Violet rarely looks directly at us. The books say that, as their sight develops, infants more often look at the edges of the objects in front of them. I think it’s nature way of making them all the more fascinating. Aren’t we all drawn to people that don’t seem interested in us? I make goofy faces, talk in a high baby voice, speak in overly excited tones – I do everything this side of standing on my head – and Violet looks juuuust off to the left of me. And I keep coming back for more.
