Click the picture to see the cuteness live...right now he's sleeping. Such a sweet little roly-poly thing. Of course, baby bears in tubs are, by definition, adorable! Six months ago, he didn't exist, and now he's "the most popular baby in Washington". Amazing how a few months can change things, it really is.
Twenty-seven pounds! He's called "Butterstick" by many people because he was, as the Washington Post and the Zoo spokespeople kept saying, "the size of a stick of butter" at birth. Panda babies must have skin and bones like rubber!
Dr. Deborah Serani and the Pobble say cute is good for the soul, so I'm indulging myself! :-)
