Our family celebrates a baby's 6-month birthday, one of my traditions that I started. We just have a small party with inexpensive gifts (hand held toy, t-shirt, or any small gift). I used to bake a cupcake just for the little one and they get to tear it to pieces. Well I found a store that lets you buy only one at a time and they decorate them so cute. So everyone else gets ice cream and the little one gets their own cupcake.

This is ridiculous unless you have a baby that is sick or going through a trauma. Celebrations mean nothing when you overdo them. It is like C-mas and anniversaries that are to be celebrated each year not each month, week, day and the rest of this nonsense. Kids get toys all the time and do not appreciate things anymore. Anniversary literally means yearly. donate to a children's charity or animal welfare or volunteer to help someone in the name of your child to remember how fortunate your family is and to be aware of how difficult life is for many others.
This is a wonderful idea! Six months is a huge milestone in a child's life. They're proud of it and it should be celebrated by family and friends. They need to know how special they are and this is another way to show them. Half birthday party supplies and ideas can be found at www.halfbirthdayparties.com.
