THROUGH THE EYES of our week-old infant, I am beginning to map the worls we share as I record the sounds that pique his attention. Before his birth, Dylan heard these sounds. Now that he is out and breathing the air with these noises in the same space, he turns his head and fixes his gaze at their source. While I doubt that he can actually focus his gaze on the thing that he hears, he is alert enough to look in the direction of noises he knows from months inutero. And by seeing where he enjoys his deepest sleeps, we're learning where the truly quietest parts of the house are. Surprisingly, he sleeps soundly when his Moses Basket is placed within three feet of an operating dishwasher. I'm going to embed that sample to this blog post later.
