This is Cecelia. Cecelia is our pet parrot. When I arrived on the first day, I thought she was a small child because of the way that she speaks.

Cecelia is smart. She knows how to say several things, but so far the only thing I can really make out is: “Que rico, mi amor.” And also: “Lucas! Lucas!” That’s the name of one of the dogs. Lucas barks a lot, so Cecelia often tells him to shut up by screaming his name.

She also likes to sing. Her favorite song is “Yellow Submarine.” I think they must be pretty big Beatles fans here, for I have a Beatles poster on the wall here in my bedroom.

Oh, and she can dance. She spreads her wings, puts her head bad, and sways back and forth.

Parrots are pretty smart. It’s kind of scary.
