Lafayette, Louisiana Ghost Sightings - PAGE 14

This was less than 9 years ago and absolutely true: my wife Amy and I were living in a very old country house in Duson Louisiana with our Newborn daughter lauren. The owner told us that his elderly mother had lived there until her death.
Amy was working days and I evenings and we'd take turns babysitting which is what I was doing when I heard ghostly footsteps walking through the house! One very quiet afternoon I was alone in the house with the baby typing a book report on my computer for a ull class while the baby slept soundly in her little carry-all a few feet away in the living room.
The heavy afternoon silence was suddenly broken by very loud footsteps coming from the front hall area and continuing into the living room the floor even creaked and crackled as though it were supporting some weight.|
The sound was so real and so clear that my mind instantly explained ''amy must be going check on the baby'' but in a split-second I looked up from the computer screen remembering that my wife was not even in the house she was at work and I was alone out here with the baby! I felt my blood go cold and my heart was trip-hammering in my chest as I leaned over in my desk chair and looked into the living room and saw my daughter stirring in her carrier as though she was being disturbed by something...
Or someone. Nothing else happened that day but it wasn't the only incident to occur in that house before we moved away. The instant I stepped into that place I knew it just wasn't right anyone could feel the palpable dread in the air...
I didn't like it from the beginning but my wife wanted it so we moved in. In the time we lived out there we heard more phantom footsteps music playing in the night and on many occasions our baby would stop while playing and stare into the next room and then smile wave clap and gurgle as though someone only she could see was making monkey-shine for her...
