Alicia's First Month Party

According to Chinese tradition, the first month is an important milestone for a newborn. It is believed that during the first month, the newborn is most susceptible (in terms of their health). Therefore, it is a joyous occasion for the Chinese to celebrate the newborn's first month 'birthday'.

The must-have auspicious food item would be the red eggs - hard boiled eggs soaked in an edible red solution - which would then be distributed to friends, colleagues and relatives.

It's quite amazing to observe the fast growth rate of a baby. Just two weeks apart, and Alicia has grown so much! I guess before long, she'll be a toddler scrambling around the house with many people chasing after her. For now, I'm glad she's contented to have just anyone carry her in their arms.
