Penelope likes to stare at the ceiling and smile. I'd say this happens about once a day for about 3 minutes. We have a pretty boring ceiling so I don't know what she could find so interesting up there. I will reposition her and she will still be fixed on the same spot.
I googled "can babies see angels" and there are a lot of discussion boards about it. Many moms give the same description as I do. Of course there are many who do not believe this.
I think she can see passed family members spirits. It doesn't scare me or anything. Sometimes I think they are trying to help me out. In the morning she will be crying because she is hungry and I will lay her in the middle of the living room floor to fix her bottle. I'll come back and she will just be looking at the ceiling and smiling. I feel like our relatives are checking up on her or making faces at her so she stops crying and smiles.
I always wonder who is coming to visit her. Is it the same person each time? Is it someone on my side of the family or Josh's? Is it a relative that we have even met or someone from long ago?
Some people may think it's silly, but I like to think she can see angels and that makes me feel pretty good.
