So as some of you may or may not know... Yesterday was my birthday. Though I'm really not making this thread about me. This is actually about Lucy.

When I bought Lucy from Carolyn, she gave me a paper with her egg-laid date and her hatch date. By sheer coincidence, I ended up with a bird that hatched on April 30th, 2015; a year ago from yesterday, where I had been born 19 years ago.

Lucy has been with me for almost a year (I got her in July), and I have to say, she's definitely brought a lot of joy to my everyday life. She's curious, playful, and overall endearing. We didn't quite hit it off at first... There were some miscommunication problems between the two of us, but once they were worked out, she became my best friend and "personal assistant" (she actually just tries to distract me).

Both of our birthdays have were pretty laid back, which had been pleasant. Her celebration had consisted of food, lots of scritches, and playing with toys that are light enough for her to carry around (she loves to carry things). We played "avian fetch" with a plastic spoon, where she'd drop it off the table and I pick it back up.

Additionally, I've made this slideshow with a bunch of Lucy's pictures. They're in order for the most part, though I may have gotten some of them out of order.
Thanks to Carolyn for the baby pictures. :D My editing skills are mediocre at best, but I hope you all enjoy.

Adorable! I like the little birthday song and dance, it was both cute and funny.

The joint birthday can be taken as a sign that you two were made for each other.

Happy Birthday Lucy and Jessi! Best wishes to both of you!
I almost missed this thread as usually I don;t check videos on a regular basis. But I am glad that this fact was mentioned somewhere else

I realized I never did give you guys proper thanks.

Thank you all for the birthday wishes. We did indeed have fun. :D I don't think Lucy really understood that there was a special occasion at all, but she was happy. I kinda wish I could've done more for her birthday, much like how this woman did for her bird:

Different choice of toys and "cake" though.

Her 1 year arrival is coming up though, as I got her on the 25th of July. I think I might get some toys and avi cakes or nutri berries (or both), for the occasion.

Carolyn, would you mind at all if I were to bring Lucy over for a bit of a visit/family reunion? Not sure how she'd react to seeing her old flock, but I'm wondering if she'd enjoy it at all, or if it would just scare the heck out of her. :lol:
