Royal 9 month

How do I have a 9 month old?!

Everyday I’m amazed by all the new things Royal’s doing. He’s been crawling for over a month now and he’s already climbing bookcases and cruising around furniture. I don’t know where my little newborn has gone but this new baby is into EVERYTHING! I love it though. It’s so fun to see him constantly learning about the world around him even if it means destroying my cute always organized house.

I’m quite OCD when it comes to my home. I hate untidiness and clutter. I have to constantly remind myself that it’s alright that there are toys scattered and things pulled off every shelf and low table. Mess making is part of the growing up process but when nap time hits I scurry around and get the house organized. It stays that way for about 0.5 seconds, once the baby wakes up, but that’s alright. This is my own slice of chaotic heaven.


Royal also said his first word last month! Appropriately his first word was “Mama”. He says it every time he wants me to pick him up, wants me to feed him, or if he’s upset and wants comforting. I don’t think there’s ever been a word that has brought so much joy to me. My heart flutters every time his cute little self says it. I melt! He says “dada” but he hasn’t quite figured out how to connect it to Scott. I’m sure that’s next!

Today he started clapping his hands! It’s adorable and his face lights up in the cutest way every time we clap back at him. He’s my joy.

It’s amazing how every milestone both makes me proud and breaks my heart! I can’t believe how quickly this time is flying by. Everyone warned me but I don’t think there’s any way to prepare yourself. I’ll just have to continue to soak in every day with my sweet boy and enjoy every precious mess he makes!
