  • Yes, after 2. Then it goes to 2 1/2, 3 3 1/2, etc. =)

  • I think at about two years. I've started saying "He'll be 2 in August" when people ask rather than saying the months, but sometimes I will say 22 months.

  • After she turned 1, it was just, "she's one" after 6 months, "she's 1 1/2" and so on.

  • around 2, when they stop referring to milestones by the appropriate month - But I love it when kids say they are 16 and a half, as if that makes all the difference - I am now officially 38 and a quarter :-)
