How do I combine "one year old" with "1/2"

My nephew is 17 months old. In a few days, he'll make that 1.5 year marker. The sign for "a year old" is the finger drawn from the chin (combination of year and the number one). But for the half, it's the number one with number two just below it. It seems awkward. Is there a better/different way to make this message?

i see what you mean! but in ASL you would have to do that even though it is kind of awkward.
