Gung Hay Fat Choy! Chinese New Year officially began yesterday and it apparently lasts for 15 days (according to my mom). Phew! I was relieved to hear that since I am late in sending out my red envelopes to the little ones! We celebrated the occasion at a friend’s house with a hot pot dinner. Yum! Of course, I had to dress Ethan up in a traditional-style Chinese emperor’s hat just for fun. It turned out he loved the hat and was even very possessive about it (like most things he owns — “mine!” is ingrained in his little toddler mind). He also picked out a festive dragon wand at the store to celebrate the new year. What a cultured kid! hehe.
Here are some photos I took of him. Isn’t he just adorable?
