2 Happy First Birthday to my beautiful baby girl!

Today my beautiful baby girl turns 1.  I can't believe it.  I know it sounds cliche, but it has gone by so incredibly fast.  It seems like yesterday I was waking up at 2am, wondering if the cramping feeling I was having meant "it's time".  I can't wrap my head around the idea that an entire year has passed.  A year used to seem like such looooonggg amount of time.  Now, it's the blink of an eye.  I feel so luck every day that I get to be this kid's mom.  She amazes us everyday with how smart and sweet she is.

This past weekend we had a birthday party for baby girl since her actual birth day falls in the middle of the week.  To avoid photo overload, I'll break this up into two blog posts.  FIRST - The Korean traditions from her first birthday!

My mother-in-law is Korean, so first we took photos of her in a traditional Korean birthday outfit.  They placed her at a table and placed three items in front of her: money, a stethoscope, and a notebook with a pen.  They said which item she reached for tells what her life will be like.  If she reached for money first, it means she will have a lot of money.  The stethoscope means she will be a doctor.  The notebook means she will be very smart.

She is, of course, her mother's daughter so she reached for the money right away.  Not once, but twice she grabbed at the bills.

I love how she looked like a little princess in the Korean birthday outfit.  She looks like she could be a little doll on a shelf!!
