Parrot Speak

I've been trying to teach my parrot to make monkey sounds and I've also been calling him monkey so when I walked by his cage on my way to the laundry room and he called out to me,"Hey monkey" it shouldn't have surprised me but it did. I was almost as excited as a mother hearing her child say a new word.
After he said it he made the "oohoohooh" monkey sounds to go with it. They are so good at mimicry.

I like calling him monkey and he likes the attention.

My husband is afraid it'll confuse him. I say he'll be fine. It may even be good for him because he thinks he is the master of the universe so maybe calling him monkey will keep him humble.
