From June 2011:

After Malia entered the orphanage, she received the best care. At 5 months, her eyes could communicate with others. Her eyes could move to following moving objects. Normally, she lies in her crib. She is always curiously gazing at the world around her. As long as someone is playing with her, she will look at them. She likes for the nanny to hold her. When the nanny picks her up, she happily smiles. When she puts her down, she cries. During the day, she sleeps two to three times, each time for about an hour.
