As a first-time parent I eagerly awaited every single developmental milestone. I wanted to know how soon my baby would crawl, talk, and walk. And then my baby started crawling, and very quickly I realized that the game changes when those milestones are reached. All of a sudden I couldn't keep up with my standing, cruising, walking, and climbing child. I couldn't keep up with all the baby-proofing I had to do, either.
My second baby, on the other hand, didn't seem to have any interest in crawling. Instead, he was content to be carried everywhere in a sling, and was happy to sit and play on a blanket until someone moved him to a new spot. It was actually kind of eerie. There was such a difference in when my kids became mobile that I started to wonder if you might be able to predict when your baby will crawl for the first time. And while I'm not generally a huge believer in the Zodiac, I figured it couldn't hurt to explore all my options.
I decided to check out my own kids' astrological profiles to see if they had anything to say about their need to move and wiggle. Much to my surprise, they were pretty damn accurate in describing my kids' temperaments, energy levels, and desire to explore their world. So if you're wondering when you need to finish baby proofing, want to know when exactly your baby will finally start to crawl, or simply want to check out their profile and have a bit of fun, read on for some cosmic insight:
