Looking forward into the future

I read a fun article about your child's personality based on their birthdays..seems pretty accurate.
Boy am I gonna have my hands full once Ava is older...yipes

YOUNG LEO - AVA PAIGE
Leo children are rays of light - playful, willing to be the center of attention, always ready to put on a show. This child is highly entertaining and able to assess the presence of an audience with surprising sophistication. In infants you may notice his showmanship just by their alert and pleasant nature, like stars ready to go onstage. There is warmth and charm about little Leos. As the baby grows into a toddler, there will be a marked agility with the body, a natural athleticism, good balance, and physical features such as a wide brow or a big head of hair. Leo children are natural stars and may need a little help when it comes to fitting in with their peer group. They are naturally popular, but may have issues when it's not their turn with a toy or game, or simply not their turn to shine. Rebuffs or accidental slights might be taken as deep insults. Imagine a cat getting water poured on its fur! At these junctures, help your little Leo understand that they are not the target of ridicule, even though they feel terribly humiliated because it means so much to them to be loved, adored, even worshipped! Remember, many actors, rock stars, and politicians are Leos, so you have a big personality on your hands! Leo is a fire sign and thus warm, affectionate and sexually uninhibited. Encourage your child's free expression with the body, maybe introducing dance lessons when he or she is ready. Some kind of physical exercise that channels all that fiery exuberance is recommended, lest the energy be repressed or express itself in unproductive ways. Be the parent who gently reminds your son or daughter about boundaries and limits, their own and other people's, so that you are a trusted source of support, not a critical judge.


YOUNG AQUARIUS - PARKER SHANE
Your Aquarian child will show remarkable alertness as an infant and toddler. The attribute common to most Aquarians is a love of learning. Their astonishing ability to grasp concepts will put your child ahead of peers in the early years. You are likely to hear "oh, what a bright child!" time and again. However, there is a tendency to overlook details and skip the mundane aspects of learning. Eventually, you will need to help your child slow down and complete the necessary steps in order to shine consistently and with deep inner satisfaction. Reading is a great way to build the relationship you want to have with an Aquarian child. There is all the imaginative fun of reading, wherein your child can experience the delight of fantasy, which Aquarius is particularly able to focus on. There is also the practical matter of understanding each word as it appears in a sentence, which requires patience and persistence. If you are there to help your child learn to read, your role as a disciplinarian will be better accepted in later years. Aquarian children are naturally popular with others because they are such good and loyal friends. They may display an ability to mediate other children's disagreements and thus gain a reputation for being intelligent and fair. A feeling of superiority may overcome your little Aquarius when faced with peers who are not as gifted in the social arena. Help them develop the personal boundaries to be able to move on with their own ideas and projects without criticizing or patronizing peers who can't keep up! You are blessed with a freedom-loving child. Give your Aquarians the independence they naturally crave and you are likely to find them coming to you for reassurance and affection. Limit their freedom and they will find ways to escape the confines of your affections to get the space this Air sign needs to feel well and succeed.
