Alberto & Obie
Our Maroon-bellies are posing as Greencheeks!  They are just so incredible.  Alberto is 7 yrs old and Obie is 6.  We adopted Alberto at 8 weeks and Obie was adopted at 2 yrs old.  She did not become friends with Alberto for over 18 was a very slow process, but now they are lovebirds.   Alberto is the curious one...never stops investigating everything in sight.  He says about 25 different words, begs to take a ride and does imitations.  Our babies are lots of work, but the love we get from them is worth it all.
