Your Baby Is 52 Weeks Old!

Happy birthday to baby! It's perfectly normal for parents to feel a mixture of pride at seeing how far you've come and sadness at how quickly your little one has gone from baby to toddler. Enjoy your day together -- this is the beginning of an exciting new stage in both of your lives.

Baby 1.0
In addition to a fab first birthday party, baby needs to fit in a doctor's appointment this month. Your ped will check baby's growth and development, just like previous well-child visits.

To-do:
> Move to the toddler board
> Take baby to the doc for a checkup
> Read what other moms say about TV

[ tip ] Take your car seat to your local National Highway Traffic Safety Administration office to make sure it fits safety standards.

> Chat with other moms
