In Korean culture we celebrate when a baby turns 100-days old. Back in the day, some babies didn’t survive this difficult period, so 100 days was marked as a rite of passage. Here’s a look at how we celebrated our baby’s good health! We drove down to my parents’ house in Fresno and my siblings traveled to meet us there too. My mom got us matching shirts from Etsy. Proud grandparents. Red bean rice cakes symbolize protection, good fortune, and happiness. Traditionally you’re supposed to share the rice cakes with 100 people. I’m taking the modern twist of sharing this image of our mochi with all you dear internet people. 🙂 Uncle Eugene.Uncle Peter and Aunt Eurie. My dad showing off his babes to my babe. Dinner party at KuniSama, a teppanyaki restaurant in Fresno. When the server brought out the cake he looked around the table for an old person who might be 100 years old. He was pretty confused when we pointed him towards the baby. We’re so grateful to our family, friends, and blog readers who have supported us through this exciting and difficult time in our lives. Thanks for helping us celebrate our beautiful boy!
