Today celebrating my Okuizome was a little late because this traditional ceremony must be held when a baby reaches her 100 - 120 days of living in this world so that means ages between 3 to 4 months. I will be seven months old very soon so I should say its really late. lol. Its good to know there is a saying "better late than never" I heard from mom so we decided to celebrate it today.

By the way Okuizome is an ancient ritual and  celebration  for a baby wherein food is serve for her hoping she will have enough food to eat and not be hungry as she grows older and the one who will feed the baby  must be the oldest person in the family or relatives.

The food they served to me was a grilled fish, some vegetables, soup, sekihan and other Japanese foods that looks really yummy that is why I was busy grabbing the plate in front of me. Can you see me looking mysteriously on the grilled fish  in the second picture? hehe I was really hungry.

But the big and sad fact about this ritual for a baby is that the feeding were all fake , yes  ... because the serve food were still not be given to the baby, so when dad feed me  while mom taking  some photos  he were just pretending giving me the food  while me left hanging opening my mouth  that in the end it was still my baby food I had for dinner.  What would you feel if someone serves delicious food in front of you and just vanished like a bubble? Oh how sad.....hmmm!
