Remember the baby shower I posted about a while ago? Well, yesterday was the baby’s first month*! Time flies, huh?

Adam and I had lots of fun picking out something for baby Jake – there are so many cool toys for little ones these days – and then I had even more fun trussing up my first gift of the season (yes, I totally am that person). I even busted out my new calligraphy nibs and did a super quick flourished tag to match the vintage colours of the wrapping.

*For my non-Asian readers, it’s a Chinese tradition to celebrate a baby’s first month with a big party for friends and family. The new parents give out dyed red eggs, and ang ku kueh in gender-specific shapes: pointed ones for boys, flat ones for girls.
