Default Bandit the Hedgie

Hello everyone!
I'd like to introduce Bandit, my new hedgehog. He's my first hedgehog, and I'm absolutely stoked to finally have one to care for and love.
As of now, he's six weeks old and was born on July 3rd. We took him home only a few days ago, on August 15th.
The breeder was fairly close to us, only 45 minutes away. Well, it's pretty close compared to how far I've seen some people go. She had three hoglets available for me to choose from, and even though I prefer much darker hedgehogs, I was still drawn towards the little hoglet who is now Bandit - the lightest pinto of the bunch. The breeder stated he was incredibly laid back and friendly for a hedgehog, and I absolutely loved him. She also said he's going to be pretty big when he grows up, too. He came with a huge bag of food, a small igloo, water and food bowls, and a free vet visit within the next month - which made up for the fact I paid $350 for the little guy.
He is, like the breeder said, incredibly laid back for the amount of time I've had him. And no signs of stress so far at all, too. He's only balled up twice in the three days he's been here, and only huffs a little bit when I pick him up for the first time since he's woken up. After that, he sniffs around and explores a bit, and falls asleep in my arms if I let him. I feel incredibly blessed with him given that he's also around the prime time for quilling - he's lost a couple - but is still such a sweetheart.
Unfortunately, that big bag of food happened to be a Purina brand - the first ingredients being corn, by-products, and more corn. But I'm working on switching him to another brand. I introduced the food to him yesterday during bonding time, just a few pellets, and he gobbled it up immediately. Which was a huge relief to me. Turns out he isn't too interested in apples, though.
I just wanted to introduce him to you guys since I'm so excited to have him. I'll post updates every now and then if anything big happens if that's not considered spamming . Here are some pictures:
