Default New mommy + a question!

I just picked up my new baby yesterday, so I wanted to do a little introduction! She's about 8 1/2 weeks old, and I'm her favorite poop spot apparently (count is up to 7 times she's pooped on me since yesterday evening). I haven't thought up of a name for her yet, so I just like to call her "little one", "grumpy pants", and "poopbutt" for now.

I think she seems to be adjusting pretty well, but I've noticed that when we pick up her up and she balls up, she also seems to be whining along with huffing and clicking -- is this normal? It's sounds almost like a dog whine. I know that she's still getting used to us and her new environment, but I just want to be sure since nothing I have read mentioned whining.

Holy buckets! She is absolutely gorgeous.

I'm not sure about the whining, although, hedgehogs can make a wide variety of noises.

What a gorgeous baby! Check with one of the forum's resident experts about your question: Nancy, Kendra, Nikki, and Lilysmommy are the ones in my head right now.

I apologize, I meant Kalandra, not Kendra.

When I brought Emma home and put her in her new cage she hid and made a little sad whimpering sound. I thought maybe it was because she was scared and missed her mom and litter mates. I haven't heard her make it since though.
