According to the experts it's part of a sleep disorder which has something to do with the electrics in the brain during REM sleep. Apparently it's genetic most of the time. Is there anyone in your family that sleepwalks or talks? I have twin boys and one is a sleepwalker and the other a sleeptalker. Both my sister and I were sleepwalkers and talkers. As long as you don't wake him when he's on a mission and gently guide him back to bed all should be fine and nothing to worry about. I stopped walking around when I was in my teens but I do still talk in my sleep on occasion.
