Hi Rocky! We might be neighbors, we live in so cal too! You are so cute, I love the baby pics. Mitchell is afraid of sewer gutters too, especially ones that read "drains to the ocean." Morgan is afraid of clothes hampers and large stuffed monkeys. They both bark when I sneeze.
You know... when Rocky was 8 weeks old he was even afraid of tennis balls! Now he just loves to chase them and would even do some soccer dribbling while carrying a tennis ball in his mouth. As for the gutters, I honestly do not know. He would drop to the floor if he is 15 feet from the sewer gutters.
