6 Weeks and Eyes Wide Open

So the “book people” say that at six weeks many babies become fussy, irrascibly fussy. Why? Becuase all of a sudden, she’s looking around and taking it all in. She’s never seen a flower or a tree or blinking lights on the stereo or (well, look at that!) it’s a blank white wall. I think I’ll lie here and stare at that for a bit and then cry.
It’s very complicated . . . breathing, seeing, holding up your head. It takes practice and lots and lots of crying.
