Today was the celebration of Parker's First birthday .
For some of his party he was in his Hanbok, his traditional dress.
Part of the Dol is a ritual where the child is placed in front of a table of foods and objects such as string, books, sword and money. The child is then urged to pick up an object from the table, where it is believed the one selected will foretell the child's future. For example, if the child picks up a brush or book, he is destined to be a scholar. If he picks up money or rice, he will be wealthy; cakes or other food, a government official; a sword or bow, a military commander. If the child picks up the thread, it is believed he will live a long life.
Parker will have a long and happy life.
After that fun, Parker moved on to the cake stage, his smash cake was an adorable and yummy concoction...
He had so much fun with it.
Look at that sweet face! Does it get any cuter?!
