Hi clee105,

I found an article that might hold the answer to your question. Here's a quote from the article:

Quote
Babies' brains are growing and developing at an extraordinary pace, which makes comparisons between different ages difficult: a newborn's gaze might reflect innate abilities, but a seven-month-old's will also be influenced by what he or she is starting to learn and remember about the world. “An infant may look longer in order to relate the event to what it already knows,” says Kagan. “The main point is that no single measure is able to supply all the evidence required for conclusions about what infants know.”

While I don't know the psychology behind it, you might be able to understand it better than I do
