    My 6 1/12 month old daughter has just started making monster noises, but not just that. When she tries reaching with her right hand sometimes not always but alot, her hand stiffens she leans forward a little and her mouth is open and she makes a rawing sound. It last for about 5 seconds. It doesn't look like she does it intentional but uncontrolably. Anyone seen this before and what it might be?

    I was convinced my #2 was a baby rhinoceros; I thought my #4 sounded more like an iguana. That's what they do because they're not able to quote Poe or Dickens yet. Your baby girl sounds fine to me.
