  • probably just checking out his surroundings. babies are learning every day and they are curious about EVERYTHING. dont worry, it sounds pretty normal.

  • it seems very normal to me.... hes just curious as to what hes looking at. if you want to help him out a little, figure out, or try to figure out, what hes looking at and tell him what it is. if its reachable, bring it down to his level and tell him what it is, let him touch it and feel it and notice what it is, what it does, and things like that. it will help out his motor skills too!! =]

  • It's just something that catches his attention. My son is attracted to ANYTHING with a pattern. Color or not. My ceiling is white but has like this swirly texture into it, and he stares at it and gets so excited and will stay staring for like 10-20 minutes.

  • Very normal. It is great that he is showing curiosity about his surrounding. Make sure that you spend a lot of time talking to time and explaining what he is looking at.

  • my daughter does the same thing. also she love smiling at the corners of rooms. i just let her and she always looks back at my face. she is always turning her head really fast just to see whats going on all over the place. it is just curiosity. nothing to worry about. you may also have a very patriotic son ^.^ Have fun and enjoy!
