By Rachel Castro /

Babies and toddlers love to look at faces, and research has demonstrated that the brains of infants who are just four months old can process faces almost as well as adults’ brains do. Faces captivate your child’s attention, and expressions with open eyes and smiles rank as preferred choices.
