Re: Arika's world, from the beginning

I would love to see Arika getting a blow dry! That video was so cute. Iím glad youíve been able to find what she likes. All the berries are super messy! Sunny guts them then drops the skin and leaves them all over the carpet!

Looking forward to more Arika videos!

Re: Arika's world, from the beginning

I thoroughly enjoyed myself! Thank you!
The Rickeybird loves the blowdryer, too, and I'm glad, way up here in arctic Cleveland winters...
Congratulations on how well everything's turning out!

We will work on another bath time video and see what we can get for her interaction with the blow dryer. She looks nice and her bath.

Much thanks for all the nice compliments.

Kelly, Karl, and Arika

Thank you for your kind words and we are very proud to share.

I was at the eyeglass store with Kelly and while she was looking at new frames and I chatted with another couple about our baby Arika. I showed them some photos of her and they paid me the compliment that I was obviously a proud Daddy! I guess I was bragging a lot

Tami, we were looking at your photo album and your photos are fantastic. We hope to break out the pro gear soon and spend more time on better photos of Arika.

Thanks
Kelly, Karl, and Arika

Thanks and glad you enjoyed the video. That day was her second or third time with the blow dryer and she did really good. She was a little wary of it the first time but the nice warm air changed her mind quickly.

Glad to hear Rickeybird likes the blow dryer too. We watched a video of other birds getting a blow dry after a bath and decided to try it. Glad we did!

Thanks
Kelly, Karl, and Arika

Re: Arika's world, from the beginning

We'll be working on another bath and blow dry video tomorrow but wanted to post this older video from when she was only about 11 - 12 weeks old. Posted with Terri's permission.

She was still in her little basket from the nursery, and we just finished our visit with her at the birdfarm We gave her back to Terri so she could return her to the nursery. Terri just couldn't resist giving her some love before returning her to the rest of the babies. It was so hard to leave after our visits, but we knew it would make a difference later. We are so glad we went there every weekend to see her.


Enjoy
Kelly, Karl, and Arika

Re: Arika's world, from the beginning

Arika is becoming a little more vocal lately. A few more "Hello's", "Hi's", and we think her attempt at singing or trying to say "la la la". We've yet to capture that on video but have a plan ! We'll let you know how that turns out.

She is recognizing our vehicles from her window when we pull up to the front of the house. If I'm home before Kelly and she parks in front of the house, Arika will let me know.

We just uploaded another Arika bath video that we did last weekend.
Also, per request, the best we could do at capturing her getting a blow dry.
Everyone had a lot of fun and she looked so fluffy and clean when we were finished.

We hope you enjoy and have a few laughs. We sure did



Thanks
Kelly, Karl, and Arika

Love the videos, Kelly and Karl! Arika is beautiful and so well adjusted. Bonding early paid off!

I so love the bathing and blow dry videos! Arika is such a beauty, wet or dry.

Thanks very much for the compliments. We believe the weekly visits while she was at the BirdFarm made a huge difference. She had a lot of socialization while there but seeing us every weekend made our bond stronger and was definitely the highlight of our week.

She is doing very well, and starting to show a little independence too.
We had her out with us for a few hours in the living room. She was on Kelly's lap when she suddenly took off. She didn't go far and landed softly about 8 ft away on the carpet in the hallway. I got up to retrieve her and noticed that she was waddling towards her room so I decided to see how this would unfold. She walked into her room, all the way over to her condo, lifted herself up on the door and stood on the bottom grate. She turned around and looked at me so proud as if to say "Look what I did". I guess she was finished visiting us and decided it was time to chill out in her room. Sigh...... They grow up so fast LOL

Thanks
Kelly, Karl, and Arika (AKA Princess Poops A Lot)
