My son is obsessed with balls.  At about 10 months old, he discovered a basketball at daycare and it was soon obvious that balls were his preferred method of play.  He plays with other things, but the day always starts and ends with a ball.  I get him a new ball every chance I get and his focus is incredible.  Ball was one of the first real words he learned and the one he uses with extreme frequency for every occasion.  He can spot a ball at 50 paces, even out in the yard covered in snow.  “Ball!”  He screams, “BALL!”  It is getting to be a little annoying as we try to teach him other words, but Ball seems to express it all.  And yes, he is preoccupied by his own balls during every diaper change.  He gets kind of a glassy grin on his face as he reaches for his area.  Sasha says he only does it because I react, but it never gets old when he reaches down there and says: “Ball!”

    Sounds like he might be the kind of kid that’ll be all into sports — maybe all that focus on balls will be a good thing for him.
