Wow. Complete cutie pie. What books does he like?

Well, he's really liking the new Tom Rob Smith Secret Speech and the latest Sophie Kinsella . . . .oh the baby. We brought him a bunch of books, but the one that seems to work best for him at 3 months is Art for Baby, an oh-so-chic oversized board book from Candlewick of black-and-white images from contemporary art (Keith Haring, Bridget Reilly, etc.) He was magnetized by this one line drawing of an almost full-sized face of a dot-eyed woman with long hair. I'm sorry I don't remember the artist. The more abstract images in the book didn't do a whole lot for him, but I was amazed at the connection he clearly made to a stylized representation of a human face. Do we arrive with that built in?

I really thought no one could compete with my baby, but that little peanut comes close. Mazel tov!

Miles is adorable. What a cutie! Congratulations.

Yes-we're born with a fascination for faces. There's been some fantastic research on babies and faces. There was a study in which researches arranged three dots into the shape of a face, and babies liked looking at that arrangement over the other arrangements of the three dots.

There's a very cute series of board books called Busy Books...(Busy Pandas, Busy Kitties, Busy Chickens, etc). Color photographs of adorable animals and very simple text.

What a sweetie-baby! Those eyes -- babies' eyes get me every time. And he has such expressive-looking eyebrows. He must be an absolute delight to the whole family.

Thanks for sharing!
