Little People’s Tori and Zach Roloff are emotional and “so proud” as daughter Lilah, 3, reaches an important new milestone
LITTLE People’s Tori and Zach Roloff have celebrated their three-year-old daughter Lilah for reaching a brand new milestone.
Tori, 32, told her followers on Instagram on Sunday that Lilah would soon be giving her first dance concert.
The Little People, Big World star shared four photos of her daughter standing outside in her adorable pink costume.
Lilah’s all-pink outfit consisted of a floral leotard coupled with a layered tutu worn over tights.
Her costume also included three pink roses just above the tutu, which she paired perfectly with the headband in her hair.
“Today is a big day for Lilah Girl!!” Tori wrote in the caption.
“Today is her first dance night! I enjoyed watching her find something she loves!!
“She has gained so much confidence through dance and I am forever grateful to her teacher and studio for helping her feel comfortable and confident!”
“Who knows if she’ll take the stage today but either way I’m so proud of her and everything she’s accomplished!” she concluded.
While Tori and her husband Zach might have been unsure whether or not Lilah would perform, she went back and added an update to her caption after the show.

She wrote: “UPDATE: SHE HAS IT GO!!!!”
Tori also took to her Instagram Stories later that evening and snapped a family photo of her, Zach and their three children after Lilah’s performance.
“She did it! And I couldn’t be prouder!” The TLC star beamed.
Tori’s subsequent IG story featured another family photo, this time all of Lilah’s grannies attending the show – including Amy Roloff.
Lilah’s huge success comes after the mother-of-three raised concerns earlier this year that her toddler might be developing with disabilities.
i spell it
In February, Tori gave her followers an encouraging update on Lilah’s abilities after previously saying during a visit to the doctor’s office that she failed a hearing test.
The 32-year-old revealed: “They were afraid that she had water behind her ears and might not be able to hear us.”
“There’s a chance it’s contributing to her speech delay.”
But in a couple of new videos she posted her Instagram stories, Lilah smiled as she played and even gave her mother a spelling lesson.
In the first short video, Lilah skidded across the slippery floor of her parents’ house in a hop.
Lilah turned her walker into a runner as she quickly pedaled across the room, lifting her legs and leading past her filming mom.
In the next clip, the little one got out of the walker, smiled and showed off her spelling skills.
When Tori asked, Lilah was able to spell her name “Dada” and “Mama” correctly.
With each correct spelling, Tori happily encouraged them with shouts of “Well done!” and “Yay!”
The TLC star also recently gave an update on her six-year-old son, Jackson, after some fans expressed concerns about his health.
JACKSON IN ACTION
After Tori posted photos from her one-year-old son Josiah’s rodeo birthday party earlier this year, many fans became concerned about Jackson’s health.
Many commenters noticed how bent Jackson’s legs looked, and some asked curious questions about the surgery he might have to fix the problem.
Last week, the mother-of-three shared a clip of Jackson doing his science homework.
The boy was holding a Sharpie pen, which he was tracing over his drawing of a butterfly’s life cycle.
As he filled in his scrawl of a caterpillar, he softly sang, “Jesus, strong and kind.”
Tori captioned the video with three crying emojis, seemingly absorbed in her eldest son’s sweet moment.
In 2021, Jackson underwent surgery to ease his condition.
Earlier last year, Tori explained the procedure on Instagram: “He had plates placed on his growth plates. Nothing changed immediately.”
In June, she also stated, “We won’t know in a few years how successful the surgery was as this is something that happens slowly and over time.”
In November, Zach announced that they still hadn’t seen conclusive results after the surgery.
