My nearly 6 month old used to sleep great, but the last month or so he wakes up around 2 am and sits in his crib and talks to his hands. He'll do it for 2 hours before he goes back to sleep. he doesn't cry or fuss, just talks, but his bedroom is right next to mine and I keep the door open, so I end up sitting up 2 hours reading a book until he goes back to sleep. It wouldn't be a problem but I have to get up two hours after that to go to work and I feel like a zombie. There are no nightlights in his room or anything that would keep him awake, so I don't understand this behavior. Any ideas?Answer Question

I read this to my husband...He laughed and said, "What is the problem? He's just crazy like the rest of us." ... Seriously though, I think it is just a sign that he is very smart and creative. My twins used to talk to their fingers...and their food...and any other object - anything and everything became a doll or imaginary friend. They are both avid readers and by the time they were 8 would read 100 pages of a book before breakfast. They each have an IQ of about 145. They have gotten all A's in school since kindergarten. Now they are seniors in high school and they are 2nd and 3rd in their graduating class and they can both draw and paint and have won art contests, spelling Bees, etc. and they are going to college on academic scholarships. When they were babies, I thought they were strange...Now I call it "creative."
