첫 돌 축하해, 아가야!


Explanation:
chut-dol chu-ka-hae, a-ga-ya!
An alternative to this can be "생일 (saeng-il) 축하해".

The "아가야!" is for better lovely expression for the baby. It correspond to "baby!"

생일을 진심으로 축하합니다! 이 책은 사브리나 이사벨라 디메사 공주님의 첫돌 생일을 맞이하여 드리는


Explanation:
I am assuming that this is an intended birthday message for a real princess. In that case, I think the message would have to be rather formal, using an honorific form of speech, as the actual readers of the message would be the royal parents of the baby. (The ending of the sentences below end with the more formal/polite "...입니다" as opposed to the more casual "...해" or "...야.")

생일을 진심으로 축하합니다! Happy birthday! / literal translation: I truly/sincerely congratulate you on your birthday! There is even a more polite word for birthday "생신" which is used when congratulating your elders such as your grandparents, but I think it might be too much to use this word for a one-year old baby.

이 책은 사브리나 이사벨라 디메사 공주님의 첫돌 생일을 맞이하여 드리는 선물입니다. This book is a gift for Princess Sabrina Isabella Dimesa on her first birthday.

neutral  organizer: For *real* princess, use "감축" or "경하." Absolutely most highest salute for princess. And further, "유모" is not proper. "Nanny Dimesa" maybe her parent or relative.

첫 돌 축하한단다.


Explanation:
If the above message is intended for a memo, "축 돌" is enough.

I think that Princess is not meant a *real* princess. For a girl, princess is used, and for a boy, prince; it is widely accepted in our Korean society. So "경하" or "감축" is not a proper expression. 경하 or 감축 was used in the Royal Society in Korea [Chosun Dynasity].

Pronunciation guide: 첫 돌 축하한단다. == Ch'ut-Dol Ch'uk-Ka-Hahn-Dahn-Dah.

축 돌 == Ch'uk-Dohl [U sounds like u in und (German, and)].

HTH.

CHU Chung-Ho

PS: Arlene Dimesa & Nanny Dimesa *maybe* at least parent or relative.
