A Close Look at the Royal Baby's Astrological Chart!
Congratulations to Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William on their first child: a cuspy Cancer with a Capricorn Moon and Scorpio rising. At 4:24 PM GMT on July 22, the royal baby -- all eight pounds and six ounces of him -- entered the world.
He's third in line to the crown (behind Princes Charles and William), and from the looks of his chart, he'd wear it well! With Scorpio on the ascendant and an eighth house Cancer Sun, he's set to be the strong, silent type who appreciates his privacy and is selective about whom he trusts (mostly family).

The baby's cosmic connection with his mother looks very strong, with the Moon nearly full in Capricorn -- only ten degrees away from Kate's Sun. A Sun-Moon connection is considered one of the strongest indicators of compatibility, and they've got it going both ways! Kate's Moon is also in Cancer, the sign of the baby's

And this morning, news broke that Penelope Cruz was safely delivered of (I'm getting into the British jargon, guys, next thing you know I'll be that person who accidentally-on-purpose calls apartments "flats") a daughter. No deets on the name or anything else yet, but the little lady joins Cruz and Javier Bardem's other child, Leonardo, 2 1/2.
I for one would be OK with skipping the St. Mary's scene and going right to Madrid to wait for a glimpse of Penelope, Javier and Baby Girl Cruz-Bardem. I think they would be touched by my act of

Now I don't know much about guns other than the fact that they kill people, but I'm really struggling with this now more than ever. Why? Because he's decided to push the issue. We've been married nearly 15 years and from the moment we were handed the keys to our first apartment, he's been telling me we needed to get one. "No, no, no," I told him, "We're fine without one. Guns make me uncomfortable." "Well, they shouldn't," he'd tell me. "That's what worries me most of all."
My husband grew up around guns. His father, a gunsmith, made guns an everyday part of his life from the time he was a wee thing. He learned how to shoot guns, how to handle them, and perhaps most importantly, how to respect them. It wasn't unusual for firearms or gun magazines to sit on the kitchen table. He and his siblings thought nothing of them and when it came time to use the guns for sport, these kids had remarkable aim. But this is where we differ.

I'm not really a royal watcher, but the one though that kept occurring to me during all the talk about whether Prince William and Princess Kate might name their baby Alexander or George was, "What will the baby's last name be? What is William's last name, for that matter?"Read More »from What the Royal Baby's Name Will Be and Why
I don't really know how all that royalty stuff goes down, so I thought I'd educate myself and break it down for you.
Turns out, being royalty and all, the baby doesn't require a last name. The baby will be referred to as His Royal Highness Prince (name) of Cambridge. However, if a surname is required, members of the royal household have quite a few options.
Let me break it down for you:
Before 1917, members of the British Royal Family had no surname, but only the name of the house or dynasty to which they belonged. Duke and Duchess of Windsor (Charles and Diana), for example. The Duke and Duchess of York (Andrew and Fergie) is another example of a house or dynasty.

I actually loved our daycare experience. After the minor hiccup of putting him in a situation that didn't meet our needs, we landed at a center near our house that was wonderful. Daycare became an integral part of the social fabric of all of our lives. The children and families we met there are still friends to this day. Even now, 5 years after C's first day in a classroom with a little redheaded boy only two days younger, they are fast friends who can tear up a playroom in a single bound. Moreover, he learned wonderful things at daycare. I asked him today what he remembered from his "old school" and he told me about a game he played with Miss M where he named the colors for different objects. Even though we're not a daycare family any longer, I remember the days of pick-ups and drop-offs fondly.

Courtesy of Baby BangsThere's plenty to be concerned about as a new parent--germs, learning curves, that weird little area called a soft spot. Now, I've yet to experience the joys of motherhood, but an infant's entirely natural lack of hair never really struck me as one of those things I may be "bothered by," as a recent New York Times headline suggests. Enter a terrifying product called Baby Bangs, which are essentially just headbands with hair attached. The company makes it sound a lot fancier, though: "Our patent pending HAIR+band accessory combination allows baby girls (with little or no hair at all) the opportunity to have a beautifully realistic HAIR style in a SNAP!! It's quick, easy and baby barely knows it's there."

An actual town crier announced the baby's arrival outside the hospital He's here! The heir to England's has arrived, and while we know his birth weight (8 pounds, 6 ounces) and time (4:24 p.m. GMT), what of his name?

- The baby's official title is His Royal Highness Prince [name goes here] of Cambridge.
- Just like Madonna and Cher, royals don't require a surname.
- If they do need a last name for some reason (you know, if they're taking the SATs or something) they'll use "Mountbatten-Windsor" or "Wales." We think it should be amended to Middleton-Windsor-Wales for their newest addition.
