Hi Everyone!

Baxter and I have been hanging out today while I cook for him so I decided to take some random photos and a video.

Hope you enjoy.

YIPPEE!!! Here's the gorgeous Baxter!!! :D WOW, I can't believe how colorful he is, Shawna! I bet you can't ever imagine your life without him now, can you? :D

Beautiful photos, and I cracked up laughing at the video.

Wendy - I absolutely can't imagine life without Baxter! I'm so happy that we "stumbled" upon him at the bird store that day in June.

Chris - Baxter isn't very noisy at all. When he wants me, attention, or something, he will definitely let out his loudest call, but it really isn't bad at all. Otherwise, he makes these cute noises on and off throughout the day - mostly when we are having play time together or cuddling. He will get a little noisy when I'm talking on the phone or to someone at the house when he thinks the focus should be on him. He will try to talk over me - LOL! Not sure if he is going to be a "talker" yet although some of his vocalizations are taking on word-like cadences (or that might just be my wishful thinking LOL). I'll try to take a video of his sounds and post it here.

Baxter is such a cutie :). He has the fullest color I've ever seen on an Illiger's baby. Absolutely GORGEOUS. The babies I see at the stores never have that much red and blue at that age.

Maria, it's actually a seagrass mat. The ladder on the play stand was hard for Baxter to navigate when he first came home so I just wrapped the mat around the ladder and secured it with those plastic pull ties. Made a big difference for him!

I have to admit that I am surprised by Baxter's vibrant colors, too, Julie. I'm estimating he is about 4 months old now and he looks like a very "big boy" to me already!

Yeah, but at least he's polite and puts it back... unlike some of mine, who have been known to fling them across the room when they're done with them.

Mark - Baxter is young... I'm sure he will throw polite out the window (or across the room) eventually!!!
