It seems as though time has the ability to unravel an existence with change unimaginable if neglecting close observation. Similar to a humans first sightings of new buds on the trees in late spring, blossoming into the formation of a fully opened leaf. (If left without daily examination, if not watched closely it will happen and be missed.)
We now have much more deliberate belly crawls as we smell our way to a meal. Now able to notice the vibration of movement alerting us that meals on paws has entered. We can already comprehend this aroma. It signals our senses, 'Momma' has entered our "nest" (human reference = "whelping box").
Increasing in both strength and size is becoming vibrantly apparent daily. Fur growth and blackened noses take the places of the thinner coats which had a hue of pinkness in the first few days. Our ears are now covered in fine fur unlike the smooth baldness we were born with. We will continue to grow more fur as our faces begin to change shape (the initial rounded shape begins to show definition). Our rounded guinea pig faces are actually looking more dog which will take more time.
When bumped by our siblings or stepped on by Momma and abruptly awakened, we let out definite yelps, beginning to notice "comfort disruption." If we have wandered away from the warmth of each other, we yelp repeatedly until we have returned to our security. Alone does not feel good when awake. We are still a unit and will stay this way for a while longer. We feel good when we are together. Our ears are still sealed shut and our eyes are still closed as we move into our second week of life.
