Is it normal?

Is it normal for an eleven month old baby to have dreams where he either laughs or cries or baby babbles? My baby sometimes sobs in his sleep and moans. Other times he will giggle, a real big hearty giggle and then I have also heard him babbling in his sleep. He is a very good sleeper but very wrestless. Tosses and turns all night. Is this just the way my baby is or could something be worrying him? He is a stay at home with mom baby so I know nothing upsets him during the day. I have just never heard of this?
Thank you for opinion.

This is very common behaviour in babies of this age and is quite normal. As you say your baby is quite happy.

Grandchild is 5 months, while still asleep sobbing and very upset after a good period of peaceful sleep, then suddenly cries but go back to sleep if you keep comforting him why is that he is so upset,
