The swing was a big hit -- he requested it. Michael, a 4 year old friend of his, was a help and pushed him for a while. He was happy just hanging out and watching the other kids play. After a week of being cooped up with a fussy velcro baby it was nice to get outside -- and it was Char (Michael's mom) who is well experienced in ear infections, who suggested a revisit to the doc's office (THANKS!) since he was still punky. It's nice to have friends who will have you over, even if your bugger isn't 100%.
