We got our first budgie when he was a couple of months old, and he was very sociable, climbing all over anyone in the room. Our latest budgie, Twig, is much less outgoing, and can even be aggressive to people he doesn't like. All of our budgies have loved their one owner though, eating from your hand and snuggling up to you to rest.
They often like to mimic sounds like oven timers, which can be confusing at times, but also very funny. My biggest complaint would be the singing, which I find can be incredibly annoying at far too loud, but other family members like it! They also tend to chew on the corners of things, so it's worth making sure there's nothing to valuable in the places your bird likes to land.
