Just thought I'd share this with you. Every night around 8.00 - 8.30p.m. Dooby goes to bed, he sits on his favourite bed time perch, then around 9.00p.m. I cover him up and say "Night night, Dooby!" and blow a kiss. Well, last night, same old routine, he put himself to bed as usual, but then he blew a kiss and said "Night night, Dooby!" It sounded really funny.

Well, he hasn't said it today so far. I wonder if they "know", I suppose they get used to a routine, do this say that, do something else say that, if you know what I mean. It was really cute though. Then because I was laughing, he started to laugh, it was hardly a winding down period. LOL.

I've heard that if you only use the words in context, they can learn to use them the same way. Just like you've been doing with Dooby and night night. :D

This morning he said "Good morning!" So we are keeping those two saying just for bedtime and mornings and hopefully, it will all slot into place for him.

I've never had a bird that talks before either, unless you count a budgie that I had when I was a kid that cried like the cat!! lol

Well Dooby definitely wins the chatterbox award! :p He's getting cleverer and cleverer every day!
