A Bar Mitzvah is not related to the week the boy was born, it's actually the day he turns 13 according to the Hebrew calendar. 

The weekly portion of the Torah reading, is not according to the week he was born, but rather to the week he turns 13, which might be different that year than on the year he was born. 

In fact, the weekly portion of the Torah reading, is not the main thing of a Bar Mitzvah. The main thing of a Bar Mitzvah is being obligated by Jewish law to observe all Mitzvahs [commandments].
