I know that we, her parents, will always make a big deal on December 29th no matter what. Period, end of discussion. But what about family and friends?
I have a cousin who was born on December 26th and I never remember doing anything special for his birthday and am even guilty of giving him both a Christmas and Birthday present combined. And that's gotta suck!! Particularly when you're a kid! (I'm sorry cousin!!)
That all left me thinking about "half birthdays." I honestly never even heard of such a thing until I saw an episode (oh boy is this confession going to be embarrassing - particularly when you take my age into account) of the new 90210 where one of the characters celebrated her Half Birthday every year because her mom, who was a drunken narcissist, always blew off her real birthday.
And now that I have Lovie and take pictures every time she's a month older, I began to wonder if I should throw some sort of Half-year birthday party for her. I asked some friends and while they thought it would be a good idea, they also felt that she should definitely have a 1 year Birthday Party, too. Makes sense. Definitely cannot skip the big 1 year Party, regardless of who might or might not show up.
I don't know. Time will tell as to how this will all work out, I suppose, but for now, I think we'll just stick with doing a 1 year birthday party.
All that said and done - and really pretty much unrelated to the point of this post - I found this on Etsy through littleoneboutique:

Not the baby!! The onsie with 1/2 on it! How stinkin' cute is that?! Even if we don't do a party, I still want to get it because, well, she'll only be a 1/2 year old once and it's damn cute in my opinion!
So now here's what I need your help with: Should I order the 1/2 image in RED with white dots or ORANGE with white dots. I love the yellow, but I think the red or orange will pop even more in photos. So I'll let you all decide for me, if you will.
