Movie: Playing soccer

As you may know, Felix started walking on his birthday. Now, a month later, he has progressed to soccer. Really.

Actually, there is quite a lot to see in this movie qua development. Note how he figures out how to go around the side of the speaker to get his ball within reach. His throwing is also greatly improved: he used to be able to throw backwards only, which is of limited utility as you might imagine. But the thing I find most interesting about this movie, kicking a ball aside, is how he treats the paper-covered light cabinets. He is under strict instructions not to touch them. He is unable to ignore them altogether, however, but seems to be reminding himself of the rules rather than simply transgressing them.

Wow! I am quite impressed by this video. You can't tell me it's STILL too early for Nikes. Barely two months ago his legs were just things one dragged around while pecs motored one ahead.

And interesting indeed, his consideration of your rules. For, how else are your rules to be transgressed other than to carefully consider them!
