Very cute baby! His left eye is blurry because the focal plane is behind that eye (farther from the the camera). Always focus on the eye which is closer to you, and if the back eye is blurry, you need a higher f-number.

Any time. It's a great image despite the slightly out of focus eye. One of the many nice things about babies is that they give us lots of chances to try similar photos :smile:.

Cute kid! You shot wide open. The larger the aperture (smaller F stop number, this is F/ 1.7 according to your EXIF data) the less depth of field you get. But you also don't want to shoot at much lower than the 1/80th shutter speed you shot with. Your option is to use higher ISO or shoot in a place with more light.
