Can anyone explain what 'cet.' means in the margin of baptism records, please?

Please may we have more detail as to when and where the baptism took place?
Could the entry be aet, short for aetat, referring to the age of the person concerned?

Is it not from the French for "this", meaning "of this parish"?

Thanks bibliojunkie and strawberrymivvy!
bibliojunkie, your explanation certainly makes sense as what I thought was 'cet' followed by a number, now looks like 'aet'.
