My parenting
We cloth diaper.
I babywear :)
We ERF (Extend Rear Face!)
I believe in natural methods of dealing with my sons autism such as lavender for sleep and an amber necklace.
I don't believe in CIO.
People would describe my parenting style as attached parenting.
I had true medical reasons for not breast feeding and it killed me.
I delay solids.
We are going to start homeschooling my oldest in September.
I believe a kid needs go outside regularly to stay healthy.
We vaccinate.
Both my boys are circumsized.
I will teach them to accept everyone regardless of any differences.
I don't rush them to the doctor for every little thing.
I believe in letting them make messes you are only young once!

Me and my love

He is such an amazing boy!
He is sweet, loving caring, tough, yet soft, and thinks he is going on 20.
This is a moment that happend a while ago and sums him up perfectly. We explained to him that his brother had autism and what it was he replied "Its ok momma I will teach him" and he tries! He says words over and over to him never getting discouraged!
Soccer is his passion in life at the moment!

He is just perfect.
He has autism,porportional dwarfism, sleep apena, and possible chromosome duplication.
Even with all this he just simply amazes me.
He only says one word and thats bear.
He hasn't had any growth in a year.
I wouldn't change one thing about him even though he doesn't smile often when he does it lights up a room.
His current joy in life is water. He loves it and it just calms him.
