Two weeks old.

Tomorrow morning, the kittens will be two weeks old.  They're growing by leaps & bounds, and though they are still quite small, they've nearly doubled in size since birth.  Momma Cat is doing an amazing job taking of her little babes--keeping the bed warm, nursing all day, cleaning them up--with only the occasional break for fresh air.  Just within the past few days their eyes have all opened though they prefer to keep them closed for now--I imagine light is harsh on new eyes.  

They make the funniest little squeals too--mini meows.  

Apologies for the picture quality on these.  Normally I shoot in complete manual mode, however I tried auto-focus and an automatic camera setting this evening.  It really shows.  But I couldn't help passing on the cuteness anyway.
