9/20 Yay!!!!!!!!! Today not only did Magnus step-up, but he stayed on my hand. Of course, I did give him millet as a reward, but once I took it away he stayed on my hand. I brought him up close to my face and talked to him really excitedly, making different noises. He sat really intently until I whistled, and he apparently didn't like that so he left. But he stepped right back up with some coaxing and stayed on my hand for another three minutes or so. Altogether he stayed for like six minutes, and he seemed really interested in my face and the noises I was making. Doesn't sound like a big accomplishment, but the only other time he'd stayed was for about a minute while I was playing an app on my phone and he liked the colors. This is the first time he'd been genuinely interested in ME and not the millet or toy I was holding. This gives me hope that we'll move from hand-tame to us having an actual bond. <3
