New mom and “Little People, Big World” star Audrey Roloff was recently slammed by Facebook commenters who didn’t have the desired reaction to a photo the reality TV star shared of her newborn baby daughter, Ember.
Roloff shared the photo to various social media platforms to celebrate Ember becoming two months old. But it was the caption that rubbed people the wrong way.
“The dictionary defines EMBER as ‘a small live piece of coal wood etc in a dying fire. The remains of a fire. A glowing fragment from fire,'” Roloff wrote. “We want our little Ember to be a light in the darkness, glowing in all she does, enduring and lasting – hard to stop, ALWAYS believing in the MORE that is within her – and when stoked/kindled by her Creator – able to burn and glow even MORE than she could on her own, ” she continued. Our prayer is that she would be MORE on fire for God as He continues to fan her into flame. Always more.”
Some people clearly found the heartwarming caption a bit excessive, and naturally, they made their feelings known in the comments section:
“Putting pressure on an infant much? She’s just a baby, let her just thrive and grow without all the expectations and intensity,” one person wrote.
Another claimed Ember looked cold and mocked her headband: “Enjoy the fuzzy little baby head. Ember’s will soon enough be covered in a mess of red curls.”
Audrey chose not to respond to the negative comments, but that’s probably because she was too busy reading all the nice stuff:
Bye bye kitchen😥 Life update👇🏻(in case you don’t watch my instragram stories) 6 months ago Jeremy and l bought our first home, a bit of a fixer upper. l was 6 months pregnant at the time, but we decided to do a minor remodel, mostly we wanted to update our 1960’s kitchen and take out a wall to open it up to the living room. What we thought would take 4 weeks ended up taking 3 months… We finally moved in 3 weeks before my due date – still without a stove/oven and a few other lingering things to finished up. 11 days after my due date, we brought Ember Jean Roloff home, and she started rocking and ruling our world;) Flash forward 2 months – full of tears, doctors appointments, prayers, laughter, learning, sleepless nights, cuddles, hundreds of baby pics, take-out, and Netflix… we come to find out our dishwasher had been leaking water under our kitchen😭 and all our hard work would need to be ripped out and redone🤦🏼♀️ this time with a newborn baby and during the holidays… l was just starting to feel like l got my feet back under me again since having Ember, we finished pumpkin season, and we were days away from being able to cook our first home cooked meal. As they say, “If you can make lt through a remodel you can go through anything…” Well, looks like we are about to make it through two in one year🤷🏼♀️ Yesterday our entire kitchen got torn up (muchhhhh worse than this photo). To be honest, l was pretty heartached, angry, frustrated, and bitter for at least a solid 24 hours. Moving out/living under construction with a newborn is 👎🏻 But today the Lord reminded me of this simple yet significant truth. There is ALWAYS MORE to my story than what l can see, know, and understand. “…as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:18 So all this? l know He will work it for my good and His glory. The Lord is the author, l simply get to be a faithful narrator – His past faithfulness demands my present trust. #alwaymore #journeyofjerandauj #beating50percent
