Omari’s 1st Birthday

This baby rocks! His name is Omari, he’s a little ball of energy, and he just turned one! He also has the most amazing mom who put a lot of energy into making sure that his birthday party is a blast!

While Omari’s birthday was fun from the beginning to the end, there were two things that we really need to mention in this post. First one was a Korean ceremony,¬†doljanchi, during which the baby needs to choose one item and depending on what he chooses, that’s what he’d become in the future. Guest submit their guesses in a raffle and the winner gets a prize. Omari picked a pencil which means he will become a scholar. Another thing was the video time capsule: all guests got to record a brief message that Omari will view years from now.

We were so happy to have been apart of this amazing celebration! Happy birthday Omari! You are the best!
