One of the hand-me-downs we received this summer was a Fisher-Price swing. At first Reeve hated it. Tears all around! So we decided to wait a few weeks and see if he’d like it later. In the meantime, Phoebe enjoyed it, even when it was turned on.

Then yesterday, when Reeve was in a really good mood, we decided to try again. He was in it happily for a whole ten minutes. Then he got the hiccups, the tears started, and he and decided that was enough.

Today I thought I’d go for broke and really leave him in there for a while so I could get some stuff done around the house. So I waited again until Reeve was in a happy mood. Success! Reeve took a nice deep nap, and mommy got some hands-free time to get some chores done!
