Our baby is growing up.

Tyler is putting weight on quickly. He is now feeding himself and has a bit of a routine. Where we weigh him while his Esbilac/meat mixture is being warmed up. He then has any meds and then his food. I let him tell me when he is finished. As he soon starts walking about in his box and looking for ways to get out. Sometimes he walks through his food before I can take it out. And then will need a bath. I do this by having a cream cheese carton filled with warm water a drop of baby oil and some lavendar buds, and he goes in, well I try to get him in. Usually just bottom and then with a cotton ball I sponge him off. Then a quick dry and a new paper towel in his box and his big red tube. He enjoys playing in this and going in and out and round and round. Sometimes at this point he will do a toilet and then it is another quick bath and towel replacement in the box. And while all this is going on we warm up his hot water bottle pad in the microwave. Then place it back into his nest box and do a tidy up in there. We also replace his water and give him some kitten biscuits in his box and I also see if he wants any at that point too. And in the last couple of days afterwards we go for a walk in the garden. He really enjoys these. He noses around in the grass looking for bugs and all sorts. He definately changes when he is outside and becomes a right little bruiser. He becomes a bit flattened looking and his chest puffs out. It is so cute to watch him. I hope you enjoy the video. :) Oh and he is now 118 grams!!! He is definately growing quick!

At that size he looks like he's soft & fluffy or are all those little quills spikey?

Only his belly is soft and fluffy and he can be not so prickly if he chooses, but those little quills are painful when he doesn't choose to be nice. :D
