so cute when they are babies. but hard to tell since their noses will probably not stay that shape as they grow. Could be Eastern harvest mouse.

I have a similar rodent, not 100% sure on the ID, though: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/881...

That is perhaps the most adorable rodent I've ever seen, I hope you find out what it is!
