we were once... infants, helpless, dependent on love.. on safety...at times too much or may be too little.. too close or too far..survival set in, stay.. run..fight, flight or freeze... found our ways... the end is predictable...the in between matters

Babies lip-read before talking?!
A new study finds that babies read the lips of talking adults starting at around age 6 months and then switch to focusing on adults' eyes at age 1, when tots begin to talk. Here, an 8-month-old infant predominantly focuses on the mouth of a talking woman shown on a computer screen. Credit: Florida Atlantic Univ.
