yes, those are rocks in her mouth. and yes, she was chewing them- grinding her teeth together and chewing them. sometimes i don't know where this girl comes from. but i like it. well, not the noise when she is grinding her teeth on rocks, but i like everything else about her. wait, everything except her tendencies to bite and scratch. those, not so like-able.
this evening i asked her "what do you say if you hurt someone?"
her response "ta-da!"
it's a good thing she is so cute.
