is special because he can have conversations with people, give
kisses when you ask for it, say night night when he's ready to go to
bed, and good morning when I take his cage covers off every morning.
He's lovebug! Zach is a year and a month old. He's about fifteen
inches from head to tail. Over time the yellow on his head will
intensify down to his neck.
He loves to play with all kinds of toys, whether it's his own,
human's, dog's and has a way of making non-toys a toy! He hasn't
learnt any fancy tricks yet except to give me a kiss when I ask him
to and will lay on his back as I tickle his stomach! He sings and
talks and seems to learn new words each day. I do teach him songs and
phrases by singing the same songs to him until he gets sings along
and using words to associate with actions and keeping them
consistent. When I am busy doing things around this house, he watches
videos of Sesame Street "children's favorite songs" and
other ones, as well as Disney movies. He loves the voices and songs
in those tapes and that's also where he picks up his words, phrases
and song lyrics. He's special in all those ways but most of all it's
because of how much I feel that he loves me and vice versa. I look
forward to seeing him every morning and it's nothing like uncovering
his cage and receiving a loud and cheery "good morning!"
from him, asking for a kiss and he bends forward and give me one with
a loud kissy noise, lifts up his foot and says "wanna come? step
up!" when he sees me walking towards him, and the joy I get in
massaging his head and neck and hear him purr like a cat! He also
takes showers with me on a shower perch and will happily say
"wheeeee" and "Goooood" until the shower is done!
He's my little baby and a very special one in my life!
