Baby Capricorn
The Capricorn child may be born looking like an old soul. This physical attribute will shift as the baby finds its childhood bearing, but the presence of an "old soul" will be apparent throughout life. There is a serious nature about Capricorn and a great determination to succeed. This personality trait will be become apparent as the child learns to walk and take care of its own basic needs (dressing, potty training, etc.). Parents may find this impressive focus "adorable," but it is important not to minimize the seriousness Capricorn children bring to these tasks. They tend to set ambitious goals and meet them when they are encouraged to be true to themselves.

Capricorns may have pronounced foreheads and remarkable eyes. As children, they do not readily participate in frivolous games and activities, preferring to learn and apply their knowledge to acquire greater skill. Games like chess may be preferred. Capricorn children will treasure the parent who teaches them practical skills. There is also a great respect for manner and tradition in this personality. Your child may show an interest in older cultures such as Japan, China, and even Europe. Exposure to these cultures through fairytales, children's books, and videos will be a delight for your young Capricorn.

Capricorn children may feel extremely empathic when forming relationships with peers although they may not always have the words to express the deep emotions they experience. Your support in connecting emotions with language will be vital to their development. Foundation and structure is essential to this sign. Young Capricorns will be conscious of their foundation from a young age. The best way to show your respect for your Capricorn child is through regularity and dependability.

Mary Journal: 4 weeks

You're exactly the weight and length that Gavin was when he was born.  You've grown out of your five newborn cloth diapers, and are now in the diapers you'll be in through potty training.  It's very nice to have a big stash to diaper you from! 

You hold your held up, and you interact quite a bit with me when we're face to face, or rather, cheek to cheek.  You quiet immediately just being picked up into my arms, and that warms my heart to no end, for these days are fleeting.  You really love being wrapped as I go about the day with things to do.

You're finding the rhythm in the 24 hour day, and sleeping more through the night.  You start out sleeping next to my bed in a bassinet, but somewhere in the dark hours, you make your way to me and remain there until around 6:30am, when your day begins.  A lot of times, you're awake for an hour, then you go back to sleep until 9:30am.  At that point, the whole house is all a bustle as Dad leaves for work, and your brother and I eat breakfast.  You're up until about 11 or so for a quick cat nap, then up until your brother goes down for a nap.  All in all, you're awake for about four or five hours during the day, and only waking twice during the night.  You nailed the night is for sleeping thing pretty much when you were a week old.  You only wake for a fresh diaper or milk, then it's back off to dreamland.

I'm so beyond in love with you.  Your brother has also taken quite a shine to you.  He still calls you "he", but we're working on it.  He likes touching your soft head (full of strawberry blond hair, by the way!), and touching your feet.  He thinks it's really neat when you look right at him.  He shares his blue bear with you, which is h-u-g-e, since that bear is very special to him.

You're growing fast, as babies do, but I'm relishing each and every phase of it.
