    You can see how tiny the egg is, and you can think you know how tiny that baby will be. But let me tell you, it doesn't matter how many button eggs you see, or pics of button babies, it is always amazing how tiny they really ARE!!! You will be amazed!! Their little heads are about the size of a pencil eraser!! (the ones on the end of the pencils!) [​IMG]
