Sammie said her first word

Sammie is 5.5 months old and she now says, "step up!" I'm pretty impressed. Frankly, I really didn't expect her to ever say anything.

She's been making more noises with a cadence that sounds like she's talking, but you can't understand a word of what she's saying.

It's been exciting. So far I'm not has inf any luck with target training, so this was a nice surprise. Not that she ever has to do anything for me to enjoy her, but it's kind of like when your kids start talking and doing new things.

Lol, she's training me well. She's now figured out that means I'm picking her up so she says it when she wants me to pick her up.

That's cute, it's so nice when they start talking or learn new words, my lorikeet (Bluey) the new words she's learnt is telling the dogs to "get out"

That's awesome! Congratulations! Must be so exciting for you. I know with my first talking bird, I was so excited when he repeated his first few words.
