I have a thing for babies. You probably do, too.
I’m drawn to them.
I guess it’s more of an obsession.
Lots of people have wondered about why this is…Darwin said we’re drawn to them because our attraction to infants helps the species survive. Others have suggested that we respond instinctively to a baby’s unique features: their relatively large head and eyes, for instance. Lately science has identified a specific area of the brain that fires up around infants, and helps to form the parent/child bond. All this might be, but it certainly doesn’t explain why I’m gaga over babies of other sorts…
Just look at these baby turnips,
How adorable are these little pumpkins—
And what about these little guys, they’re my latest baby obsession. They’ll come in so handy when I need that extra kick in my fall baking, or in an after dinner coffee. But to be honest I’m collecting them just because they’re so irresistible.
They look exactly like their parents…how cute.
Do you have an obsession with miniatures? Do tell!
