What to expect with a Virgo baby
According to Building Beautiful Souls a Virgo child is a thing of wonder – positively beaming with love. As a great listener and avid learning, young Virgos are sponges ready to soak up new skills and experiences. Because of this, they may gravitate towards toys that are beyond their age bracket and may read and write a little earlier than their peers.
They tend to be serious creatures who are dependable and analytical and sometimes a little bossy because they like to take the lead. Allowing them to help and be independent is key as you’ll find they thrive on helping others.
Virgo babies love to be busy babies and as they get older this will translate into their love of wanting to help others. They also tend to be little worry worts, so keeping them busy helps chase away the worries. They also tend to be messy, so big bibs are the way to go at mealtime!
- Love learning
Dependable, smart folk with a yearning to better themselves and the world have given these Virgos the traits they needed to make an impact on the world.
