On August third, 2021, my one and only grandchild, Chloe, turned one year old. Her parents had a little party to mark the occasion.

Chloe’s party is ready to go!
She likes the flowers 🙂
Her favorite food is a strawberry.
With her Uncle Jason
A traditional custom at Chinese first birthday parties is to surround the child with objects representing future careers. Chloe chose to be a gamer, which delighted her Uncle and Dad, with a backup career as a writer or a lawyer.

The best present is a baby!
