Disclaimer: I realize that a Half-Birthday party is ridiculous, over the top, and completely unnecassary. But I must also say that in my defense, a celebration really isn't ever a bad thing. Festive decorations, a matching outfit, and a get-together with loved ones?
Sounds good to me. I will take advantage every time.
I admit it, I initially heard of the idea for a half-birthday party on Pinterest (where most of my ideas are born.) It seemed like the perfect chance to get our families together while marking a milestone for our baby girl. Of course, I had to promise my husband that I wouldn't go over the top.
In other words, I had to resist my temptation for invitations complete with Waverly's 6-month chalkboard photo. It was hard, but I did it. I had to settle for a (half) birthday cake with a cake-bunting on top. And 3 (teal-colored) balloons.

|Had to include one close-up. That face.|
|This child certainly doesn't lack for attention. I feel fortunate to have family that doesn't think I'm completely nuts to want to celebrate such an occasion. And who actually take part in the madness. :) |
|YES ... we did sing Happy Birthday to our 6-month old. I considered it practice for the real thing come this July.|
|With my girl. It's true. I dressed in the theme colors of the evening. Just couldn't resist.|
Happy Half-Birthday, Waverly Maye.
