As of Eva’s feeding that began 45 minutes ago, her eyes are definitely beginning to open! From the inner corner, of course. There is a very small, but clearly visible, darker area right in the corner, which is larger and clearer than it was at her previous feeding. It can’t be anywhere near her pupils yet, but she is showing increased awareness of light — largely by turning away from it! Poor baby needs to get used to this new sense.
Over the next few days, we all get to watch Eva discover a brand new awareness of the world, something beyond the scent, touch, and heat that have made up her universe so far!
