Try not to squee too loudly, you might disturb the blogs next door!

This tiny deer was delivered by Caesarean section at a wildlife hospital after his motherwas killed by a car. Little Rupert, who is so small he can fit in an adult's hand, was bornafter vets failed in their battle to save his mother.

"teh cute... i has it"

At just six inches tall and weighing just over a pound, he is now in an incubatorin the intensive care unit at Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital in Buckinghamshire. He has only recently opened his eyes. Les Stocker, founder of Tiggywinkles, said: 'Rupert's mother had very severe injuries. We brought him out and got him breathing and then he went into an incubator on oxygen.He is now being fed by a tube.'

Tucked up: Rupert in an incubator. Try not to snorgle your COMPUTER!!

Staff are optimistic Rupert, now five days old, will make a full recovery.'Deer are very, very tricky but this one has spirit. He's an extremely feistylittle guy and quite pushy,' Mr Stocker said.

You'll be in Hawaii, and it looks like Erin and I will be in Manhattan. I have an offer to go to Wall Street, and even with the economy in the toilet, it's an outstanding offer.

If we leave next summer, it will have been 7 years in DC. CRAZY!!! Plus, I'm so not a city person, so why am I contemplating moving to the concrete jungle???
