Wowzers. My sweet and super cute new nephew Baby Tanner, also known as TanMan, or Tan Tan, or Tanner Banner, celebrated his very special 100 Day dinner here in Vancouver. Yes, he’s just a little 4 month old chubalub! He has the lightest ginger brown hair, pale alabaster skin and one double eyelid and one single eyelid… plus a little adorable Chinese face! And he actually has an all-natural mohawk…! Poh-poh and Gonge-gonge (Grandma and Gramps in Chinese — well actually, grandparents on your mother’s side — and the spelling of P&G varies from family to family) threw this 100 Day Chinese banquet at our fave family hot spot, Golden Ocean.
I love the names of Chinese restaurants. They can really do it up mythical styles! Golden Ocean, Pink Pearl, Flamingo, Shanghai Wonderful… like a magical, mystical world of bamboo forests, hazy sparkling skies and cool breezes. Imagine! Swimming through an ocean of GOLD? The MINDS of these people! ;)
Lobster, Peking duck, roast chicken, oodles of noodles… TanMan got a party worthy of a little Prince! If RT and I ever have kids, there will be definitely be a designated vegetarian’s table! Tanner was born in the Year Of The Tiger, so Auntie Lyndsay (also known as: ME, also known as Auntie Coco Cake) made special little tiger topped cupcakes for him and the kids, and classic swirl with rainbow sprinkles cupcakes for everyone else! The party was a total blast… and big brother Brody is a budding photographer. He’s 2.5 years old…! The photos he snapped were seriously cool!
The last two pics are of the family! Party Man Dan (that’s what I call my bro-in-law, or Party Man Dad) and my sis Leanne a.k.a Awesome Mommy of TanMan and Brody! :)
Welcome to the world, little TanMan! Can’t wait to see what kind of crazy little nutbar you will turn out to be…
Love, Auntie Lyndsay
