Kokkewiet is talking!!!!!!!! :-)

Post by Kokkewiet » Mon Aug 14, 2006 12:25 am

Hi everybody,

My Kokkewiet is talking :D . Last week I heard him mumbling something but wasn't sure. Yesterday while watching TV he said his name and tried to say hello Kokkewiet. It was too cute. He then chattered away to himself. He says his name like I say it and I heard him practising other words as well. I AM SO EXCITED :o . And now he doesn't stop talking. :lol:

This morning, while getting ready for work he talked to himself again, saying his name in different ways and trying to say hello and different kind of words. :D

They do sound like their owners. :lol:

I have a very southern accent and Baby speaks equally as country. Also, he says the phrase in different ways, just as we do when we speak. If Im in a good mood its a high pitched 'come er Baby' but if not its of course lower. He mimics both phrases and the pitch in which the phrases are spoken.

His Goooooooooooood Boooooooooooooy Baaaaaaby!!!! Is what gave it away. Because I use positive reenforcement only, he gets a very hearty 'good boy' when he does well.

I SO can NOT wait until my Baby starts talking. He chatters a ton right now. Sometimes I feel he is practicing, other times I feel it's just baby chatter and coos. Also, my boyfriend and I really watch what we say around him. I used to have a potty mouth and I tell my boyfriend to "shut up" and "whaetever" a lot. I don't want baby to pick up on it. Heck! is having Baby around helping my boyfriend and I's communication?? I think so!!!! :lol:

Talking!!!

Post by Bird crazy » Mon Aug 14, 2006 9:58 pm

What could be better than hearing your little feathered friend speak.
I try to say the same thing every morning "Good morning, I love you give me a kiss" and every night "Nite Nite sweetie" and I fully expect one morning for Nila to beat me to it. or one night when I put him in his cage he'll say nite nite to me. Of course that 's a long way off, But I'm looking forward to it.

You go Kokkewiet, we're anxiously awaiting the video.

I too have a potty mouth with my favorite being the 'F' word. I know... so lady like, huh.

Anyway, Love the word, so interchangable. It can be a noun, verb, adjective... you name it, it works!

Baby doesnt say it though. He seems to only say what I say *to* him during very direct one on one conversation.

Did I tell ya'll though that he had realized it pisses his human brothers off to be called 'pretty little girls'? He now picks on them... bout time the tables turned. THEY HATE IT. Baby thinks its sooo funny, as deos Mommie.

They are all at that age where to be called a girl is fighting words. Somehow Baby figured out what would get them back and went with it.

:lol:

I hope Baby doesnt pick up my bad words but my resolution this year was to stop with the really bad words: F, SOB, MF... and such. :roll:

And I have done great! But if I get worked up, I curse without realizing it... still.

bad words

Post by Bird crazy » Tue Aug 15, 2006 8:36 pm

Just a quick second hand story, Met a man at the pet store who told me about his African grey. Every morning the man would get up and say "morning captain" to the bird and the bird woud say "morning captain"
well one morning he got up walked past the bird said morning captain and the bird wouldn's speak to him so he finally said "a--hole" The next morning he got up walked past the bird and said morning captian and the bird said "morning a--hole".

Moral of the story: don't call the bird anything you don't want to be called.

Now thats GOOD!

I tend to say ow, bitch. Not calling him a bitch but the situation. He doesnt bite anymore so maybe he didnt pick that up.

Or, knowing Baby, he is waiting for my extremely catholic mother-in-law to visit for a nice hardy 'hey bitch'. God, I'd die. As would she. Dont think she has ever heard a bad word. :lol:

That would not be good Mik...

I don't curse if ever and never around the fids...last thing I need is to hear one of those words over and over coming out of my babys beak!

Baby says 'People Suck'. I taught him that early on and happen to agree, for the most part.

He says peoples though so he messes it up. 'Peoples suck'.
