For everyone else who welcomed a new family member into the world today:
The Taurus child is very sweet and loving. While a baby, she loves to be caressed and embraced. She is the child who always wants to be with her parents and is very affectionate with everybody in the family. The child of this sign, boy or girl, will be healthy and strong. She pays much attention to food; she can eat almost everything and in large quantities. Her parents should start early to teach her good eating habits as she has a fixed nature and whatever she learns or gets used to, will be very difficult for her to change. She loves candies and chocolates and she tends to be overweight.
She is usually quiet and pleasant. She is emotionally stable, seldom gets depressed, and rarely displays aggressiveness or impulsiveness. She behaves properly even among strangers, but if she is the centre of attention, she freezes up. She is one of the most stubborn persons in the zodiac. It is very difficult to make her change her mind; to threaten her with any kind of punishment makes her even more stubborn. The Taurus child can become very shy or rigid as an adult if she is pushed constantly by her parents to do things she does not want to do. The best way to treat her is with love. A kiss, an embrace and a lovely smile can work best to make her less obstinate. Colours and sounds also affect her emotions. Vivid colours like red, orange, etc. disturb her, while soft colours like light rose and blue, make her feel better. The effect is similar with sounds. Taurus Baby is very sensitive even as a baby. She will do things only if they are reasonable to her. She needs to know only the truth, without a lot of complex explanations. Parents must talk to her calmly and logically.
She has an instinctive affinity for music and the arts. It is a great idea to teach her to sing or play an instrument. She may love drawing, painting, or creating things in clay. She is very creative, and may be the best worker in her class at school. She is very obedient but her mind is usually slow. She needs time to do things. She has good memory and she does not forget what she has seen or was taught. She does not lose her toys, or personal belongings. She is a bit fearful; she does not like darkness, or ghost stories. She has a romantic imagination. If she grows up in a peaceful home, with love and without pressure on her, she will be strong, confident and very affectionate with her parents and family.
