1 1/2 Birthday!!!

Adler turned 18 months last weekend and we celebrated to the fullest! He is a December baby and sometimes celebrations in December get lost in all of the Christmas festivities. We have decided, until Adler tells us otherwise, that we will celebrate his half birthday instead of his real birthday. June is a much better time for pool parties :)
He chose to have a Mickey Mouse pool party! It was so much fun!
I made him a yummy Mickey Mouse cake, along with colorful cupcakes for his friends :)
I also made him the traditional Birthday shirt! Complete with a 1 1/2 :) This photo was taken after the party. He wanted to carry all of the balloons around! (please ignore my messy house LOL )

*Our immediate family will still have cake and celebrate our sweet boy in December as well.

I hear ya on December birthdays. My husband, my oldest son and I all have birthdays in one week, two weeks before Christmas. The only good thing about that is I can ignore my birthday and be 29 for a few years!

My daughter's b-day is Dec 1, 2007 and we have decided to celebrate her 1/2 birthday too! Half birthdays in June are fun!

Crafty Little Beana, you threw an adorable party! Cake AND cupcakes! Saucy is impressed.

I especially lurrve the idea of a half-birthday for December babies... any excuse for cupcakes.

Great idea! I think it's important for the kids to have a special day to themselves and I can imagine how hard it would be in December.
