I was telling a story to Wil at dinner about a sales clerk who made a comment to me about my pregnancy (she guessed I was due soon--I wish!) and I said that she "really stuck her foot in her mouth."
While we were still laughing about it, I turned back to Aurora to find her chewing on her big toe. She stopped for a moment when she saw that I saw her, exclaimed "eat foot!" and resumed her efforts to chew on her toes. I was trying to figure out why she would ever chew on her toes when Wil exclaimed, "Yep, you're got your foot in your mouth, too, Aurora!" Then we just about died laughing. Aurora was quite tickled that she got us to laugh so hard. :)
None of the links related to our blog on our main website, wilnregina.com, appear to be working correctly. The individual blogs will direct you to a post published on January 30, 2010 and the archive links will take you to February 2009.

Sorry about this, we will try to fix it as soon as possible. Blogger (who hosts our blog) has been updating some things and apparently reshuffled links. Oops! :) ~Regina
Have I told you about Aurora and radishes? No, of course not. We only just pulled our first one within the past week. 'Tis a strange and unexpected friendship...
Strangely enough, she not only held onto the radish after that first little taste, but continued to nibble on it.
So far she's been the only person in our house who's gotten more than a bite of a radish from our garden. At this point, we're getting only one ready one every 2-3 days and those go straight from the garden to rinsing to Aurora's hand, where it stays until it's been nibbled all away. :)
They're also an easy plant for her to help pick when one is ready. All in all, it works out well because neither Wil nor I really like radishes by themselves. Once we get more than one at a time, we can have a salad with them, but for now we're happy to let Aurora have her special treat.
Every time I see her nibbling on a radish, I think "Grandpa (her great-grandpa Bob) would be so proud!" :*) I sure hope he gets at least a few little glimpses of us from his spot in heaven.
