Oh. ... Hello World. ... I Didn't See You There

You forget how quickly the transition happens.  It's like a dry field suddenly sparking into a giant fire.  One day she's just sitting there; blobby.  Only goal in life is to drink, sleep and release fluids.  Then, like a bolt of thunder, she suddenly aware of this great big world around her.  She laughs at silly faces. ... she stares, unsure of the really funny ones.  She gets excited when her sisters lean in toward her.  She loves to look at colors on the wall.  It's as though for the past 8 week (my god. ... 8 weeks already) she's been in a waking sleep.  Eyes open but not really looking.  Now, the blinders have fallen away.  The world is all around her, and she can't get enough of it.  Just like that, the wonder has begun.
