Interesting experience. Has your daughter seen photo albums or pics of him before?
It brings to memory something I thought amusing at the time but did not question, namely that the first sounds coming from my son's mouth at the age of three months and ones he kept repeating were both syllables of my grandmother's first name. He was acting quite pleased with himself and his little arms and legs would flail in excitement as he said them.

She sounds adorable.
That is an interesting experience, thanks for sharing it here. It's hard to know what was really going through her mind since she is so young. It might be interesting to play a little game of "who is that?" with her while looking at family pictures. See if she labels pictures of your grandfather as "papa".

My daughter ( when she was three or four ) had a conversation with my deceased mother for over fifteen minutes as my wife and I lay in bed pretending to be asleep.
One morning she wandered into our bedroom chatting to herself, or so we thought.
I lightly kicked my wife's leg under the cover and whispered that it sounded like our little girl was talking to someone.
We listened as she asked AND answered questions.
She'd speak and then sit quiet as if listening, then she'd give an answer.
Thing was, judging by the conversation, the only person she could have been speaking to was my mum, who she'd never met !
My mum passed away three months before our little girl was born.
When my wife later asked her who she had been talking to. She pointed up to the photo of my mum which was hanging on the living room wall and said " that lady "..........
That sealed it for both of us !
