Water Babies are terrifying creatures said to be living in Utah Lake and other parts of the United States, they somewhat resemble Gnomes only they're much scarier, they can break into your house while your sleeping and kill you and are very strong. Water Babies typically stalk and torment their victims and frequently destroy your belongings, they are evil creatures and they take delight in your suffering.



Here are some encounters: i just got home with my son and mother after shopping, i stepped out of the car and i noticed something, there was something in the Bush staring at my son, i immediately grabbed him and ran inside, looking the door behind me, i was absolutely petrified, those creatures were throwing things at the Window and laughing, they were destroying the garden, they eventually left and i was constantly looking out of the Window but didnt see them.



later that night, my son was sleeping with me because i didnt want those creatures to harm him obviously, i suddenly heard something downstairs, it sounded like the Window opening, i quickly locked the bedroom door, it was quiet the next few minutes until i heard footsteps, then i heard those creatures banging at the door, shortly afterwards they were gone, i moved out a week later to a house in Louisiana.



a couple of years later, i returned to the house, i knocked on the door and questioned the woman who was living there if there have been any strange occurences, she said "every day i hear laughter outside and sometimes and even see them looking at me, my garden was getting destroyed every week until i decided to give up on it, those creatures aint really that scary to me anymore, i learned to just live among them". when you ever find yourself in Utah, beware the Water Babies.

In my heritage, there's a creature called "duende" or dwarf in Spanish. My mom told me once that my grandma sent her (she was probably like 10 or 11) to fetch water from a nearby spring like a 4 minute walk. As she was walking (I forgot to say that it was night already), she was hearing whispering among the trees, in Spanish of course, and my mom didn't think much of it and fetched the water and returned home. Pretty much it but the lore behind these duendes is that they asked kids to follow them to never be seen again. My mom also said that if you catch one and put it into your pocket, you will receive good luck or money. I do think these are real. I have more stories from my parents growing up in Mexico in a state called Jalisco. I can tell you more if you want

The most recent story I have heard concerning the duendes was from my pastor's wife. She said that when they moved into the house they currently live in, her two daughters would see small creatures and she would hear laughter from the walls. She said that they prayed and they didn't have any incidents from then on.

I'm confused. Why is it called a 'Water Baby'? Nothing in the opening post sounded like it had anything to do with water. Why would a water spirit be in a bush at all or care about a house? This would make so much more sense if it happened on a house-boat than a state that's mostly barren desert sands.

From where I'm sitting, they just look like American Pixies, every bit as obnoxious as European Pixies, but without the oral traditions to banish or make peace with them. I mean other than being non-human and wrecking garden...they're not sounding very scary. Or related to water in anyway.  But I'm American so maybe we just don't know why this should be concerning.

The Spanish story makes more sense since it's just Spanish for 'dwarf'.
