Baby

“When the young baby begins to use his eyes in an inquisitive manner to inspect his surroundings, he shows that his mind is at work. He hungers for visual experience and in the process of growth makes new demands upon his capacities to see. He must perceptually differentiate his own hands from the hands of his caretaker. If his inheritance is normal, he exercises his capacities at the appropriate level of maturity. If poorly endowed or his neuro-motor equipment has been damaged , he may not display adequate adaptive behavior, even in the most elementary use of his eyes and hands. ” 

 

Oh, Baby, please open your eyes              

discover the wide world

playground of mind and motion

let your mind think

lead your vision and grow your mentality

let your eyes get hold of the physical world

 hold anything with your hands

bring eyes and hands in coordination

reach anything in sight, seize and exploit it

mouth it, bang it, rub it, whatever is your maneuver

assist each other in visual cues and touch

intricate process of reciprocal interweaving

build up the patterns and propensities

of adaptive behavior…
