As promised, photos of the newest member of the family

Here's Russell on the first day. He was pretty snuggly, having been separated from his family...













And Russell on the second day, rehydrated, with his eyes open now. What a cutie, and he'd grown overnight.













In this picture you can see just how small Russell is (since you don't know how big my hands are, necessarily). He's peeking out of the fold of a facecloth.

He's now in flea or leaper stage, so we haven't been handling him much until he's a little less jumpy. Good news is that he is doing much better than yesterday, having joined us in celebrating Pancake Tuesday (or Shrove Tuesday, not that we're religious, we just like that there's a day specifically to have pancakes for dinner!) and being full as a tick. He's been spending a lot of time running on his wheel now that he's big enough to make it turn. His ears are getting bigger and bigger, though he still looks a bit like a little bear.
