Yes, she has a vocabulary of about 150 words and phrases; things like, "go for a walk?", "bye bye now", "see you later", "good morning", "good night" (both at always the appropriate time of day), "take a bath". One of her cutest is when she calls the dog: she whistles, then calls "Mollie" a couple of times, then makes a noise like hands clapping--just like we do when calling the dog. And her best is when she makes a sound like our phone ringing, which is so accurate it fools us sometimes; then she'll answer, "hello, how are you"; then she'll jabber a while, and finish up with "okay, bye bye now, see you later". And she asks for specific things to eat; "Can I have a grape/cracker/apple/cheese."
