A Chinese Birthday Tradition

Owen turned one in December and for the celebration, we followed a Chinese tradition for the one-year-old's birthday called "zwa shui." Owen's grandma Wai Po set up a stage with objects representing future professions, like a calculator for an accountant and baseball for an athlete. Owen choose a pen, which she says means he will be a scholar or thinker.

We have the same tradition in Romania and did it for both my kids!

Happy birthday, big boy!
