I took Liam into the backyard with me to check on the garden this evening. I sat him in the grass, walked across the yard to the garden and he took off towards the hose like he'd found the coolest toy. He then headed my way as I was pulling weeds.
I picked him up and took him over to the RV parking area of our property where it is all gravel and LOTS of weeds. I thought for a second about putting Liam down while I weeded, but worried the rocks would be uncomfortable for him to sit or crawl in.
Then I thought, "Why not? He'll let me know."
He sat there and giggled! He just went crazy picking up the rocks and throwing them down and digging digging digging until he could only pick up dust... so he moved over to another spot and started over. Then he thought he would try "helping" me weed. I was just tickled that he found some "toys" he enjoyed so much. I just watched and waited for the pacifier to pop out and a rock to pop in. That idea never entered his cute little bald head.
Here he is in action (and this is real time... it looks like he is in fast motion though): Click here
