Joshua, in case y’all didn’t know, is 1/4 Korean. My mother-in-law came here from Korea when she met my father-in-law in the 1960s. There is a traditional celebration in Korea that honors a child’s first 100 days of life. It stems from the fact that infant mortality rates are high, so if a baby survives his or her first 100 days, it is expected that the child will survive infancy and go on to live a long life.
Joshua’s 100 day birthday was Monday, and since that is part of his heritage, we celebrated.
My mom came over on Sunday to help me get the house ready for the party. (Basically, she watched Joshua and I cleaned up, but it was a HUGE help to have her here!)
On Monday, our friends and family came over to eat yummy Korean food and see our little guy.
It was so heartwarming to know that so many people love us and Joshua enough to drive out here (some for over 2 hours in horrible traffic!) on a Monday night to celebrate with us.
And, of course, pictures!
