Celebrating a birthday!

Celebrating a birthday! - 11/13/09 05:53 PM

I can't believe it was one year ago today that I picked out my little Juji bear. She made eye contact and played peek-a-boo with me in the pet store.
Gosh, we were such nervous parronts (parrot parents). We hovered, we worried, we read anything and everything about Budgies.
Boy did time fly. Today we are celebrating Juji's birthday (not her actual hatch day, but the day that we brought her home) by giving her presents = a new boing, swing, happy perch, toys, and a coconut almond treat bar and sprigs of millet that are normally only used for training and special times. I'm also giving her special alone time with me, since the arrival of Bella she hasn't been able to sit on my shoulder for 3-5 hours everyday, but today I will make an effort to give her all the time with me she wants.
This morning when we woke up my husband and I talked about our favorite things she has done and how silly she is. How funny she is when she zooms by your head extremely fast and tries to slap you with her wing, how if I have her out and the phone rings and I answer it, she will fly to me and attack the phone and bite my fingers until I pay attention to her, how if she isn't covered by 7 at night, she will squawk until it hurts your ears, always letting us know we passed her proper bedtime, how she makes the most bizarre growling noises when playing with her favorite toy, how she makes raspberries at things she doesn't like and we never taught her that, the first time she talked or said I Love You, and how if she doesn't want to step up, she will bear down until I say step up 3 times. crazy
I can't believe how this tiny little bird stole my heart. Never knew I could love a bird so much. She brings such happiness and fun into our lives, and is such a good sister to Bella.
