Stadium on Sept. 30, 2005, Pujols delivered the 200th home run of his career in epic fashion when he hammered a pitch from Cincinnati Reds right-hander Matt Belisle to deep left-center for a grand slam. That invoked quite the ovation from the fans in attendance, who requested Pujols step out of the dugout for a curtain call.

No. 300

One of the greatest rivalries in baseball bore witness to one of Pujols' milestone home runs July 4, 2008 when the Dominican slugger torched a pitch from Chicago Cubs right-hander Bob Howry down the left-field line and just inside the foul pole for the 300th dinger of his career. Pujols has hit more home runs (56) against the Cubs than any other team during his big-league career.

No. 400

Even though No. 400 didn't take place in St. Louis, Pujols received a respectful ovation from Washington Nationals fans on Aug. 26, 2010 after a mammoth blast deep over the right-center field stands gave him No. 400 for his career. Pujols became just the second Cardinals player in franchise history to reach 400 home runs, joining Stan Musial.

No. 500

The name Taylor Jordan will go down in history alongside Pujols for not one, but two reasons. The Nationals pitcher not only allowed home run No. 499 to Pujols, but home run No. 500 as well. Pujols, wearing the halo of the Los Angeles Angels, twice took the right-hander deep on April 22, 2014 to reach 500, joining just 27 other players who reached the historic big-league mark.

Kim Kardashian Reaches Instagram Milestone, Sharing Shocking Pics

Kim Kardashian really is a changed woman.

And this is very bad news for horny young men around the globe.

Just over two years ago, Kardashian crossed the 27 million follower mark on Instagram and celebrated with a seductive photograph of herself in bed.

“27 mil!!!!! Thank you so much!!!! I love you all!!!!!” Kim captioned the very sexy snapshot in February of 2015.

When her follower count subsequently climbed to 42 million, Kardashian dropped a MASSIVE cleavage selfie on fans in recognization of the achievement.

When she hit 45 million not long afterward?

You guessed it: more cleavage!

But that was before Kim was a mother of two.

It was before she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris this past October and forced to truly re-evaluate nearly every aspect of her life.

Kardashian has understandably become far more guarded since this incident and, by extension, far more clothed.

Earlier this week, she accomplished a true Instagram feat, becoming just the sixth person to reach 100 million followers.

However, she didn’t strip down in celebration. She didn’t show off her boobs. She chose to show off her family instead.

kim thanks

“I CAN’T BELIEVE I’VE REACHED 100 MILLION FOLLOWERS ON INSTAGRAM, THANKS TO YOU GUYS!!!” she wrote as a caption to the above family portrait on her official website.

“TO CELEBRATE, I WANTED TO TAKE A LOOK BACK AT MY MOST-LIKED POSTS. I APPRECIATE YOU GUYS SO MUCH, MORE THAN YOU KNOW,” Kim added.

On Instagram itself, meanwhile, Kardashian not only didn’t reward followers with a new naked selfie.

She didn’t even feature a new picture of herself!

She went with the following image of daughter North West and wrote as another caption:

“She has no clue what 100 million followers means but she’s excited cause i’m excited lol thanks for the follows and the love.”

This brand new Kim Kardashian is probably good for the reality star’s mental health.

But is it good for her future as an actual reality star? Can a buttoned-up, responsible, conservative, more private Kim Kardashian remain a legitimate A-Lister?

No. Not if the failing ratings for Keeping Up with the Kardashians are any indication.

After the aforementioned robbery in Paris, Kim stepped fully away from the spotlight.

She didn’t share anything at all on social media and she didn’t go out in public.

Following several weeks of being on a self-imposed lockdown, however, Kim re-emerged little by little, posting various pictures of her husband and children at home.

“It was time for Kim to get back on social media and back to work,” an insider told Entertainment Weekly in January, explaining:

“That is a huge part of her career. She has obligations to support her family and has an entire team working for her. It was time to get back to normal.”

Well, not normal.

Normal would have previously meant a Kim Kardashian nude spread in honor of this social media milestone. 

The new Kim Kardashian normal is a portrait of her loved ones.

We’re sorry, fellas. But you had to know this day was coming sooner or later, robbery or no robbery.

As for where Kardashian stands in the grand scheme of Instagram, she still has a ways to go before she can threaten Selena Gomez as the most popular user.

That singer is the most followed person on the platform by far, with approximately 120 million fans.

She is followed by: Ariana Grande at 105 million; Taylor Swift at 102 million; Beyonce and Cristiano Ronaldo, both at 101 million; and then Kim.

Kardashian is a solid 20 million followers ahead of the next person in her family, however, although we could actually see Kylie Jenner catching up someday.

She has her own reality show coming out and she remains very open to taking nearly everything off on a weekly basis.

That’s a tough combination. It’s one Kim can’t really compete with these days.

We’ll be keeping a close eye on both Instagram accounts to see if Kylie can someday usurp her sibling. Stay tuned!

Milestone Watch: 10 veterans who could make history in 2016

Among the thousands of athletes who've played in the NFL, few have stuck around long enough and played at a high enough level to cement themselves among the greats.

While some players will have the opportunity to break standing NFL records in 2016, others will look to work their way up all-time statistical categories and reach benchmark numbers.

Here are 10 NFL veterans looking to achieve legendary status this season:

Larry Fitzgerald

Attainable milestones: 100 touchdowns, third all time in receptions, seventh all time in receiving touchdowns, seventh all time in receiving yards

Stats entering 2016: 1,018 receptions, 13,366 receiving yards, 98 receiving touchdowns

With a repeat of his 2015 performance, Fitzgerald could put himself in a special place among NFL receivers. With 98 touchdowns, he’s just two shy of the century mark, and seven away from Antonio Gates for seventh all time. In all-time catches, he’s 85 away from the No. 3 spot, and is 1,215 yards (his exact 2015 total) away from seventh in the total yards mark. Former Colts receiver Marvin Harrison holds both of those spots.

Adrian Peterson

Attainable milestones: 100 rushing touchdowns, fifth all time in rushing yards, fourth all time in rushing touchdowns

Stats entering 2016: 11,675 rushing yards, 97 rushing touchdowns

With no Teddy Bridgewater, the 21st century’s best running back will get plenty of chances to take a shot at cementing himself among the all-time greats. A 2,009-yard season would put AP ahead of LaDainian Tomlinson (fifth all time), which isn’t out of reach for the impressive 31-year-old. He could reach 100 rushing touchdowns by the end of Week 1 and will climb to fourth all time by season’s end if he makes at least 13 trips to the end zone.

Drew Brees

Attainable milestones: 65,000 passing yards, third all time in passing yards

Stats entering 2016: 60,903 passing yards, 428 passing touchdowns

Brees became the first quarterback to topple Dan Marino's 5,084-yard season in 2011, and now he's ready to take his spot on the all-time list. The Saints field general sits just 458 yards behind Marino, who's third overall, and 4,100 yards from 65,000. He's still over 10,000 yards off Peyton Manning's No. 1 spot, but another pair of plus-5,000-yard seasons could narrow that gap in a hurry.

Tom Brady

Attainable milestones: 60,000 passing yards, fourth all time in passing yards

Stats entering 2016: 58,028 passing yards, 428 passing touchdowns

Brady is tied with Brees for career touchdowns, but his four-game suspension will separate the two on that front. Brees should get past Marino's all-time mark with ease, but even with a 12-game season, Brady could reach it as well. If "Tom Terrific" can muster an average of more than 277 yards upon his return, he could move one spot up the list by season's end, and he'll have plenty of motivation to do so.

Steve Smith

Attainable milestones: 14,000 receiving yards, 1,000 receptions, seventh all time in receiving yards

Stats entering 2016: 961 receptions, 13,932 receiving yards, 76 receiving touchdowns

Smith has already stated his goal of attaining 1,000 career catches – a very doable accomplishment – and sits not far outside the all time top 10 yardage list. With a mere 73 yards, the 37-year-old will crack both 14,000 yards and James Lofton's place in the top 10. Anything over 648 yards will move Smith ahead of Harrison into seventh all time, although Fitzgerald will likely beat him to it.

Frank Gore

Attainable milestones: 13,000 rushing yards, seventh all time in rushing yards

Stats entering 2016: 12,040 rushing yards, 70 rushing touchdowns

Gore has been one of the most consistent running backs around throughout his 11-year career, and it’s starting to pay off on his stats page. Sitting 15th all time in rushing yards, another 1,000-yard season for the 33-year-old would slide him past Tony Dorsett into eighth all time and over the 13,000-yard total. Peterson could push Gore back to ninth, but a top-10 total would still be a nice payoff for Gore’s years of punishment.

Julius Peppers, DeMarcus Ware

Attainable milestone: Fifth all time in sacks

Stats entering 2016: 136 sacks (Peppers), 134.5 sacks (Ware)

These two veteran sack artists are both headed to the Hall of Fame, but they’re still hard at work building their legacies. Both pass-rushers are within reach of Michael Strahan, who’s fifth all time is sacks (141.5) this season and will get every passing-down opportunity to go for it. With Ware’s back issues becoming a regular occurrence, this could be the last season we see him on the field, while Peppers has shown few signs of slowing down at age 36.

Pete Carroll, Mike Tomlin

Attainable milestone: 100 career wins

Stats entering 2016: 93 wins (Carroll), 92 wins (Tomlin)

The NFL has seen 38 coaches reach the 100-win total, and could see two more join the ranks in 2016. Unless the Seahawks have their worst season under Carroll this year, the 64-year-old will get to triple-digit wins – an impressive feat considering his early flameout as an NFL coach in the ’90s. The 44-year-old Tomlin’s rise to 100 wins may be even more remarkable, as he’s 20 years younger than Carroll and has yet to have a losing season in his nine years with the Steelers.

Ortiz notches milestone in final July 4th game

In the same park where he delivered an emotional patriotic speech three years ago, David Ortiz left the Fenway faithful with another lasting memory on his final Fourth of July game.

During the second inning of Boston’s Independence Day clash with Texas, Ortiz smacked a ground-rule double off Rangers right-hander Nick Martinez to break a tie with Red Sox legend Carl Yastrzemski for the 12th most extra-base hits in baseball history.

Ortiz’s MLB-leading 33rd double of the season was the 1158th extra-base hit of his career, leaving him 27 shy of Albert Pujols on the all-time leaderboard.

The Red Sox DH now has 618 doubles, and needs just eight more to pass Hank Aaron for the 10th-most ever.

A native of the Dominican Republic, Ortiz has made quite clear his patriotism for the United States ever since his memorable speech in the aftermath of the Boston marathon bombings.

Dating back to 2011, Ortiz now has three doubles and a homer in his last five Fourth of July games.

Trout joins MLB legends with milestone HR

If MIke Trout keeps this up, the company he keeps will become more scarce by the milestone.

The Angels superstar center fielder added to his increasingly elite resume Saturday night by smacking the 150th home run of his career, making him the eighth player in MLB history to log that many homers and score 500 runs before his age-25 season.

Trout, 24, joins Alex Rodriguez, Mel Ott, Jimmie Foxx, Mickey Mantle, Ken Griffey Jr., Frank Robinson, and teammate Albert Pujols in the age-specific 150/500 club.

Before age-25 season, sorted by HRs

Age Player HR R 2B SB
18-24 Alex Rodriguez 189 627 194 133
17-24 Mel Ott 176 680 195 38
17-24 Jimmie Foxx 174 612 159 29
19-24 Mickey Mantle 173 642 136 43
19-24 Ken Griffey 172 518 194 88
20-24 Frank Robinson 165 501 145 59
21-24 Albert Pujols 160 500 189 13
19-24 Mike Trout 150 500 154 118

The first-inning blast off Astros lefty Dallas Keuchel – Trout's 11th of the season – hurried over the fence in right-center at 90 mph and traveled a distance of 401 feet, according to Statcast.

Pujols followed Trout's solo shot with one of his own – the 571st of his career – to leave him just two homers shy of Harmon Killebrew for 11th on the all-time list. It marked the 27th game in which the power-hitting duo both homered, one shy of the franchise record set by Garret Anderson and Tim Salmon.

Cabrera hits milestone during monstrous night at plate

Miguel Cabrera looks to be back in form.

Hours after earning American League co-player of the week with teammate Cameron Maybin, Cabrera teed off against the Philadelphia Phillies, setting a milestone in the process.

Cabrera became the 62nd player in MLB history to reach the 500-double mark with a seventh-inning two-bagger off right-hander Colton Murray.

Not only did Cabrera reach a milestone, but he also swatted two home runs in the contest off dominating Phillies starter Vince Velasquez, who has looked unhittable at times during the season.

(Courtesy: MLB.com)

Cabrera, who was hitting just .204 on April 24, has torn the cover off the ball since and is currently slashing .327 with an OPS of .989.

Colon reaches illustrious Dominican pitching milestone

New York Mets right-hander Bartolo Colon has cemented himself as one of the top pitchers ever to hail from the Dominican Republic with a solid performance Friday night against the Cleveland Indians.

After tossing 5 1/3 innings of two-run ball in New York’s 6-5 victory, Colon was credited with the 219th win of his career, tying Pedro Martinez for the second-most wins by a Dominican-born pitcher.

“It means a lot. Pedro Martinez back in my homeland of the Dominican Republic is a special person.” Colon said postgame.

The only Dominican-born hurler with more wins than Colon is now the great Juan Marichal, who amassed 243 career victories.

RANK PLAYER WINS
1 Juan Marichal 243
2 Bartolo Colon 219
2 Pedro Martinez 219
4 Pedro Astacio 129
5 Joaquin Andujar 127

The 42-year-old is now 1-1 with a 2.13 ERA in three outings, but it's unlikely he challenges Marichal's win total this season.

Pujols reaches illustrious RBI milestone

Los Angeles Angels first baseman Albert Pujols has become the fourth-youngest player to record 550 or more home runs and 1,700 RBIs after driving in a run Saturday night against the Texas Rangers.

Only New York Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez and Hall of Famers Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron have accomplished the feat quicker.

Pujols, who boasts 560 career homers on his resume, also moved into sole possession of 24th on the all-time RBI list, and is closing in rapidly on Reggie Jackson and Frank Thomas.

RANK PLAYER RBI
20 Frank Robinson 1812
21 Honus Wagner 1732
22 Frank Thomas 1704
23 Reggie Jackson 1702
24 Albert Pujols 1700 

The 36-year-old slugger is off to a slow start this season, hitting .125/.125/.125 in four games prior to Saturday’s contest.

Kim Kardashian Hits Facebook Milestone, Puckers Up for Fans

As she recently claimed in a website livestream a couple weeks after giving birth, Kim Kardashian has enormous boobs.

But that’s not all. She also has an enormous following on Facebook.

The mother of two took to this social media platform on Sunday in celebration and gratitude over hitting 55 million friends, sharing the above image and writing as a caption to it:

55 MILLION!!!!!!!OMGGGGG!!!!!! LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!

It’s safe to assume that this photo of Kim Kardashian was taken long before she gave birth on December 5 to a son named Saint West.

It’s not the first time she has celebrated a social media milestone this year, either.

Back in February, Kardashian thanked her 27 million Instagram followers with a racy thong shot.

By August, the number of Likes had grown to 42 million and it was time for a cleavage close-up.

In October, that figure had swelled up to over 50 million and Kim got goofy for the occasion.

Yes, Kardashian has amassed quite the number of online friends and followers over the course of just a few months.

That’s what happens, we guess, when you have large breasts and are willing to show them off at all times.

Kardashian still trails Taylor Swift in number of Instagram followers, however, though we know how she can likely catapult the singer and retake the top spot:

Share a Saint West photo online and watch her number soar.
