Your Scorpio baby is powerful. When he is unhappy, you will know it! This simply means Scorpio is emotionally intense. Furthermore, this child knows if he likes something or doesn't like it. That is because the Scorpio’s world is black and white with little room for grey. Yes, this baby is willful, but determination and perseverance are marvelous qualities, even if society does not acknowledge that in a child. Think of Gen. George Patton, Richard Burton, Katy Perry or Margaret Atwood—we’re talking willful! Govern and channel this will. Do not break it.
Surprisingly, the Scorpio child likes boundaries and ritual, and respects regulations. Your Scorpio baby likes an organized environment around him. Scorpio children are often surprisingly mature.
Scorpio rules everything that is hidden. This means your Scorpio baby will love to play peekaboo. Later, the Scorpio child will delight in hide-and-seek, hiding from you every time you come home. This is also a child who likes to "hide" in costumes and masks. Scorpio children adore Halloween and are already thinking about their costumes in August. (I speak from experience.)
Scorpio children might be slow to potty train, so don't worry about this. It's just what it is.
Your Scorpio child might keep secrets or withhold information. Again, this is simply a Scorpio trait, which is why adult Scorpios often work in police agencies and security work. They love secrets!
Naturally, this child loves scavenger hunts and searching for Easter eggs.
