One day not long after we moved into our house on Base, I decided to play with my one-year-old daughter in her room. She normally just babbles a little and if she is, it's handing me a toy or wanting something.
On that day I was in her room, she went on for 20 minutes babbling and using her hands to tell me a story. She held her hands up and growled at me, then pointed to a corner in her room and stared at all different spots in her room. I thought maybe she was just finally starting to babble more but she has never done that since.
A few days later we were in my room making a video to send back home, since we live on the other side of the U.S. Due to my husband being in the Army. We recorded it on my webcam and I watched it afterwards and saw a dark shadow move behind us. Right after I saw it, my daughter hit the mouse and made it disappear. This was 3 months ago. To this day I still cannot find the video anywhere on my computer and now sometimes I see the shadow in her video baby monitor. My husband says I'm crazy and make it up.
Since my son was born 2 months ago, he sometimes will look right through us and stare behind us or at the ceiling and he just laughs and coos. When he was only 20 days old, he kept turning his head to the corner and wouldn't look at my sister at all. Neither of them ever cry about it either. It just really makes me wonder what they see and hope that once my daughter talks she can tell me.
My husband lost his brother back in 2001 and lost 3 close friends in the war in 2010. And I don't have either grandmother alive so I hope that it's one of them playing and talking to them.
