Fairfield, CT, June 19, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Six months. A hundred and eighty-plus days. Twenty-six weeks. Half a year. Call it what you will, to a baby that's like...forever. A hard-won accomplishment. A major milestone in their little life.
Begs for a celebration, wouldn't you think? A half birthday party, to be technical.
And not just for baby. Parents deserve a little pat on the rear, too. Think of the hundreds of diapers negotiated. Feedings dispensed. Burps elicited. Countless hours of sleep forfeited.
Is it any wonder hordes of moms and dads aren't waiting till the big oh-one and are raising sippy cups to toast the half year mark? Just googling keywords like "half birthday ideas," "half birthday blogs," or "half birthday whatever" will clue you in on how enthusiastically people are embracing this burgeoning occasion, and the thousands of interesting ways they're celebrating it.
And the nice part is, it doesn't have to be an all-out bash like a first birthday party. We are talking half here. Keep it relaxed, informal, inexpensive. Instead of mailed invitations, evites will do fine (you can find a free one to email guests at halfbirthday.com). Only fun gifts with a "half" theme and a low price tag, $10 tops, should be allowed.
And please, you need only go half out for this. Half a ration of grog (juice) for the honoree and her little guests, half caffe coffee for the adults, half a cake, and an hour and a half at the most will result in a whole lot of fun. As for decorations and activities, again let half, and your imagination, be your guiding principle. You'll be surprised what neat ideas you'll hatch when you get going on this.
To see what other parents are doing to celebrate baby's midway day, and share in the ineffable joys they're experiencing at this stage in their child's development, read their half birthday blog entries, which are compiled daily at halfbirthday.com/blog-roundup.
