Ugh… a two hour baby episode. Let me be right up front, I am not a baby person. Babies are squishy and weird looking. I’m happy for Tory and Zach but ewww baby stuff! And without any clever, amusing British midwives or nuns. Oh hey, there’s a good show about babies on PBS called “Call the Midwife” – I highly recommend!
Bonus scenes. Matt asks Jeremy if he dreads returning home. They then argue about tools. Matt loves the idea of Jer and Auj being closer. Jeremy looks like he wants to gnaw his arm off.
I missed the second bonus scene because I care more about my mom than this show, and the third scene was Matt giving advice. Sorry, my parents trump the show.
For the record, I think Zach’s problem is migraines.
Now Zach has scrubs? To wear? At the house? I am pretty sure they give you scrubs at the hospital. Tory is SO over being pregnant, I mean she’s just about “GET THE KNIFE AND I WILL DO IT MYSELF!!!”.
Zach sagely notes on the haybale how the headaches are probably migraines and not his shunt. Tory is dreading the c-section and is all “They take your intestines out” and honestly I don’t think that’s a c-section.
Tory wants Zach at her side for the whole thing.
At the farm, Matt is feeding the goats. Amy and Matt discuss how they will be grandparents and we get a montage of various old scenes. I actually feel a lil sad during this part, as baby lambs wander about, that the older marrieds are divorced.
Meanwhile in Bend, Jer and Auj are de-pretentiousing the old house. Auj will be signing stuff and Jer will be doing the moving. Oh Jer has a hernia! That’s his mystery illness and he’ll need surgery. They discuss how mom and dad Roloff will want to see them and the kid, and Jer is all about how they will need to set some boundaries! Oh jeez kids, stop BITCHING. you’ll be screaming for Amy to take the baby!
Tory and Zach discuss how worried they are about the baby. Zach reassures her that she’s awesome.
At Amy’s house, Amy is making food for the baby couple, and will be teaching Zach how to cook food. Amy takes over a lot. Oh Zach, also try watching PBS cooking shows, they don’t take the knife away from you! But nice of Amy to show him sorta how to cook and he’s so excited.
In Bend – more moving! They might not get the keys that day! Jer thinks he might be moving with no place to go. They’re all uncertain. I’d feel more if Jer and Auj weren’t already bitching about setting boundaries for the in-laws.
So Matt’s extra room is basically an episode of Hoarders and no one better say the giant pile of cluttered shit is somehow Amy’s fault. He brings in his new sidepiece Caryn to actually do the work. Caryn notes that he better get some girl toys, and then presses him about whether he actually bothered to help Amy change diapers. His non answer is not a shock.
Chris takes Amy to some fancy place. In fairness to Chris, he’s clued in, unlike Matt, that Amy likes to eat out. Chris also presses to meet Matt. Chris puts it rather politely. Amy has put off the two of them interacting. Chris is amused but thinks he should be alone with Matt. Amy is all “But you both have been in my vagina!” . More seriously, Amy notes how forceful Matt is, and how charming.
Oh look, no real crisis in moving. Somehow, they move all their stuff in to two rooms because they will be remodeling and such. Jer pointedly notes how glad he is to be near Zach.
Matt shows Zach the hoard room that’s a total sty. In theory Matt may shove all his crap on shelves but really, Ithink the room needs to be emptied first.
Chris and Amy check out the pool because maybe they will start having parties and also Chris wants to meet Matt. OMG CHRIS AND MATT IN PHYSICAL REACH!!!!
Chris and Amy have dated for eight months and Chris wants to be respectful. They’re pleasant. Amy voices over how charming Matt is. Chris notes how nice the kids are. He’s respectful, in my opinion. Matt continues to harp on how Amy finally let him meet Chris. Chris wants to play on a tractor.
In the debriefing, Chris notes Matt was pleasant. They joke about they won’t be playing cards with Caryn and Matt. Amy really doesn’t want Chris socializing with Matt.
Zach and Jeremy and Mueller are wandering around the farm. They’re having a camp fire. They talk kids and Mueller seems more mature. Unfortunately, the whole scene feels forced and Jeremy looks super bored.
Ugh it looks like the baby stuff is about to start.
Matt wanders in to the work barn aka the men’s crisis center and rants he wants to find his own crib. Matt searches for his sacred crib and yells for Ryan to help, and now another montage as the ratty old crib that in theory Matt used is found but…. Instead he has tiny chairs for the kids and a different crib.
Zach and Tory are one day out from birthing and she is huge. There’s a bassinet thing for the baby in the bedroom. She continues with the “rip the baby out where is the knife??” while Zach is all “oh lets have more.”
Amy throws her dog treats in the early morning. She’s musing on life as the sun rises on the day of her grandchild’s birth. She prays on camera, and its meaningful.
Now it’s baby day and Zach is hauling Tory to the hospital. They’re totally late. They’ve packed the car for an excursion down the Nile. They joke on the drive how they have doomed the baby by being late. Tory seems weirded out that she is soon to be a mom. Amy is waiting for them and is dithering.
Tory’s mom is on the way. Tory puts on a gown and her mom is there. Zach and Tory are very sweet and apparently, we’re not getting a vag cam so yay!
Matt is waiting on the farm, and muses on life. Amy goes back to the farm because she wants to give them space. Jer and Auj are there. She goes on about the love of a newborn child. Also apparently Jeremy had no idea that he was a premie.
NO CAMERAS IN THE OPERATING ROOM THANK GOD!
Aw…. Jackson Kyle Roloff.
Someone calls Amy and everyone heads to the hospital to see the nine pound dwarf. Matt gets notice and tells Caryn and she’s excited. Matt equates this with being kicked by a donkey!
Zach and Tory are super cute with baby Jackson. They smooch and then smooch the baby. Everyone loves the baby and holds the baby.
More baby stuff, Matt and Caryn made a giraffe room. Zach cleans poop off the baby.
At the new Jer and Auj house, Jer and Auj have no stuff and start remodeling. Also Jer’s hernia is no biggy and is really no issue… and he tears stuff up.
Baby stuff with Zach and Tory. Matt and Amy and Swen make a stork.
The baby was taken home. Tory loves the stork. She cries a bit. A week later there’s diaper changing.
There’s also stroller walks.
Amy and Jer are in the big house kitchen and they’re waiting on the baby. Amy holds the baby and loves him. Then they head over to the farm office and Matt also gets to love the baby.
Then Jer and Auj go on about the baby and how they are part of a grand thing.
