The Addition

10:22 AM

We did it. 
We decided to add another member to our family. 
Chris has been bugging me for weeks about it. 
I finally caved and agreed to do so.

We got a hamster. 
A tiny, no bigger than the palm of your hand, Russian Dwarf hamster. 
His name is Splinter (after the rat from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!)
Cameryn is smitten. 
She is very good with him, apart from trying to squeeze his brains out every now and then.  From the moment her eyes open in the morning until she goes to sleep at night, she wants to play with her hamster.  We got him on Saturday afternoon and she sat in front of his cage for hours talking to him.  Before bedtime, she even sat at her table with one hand on his cage and one hand on the top of Porter's head while singing "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" to them.  So freaking cute.  She has such a tender heart.

I've got to admit.  I like the little guy, too.

Please excuse the poor quality of the pictures.  They are from my phone.
