I absolutely love the videos of Marnie (Thanks, Jenevie!), the blue Indian Ringneck parrot that gives kisses to all the stuffed animals and says, “You’re just so cute!” It’s a common saying in our household if we ever call one of our birds cute, we follow it up with, “You’re just so cute!” on our best Marley-voice.
