Over the phone, hubby asked me what I bought for BB. I told him to come back and check it out himself. Upon reaching home, MIL asked me if we needed “Hong Kai Tan – red egg” for the birthday boy. I think we need, after all it’s only once a year and it’s a Chinese tradition to have red egg and “min xin- longevity noodle” for abundance, good luck and longevity. MIL thought it’s quite messy to dye the whole egg; she came up with a creative idea- that is to paint the egg like Humpty Dumpty. Each one of us painted the egg, they all looked different and then BB is asked to choose one for himself to savor his birthday red egg.
Hehe...funny humpty dumpty from all of us to BB. He has choosen the sleeping beauty that mommy drew. :) A real Mommy's boy!
“Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to BB, Happy Birthday to you” While we sang the song, he stood still with his eye open big big and looked very surprise and overwhelming but absorbed the greatest moment gracefully. MIL taught him to shut both eyes and make a wish before blowing the candles. BB shut his eyes tight as though he really was making a wish. How cute! He then cut cake, he feed everyone a “knife-full of cake”- he feed us cake with cake knife, eeuuuuuu….NO BB, unhygienic!
Papa bought BB a 12 weeks programme from Gymboree.
