When I picked up 1 year old Molly at her past home (they relinquished her due to a divorce and the grandmother had temporary custody) she was out on the deck just looking around. The grandmother said, "It's funny, she'll lay out there for hours just looking around. She doesn't sleep, she just watches". There's more napping these days (she'll be 9 tommorrow), but she still loves to "watch". Has anyone ever seen the movie Being There with Peter Sellers and Shirley Maclaine? I often call her "Chauncy" ("Yes, I like to watch"). If you haven't seen it, do. Take care, Belinda.
