In Gilbert's room I keep a medicine ball and some physical therapy balls that are holdovers from my bike accident. Little Man has begun to play with the smallest (1.1 lbs), but it is all the world to him.
He likes to pick up and carry the ball around and now is exploring how to throw it. The challenge is getting him to release it. You can see it in his face. He wants to throw it, but doesn't know how to throw it. When he finally lets go, it is a mad scramble to pick it back up immediately.
Funny note about this video. Now that Gilbert can walk, his scooting days are over, but for some reason he was scooting everywhere chasing the ball!
