Surprise! It's a baby! Congrats!

Tonight, I gave birth for the first time. As you will remember many months ago mom thought I was pregant as I was acting all mean and wouldn't let her pick me up, which is very unusual for me. She did some research and found out that mood swings were a characteristic of pregnancy in chinchillas, so go figure. But time passed and I didn't look pregant nor did I produce a baby so mom just thought I was just moody minus a baby. Recently, I have taken to laying on my side, mom thought that meant I was hot and worried abot heat stroke, so she cranked the air conditioner for us (the sign that Kemper was ill before he passed was him laying on his side) so everytime mom saw me laying down she would panic and make sure I was ok. Regardless, she had no idea I was pregnant. Then she heard the funny little squeak, and then she saw the fluffy little baby and she nearly passed out (literally her knees weakened and she fell to the floor). She ran to tell dad and couldn't get the words out, and then she did and he thought she was joking, but when her knees went weak again and she was on the floor he knew it was for real. Now it is almost 3am and we have just finished baby proofing my old, smaller cage. The bars are far to wide and my baby keeps sneaking out so we had to put up a cardboard fence to keep my baby in. The cage had to be cleaned first though and then chinchilla housewares moved. My house, my bowl, and my dust bath house (minus the dust as they can not bathe for the next 10 days). Mom is now a grandma and she just can't believe it! The baby is sooooooooo cute and sooooooooo curious and happy and jumping around. It (and I say it because we need to sex it still) is healthy and very furry! The color is hard to say as it is a mix of beige and grey, so we think maybe the baby will be a light greyish color... either way we all love the baby very much. If it is a girl then her name will be CoCo Chanel (CoCo for short). But if it is a boy then daddy gets to name the baby... pray that she is a girl!
