Liam, in my experience of newborn babies, is unusually (and precociously) engaged in looking around him. As in, he was doing this less than 10 minutes after exiting the womb. He does cry when he's cold or hungry or objecting to being poked at, but unlike other babies I've known, he spends a nontrivial amount of time simply checking things out. I've seen him do this for half an hour at a time.

This is particularly odd when you consider that newborn babies generally can't focus on anything more than about ~20 cm away. Regardless, I wish that I could understand what's going on in his head as he does this.

Side note: due in part to the folds of skin below his eyes, and in part to his eye color--typical newborn Caucasian dark blue--he looks strikingly like Ian McKellan in this mode. I find this hilarious.
