Children’s Day!


This past Sunday was Children’s Day in Japan and my husband’s parents sent us some things to celebrate. I already wrote about the koinobori (carp streamers) and the kabuto (samurai helmet) that families with boys display in their homes before the special day, but we also received a mini jinbaori (samurai vest) for E to wear.

It’s pretty fancy, and E was only interested in trying to eat the collar, so we just put it on him for a few minutes to snap a quick photo, but it was worth it. He’ll grow into it better over the next few years too. ♡

Maybe next year, when the little guy is eating real food, we’ll make the traditional mochi (rice cakes) that are served on this day.

Here’s to a healthy, happy baby!
