Lil' one is either learning how to win favours or she is really more meticulous then her che-che.

Well, my two kids are different (apart from their horrible and crappy ways of eating which they are the same!).

Aricia, I've realised, wants perfection. When she was wearing her (fake) crocs, she'd always look down to the jimbits and make sure her Tinkerbell is straight. Walk and then she'll look again' bend down to adjust Tinkerbell. It can get real frustrating especially when you're pressed for time and a girl keeps stopping your tracks.
Then she keeps changing her clothes, she wants to be clean and one tiny dirty spot on her shirt she'd demand to be changed. She'd fuss until you change her.
Oh well! That's a Virgo!!

The article below is extracted from
Highlighted in RED are what I found to be true.

Those born under the sign of Virgo are inquisitive, dexterous, particular and seek perfection. Virgo is an earth sign, mutable in quality and ruled by the planet Mercury. In the search for perfection they can be critical, both of themselves and others. They are noted for being 'picky' and have a reputation for being super fussy. (until I want to vomit blood!!)

They are generally health conscious and this can develop into obsession if taken too far. A Virgo is probably the most body conscious of all signs and the Virgo child needs time and privacy to become acquainted with his or her own body, developing realistic expectations of his body and his own physical limitations.

She will seek perfection in herself and try to be the perfect child. He may feel inadequate and even a failure if he is unable to live up to the unrealistic expectations he sets for himself.
(Ehh... can be good and bad. Maybe she'll try to excel in her studies so I don't have to push her too much or worry too much over her)

These traits apply in some manner for any child with Sun, Moon or ascendant in the sign of Virgo, also if there is a strong Virgoan flavour in the chart or if Mercury is in a strong aspect to Sun, Moon or ascendant. Bookmark this site!

Virgo baby

Cries when in physical distress and requires changing immediately he becomes wet or soiled.

Responds better to routine than the unexpected.

Observant and alert.

Enjoys cuddles, being clean, routine , eye contact, interaction, soft clothing.

Doesn't like physical discomfort, surprises.

Virgo baby

6 - 18 months

Becoming methodical.

Enjoys pulling things apart and putting them back together. Toys such as stacking cups, blocks, large lego etc are ideal at this stage.

Alert and curious, taking note of everything that is happening around him.

Likely to begin talking early and become intrigued with labels.

Enjoys nature and will begin to show a deep feeling and respect for both animals and plants.

He will enjoy being outdoors but may react to changes in temperature.

She will explore cautiously and is generally quite careful, fearing injury.

Enjoys stimulating toys, communication, cuddles, encouragement, choices.

Doesn't like hurting himself, making mistakes, the unexpected, conditional love.

Virgo baby

18 months - 3 years

Shy and curious, quietly seeking out information.

Intelligent and intense, constantly asking questions and integrating information.

Remaining cautious, he values organisation and may even develop his own rituals for day to day activities.

Can be anywhere from tidy and meticulous, bordering on compulsive, to totally chaotic and disorderly. This is something that will become quite a familiar pattern as this child grows, trying out different identities, fluctuating from the neatness freak to the ultimate slob, either way it will be done to perfection.
(she's so perfect that when she throws her toys on the floor in her "mood", she throws them in one spot.?!?!?)

He may be a little hesitant at trying out new skills until he feels he can do the task well.

If he didn't speak early he will now begin speaking in full sentences, confident in his ability.

She will enjoy being helpful, particularly with little tasks around the home, although as the attention span is still short, he may lose track of what he is doing and not quite make it through to completion.

He is also likely to become curious about health, illness and his own body.

Toilet Training will go quite smoothly if you use clear and reasonable explanations and reason. She will be eager to accomplish this skill to stay clean and comfortable and unless there is some physiological problem usually gets through this process easily and quickly. Occasional accidents may occur as he becomes so engrossed in other activities he forgets. In this case respond with as little fuss as possible and if he is expected to clean up after himself, quietly, he will very quickly learn to pay more attention to his physical needs. Discretion and privacy, along with clear explanations of what is required, will see this skill accomplished in an easy and quick fashion.

He enjoys honest reasons and explanations, cuddles, experimentation, room for error, encouragement to play and have fun, limits, choices.

He doesn't like chaos ( unless it is of his own making), lack of information, being pushed beyond his abilities, lack of boundaries, dirt.

Virgo baby

3- 6 years

Usually modest and cautious but may appear arrogant or over confident as he becomes more comfortable.

Enjoys working out problems and fixing things.

Likes trying out new ideas or solutions and enjoys sharing these with others.

Would prefer to share ideas than feelings.

Can become irritable or fidgety if scared or nervous and needs to be taught how to express his feelings and that it is OK to feel this way.

Needs encouragement to be herself and not to conform for the sake of making others feel better. This includes within the family, as there can be a tendency to always try and be the 'perfect' child.

He continues to try out different roles and may show contradictions, such as being compassionate for the sick or injured but shying away from emotional suffering. Swinging from loud to withdrawn, compulsively tidy to messy, content to miserable etc. He may be uncertain as to how to get what he needs and will try out different tactics until he finds the right one.

He will always be kind and gentle but occasionally may need to be reminded of these qualities within himself if he gets stuck in one of his more negative moods.

He enjoys experimentation, doing things his own way, honest responses, guidance, choices and alternatives.

He doesn't like criticism, disappointment, substitutions, being stuck with the jobs no-one else wants.

Virgo baby

And she seems more 懂事, when she sees me packing che-che's school bag (that girl is so prissy... complain this/complain that until I get fed up. Everytime I have to remind her to pack her bag etc.. until sometimes I get frustrated I end up doing it for her) she runs to her bag and pack in her diapers; checks her small towel and extra clothes. So sweet.... She's been doing that for days now that I think she's beginning to feel it's her routine. Well done, Aricia! See! My lil' girl can be sensible but she's also too hyper active/noisy and ... my great entertainer!

2 days ago, she almost fell but luckily she was quick to hold her balance. That girl was too engrossed listening her che-che's complains that she wanted to reach out her right hand on hold on the sofa and try to lean on the sofa on her side. That girl didn't realise she was a distance from the sofa and almost fell like a domino. The quick-thinking gal, crossed her leg to support herself. She then move her right leg back so she was standing. In that quick 1 second, she went "Wo...oh...." and the expression in her eyes?? Was so cute like as if she was trying to laugh at herself for the silly judgement she made. It's little things like this that make me happy and look beyond the daily frustrations I feel as a SAHM.

Singing - She hears her che-che sings and she follows. She was heard singing the Lucky In My Life(english part only) before. Hee! Now that her che-che has to practice this song 小小羊儿要回家 for a performance, daily. Aricia also knows the song..... even before the che-che reaches the part, she sings shouts out loud 咿呀嘿呀嘿. And you know what? That girl is so 长气, she can really hold her 嘿 long. Needless to say every mornings I have 2 girls singing behind me, oh boy! that really kept me awake!
