Baby Potential

I held a new baby this evening. She's just over a week old and still can't focus on details. Her eyes drift around and catch the edges of objects and she looks surprised when she makes eye contact with someone. Having three children of my own and watching them grow through babyhood, I was struck with the amount of potential that's in this baby girl. She's quite somber, according to her mom, and I wonder if she'll remain that way, or if she has mischief inside waiting to make its debut. How will life affect her? How will she affect life? The seeds are there, waiting to grow.
