as our boy starts to explore the world around him a little bit more, we have been trying to give him different toys to play with to see if he likes them or not. he's had a few that are of no interest whatsoever, but there have been a few that he rather likes. being equal opportunity parents, we even tried out a sports toy. diana and i are not exactly sporty, so it is with fear and trepidation that i even offered ledger a soccer ball. one of my biggest fears as a parent is that my child will really love sports and then i will have to go to all of his little league games and pretend to be interested! gah! no thanks! fortunately he only seemed mildly interested, holding it for a while, but quickly moving on to staring once again, mesmerized, at the ceiling. hey, anything is better than a soccer ball, right?
