Thanks for taking time to read and answer my post.
To answer your questions: he does not get scared when we go shopping to malls, supermarkets, etc. Also when we take the elevator he smiles at people and if they smile back he seems to be happy.
Sometimes yes he avoids my eyes it is like he does not want to look me in the eye....Like this morning I took him in my bed, he sleeps separately in his crib but the same room as me, he would not look me in the eyes, he was watching the pillows, blanket...and finally when I started to make noises and to redirect his eyes, he would look me in the eyes but not for long....It makes me so sad because I so much want to cuddle with him, but he seems not to like cuddling......
As about babbling...he does babble, he makes funny noises with his tongue or from his throat....not very "talkative" though...some days are better than others.
Other things...he eats well, he weighs 24 pounds, he sleeps the whole night, some nights he might be quite restless but does not wake up until the morning...he seems to enjoy the company of other babies/children, when we go out he looks around at cars, people, dogs, etc.
I hope this gives you a better image.
