Fast forward to now, and we've been seeing a different him. He now plays with other kids at the playground. He readily approaches adults whom he is familiar with, to say hello and give hugs. Just the past weekend, we arranged to meet his penpal for some water play, and he got along pretty well with her from the start. If this was a year ago, he would have probably ignored her for the first 20 minutes or so!
