Re: Raven is getting confused with words

Such a fun thread - I don't feel too bad reviving it!

Cairo has picked up my kisses to him (one of the rare things he learned from me instead of my partner). I always lean in with "mmmmmm-", then boop his beak with a "-wah". So he started going "mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm-wah!" Then suddenly I hear his favourite word being merged into "Helloooooooommmmmm-wah!"

He tries so hard to put "hello" into everything. Like "peek-a-boo" becomes "he-e-llo!" when he feels like it. He'll still do a proper "peek-a-boo", but somedays everything is "hello". The only things that don't become "hello" are words he firmly believes the context of.
