To celebrate my baby's 1/2 birthday, I made 1/2 a cake. I got this great idea from Elise. Like her, I plan to celebrate my girls' 1/2 birthdays with 1/2 a cake and a homemade meal they've chosen.
For my baby's 1/2 birthday I made this cake (she's obviously still too young to choose meals), which we've made before. (It's delicious). My daughters loved this idea. One of my daughters had read about 1/2 birthdays in one of her Baby-sitters: Little Sister Karen books. She wasn't sure 1/2 a cake was a good idea though. (Won't we want a whole cake?) We also sang 1/2 of the birthday song as my daughter said that's what happened in her book.
