  • LMAO!!!!!!!!!! I had the saaaaame annoyance trying to figure it out. eventually i totally gave up and cheated. i check it out on www.lilypie.com so I label all my pictures "Molly is 1 year 5 months and 4 days old" lame... but I am super anal so it calms me in some sick way

  • You're right, weeks of age and months don't add up. Most people talk in weeks old until around 12- 16 weeks and then change to talking in months

  • I do it by month not week. So if your baby was born on the 20th then every 20th she is another month...it made it easier for me.

  • I only used weeks until he was about 20 weeks, then switched to months. It gets too hard to keep track of otherwise! Now he's 23 months, and as of the 31st he will just be "2" when I'm asked!

  • My daughter was born Feb. 25th and every 25th is a new month. Just keep track that way because when you get to her real birthday, that is considered her 1st birthday.
