Celebrating Baby’s First 100 Days

G has made it to 100 days!

Perhaps more to the point, we have made it to 100 days!

In certain parts of Asia, namely China and Korea, the milestone of reaching 100 days is celebrated much like a child’s 1st birthday. It’s said that celebrating the first 100 days of life can lead to a 100 year lifespan. We decided to mark the occasion by going to Cambridge’s best Chinese restaurant with some friends who were visiting from Taiwan.

Ok. So I totally failed to take a photo of the food to due to wayyyyy too much excitement and drooling over said food. But it was as greasy and delicious-looking as this beaut.

After stuffing our faces with a Chinese feast, we headed over to some friends’ for afternoon tea. Their daughter is 3 days older than G and born in the same hospital. We were complete pigs – all in the name of baby – and we devoured scones, macarons and ginger baby-shaped biscuits (only just realised the weirdness of that bit).

I rather like this tradition of marking 100 days – we’re just over the 3 month mark and the babies are becoming more fun to interact with by the day. Sleep is a little more regular and we are all in some sort of rhythm (not quite a routine…) that makes life a little more predictable. Well done to all the babes and parents who have made it to 100 days!
