Here is one way using POSIX: (you can create a function to do this)

> x <- as.POSIXlt('2005-12-16') # a date
> x

[1] "2005-12-16"
> dput(x) #structure of the date

structure(list(sec = 0, min = 0, hour = 0, mday = 16, mon = 11,

year = 105, wday = 5, yday = 349, isdst = 0), .Names = c("sec", "min", "hour", "mday", "mon", "year", "wday", "yday", "isdst" ), class = c("POSIXt", "POSIXlt"))
> x\$mday <- 1 # reset to first of the month
> seq(x, by='month', length=2)[2] # select 2nd number in the sequence
[1] "2006-01-01 EST"
