Shelby helps me study!

I was studying this evening for an exam and heard a splash in Shelbys cage, she decided to start taking baths on her own in her bowl finally a couple days ago. So a little later I checked the bowl and took it out to clean it, when I came back she was hanging out the door. So I gently picked her up (we're still working on step up). I gave her head scritches and talked to her for awhile. She fluttered down onto the bed and it put my hand down for her to get in. I then held her to my chest and she climbed up and snuggled under my chin and stayed there. I had her out in the living room for about an hour. She is such a sweetheart, never once tried to nip me. Didn't even use her beak to help climb when I was working on step up. I wish I could find something other than pellets that she would eat so I can use treats to help with training.
Peeps finally ate a half of birdie bread muffin today!! I've been trying since July when I got him to eat something other than seed and millet!

Here's Shelby after our study session
