In brief: Eye contact.

Gives more precise meaning to crying (hunger, discomfort, excitement).
Cries when left alone; usually stops when picked up. Makes variety of gurgling and cooing sounds when happy and content. Makes eye contact. May quiet down in response to human face. Responds positively to being held and comforted. May smile socially at familiar faces and voices, especially mother's voice.
