Baby humans and baby hogs

Well, we went to the hospital last night and saw our brand new niece, Alexandra! She was gorgeous, I can honestly say. You know how some newborn babies are a little on the fugly side? Not Lexi. Perfectly pink and pretty, with a little round dome full of dark hair, her dad's chin, ten tiny fingers, and ten tiny toes. She weighed 6 lbs., 6 oz. and was 20" long.

Hubby and I are considering ownership of a hedgehog. We'd been tossing around the idea of a hamster or something to keep at his office, and decided a hedgie would be perfect. They're easy to care for, litter-box trainable, affectionate, and durn cute. Now the only trick is to find a place to buy one. Apparently, sellers of hedgehogs must be USDA-licensed, and it's a pain, according to a local pet supply. Wish us luck!

Anyone have experiences with small animals they'd like to share?
