The Year of the Rabbit

Today is the beginning of the Lunar New Year. This year is the Year of the Rabbit, according to the Chinese Zodiac. So my little one, like his daddy, will be a Rabbit.
The Rabbit symbolizes such character traits as creativity, compassion, and sensitivity. Rabbits are friendly, outgoing and prefer the company of others. They also prefer to avoid conflict. In confrontational situations, Rabbits approach calmly and with consideration for the other party. Rabbits believe strongly in friends and family and lacking such bonds can lead to emotional issues.
I'm not usually one to follow the zodiac (Chinese or otherwise) but I find it interesting that Baby will share signs with his daddy. He will also (most likely, unless he comes very early) be a Taurus, like Daddy.

What does all that mean? Probably nothing. If Baby is like his daddy, we will get along well. If he inherits my personality, we will probably disagree on everything.


  1. :) I think this is really sweet. I like the thought of junior being like his daddy.

    Chances are though, when he's most acting like you, first it will drive you nuts. Then it will make you really really laugh.

  2. I do hope he inherits my taste in movies, books and music.

  3. Very cool. I hope baby's daddy feels honored.

    As far as disagreeing on everything if he inherits your personality, very true! I continually bang heads with my daughter who is most like me, over and over and over. And usually because she's doing things that drive me crazy about myself! Of course, that wasn't til she got older. You've got plenty of years for the disagreements to be charming, not nerve-grating. Enjoy!
