If Only You Could Dye Yarn Like That

Lucy looking very proper.

She has been talking more lately. Her voice is nowhere near as clear as an African Grey's but you can figure out what she is trying to say. It's sort of like being a parent whose kid is just starting to learn to talk - you can understand them but maybe other people wouldn't. Lucy says: Hi, Hello and is working on Thank You. She also makes "love love" sounds when she is happy. She imitates the tone and cadence of many, many more phrases than she can actually say. And she is very good at clicking and whistles and beeps. Thankfully she does not imitate the phone or microwave or anything. But she has learned the little kissy, clicking sound I always make to her. She shows me that she associates that sound with me and makes the sound when she is happy or trying to show she loves me. All in all a very smart little lady. :)

She is so gorgeous, and from what I've seen, pionus only get more bautiful with age, if that's even possible!

I'll be looking forward to seeing your Lucy-inspired scarf soon :)
