Some Firsts

We have been back for a littele over a week now and have been getting settled in, and exploring the world. We have done many "first" things, and are loving having a brother and sister. CT and KG love having Deacon around. They all have a great time together.
First trip to the state fair. LOVED the food.
CT's soccer game was interesting, but this dog was more fun. This was actually CT's second game. When we drove up to the soccer fields Deacon started clapping his hands.
Mommy, Deacon, and CT on the carousel. He wanted nothing of this. I tried to put him on a horse, but he held on tight to me. So I just held him. He did get brave enough to touch the horse before we got off.
First trip to the library.
First time on the gator. Had to drag him off of it.
First family photo with Mommy's side of the family.
First soccer game.
Hey I think I'll be a great soccer player.
First trip to church.

We've also had our first post home study visit, first peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and our first trip to Walmart.


  1. How sweet. Deacon always looks so happy! He looks like a little lovie to be around! We are anxious to meet him. I hope it will be soon!

  2. This is so awesome! I love it! Deacon is one blessed little boy! God certainly has a plan for him!

  3. what fun! I love the family good!!

  4. Aimee, thank you for your sweet note on our blog. We are avery excited to leave tomorrow on our journey to Maggie. Your little kiddos are precious.... I have set it up to email my brother who will post on our blog for us since I have heard we won't be able to post, I hope that works. Take care and thanks again. Stephanie Gilmartin

  5. So good to see Deacon settling right in. I know KG and CT are loving the new sib! All I can think about is the complete change of countenance in that child since the minute you guys got to him in China! In your "orphan" pics his face is like that of another child...after he is with y'all, he positively glows! He is so happy with you, as I know you are with him.
