"Every child arrives with a specific personality, and that is really fun to explore together as the children grow."

Hi everybody, it's Cortney from 9 by Design!

This is a very exciting and crazy time in our lives! The second episode of our new show is super-fun, and one of our favorites.

In this episode, I’ve given birth to a healthy baby boy we named Major Robert Novogratz, after Robert’s dad, who was a major in the Army. We have been so blessed to have amazing kids, and I never take any of them (or any aspect of our lives) for granted even for a minute.

Taking Major home from the hospital is a highlight on the show. All of the other kids were super-excited to see him. And Major figured out quickly he is loved, as everybody fought to have their chance to hold him. He is a very chill kid, which is a good thing after having Five and Holly, who are the wild children of the family. One of the most interesting things about parenting is how different each of the children is, regardless of the family environment and the parents’ impact. Every child arrives with a specific personality, and that is really fun to explore together as the children grow.
