My Daughter's Crib


I was getting ready to settle down in my bed after putting my first born daughter in her crib in the next room... A few moments later I heard "Oh look, a baby" in a male's voice, coming from my infant's room over the baby monitor. But my husband was laying next to me, my father and mother were already asleep in their own bed, 2 rooms down, my grandparents (mother's side) were in the mother-in-law quarters (which were down the hill driveway) and were already asleep. I think it was my late grandparents, or grandpa (father's side) who had passed away a year ago, coming to wish the baby a welcome. Either way, I sprung out of bed and grabbed my baby. She slept in her bassinet next to my bed or in my bed for quite a while after that!

Now, I had in the past seen my father's mother before, watching me sleep or play piano, but for them to come to my child kind of freaked me out. I know they would never hurt her, but the thought that it could've been something else with a vulnerable infant is what kept me from putting her back in her crib. Freaky.

Even as I write this someone/thing is playing with my hair, like running a single finger through my hair or just stroking it lightly... It's rather annoying.

That spirit is there for a reason. He is there to protect this child. I feel he will make his presence even more known in time. Don't fear it. This is a very protecting ghost. A guardian angel.

Your mothers father was probably looking over the baby. You know how prtective grandparents are. I think that your grandfather is definantly watching over you.

It's always good to learn about the spirituals guides surrounding you. But once you lern about it and your trust grows or decreases then you maymake a descion. But no matter what your child comes before anything else...

Some spirits can be pleasant, it is known they do confort, feel our emotions, even give us advice. Either way be cautious. As you say, you don't know who they are. Remember they are spirits, they roam and they do feel. All depends what kind they are and who they are. But one know, because you will feel it. This is new to you, but you will know in time. Don't be afraid.
