Here at Babyology, we are expecting quite a few babies in this new Chinese Year of the Snake so let’s take a look at what we are in for.
According to the Chinese Zodiac, the snake is believed to be aware, together and intuitive. Some characteristics of people born in the year of the snake are culture, grace, elegance, sophistication and materialism. I hope you have some pretty fancy baby gifts lined up if you are going to try to impress any little snakes this year.
Scratch below the surface and you will find that snake people are also wise, sympathetic, fortunate with money and determined. Their greatest allies are the ox and rooster.
In addition to the twelve animal signs of the Chinese zodiac, each one is accompanied by a particular element (Earth, Metal, Fire, Water, Wood) and 2013 brings us Water Snakes. The Water element is thought to deliver versatility and flexibility along with intelligence and wisdom. Our little snakes will be complex creatures!
Let little ones learn all about the story behind their zodiac sign with the delightful The Year of the Snake: Tales from the Chinese Zodiac book by Oliver Chin. It’s $15.25, with free delivery, from Book Depository.
Or read Sophie Snake gets in a twist to your little snake, (the images are insanely cute) from Book Depository for only $2.89, with free delivery. If you want to splash out on some serious quality for the particularly trendy bub, this beautiful FermLiving Mr Snake Pillow can be used as a tummy time pal for $140.
Of course, little snakes grow into big snakes, and here’s some known for their inherit sense of style – Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Jacqueline Kennedy , Liv Tyler, Oprah Winfrey, Queen Elizabeth I and Sarah Jessica Parker. So this fancy Lark Gypsy Chandelier may be an appropriate pick for $190.
