  • They might be sprits the baby is seeing... kids at their age can see stuff like that... If their imaginary friend is shaggy thats one thing. but if they have real names is another. have the baby explain what they look like. ask her about them. how old r they. There might be more to it!!! u can find out who has died near where u live or in ur home etc

  • Yes, there is John-John & 1 other person I cant remember right now.. She also enjoys lady bugs occasionally & some other animals, but i dont think "we own them" & are not the same time & time again...

    Personally. I had an imaginary friend as a kid who happen to have the same name & basic life story as my grandfather that passed away when my dad was 12 .... I never seen a picture of him until i was around age 9 ( long after growing out of seeing him) and knew automatically who he was & felt an odd comfort in seeing the picture. :-)

  • wow thats trippy! my son doesnt do any of that. he does however like to tell your everything that happened in the cartoons he watched that morning and can give you almost exact details. sometimes he resits the t.v. show's as they are happening. he also resits books i am starting to teach him to read cause he understands the spelling of words and such sometimes.

  • my yr old had "buddy" buddy was not a good friend I had to ask buddt to leave because JJ would say all these bad things that buddy did. My kids dont watch tv so I dont know where he got it from.

    Things "Buddy" has done
    ran from cops
    stole a car
    killed a snake
    killed a cop
    started a fire

    stayed at the hotel
    And the best was got drunk off of Root beer and drove to Mc Donalds and had french fries

    Like I said my kids didnt watch alot of tv we dont talk about things like that so I dont know where he got it from
