Baby football - Is this common

Baby football - Is this common

My son is only 15 months old. He's been walking around 3 months, just starting to run. About 2 weeks ago whilst visiting the in laws, he spotted a football. (Hubby's football is always in the car, never around the house so he never see's footballs really) He grabbed it and threw it on the floor and started kicking it around and dribbling the ball. About 20 mins later we had to go - he cried when we had to take the ball from him.

Yesterday I blew up a balloon and he's been doing the same thing with it on and off since he spotted it. I'll put a pic of him yesterday with the balloon in another post as it's quite large.

This morning I got out my older son's little football that has virtually always been ornamental to him, baby has been kicking it about ever since. I'm shocked. My older son sometimes throws it and kicks it about, but only to impress dad I'm sure. Do you think this is normal? I'm really proud!

This is perfectly normal, however the strange orange throw thing is not at all.

It is very normal - both my boys did this as babys. In fact my daughter did it as well, even though she is not sporty at all.

It is not common or normal my son is 11 and still wont kick a football!! The boy is obviously a star in the making.

Will he be a Wayne Rooney or a David Beckham? Obviously he could never reach the god like status of a Gary Lineker :wub:

... i only came online to visit Delia's site for tips on how to season a frying pan ...

I hope so! I'm really proud of him (though my other son shows talent in other ways too - which I am proud of).

HJ was saying that his mum was absolutely shocked after our visit. She had 3 sons of which two (my hubby and his one brother) play football regularly and love the game. Neither of them did anything like that.
