He's still in love with me which makes working with him difficult. I still can't seem to get him out of the living room without him getting nervous. He likes to get on the floor but I have to watch him closely because he tries to get to the drywall. He hasn't really increased his vocabulary as much as his mimicking sounds. He does enjoy hanging out on play gym. He doesn't seem to be the cuddly type. He doesn't really like being scratched. He loves to beak my fingers. I think he likes it when I rub his beak but not his head.
I have been following your Jasper's status also. Because we are both in California it makes us almost neighbors

Bella is a nervous bird also but in different ways. Going from room to room does not freak her out but she does not like water except for drinking.
I would like to be able to take her for car rides but she totally freaks when I bring in the small transport cage.

For the first 2 or 3 months she was with me Bella only made sound effects no words. After that her vocabulary started to explode. I think both our situations are age related. Bella is probably older that I was told and that's why she is talking so much. Your Jasper is (I think) younger that Bella and will get to talking eventually.
All the weird noises are fun to listen to anyhoo.

take care
I can remember when Smokey first came home with me,she was about six months old. Never having a "real" parrot before her,I didn't know what to expect.
I was driving a big rig at the time,and out on the road for a few nights out of the week,but my mom was retired,and home all day mostly.
I came home one day,and mom rushed to me saying " I think Smokey is sick...she's coughing"
So I went into the living room..Smokes was on her roof top..and started to cough..JUST LIKE MY MOM!! I told mom that,and she thought and listened for a few minutes,and said OMG! she IS coughing just like me! We had a good LOL with that!

Then came the phone would pick it up.." Hello? HELLO???" Gee we have a crank caller,this happens ALOT! I'm sure y'all can figure out where that came from..then it was the door bell ringing..the alarm clock beeping..didn't take long for mom to figure out what was going on by then

Yep...I am still amazed at an A.G.'s ability to mimic..and speak..even to this day! Do not under estimate the cleverness of your Grey!

Amy my beautiful Blue Front. Who was four months old when she picked me to go home with to her "forever" home in 4/1990.. DNA'd MALE in 2015

Rest in peace,my precious Smokey..4/2015 at 28 years young
