Jacob Roloff broke his arm in May 2008

We're receiving a few inquiries from confused people that are starting to see pictures like this one on Amy's official website





Jacob actually broke his arm back in May. Apparently it happened on a slide at school. Some people are starting to see these pictures and wondering if it is a recent injury. It is not. It happened in the spring/early summer time. I expect in the episode airing Dec 22nd dealing with Mike Detjen's passing on June 5th, we will see Jacob with his cast.
Hopefully this helps clarify the timeline.

Poor kid. Injury prone doesn't begin to describe him.

Gosh, Jacob is a beautiful child.

I think his constant injuries are pleas for attention he doesn't get because Jeremy is Matt's Golden boy and Zach is babied by Amy.

I always thought Mike was more of a father figure for Jake than Matt. Mike would help Jake out with soccer and was around a lot more than Matt. Matt was always busy with projects. Also I'm sure Matt still thinks of Jake as a "sissy boy" as he refered to him as on the RV trip.

DegrassiFan,
That's true, but Mike was even more of a father figure to Jeremy than he was to Jake. Matt was always busy and couldn't physically do somethings with Jeremy and Jacob that Mike could.
Mike and Jeremy were extremely close. I think you're going to see that on the show in a few weeks.

Matt only truly cares about one son and that is Jeremy

I had the opportunity to visit the farm this past October. Jacob posed for some pictures. He was missing a tooth. Did he get his tooth knocked out in this slide incident?

degrassifan said...

Scott I would agree with you. Jeremy and Mike would always walk into together after a soccer game or practice. Mike would even drive Jeremy,Zach,and Jacob home from games. Mike was the person who would watch the kids when Amy and Matt were gone.

It will be an emotional episode.

My sister works at Discovery Cove in Florida and saw the Roloffs while they were there. Sher said Jacob has gorgeous eyelashes! lol

Alana said...

Joanne, that's neat. Jacob really does have gorgeous eyelashes. I've seen them in close ups on the show. Jeremy also has beautiful eyelashes. That's one of the only physical similarities I think Jeremy and Jacob share.

Jacob is going to be the looker in the family. People think that title belongs to Jeremy, but I think Jacob will surpass him.

Awwww said...

What a cutie. Get that kid on TV!!! Oh wait...well, he should be in commercials.

Rox said...

Degrassifan, I agree. I don't like Jeremy very much, but I think he was really close to Mike.

I think some of Jacob's accidents happen because he seeks attention. When he's hurt, he gets attention.

Craw said...

Jacob gets hurt too much. How can he be so fragile, but Jeremy be so tough?

MK said...

Craw
Not all kids are the same! Some kids are "tougher", while others are just more prone to injury.. maybe he just isn't as coordinated (yet). Some kids just aren't, even when they come from the same families!

it seems really unlikly that jacob is gettin hurt for attention. they've all been accidents because he is a kid. and a boy. they're rough and things happen. and i dont think its anyones business to say whether either mat or amy favor any kids or arnt around for their kids. you only see what they show you. which isnt even close to everything. i think they are a great family and no family is perfect. Far from it!

i think it is awsome that the Roloffs are christians and because so many people watch their show.They would be a great influence for every one who does not know God. They r such a great family. it's my FAVORIT show on tv

Nelda Ring said...

Thank you for an educational, inspirational family show. As Christians we unable to watch much of TV because it is unfit. The Roloff family is terrific, keep it coming.
Is it possible to purchase one of the stools that Matt designed and sells? Rheumatoid arthritis has limited my activities and one of the stools would be so helpful.

Its sad how all you people think you really "know" the Roloff's, their friends and family. You are being spoon fed a story line from producers of a TV show. Your told what they want to tell you and you see what they want you to see. You really dont know this family and who they are. Stop pretending and wake up! This is a TV show...not reality!

Jason said...

Why blame the viewers, Anon?

The Roloffs say "This is our life". Matt and Amy get on tv interviews and say what people see is the real them.

If it's not reality (and I have no doubt you are right, if it was everyone would have known about Jeremy's hate speech a long time ago) how are the Roloffs being a "faith based" family by lying about how real the show is?

Yes, Jacob is a beautiful boy. In one episode, they showed a picture of Matt as a boy, and I thought it was a picture of Jacob. Matt really did look exactly like Jacob when he was young. But as the years have progressed, Jacob has started to look like Amy. I see it in the smile and the definition of his cheek bones. I don't know... maybe it's just me. As far as Jacob being accident prone, I do think he's had one to many consecutive injuries for it to be coincidental. I've also noticed that he has a pattern of head traumas. If his intention is to hurt himself for attention, someone should take him aside and inform him of how dangerous it is for his head to be a constant target. He should pick a part of his body that he can do without... When I figure out exactly what part that would be, I'll get back to you. lol
