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.
