One week home. . . FIRSTS for Lucia

Here are some FIRSTS for our new daughter around the McMurray house.

First outing the morning after she got home. We got all bundled up and of course hit Starbucks, and dognuts. Some things never change. . . . I think the boys first outing was to Starbucks. We are so pathetic.
First Sunday family dinner at Grammy and Grampy's. We have had this weekly tradition since aaron and I were engaged.
Loves Grammy and Grampy's house.

First superbowl! Hangin with my new friend Owen.
Enough superbowl. . . . the games are a little long.
I love these cheeks.

First time to church. Our pastor brought us up front to introduce the baby girl the church family had been praying for.
Of course she put on a smiley show.
At church with Belle. Belle is about one and half months younger.
First time watching my brother play hoops.
First Zags game. Hanging out with the family with pizza, beer and the Zags. The boys love the games now. They know all the players and follow the score. Aaron and I looked across the room and had a knowing look of - it doesn't get much better than this!
First time meeting the Graves family. Cooper was so sweet with Lucia. I think they might need a baby sister.
The boys and "little missy."
First time meeting the Brown family.
First time to Mom's favorite treat Italian ice cream at Gelato Joe's!
Cuddling with Daddy at Gelato Joes.

First Saturday morning at the McMurrays. Saturday mornings are sacred around here . . . Daddy makes breakfast and we stay in our jammies as long as possible. The only thing missing was Janny and Ryan. They used to join us Saturdays mornings. We miss them terribly and my heart just aches that they have not met Lucia.
First time in the Snow.
First time cheering for my brothes indoor soccer team.
Go North Spokane Bats! Aaron coached and it was an entertaining season.
"We smoked them Mom now can I have a picture with my new sister?"
First meal at home. The boys want to try all her food.
A Keagan first! Congrats on your first bubble. . . big deal when you are five.
First wrestling match.
Poor Daddy!

We can't imagine life without her. We are all over the moon in love.

I somehow stumbled upon your blog and have been following your journey home. Lucia is so beautiful and so is your whole family! I have been living vicariously through you as we are still waiting to bring our daughter home.

Where do you get Lucia's bows and barrettes? They are so fun!!
