I guess I can't call them hatchlings anymore... they are getting so big. This week I had to make the entry holes in their humid hides bigger. I recently signed up for a ceramics class/studio and I am hoping to make their more permanent hides next week. They are getting calmer and more handleable all the time. They are now 5 and a half weeks and 13 and 14 grams each. Still waiting to sex them to name them.
I think #1 kind of
My babies are a month old now. It is absolutely amazing how fast they are growing; every time I peek in at them I am shocked. They are around 11/12 grams now (my scale only goes to the nearest gram). They are calming down some but still very fast. I held them both some today and Gecko 2 ran up my arm to my shoulders, then evaded my hands until he found that perfect spot on my back that I can't reach, forcing me to gently strip off my shirt to retrieve him off it. They are still eating and pooping

I've decided to start blogging the hatchlings instead of foruming it. The blog tool here is really cool and I think probably underutilized.
Gecko #1 hatched on Aug 15, 2012, and #2 hatched just about 24 hours later. I'm just going to stick with that first date from here on, so on Wednesday they were 3 weeks.
3w1d- gecko #1 eating mealworms
3w3d - they are both right around 9 grams today.

Today I had a vacation day, so I moved the babies up to 16 quart sterlites since they have been trying to scale the walls of their nurseries. And I snapped some pictures along the way. #1 doesn't look all that

I have made a HUGE step forward today in how the sites code is handled. As most know, I am 100% self taught when it comes to everything web related. lol Today I managed to figure out how I can use all of the default vbulletin functions outside of the forum application. This means that I can begin swapping over the caresheets, articles, diseases, etc. to use all of vbulletins stuff while still using my independant template system. This way, if you are viewing a caresheet, you can still get private
