Question When can I safely hold babies?

Just wondering when I can pick up these little babies without Maisy eating them, They are 2 weeks and have fur.
She has been crawling onto my hand and dosnt appear to be scared of me or get annoyed anymore if I sit and watch her, she will always come and investigate and dosnt run away any more, do you think she will let me hold the babies?

I really want to clean the cage properly and I need to move them.

I think that you should be fine. I would wait for another's opinion to make sure though

you should be able to play with them now but before you do wait for the momma to leave the nest and take her ouot of the cage then rub your hands in the bedding to smeel more mouse like then have fun. Just make sure you dont have the momma mouse in there with them.
