tart and pleasantly bitter

So Henry was diagnosed as having autism. I am not surprised, really. So many markers BUT he was never stereotypically unaffectionate. He has always been a mama's boy. I wonder if the co-sleeping, extended breastfeeding, slinging forced closeness had any impact.

I feel bad that I hadn't pushed for the label sooner. What's weird is that the entire time I was pregnant with him, having a child with autism was my number one fear. I was so terrified. Dependency and weakness. BUT, while he is truly weird, he is so high functioning I shouldn't even be upset, so I'm not. Really, he's so sweet and
intelligent and pretty, I'm pretty sure he'll be fine.
