For the past year Jake has avoided swings. He was on them as a 1 year old, and seemed to enjoy them, but somewhere along the way he changed his mind and adamantly would not be put into a swing. Seems that he had to approach them on his own terms. Right now those terms are that they are fine to play with if you are in a position to get on and off yourself.
This is how he likes to "swing" -- flying!
Oh but what he does like? The tire swing -- only if at least one other person gets on there with him. Then, swing away!
