  • completely normal. Then just wait for them to get older and realize they can do it on purpose...my son discovered that at about 3 or 4 and we would be 'talking' and he would just do it and then laugh because he knew it freaked me out!!! He still does it now (7)....we will be in the middle of dinner and if it's really quiet he will go "hey Mom" and I look and he's making some kind of crazy face with his eyes crossed :) I fall for it everytime
