    Thanks Cheryl, for the response, Sounds like we have a lot in
    common, Carrie is also a mamaís girl (and I mean that) No one
    else can touch
    When I first got her all she said was "Carrie" And sometimes she
    would repeat it several times. I have taught her (well let me
    rephrase that, She has learned to say, "I love you", "Come
    Here" "Give me a kiss" "What cha doing" "I'm a pretty girl" and
    she mumbles all the time. And she is learning quiet nicely how
    to whistle. (Copying Tiels) I can't tell who's who whistle any
    more. She has him down really good. lol
    But I was curious how many words they could learn. But I love
    her no matter how many words she says, she's a sweetie, (to me)
    my husband would say she's a biting machine. I told him we could
    find a male for him, and he would be all his...literally. Iím
    hoping he falls for it. LOL
