Already it's apparent that some visual stimuli are more interesting than others. Even before eye tracking has really kicked in.

Kelton loves the 3 hanging lights over the kitchen sink. Maybe the six-foot hanging rods lend an exaggerated 3D effect that even his immature binocular vision can perceive. He seems to enjoy when I set one of the lights swinging but that's just icing on the cake, he's mesmerized even when they're still.

His other fixation is the venetian blinds at the doctor's office. This fascinated him on both his visits. They're closed but the sun streams in between them anyway -- a nice constrasty pattern. We would run our finger up and down the blinds and with the sound plus flashing light he was transfixed.
