I think my house is haunted, Alex now sleeps in the room Daria used to, I moved the two girls into the bigger bedroom and him into the smaller one. Anyway he never sleeps good anymore in there, and Daria never did either but since she was a baby I never thought much about her not sleeping well. She always slept better on the couch with me or in our bedroom. Alex often is scared or wakes up upset or talking in his sleep and he has started wanting to sleep with a toy everynight so he "doesn't have bad dreams" he says. Now before this kid never was attached to anything,no lovey and he also thought sleeping with toys was quote "stupid" his words!
As for Daria I really think she might be a crystal child I will need to get that book. Every single person that has ever seen her or looked at her tells me she is beautiful and special. I have had so many strangers just stop me dead in a store to tell me that, this kid must have one heck of an aura! I mean people comment my other kids are cute but never all the time like that. Actually one person almost didn't even notice my other kids, just Daria! And then looked right at me and told me she was special and I was very blessed. I feel that way but it sorta made me feel funky or something :LOL
I believe she has an angel watching over her or spiritual connections. The night Daria was born (no one but my mom knew I was in labor and she didn't know the time of birth until 8am that morning) my aunt Karen had a dream that her mom (my grandma who is dead) was talking to her at a party then suddenly told her to rush in the other room and take the blanket off the baby girl's face she can't breath!! My aunt awoke with a jump and the clock said 1:43 am, the time Daria was born, she had the cord around her neck (the only one of my kids that did) and the doc barely made it into the room, she was half out before he got there.
My mom called my aunt to tell her I had the baby but no time etc, my aunt said I figured and then told my mom the dream.
Here's where the angel thing comes in, ever since I can remember Daria has "talked" either cooing as an infant, toddler gibberish etc to the ceiling or wall, sometimes dead air. She would smile and often reach her hand out like someone was there. A few times last week she tried "feeding" no one.
She was sitting on the floor with some froot loops,(I'm ducking from organic oaties :LOL) the other kids were in bed and dh and I were sitting behind her where she couldn't really see us. She suddenly looked up facing the wall away from us and said "hi" and waved then held out a few froot loops to thin air
, she then said "hi" again and waved (she says hi for both hi and bye sometimes) then went back to eating as if nothing happened. I just looked at dh like whoa:LOL.
And there have been times where someone just "protected"her kwim? She had a pretty bad vax reaction and thankfully recovered without any serious problems although there are a few effects. But I mean she can still walk, talk eat etc. There is so much love just pouring from her, something really special that I just can't put my finger on. Not just because she is my kid either.
ETA I read through that whole excerpt that trabot posted on that book and DAria is very fond of nature! She doesn't care what season it is, how cold or wet or whatever it is outside she want's to play outside! She is really into the dirt and everything.And she rolls in the grass and points to the flowers and just loves it. Alex will play out but he could care less about nature, just wants to toss a ball around :LOL.
