*Ambitious and Passionate
*
2012 falls within the Year of the Dragon in the Chinese Zodiac. Dragons are known as one of the most powerful signs of the Chinese Zodiac. Dragon babies are determined and enthusiastic. They know what they want and will work hard and take risks to get it. But there’s a downside to too much energy and ambition: Dragon signs can be left feeling unfulfilled. That means you might need to engage baby more. Prepare to be running around the house chasing after your baby once he starts walking, but make sure he takes regular naps.

*Charismatic
*
Your baby is going to be a charmer! You already know she’ll be the center of attention at family gatherings, but expect her to be Miss Popularity everywhere you go!

*Leader
*
Of course, since baby’s charismatic and ambitious, he’ll also be a natural-born leader. He’ll be able to come up with creative ideas and get people to work as a team. President of his school’s student council to President of the United States? It could happen!

*Lucky in Love
*
This could be good and bad: On one hand, your baby will have plenty of admirers; on the other hand, well, she’ll have lots of admirers.
