New Pics as Promised!

I mentioned on our family adoption blog that I had new pics that my mom sent me of John Paul being grandpa's little helper. :) They were building a bigger dog crate for their little dog. Sure beats buying one and John Paul and grandpa Rob looked like that had a blast! I posted the grandpa's helper pictures backward in order. The progress will start from the bottom up. He has also started feeding himself now! I had only been able to get him to do it several times, but thanks to grammy Gwen's home made banana pudding he is feeding himself now. Now why didn't I think of that? lol!

So here are the new pics of him. I have video of him eating too, but I am not sure if I can get it to load here. I have a wireless internet connection and it is downloading slowly. No complaints though! Thanks the Lord I have internet in my apartment!! I will try to tackle the video download tomorrow.

It looks like John Paul had a lot of fun helping Grandpa!

Way to go on feeding yourself John Paul!

Great photos, thanks for sharing them with us.

I have to say that it isn't really a crate, just an enclosure to keep snapper in while John Paul is visiting. After all the time spent the Little Snapper likes the smaller one better. Go At least grandpa and JP had a good time making it. I forgot to tell you that yesterday he took his little tool set and sat down in front of it like he was going to fix something on it. We love having him here!!!! Can't wait for you to get home with Dasha. I love you. Mom

Hi Kristy and John Paul,

Your posts are so entertaining! My name is Erin, and I am a college student with mild cerebral palsy. I’m a special education major and have hopes of becoming a disability services director of a university after graduate school. I have just launched a blog that is still getting started, but with the title “Empowering People and Changing Lives,” I hope that it will provide a wealth of resources for people who care for children, specifically those who are affected by disability. I will also be chronicling some personal experiences and will be sharing some thoughts about those along the way. Your blog has also been included in my blogroll, so I hope that together, we are able to collaborate to provide resources to those who are in similar situations. The blog’s address is From there, you will be able to read the posts I have written, find out all about me, check out my blogroll, eventually look at many resources I have gathered, and contact me.

Look forward to reading many more of your posts! Happy blogging!
