You know, it never occurred to me to look up what the kids’ astrological signs were until this morning as Rosebud was attempting to claw her way into the shower with me (this child is obsessed with water!) and I mentioned to A, “geez, this kid must be an Aquarius or something”. She rolled her eyes…’cause i guess if you know anything about anything, you’d know that Aquarius babies are born early in the year. Not November. Whatever.
So, my curiosity peaked, I jumped over to this site to see what exactly the kids were.
First up was Sprout. He’s a Gemini. And this is what they had to say about that:
Gemini, The Twins
Your baby is blessed with a quick, engaged mind and needs constant stimulation. Read to him several times a day, and make sure you have lots of little objects (rattles, squishy toys) for him to play with. Satisfy his natural curiosity — and fend off restlessness — with pop-up toys, puppet shows, storytime at the library, and frequent field trips (such as to the supermarket or a fish store). A true chatterbox, your little one may be the first in his baby group to speak. Even if it sounds like gibberish, pay attention: In his mind, he always has something crucial to say.
Well, they hit the nail on the head with chatterbox. The child does not stop talking. He loves to be involved in a conversation and always has something critically important to add. I can also see the quick mind and need for constant stimulation – he is busy busy busy. What I’d like to know more about is the twin thing. Does that reference some type of dichotomous personality? As in, one twin is an angel and the other is…well, you know where I’m going with this. Because that would explain a lot.
Here’s Rosebud. She’s a Scorpio.
Scorpio: The Scorpion
Your child’s intensity and perceptiveness are striking (and at times challenging). Even as an infant, she’ll read and respond to your emotions, so manage your anger and frustration in front of her. Because your little one is especially determined to get her own way, you’ll need to put your patience in overdrive. And since Scorpions are prone to shyness in large social settings, make frequent eye contact and let her know you’re there to protect her. Also, keep your home well-stocked with objects that appeal to your child’s probing nature: She likes soft stacking rings, toys with different textures, and open-the-flap books.
Hmmm, this doesn’t quite feel like Rosebud to me. Certainly she’s unusually perceptive…I’ve said from the time she was little little that her eyes had a “knowing” way about them. Like she was reading me with every glance. And determined to get her own way? Absolutely. But she certainly isn’t shy. What about her zest for life and adventure? Her contagious laugh? Her love of attention?
Then it occurred to me that Rosebud was born early. According to her due date, she should have been a Sagittarius.
Sagittarius: The Archer
Optimistic, outgoing, and content, little Archers are true explorers. Put your baby in a carrier or stroller and she’ll happily go wherever you lead. Spend time roaming around the backyard and checking out the neighborhood: She needs lots of exercise for her physical and mental health. Your child will bounce back quickly from little spills and failures. But she also gets bored easily and constantly needs new toys. To hold her attention, read lots of stories about exciting adventures in faraway lands — and promise that she’ll get to visit them someday too.
Optimistic, outgoing and content? A true explorer? Ahhh, there’s my little girl. How interesting that she’s a blend of the two.
And just for fun, do you want to know what they said about me?
What a charmer you’ve brought into the world! Libras are blessed with grace and an inherent ability to captivate everyone around them. Give your social child ample opportunities to interact with her peers, such as baby classes and playdates (she’ll be Ms. Popularity long before she starts preschool). Consider throwing a big party for her first birthday — she’ll likely get a kick out of getting dressed up and being doted on by loved ones. And bust a move together: Libras love music and dancing.
Clearly they were right on with that one 😉
