Re: Red Belly vocabulary

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 her...lol
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
