Lupton on age

When Jenny was born her life was measured first in hours, then days, then weeks.

At about sixteen weeks it turned to months — four months, five months, eighteen months — until two, when you measure your child’s age in half years.

Then gradually the measurement of her life became whole years.

Now they’re measuring what’s left of it in weeks again.
