I know! My sister-in-law insisted on telling my nieces age in weeks until she was about 5 months old. Drove me crazy!
Love that registry one too!

One of my co-workers was talking about her grandson this morning, who I learned is 26 months.

Somebody PLEASE explain the logic behind this....



I've been told by parents*, who were probably told by doctors, that a child's development/growth can be/is measured in weeks%. Such as "kid should be crawling by 7 months" is easier than "kid should be crawling by 7/12ths of a year" or "0.53 years". I guess it works fine for doctors plotting a child's development on a chart. And most parents adopt the doctor's parlance...

*After I asked them the very same question.

% More used in pregnancy were development is on a faster timeframe than months.
