One year ago today our lives changed forever. After waiting 3 months and 3 weeks since we first saw his picture, Matthew Conor Joon Seong Murphy was placed in our arms. As quickly as this year has flown by, I still can't remember what life was like before Matthew. There are not enough words to describe how much we love him or how wonderful this past year has been. Let's take a trip down memory lane with a few pictures from Matthew's first 24 hours home with his family and some from this morning at the zoo.
With the escort:
First time Matthew looked at his mommy. He wasn't too happy 10 seconds later.
On the plane on the way home from JFK to Boston
Playing with his toys for the first time
Snuggling with daddy
First night in his crib. Matthew slept 16 hours the first night.
