I am the utmost personification of a math geek. I despise the Gregorian calendar for so many reasons - and this is one of them. Don't get me started on the United States' refusal to use the metric system!
I consider 13 weeks to be three months. Because (excluding leap years)...
365 days / 7 days to a week = 52.14 weeks
52.14 weeks / 12 months = 4.35 weeks to a month
4.35 weeks * 3 months = 13.05 weeks
For all practical purposes - like, when people ask how old she is - I usually just use the number of the day of her birth as the milestone or marker so that the xxth of every month adds another month to her age. Or if I'm crabby, I give them the number of days since her birth.
