7 WAYS BABIES SHOW THEIR LOVE
#1 MAKES EYE CONTACT
Newborns love to look at faces, and yours is her favorite.
#2 RECOGNIZES YOUR SMELL
Nothing smells better than you, no matter how long since your last shower.
#3 SMILES AT YOU
The first true smile is a magical moment.
Look for it at around 6 weeks.
#4 TALKS TO YOU
Your baby will babble to engage with you, so answer back!
#5 HAS SEPARATION ANXIETY
At about 6 months, your baby will notice your absence.
She may cry when you leave and smile when you return.
#6 SHARES YOUR INTERESTS
Whatever you pay attention to, your baby will too.
This is most obvious at 9 to 12 months.
#7 HAS STRANGER ANXIETY
Your baby might bury her head in your chest when someone new appears.
