My girlfriend is holding Grace and a lotus leaf while I am carrying some food, we are on our way to meet the monk. In the picture on the right, I am offering some food to the monk. We have gone to meet the monk for the fire-hair shaving ceremony.
 
The monk was chanting and putting his hand over Grace's head in the left picture. And the picture on the right, he is cutting some of her hair without touching her head at all! This is an important ceremony for Buddhists when their baby is one month old. The same thing happened to me when I was a baby.
