The Human Baby Face (ee five months)

Later scientists followed Darwin’s train of thought and discovered that the expression of emotions is strikingly similar across cultures—horror and disgust look pretty much the same on the face of a New Yorker as they do on a Nigerian, and people from different cultures can recognize emotions such as happiness, anger and surprise on others’ faces, even if they don’t share a language.-discovery

Can you please put her in a package and send her to me so I can smooch her?

Brigindo said...

Love this. What an expressive baby.

Oh these are great. What a darling. Speaking of your quote: have you seen the documentary "Babies"? It's out on DVD (& if anyone has Netflix, it's available instantly).

Cheers & happy mother's day, Maggie.

Her eyes are so intelligent and sparkly and playful.

The light just pours out of them. If you ever had any doubts about what you are doing as a mother, there's your proof you are kickin it!

She happy girl.

She looks so much like her beautiful daddy. Isn't this a study in how we are all of the same tribe?
Love you, dear. Happy Mother's Day! Please kiss all you babies for me. ALL of them. I mean it. Tell them you are kissing them for an old lady in Florida. Let your lips linger for just an extra second.

Annie said...
