CJ (4 mo) did something I thought was very strange today. I was putting him down for a nap, so I nursed him a little and he drifted off to sleep. I got up when he let go, and he startled a bit from the movement. He looked at me, looking fully awake, and I was thinking I guess I had to try again. His face lit up, he began kicking his legs and waving his arms and he was laughing for about 15 seconds. I just stared because I was in shock. He then turned his head to the other side, closed his eyes, and went to sleep. I watched him for about another 5 minutes, I just didn't know what to make of it. He's been laughing/grinning/sighing himself to sleep for a while, but he's never done that before. Anyone else's baby do anything similar or anything strange at all while trying to fall asleep?

oh, yes, dd would laugh in her sleep all the time. the best was when she was learning to pull up and crawl, she would do so in her sleep and then fall still again wherever she landed, on my hip, on my leg, half in her crib half on our bed, wherever. we would be dying laughing.

Okay, so babies just do these things, I was worried my LO might be possessed, the whole thing left me wierded out. Now I know, I can enjoy it when it happens again.

that sounds so funny.

While DS hasn't laughed, he does babble often in his sleep. I'm wondering if he's going to be a sleep walker/talker now.

DS2 laughs in his sleep all the time. Once he even laughed so hard that he laughed himself awake and then looked at me all surprised like "What just happened?"

My ds does that too. What's funny is his laugh in his sleep is totally different then when he's awake. That kind of freaked me out at first.

DS started giggling himself to sleep at a very young age. At first it freaked me out but now its funny.

Ds used to do that! One time he woke me up in the middle of the night laughing and rolling around holding his favorite ducky and he was totally asleep! I was so sure he had woken up and ran in to get him but his eyes were glued shut and he went still again after a minute.

Yes! They practice in their sleep. It totally freaked me out and dd used to talk in her sleep....saying things she hadn't said before. She said her first sentence in the middle of the night! The laughing is fun though.

Happy Mommy to one amazing girl (6y) and one sweet boy (2y), and wife to DH since 7/03 : :
