Baby Elvis has arrived! or as my sister and I like to say “Elvis is in the building” 🙂
I LOVE him to pieces and words can not describe how Brooke and I feel!!
Brooke keeps reminding me … he’s her bird … but I can’t help myself. He’s just so darling!
I keep going up to her room sneaking in some hugs (while she’s at work). I’ll share a picture that I can’t share on Facebook (she sees my post over there but she never looks at my blog). Or maybe I will later when she has chilled out!
He’s on my shoulder hiding in my hair.
The next picture is the very first picture I took … in the pet carrier, in my car, in the airport parking lot. This is exactly how we got Miss Bella, but we were so excited pictures didn’t happen :O
He sang to me just a little on the car ride home (he heard me talking on my phone with my sister). He hasn’t sung since, but I’m sure he will.
The last picture is of when I got home and tried to take him out of the cage … he decided to stay in there for about three more hours. Sorry blurry pic but it was impossible to get a clear shot and not freak him out.
Now for the rest of the story…. I ALWAYS have a story!
I got to the Air Cargo office 20 minutes early (maybe even 30) and I sat in my car and watched as his flight landed (on my phone).
Five minutes before it was to arrive I went to the front door … there was a notice that they had moved. So, I jumped in my car and rushed to the new office. And what do I see … they closed at 5:30 and it was 5:55. I knocked and rang the buzzer and by this time I was FREAKING OUT. Of course I started crying and called Dave to help me, what was I to do? Could he call the airport and find out where my baby bird was?
Then it occurred to me to call the breeder (Brandon), he was very calm and said just go to the real airport and go to Baggage Claim. Off I went again! When I approached the baggage claim office … all I can say is “if you hate your job, go find a new one”. We’ll leave it at that!!!
We had a 45 minute drive home and it was just like the day I got Bella, it felt like it took hours!!
So, that’s my story 🙂
He slept well last night but still hasn’t eaten so I’m signing off and heading upstairs to see if I can get him to eat.
Have a great day!!
p.s. I’m sorry I was snarky about the baggage claim dude, I have zero patience for ill mannered people …. I am from the south 🙂
