Baby Hands are Fascinating

In the last couple days, I have noticed that Baby D stares with great fascination at his outstretched hands as he flexes and relaxes them at the wrist. Twirling each dimple-knuckled hand around and around with calculated timing as I imagine a Geisha doing a fan dance would. He studies the back (just a tad browner than its counterpart) and the front as if he were seeing the plump little tentacles for the first time. It amazing how his hands (at least these days) can keep him more preoccupied than any toy we could put in them. What a magical time to be a new little human. It warms me to think that I too was just as in awe of such simple things. Wait, apparently I still am.
