My friend's son used to roll his eyes like that when he was very young...now he has glasses.

To me it looks like he's saying, "Dude? Seriously?" with his eyes
He does often roll his eyes at us to say something like that. But other times it's completely uncalled for. He does it more to his momma than me. Like if we both go to pick him up from daycare, and she is the first to greet him.. she can say something as normal as "hi baby, I missed you!". ..... and he will roll his eyes. For a while it was really hurting her feelings.
We asked our pediatrician who had no idea, though I might attribute that to lack of experience bc he was a young Dr.

He is too young ito be doing that as a reaction to you. It is either something like dry eyes, sleepiness, possibly something medical or it could be sensory. Some kids have a hard time taking in sensory input. So they will look away because seeing, hearing & touching all at the same time is too much for them.
I would get it checked out & I would ask daycare to watch for it. the drs will want to know how much & when it is happening, so try to chart it - this will help you to figure out if it's happening a lot at certain times of the day too (naptime, end of the day, bedtime etc)
