Dirk has come a long way.
Many years ago he thought picking
Shanna up by her neck was a good idea.
She was about 3 or 4.
It was not a good idea.
This story has lived on in
So as you can imagine Dirk is a little
skittish around babies.
Somebody sneaked up on Dirk and
plopped Conner in his lap.
Dirk was not taken by surprise on this one but,
boys were *placed* on his lap.
This visit we let Dirk take things in his own stride.
He kept getting a little closer.
He even started *holding* them of his own volition.
He even got one on his lap himself.
And then one day THIS happened!
There is hope for him yet!
