So how do you encourage cognitive development in newborn babies when all they do is eat and sleep?

I have two 12-day-old babies and I'm wondering if there's any way I can stimulate them when all they really do is eat and sleep. I talk to them a lot when I'm feeding and changing them, I try to touch them a lot and massage them when they're awake and walk them around the apartment a little and I've been showing them some black and white stuffed animals, but is there anything else I can do? Or if I'm getting way ahead of myself here, then what is the appropriate age to start stimulating them?
