My son was a premiee and spent a month in the NICU, the day he finally came home happened to be the day he turned a month old. We went out to dinner to celebrate with some relatives. So every month I try to do something special for him. It usually involves getting a cupcake from Crumbs (because I love them, and this month was the first time he actually tasted it) and I will get him a little gift to mark that milestone like a new book or a little toy or something (nothing big). Well in February he will be turning 6 months and I want to give him a "half-a-birthday" party. Nothing huge. Just a little party celebrating the fact that he's here (my little guy went through so much) and all that he's overcome (everyday he proves those doctors so wrong and it puts a feeling in me that I can't even describe!)
Anyway his dad is saying it will kill the excitement leading up to that big first birthday (and I've been planning that party since I first laid eyes on him lol).
So I wanted others thoughts. Would/Have you ever done a "half-a-birthday" party? Do you think it will kill the excitement about the actual First bday? If you attended a "half-a-birthday" party would you be reluctant to go to the actual bday party 6 months down the line.
