“She is really special,” Deschanel said of Elsie. “She’s saying some words. She says a lot of words but she’s really obsessed with hats right now. My mom wears hats a lot and we had dinner with her and as soon as my mom came out, my daughter said, ‘hat! hat!… I think she’s really proud that she recognizes that and if she walks in my closet, the hats are on the top shelf and she’ll point to them.”
