He was the illegitimate son of 15-year-old Leola Brooks, a field hand. His father was probably Joe Willie "Frost" James, who moved in with Leola, and so Elmore took this as his name.

About Baby

Born with blue eye colour

Most of the new born have blue eyes right after their birth. This is because of the absence of the melanin tissue during birth. After the age of six months or one year in some cases, the melanin tissue starts getting activated, changing their eye colour.

Taste buds everywhere

New born babies are known to have taste buds at many places apart from the tongue i.e. the back, roof as well as the sides of the mouth. As they grow up, the sense of taste everywhere apart from tongue loses away!

No tears for the little ones

If babies don’t like anything, they will start making a shreaking voice and or crunch their face in a weird manner, but they actually can’t cry. Babies until few months old are not able to cry or take out tears.

No salt tasting power

New born babies don’t feel food is very salty or without salt. Kidneys of a new born baby start developing properly at the age of 4 months. Since the kidneys are able to process sodium, hence you know!

Nearsighted

Now if you are confused as to what this means, is simply stating that new born babies are able to clearly see things that are close to them. Hence they can only see close things properly. Maximum clear vision is up to 12 inches.
