Harry has played with balls - batting and bowling and playing golf - as much as the next little boy, I suppose. But, I guess I have to admit that balls never really seemed like a genuine favorite toy for him. He's actually starting to throw, mostly stones into the stream, surprising well and far, but somehow with Harry balls have always been something of a means to an end rather than the focus themselves.
Maybe it's just Jeremy manner, his naturally enthusiastic demeanor, but Jeremy loves balls. "Ball" is one of his first few words - here he is (right) using it - but even early on Jeremy would often play with balls for the sake of playing with balls, like with this tub of plastic ones, tennis balls, and juggling balls. He still does.
