Benji can’t see more than 12 inches from his face yet, and all he can really make out are edges and faces, but that doesn’t stop him from looking around. Here are a few things he’s experienced lately.
Mommy feeding him (and getting in some reading, too):
Napping with Grandpa Joe:
Getting a snack from Grammy:
Sleeping with Daddy after an early-morning feeding fraught with tears:
Perhaps the observant among you notice a theme with Benji’s activities. That’s because eating and sleeping comprise 2/3 of his behaviors at this point (the final behavior, “outputting,” we don’t photograph, having our hands full and not needing to share that poopy experience with the world). Occasionally Benji does expand his repertoire to looking around dazedly with one or both eyes, waving arms and legs randomly, making a variety of noises with his mouth, and grabbing things within reach.
