Gabriel loves the outdoors. But he does not love grass. We're not sure why. He's not afraid of very many things. His first time on sand, he embraced it so enthusiastically he wanted to eat it. He tried to climb the steep flight of stairs at his Aunt Eileen's all the way to the top and pushed Grandma away when she acted as spotter. After repeated warning growls, he continues to grab at Dexter whenever we turn our backs. But grass made him cry the first time he sat on it. Our best guess is that he must think its a vegetable we want him to eat.
Today was a beautiful spring day and now it seems he will tolerate sitting on it, but he will NOT crawl. He doesn't even really want to touch the stuff. Here, we got on video the dilemma of his favorite ball being just out of reach on the grass. You can actually see him battle with the difficult decision of whether to crawl on the icky green stuff or risk letting the ball get away. Its hard being a baby.
Note: We are having trouble getting this video loaded (its much longer than the others) it'll be up as soon as we can.
