Okay, I just have to share- it's just too adorable. When we first got Bubbles and he was so frightened, I would go sit by his cage and sing to him. We kind of got in the habit of sitting with him right before bedtime and singing "Goodnight Sweetheart (well, it's time to go...)". He LOVES it. Now, when we turn off the lights and go to his cage, he waddles quickly up to his sleeping spot near where we sit. When we start singing, he slowly poofs his feathers, sleepily blinks his eyes, yawns, and starts to nod off. It's gotten hard to sing because we are trying not to giggle.
Last night, Alex and I started our little ritual as Bubbles fell asleep. Then Alex asked a question, and I answered it- we had a nice little mom- son moment in those quiet moments. That is, until we heard this sharp "Tff, Tff!" We looked up, and Bubbles is GLARING at us through the bars, and scolding us! He was SO mad that we were interrupting his lullaby! Lesson learned Bubbles- we can talk on our own time. Luckily, a few more verses and he was fast asleep
Tia- no! That's part of what's so funny. I used to spend forever singing to my son when he was a baby. For Bubbles, it's like instant drowsiness! He waddles up, fluffs out, and his little eyes drift closed. We know now to sing through an extra verse, just to make sure he's good and asleep!
It's so fun seeing his little personality come out. He's so gentle, but we are seeing his boldness as his confidence grows. I was really excited he felt secure enough to scold us!
