It's June 15th, 2008 - MIN JAE IS 100 DAYS!!!
Celebrations & photos have been going for about 4 days now. Min Jae is 100 days old, which is a really important milestone in Korean culture. We've taken a bunch of photos of him wearing his $1000 gold rings and bracelet, their really soft and read on the back 9999 which is the equivalent to 24K. Unbelievable, I couldn't imagine receiving this back home, especially at such as young age. So, I've met Mi Sung's grandmother and grandfather on both her mother's and father's side of the family. I've also met her father's sister (Como=father's sister/aunt) and mother's sister (EMO=mother's sister/aunt). It's interesting how long it takes to break into Korean family culture. It took me 7 years to meet a few members of her extended family, while, Mi Sung met my entire family at a wedding in Pennsylvania and the rest of my relatives still in Windsor. Hard to imagine, but this is it. Life's been interesting with this new addition to our family. Matthew James (officially) but to everyone in Korea he is Min Jae. The summer is here! Summer vacation begins in two weeks!!! Blessings & Peace & Love go out to all our friends (Windsor, Toronto, Thunder Bay, Korea, USA, UAE, Hungary, UK, etc..& Have a Safe & Happy Summer 2008!!!
