so what did he pick during the doljabi?? :) :) I lived in Korea for four years and LOVE Korean traditions.

It was so much fun! He was able to make 3 choices (I have no idea why he gets 3, my mom and aunts said he just does). He picked, in order, the computer mouse (tech whiz), maraca musician), and stethoscope (doctor). He touched the money but never picked it up, so he was just teasing us with that one. ;) So here's my story for it: in college he starts off as a Computer Science major. Then he meets some girl who thinks he should be a rock star so he dabbles in music for a summer. Then he dumps that girl and re-focuses back on his future and goes to medical school and becomes a doctor, making his mom and dad very proud!

I love all the details of this party! I'm starting to plan one for my 9 month old. Can I ask you where you got the birthday invitation?

Thank you, Jane! I ended up designing the invitation on my own via Photoshop Elements. I did borrow the idea from someone else's invite for another party that I had seen, so the original concept wasn't my own. I simply tweaked what they did and designed it myself. You are welcome to do the same!

Jack_1st_bday13_thumb Thank you! I borrowed some of the pics of items from Googled images, and then did the rest in PhotoShop Elements.

Jack_1st_bday16_thumb It was actually my brother's, so it has been passed down. This site may have some rentals or connections for you: http://www.littleseoulsparty.com/
