That is great!! It is hard to fight nature.....they have been hibernating longer than we have been around, I think! More seriously, I was nervous the first time my adults hibernated, and same with my first year with my babies. Keep the substrate moist (I like peat moss) as babies dry out, and always leave a shallow dish of clean water with him/her. Try some soft, natural , living foods like small slugs and small worms. You can lift up bricks, rocks, logs to find these...pillbugs too.
My "babies" (now almost 3) inside are just starting to become active too.
