Fresh EGG Stats: Height: 30 1/2 inches; Weight: 20lbs 2.3 oz.

A brief glimpse of the EGG's accomplishments:

Walking like a pro. Enjoys action and adventure whenever possible, climbing, exploring all areas, getting dirty, putting foreign objects into mouth, organizing and deconstructing objects, looking at books and listening to rhymes, singing, dancing and making noise. Loves swimming and can go up to six seconds underwater, jumping in the water from a seated position is always a real thrill, and is almost up there with attempting to escape from the pool. Loves to socialize, especially with older kids and any and all random strangers. Trilingual (sort of), words include: mama, dada, baby, hi, bye, up, out, NO, ball, lubdub (hungarian for ball), agua and wawa, gato (cat), nena (nelly, her nanny), nana (banana, a fine distinction there), num num (food in her own special language), plus many others that we have not determined. Likes to carry on long conversations when she wakes up between her cat and monkey that seem to primarily consist of "doo du doo du" sounds. Oh and last but not least, her current favorite "phrase" is UH OH!
