Newborn babies have a limited understanding of the world around them. For their first few months, they are experimenting and learning through experience of their environment. Up until 6 - 9 months, babies have no concept that an object exists outside its immediate sight. That is, that if a baby can see a building block then it is there, but if it isn't in sight, then it may as well not exist. Only at around 6 - 9 months does a baby realise that if it drops a block, that the block is still there nearby. At around this time, you may catch your baby purposefully dropping things to see where they go - this is all a part of that early experimenting with their surroundings, trying to make sense of the strange world that they have found themselves in!
