Oh, and I still need some help with the names... =)

Okay, so here are some announcements...

  • When I get 15 followers, I am going to do a giveaway... so tell any one you know who is interested in gerbils... or not... to follow my blog!

  • When I have posted 100 posts, I am going to have a little celebration... =)

What do you think?!?

Sound good?!

Let me know!

Day 17... =)

I seriously got probably some of my cutest pictures yet today...  I'm really need some help on which one to enter in the October photo contest, but I though of it too late... otherwise, I would have had another poll for you.  Still, I think I need a poll on something else... more on that later. =)

Anyways, here are the most adorable pictures of... this litter. =)

I put them in a box... I love this for pictures at this age.

They now officially all have their eyes open... I love this picture... them all in a stack. =)

The two ones in the back are so cute!

I love this one 'cause the little girl is so perfectly in focus.

*too cute!*

I'm pretty sure I'm gonna enter this one in the contest...
 Don't you just love how his foot is hanging over the girl?!

... or this one.  I really need to decide!
 Next I did some individual photos.. first up is...


love this one...

...adore this one!

and then there's...


so very poised! ;)


this one's my favorite =)

and, last, but not least...


this one is my fav of him =)


Just thought I'd share what I used to take those incredible =) pictures!

a butter box...


with a fluorescent light...

right next to it...

which gives it really great lighting inside! =)
And yes, that is on my bed. =)

Okay so I need some help on the names...

Does anybody have some ideas??!?!

All of these names need to start with 'E' 'cause... that's just what I'm doing. =)

I'm thinking maybe Ellie for the girl, but I can't quite decide on what to name the boys... any suggestions??!?

The numbers are just not going to work!! =)

Thanks in advance!!

Day 16

Here are some quick pics from today...
Jenna and Alfie in their split cage


*so cute*

"Where's mommy!"

"Oh, there she is...

... and here's daddy too!"


*adorable* =)

running around... practicing some acrobatics... =)

I really like this one... except for the shadow of daddy's tail...  =(

Hope you enjoyed!  Hopefully more tomorrow...! =)

The pups are 2 weeks and 1 day old today.

It's amazing how fast they grow! =)

But first...
'family huddle' #1-- Bonnie, Winnie, and Nellie... down there somewhere. =)

and family huddle #2!!!  Charlie, Chloey, and all the littles...

... and from a different view.  *awww*

"Woo hoo!  I got away... almost."
 They are soo crazy right now, because their eyes are almost open... and that's just the way they are.  Trying to get good pictures of them was pretty hard... but I tried!! =)


peeking out...
 Oh, and by the way, this one is the 'girl'... the one I thought was a girl, but is actually a boy... oh well. =)
Finally... sorta' still!

I love the way his legs are in this picture... =)

... and this one.
 The last two pictures may look like he is being squeezed to tightly... don't worry... he's not.=)This guy was really calm when I first picked him up, so I got some cute pictures to start with...


"I can escape!"

"Oh no you can't, buddy"

And... the poor lone girl... I'm thinking I will probably pair her up with Jenna's baby, Kailey.

Oh yeah... I have some news about Jenna... at the bottom of this post!

dodging the camera

~li'l cutie~

peeking out =)

 One way they would calm down nicely was when I would hold them by their necks... it looks kinda' weird, but, hey, they're probably pretty used to it by now! =)

You know, with their parents carrying them around like that all the time. =)

She looks so funny in this one! =)

And now...

the news about Jenna!!

I put her in a split cage with Alfie... a young male of mine... and 
they are now another breeding pair!
 (at least they will be by the time they have their babies =)

I have been having a lot of interest lately, and decided I needed some more babies around here!
