I just hope Zach found a neurologist and got his recent issues resolved.

I also would love to Matt grow up and stop whining about not having a big house.

I liked that Her and Aug just didn't invite boyfriend or girlfriend of a parent to their reveal party and while they let Matt propose other ideas they didn't let his being uncomfortable in Amy's house force them into a barn where guests had to use porta potties. And no added expense since the house has bathrooms.

I wish Tori and Zach could hook up with Bill and Jen for a referral for a good specialist to work with their new L.P. son.

I would assume that Tori and Zach have access to the best specialists and do not need Bill and Jen's referrals - Zach was raised with parents who both have dwarfism, and Matt has had multiple surgeries (not sure about Amy) over his lifetime.

I'm thinking that Amy has been spared a lot of physical problems. Maybe Jackson will be so blessed also.

OG, I wonder about Amy.. Did she have her issues and just doesn't mention them or what.. But she does seem more trouble free .. Matt, Bill and Jen all had so many issues, but they aren't Achondroplasic dwarfs.

I also wonder if some who are Achondroplasic just never get the key operations like Zach had.. By choice or lack of money or lack of knowledge of parents and doctors.

There is a show I caught last night about L.P. who are extremely obese. One guy said in his case the torso is normal size,so he eats as much but he was at a place where he could barely walk.

The woman was similarly shaped. And sadly isolated.

Their coach is a woman who was overweight (she is L.P. also) and is very fit.. so she gets their issues but won't let them use the dwarf card. She also seemed to get them to talk about wishes for the future and was interested in them, not just in their weight.

But that made me wonder how many L.P. grow up being considered handicapped beyond help.

Zach had two parents who showed him you can get out and live and his son will have an active dad (but.. Get that shunt checked.. I mean the instant Zach described his symptoms, digestive and horrible headaches, I thought about his shunt and Matt and Any each thought of that as well.

I was so surprised to hear Jeremy talk (an episode or two ago) about possibly not moving back to the Portland area. He said with the parents divorced and dating other people, "it's messy".

Seriously?? I think the twins are 29 now. Isn't that old enough to know every family is messy in one way or another. I can't think of a single family that isn't dealing with something - a rebellious teen, divorced parents, someone gay/trans/bi/etc..., an elderly parent living there, an illness, adult children moving back, and on and on! We're *all* messy!

When they were discussing this, I thought "how selfish can you be!" (To deprive the baby of not being raised near all grandparents and to deprive the grandparents of not watching the little one grow up!?!)

My parents are celebrating their 55th anniversary this month, so I've never understood children of divorced parents wanting desperately for the parents to reunite. (Like Faith on Y&R, haha) I mean, I get it for a young child like her and even a young adult, but at almost 30? Shouldn't you be able to accept it, welcome whoever your parent is dating (especially if they've never done you wrong!) And be happy your parent is happy again - after watching them bicker for years together!

I do believe I've heard Amy say she didn't have any of the usual dwarf related problems.

I know they have a website (link below) where they sell stuff, but I don't know of any other "work" they do except the show-which of course brings them income..

Isn't Jeremy college trained as a photographer ?

A young man like that must have a back up plan as this gig is not going to last forever. Or perhaps he has invested his tv $$$ well.Even the Kardashians < thank you Jesus > cannot possibly last that much longer.

I think he expects to take over the farm.. Not sure if he thinks Zach, Molly and Jacob would be compensated..

And if Matt were to remarry...

There could be something in their divorce papers saying the farm can only be inherited by the kids.

An adult child has an obligation to his wife and child over his extended family IMO. If the drama of his family tends to cause conflict then he by all means should limit his family's involvement in the midst of it. Having said that I have no clue whether that is the case but I never judge someone's actions unless I have lived their lives.

I think the show about the LP with obesity problems is called Big and Little.

Matt has wanted the farm to stay in the family.

He talked to the twins on camera. Jeremy sees living there but seems to eventually want the big house. Zach so far just wants to be close by. And if he ends up enjoying the family business with the stools for hotels, that could be good for him.

Who knows what Molly wants, but she isn't participating much and works in Washington and is engaged there.

Jacob is the wild card.. since he already has alleged that he didn't get his share of the money from the show, I hardly see him walking away from what he probably considers his share of the farm.

But the twins have continued to be involved in the farm. And are starting families.

If Matt remarried, maybe he would have a pre nup that excluded his portion of the farm from community property.. But Caryn also works there as manager.

Complicated.

But I think the baby girl is likely to have curly hair. 😎

That step that Zach made with Matt supervising was beautiful!

As Matt pointed out, he wasn't always home but also since he and Amy are both LP, they could just have a lower crib for access, but with Tori being average height this step works. Zach made it so it slices under the crib to be out of Tori's way.

Why the big hurry on a sandbox? It will probably be at least 3 years before the babies can play it.

I did not understand the sandbox ! Was that producer driven for drama? Or is Matt just wanting to build something! I had a sandbox , the turtle shaped one...with a lid! Sandboxes out in the open sleeve me out, more than playing in the dirt!

Matt always has to make a giant production of everything. And it seems he never talks to Any without whining about money, her being in the big house, or both.

But even a Matt Roloff super duper sandbox is probably a safer project than that family compound he was wanting to start.

Whew Sea, that is so true! The family compound was bound to be a FUBAR

Loved the 'Grandma Shower' Lots of Grandma Friends want the pleasure of looking for Onesies etc., and showing off their sweet "Finds" to compare. Great idea for a party.

Yeah I'm pretty concerned too OG. But I also I'm hoping that it's not his shunt that needs replacing that's all they need is his surgery with a new baby.

It seemed that the doctor thought it it was his shunt, symptoms wouldn't was and wane.

But I wish he could get a more complete workup.. It could be the shunt, or if could be something completely different and still be of great concern.

Zach has such a laid back demeanor, so it could be that he was holding in all the anxiety about new responsibility with a child, and a child who might have issues, Tori recouping from a C Section, his new job working for Matt.. his parents divorce.. losing Sully.

Perhaps he is just having plain old garden variety migraines. They can be horrendous.
