He, May have been standing there as your talked about him and whispered it to her in Spirit. Our passed on loved ones are around us more then we realise, or the angels or guides could have told her, spirit animals, or even she just sensed it telepathically faster then you did in your own mind. :) ... Pretty neat when they do that huh :) .

Yes, you have answered your own question. You and your mom both have a gift but you are questioning hers? Hers will be even stronger as she will not be raised by the constraints society puts on you to not believe. I agree with an earlier answer that she knew his middle name before she was born. I have pre-birth memories. I also agree he could've told her to prove to you he is there. There is another school of thought I am as of yet undecided on, some believe Satan knows all and his demons pose as our loved ones to convince us the bible is a lie. I guess it all depends on if one can find a way to jive the obvious evidence of spirits and reincarnation against what the bible says, and if not, the bible would have to win as the Devil is a deceptive evil being. I am still undecided as of yet, but only today read a post about ghosts in the bible I can't wait to learn more!

They have met in spirit. Little children are very sensitive to the unseen world. If you believe your uncle is still alive in spirit & watching over your little girl it´s a nice comforting feeling. Sometimes there isn´t another explanation. Children accept ghosts, spirits etc as normal.

Yes I agree with the above comments. Children are more susceptable to seeing and hearing ghosts. I think that your uncle was talking to her in spirit and looking out for her.

There are some unexplainable thing that is happening around. But it usually happened with a purpose.

she is still close to the beginning of someones end. I truly believe small children know a lot of things about the other world, whether its heaven or in between, or some other place.

It could be that she is your uncle. She could be reincarnation of him. Or that he appeared to her. Who knows?

This is a gift and they can sometimes carry it with them when they get older it just depends if the parents help them expand this gift. some people are afraid to speak of it because some consider them freaks

Children and animals are innocent in this world and often have heighten senses. They ususally lose those senses because they are taught that it is wrong. Often imaginary friends are spirit guides

its a strange one, my daughter did very similar things until she was 4 then it seems to stop. I dont know where it comes from but i know it happens. She once asked me why the fire had been moved from the house that we lived in before. i asked what she meant and she said when I lived with you before when you was old and didnt want me

Their senses haven't been dulled yet so the can pick up and retain things we cannot. Someone could have mention his name just once and she retained it. My mother use to always say "little pictures have big ears"..children hear things even when we think they don't...and usually repeat them at the worst possible times..lol
