We played the Korean traditional First Birthday Game because Koreans are really cool (Miriam). My sisters have done an Americanized version where they just put objects that represent different career fields and whatever object he chooses represents his future career path. He first picked the calculator. Next the apple. And finally the spool of thread (which in the Korean version represents a long life)
He got a cool red wagon (pictured) from Auntie M and Thompson Grandparents. He also got lots of other cool gifts from family members..!
And he couldn't get enough of that little cake. At first i think he was surprised that we were just letting him go to town. then he really got in to it - flinging the cake off his fingers all over the room.
