He did wind up playing with it, cautiously, a little later, but still hasn't gotten on it and really let loose, yet.
He did much, much better this year at the family gathering at my brother's. No withering or whining...just running around and pretty much at ease for the most part.
I did a lousy job at getting any pictures, ya know, with all the freakin' unwrapping I had to do. I got a pic of him in his little suit and a few pics of him off on the couch with his favorite toy still in its box...
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
