Hello--

I'm new here and wanted to introduce myself. I found just mommies while looking for cloth diapering info and saw the autism forum. It seems it would be nice to connect with others outside my usual groups of friends that are all in-person.

I have 3 boys. My oldest Charlie has Aspergers/High Functioning autism. My 7 year old Ethan is on the severe side of autistic. I also have an almost 6 month old who is developing typically so far (but my other two seemed typical at this age, too, so who knows).

They are all great boys, and really a joy to me. Even though they can be challenging of course, I wouldn't trade them for the world!

Also, I live in the greater Seattle area where we get a mix of services. Pretty good (or at least not bad) school services. We still do ABA type home program for our 7 year old who is non-verbal.

Thanks,
Cathy

Welcome! I'm Natalie SAHM to Cameron (moderate to high ASD and he'll be 3 at the end of July) and Tyler (almost 5 months old). This is a great place to talk about your achievements (how ever small) and your frustrations. We're all in the same boat and we understand what life is like. Just jump right in and post away. Can't wait to get to know more about your and your 3 boys!

It's nice to meet you all. Thanks!

I have seen your posts all over the Cloth Diapering Board, Crissy. I am just starting to cloth diaper my youngest. I did cloth with my older two, and have decided to do it again because I like it so much better. I've been amazed and somewhat overwhelmed with all the choices compared to 10 years ago when I CD'd my first. They are all so cute nowadays, and it's tempting to go crazy buying all the cute diapers I see. I've bought 1 bum genius to start out and I will get 3 more tomorrow...exciting! I've got more on the way, too...I hope I don't become addicted!

Thanks!
Cathy
