Ian Kim’s First Birthday

David and I went up to Dallas to visit the Kim Family for Ian’s luau-themed first birthday. In Korean culture, a baby’s first birthday (called Tol) is an important milestone and includes praying and giving thanks, wearing traditional birthday clothes, sharing food, and preparing a birthday table with fruits and gifts, as well as performing the Toljabee, in which the baby is placed in front of different objects that predict his future. The first object the child grabs is considered most important! (money=wealth, stethoscope=doctor, microphone=entertainer, string=long life) Ian went straight for the Benjamins! LOL. It was a lot of fun and it was great spending time with good friends.
