Otis’ new favorite obsession is balls! Ok- get your mind out of the gutter. While his hands certainly roam during diaper changes, I am talking about sports balls.
Tennis balls, bouncy balls, basketballs, soccer balls . . . He loves them all. He throws them quite well, is hit or miss with kicking, and is still figuring out catching. When you ask him if he’s ready to catch it he says “reaby.” This usually means he is not ready at all, so then we say “hands together” and he sticks his little hands out. If the throw is spot on, a catch is made.
Here are some highlights from his early sporting days.
