funny faces

My DS (8 months) started making funny faces. His face is totally serious and concentrated, his mouth moves as if he was talking, yet there is no sound coming out. I've never seen a baby do this It's funny yet creepy. Could he be imitating us talking? Do your kids do that too?

  • My daughter does and has done this, it isn't creepy, they are trying to talk, and make out sounds and words. This world, their body and everything is new to them, they are learning how to work their mouths and voice boxes. Plus he sees you move your mouth when you talk and eat and he's mimiking your movement.
