12 and counting

So, my son is 12 months and two weeks old. Or he's 12 1/2 months old. Sometimes I say he just turned one. I feel a little odd when people ask how old he is now-a-days (especially like yesterday when someone asked if he was two years old and I replied, no he just turned one).

Do I continue with the month by month counting, but that seems a little odd (sorry to those who go by that after 12 months). But when he's 13, 14, 15 months old, do I say he turned one in April?

Its strange how clothes continue to count in months, 12, 18 & 24 months along with toys. I find my self counting to myself trying to figure out when Drew would turn these many months to pin point the correct age category for his toys (forget clothes, he's already close to moving out of some of his 18 months clothes into 24 month ones, pictured here in 24 months PJ's).

So, I'm in this predicament. I don't want to have to keep counting in my head on how many months he is turning since we hit the one year mark, but is that what everyone knows? Would I have to say when he turns 15 months old in July to have the person asking understand that he turned ONE three months ago? Or can I just say, he turned one in April or he'll be a year and a half in October? What would you do/have done?

For now "he turned 1 in April", after January "He will be 2 in April"

I completely agree with um, Grandpa, lol. But in the fall I would just say "about a year and a half"
