Any longer than that and you might pick them up only to find the house destroyed and grandparents frazzled beyond belief.

12 Tips For Building The Baby's Vocabulary
Building a baby's vocabulary starts right away with interactions with mom and dad. Don't worry; you won't need to start studying a long vocab list for your newborn baby. Vocabulary in the first couple years of life is built very naturally. This doesn't mean that mom and dad don't have to think about it at all though. Making an effort to add more words to your baby's day will pay off in the long run.
Research shows that children living in homes with college-educated parents are exposed to much more vocabulary at home.
This doesn't mean you need a degree to help grow baby's vocabulary. Start by narrating your day. It may seem silly at first, but soon you'll get used to it. Instead of cutting up a banana silently, tell the baby, "Mom is using this sharp knife to cut up a banana. Do you see this yellow fruit? It's called a banana." Before you know it, you'll be chatting away all the while baby is soaking everything in. Baby needs to hear words over and over again until he's ready to take a stab at it himself. Hearing the words over and over helps to build his confidence even before he's ready to start talking.
11 Cancer Wants To Be Close To Mom
The Crab of Cancer loves safety and security. Comfort, reliability and protection are top needs for a Cancer baby.

Being close to and in sight of a safe adult will be very important to a Cancer baby. Some parents might find this troubling as a Cancer can sometimes seem clingy. Not every parent is ready to have a child attached at the hip for the next 5 or 6 years or more. Intuitively, parents might feel that keeping space between them and the Cancer baby will help the baby to gain independence. This usually will backfire. Instead of becoming more independent, the Cancer will grow even more dependent. Instead, shower this baby with tons of snuggles and hugs. This will reassure the Cancer baby that all is well with the world. They'll feel confident that mom and dad will always be there for them. When the Cancer baby has this confidence, they'll be ready for some more independence. They'll start to venture out on their own.
What will be a Cancer's first word? Surely, "hug"! They won't be able to get enough hugs and will want one all the time.

A Pisces can sense the underlying hurt and pain of others. They embrace their healing spirit and try to bring forth learning and healing for others. If gone unchecked, this can create co-dependent relationships and can drain a Pisces of their natural charm and charisma. It is said that even therapists have a therapist. That's because you can't continually heal another person without looking out for yourself too. A Pisces freely gives of themselves.
One of the first phrases a Pisces baby will learn is "Love you." This is because of their giving spirit and free flowing love.
A parent of a Pisces shouldn't be too surprised if they find their parenting journey healing. They will have a lot to learn from their little ball of love and should be open to this experience.
