I've noticed that Gabriel is now handing things to people. It's very cute! He handed me a ball the other day, and he tried to stuff a drooly toy bird in my mom's mouth not long after. This means he already knows how to share, right? And we can bypass the "IT'S MINE" phase of toddlerhood, right?
And so begins phase one of teaching manners: saying "thank you" when a cute baby hands you something.
It's never too soon for a southern boy to learn thank you.
