OKUIZOME (First Meal) is Japanese tradition that parents carry out on the 100th day after the birth of their child. We did this early on Remi’s 63rd day, because my mother was here (and she could cook the traditional meal!). By performing the ritual, they hope their child will always have good food in abundance and will never go hungry for the rest of her life. We added a sparkle, just to make it more festive. Of course Remi cannot eat anything but milk yet, but we pretended to eat adult food at this ceremony. We hope that she enjoys all types food!
