I find myself in complete awe of Max. Just watching him think and learn and be just amazes me. He's fascinating. I find him to be delightful to talk to and learn from. He teaches me a different way to think. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
Rachel, my NT girl (that I know of - she has some pretty intense sensory things going on), also fascinates me. She's funny and articulate and I love talking with her. It's so much fun. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

My son is the most interesting and amazing person I have ever meet in my whole life. I just watch him and think wow, he is just so wonderful.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb"><br><br>
So far he is in OT for sensory issues.

I don't know if I can say it's because she has SN. Never had a child without them so I can't compare, but Charlotte does amaze me. She learns new things all the time and just seems to sort of absorb the world at a crazy pace. She has such wonder at it all that it is fun to watch.<br><br>
Now I do watch in awe at her gross motor skills because I know how hard those are for her.

I am amazed at how different I feel with DD. She is talking right on schedule and I just dont have the stress and worry I had with DS. I can just relax and enjoy her toddlerhood. She is of course, a handful in her own right.<br><br>
DS is really becoming fun. He reminds me that there are so many different ways to look at the world. I love having funny conversations with him.

the two of my kids are so night and day -- it's really so much fun (most of the time) to be with them as they experience life. my little boy (probably ASD/aspergers) is the picture of innocence and is full of joy 90% of the time, while my little girl (nt, as far as i can figure at this stage) is only a bit over 1 and is already a hellian, with the determination of a bobcat (they seem pretty determined, right?) and is definitely not an angel but is full of love.<br><br>
they're like yin and yang. my sweet little yin and yangs.

My oldest is a sweet, funny, exasperating kid.<br><br>
Actually, that could describe all my kids <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
My older three are pretty NT, though each has their quirks.<br><br>
My oldest has always been too smart for his own good, and yet at the same time, somewhat immature for his age. He thinks he can take care of himself, he loves to cook, is uber-responsible in one sense, but then always tries to find a way to slack off. He's stubborn and frustrating one moment, then can be very sweet an easy-going the next. He takes things so seriously, and I'm constantly worried that we're going to do the wrong thing with him, but so far, he's doing pretty well despite us, lol! He's also self-conscious but that's getting better. He's come through ST pretty darn well.<br><br>
My second is in so many ways the opposite of his brother - he's a sweet but thoughtless kid who enjoys being the annoying little brother sometimes. He likes to make weird noises and climbs the doorways, is into aquatic animals. He's got some ADHD issues that we're trying to work through. He's another who can be so laid back for so long and then will get super-stubborn and freeze you out. He's the kid that could fall through cracks b/c he doesn't need our attention like the others do - but boy, when he wants it, he makes it loud and clear!<br><br>
My third, my first dd, well, she's going to take over the world, while wearing something pink and sparkley. She was a high needs baby who's now a high maintenance kid. She's cute and she knows it as well. But she's also very loving and sweet, so while half the time I think she'll be the death of me, then she'll turn around and be adorable. She is VERY stubborn, but comes by that one genetically <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> She also has a phonological disorder, but has been working so hard this year on her speech and made such improvements - people can understand her now, lol!<br><br>
My fourth is Maura, who in some ways, is my easiest child <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Maura snuggles like no other child ever did and is just this happy little calming influence on everyone. I know I am a little more over-protective of her, but then again, we all dote on her terribly - you can't help it.<br><br>
I have to state - I couldn't have picked out better siblings for Maura. They don't see what's wrong with her, even though they know she's not "normal". They understand that she needs more from me, and in return, I make sure I'm there for what they need me for. I love all my kids equally, though I find different things about them special. I can't imagine life without one of them and they all contribute to the mother I am today.

Eli is an amazing, loving, sweet little boy. Sometimes I have to remind myself that he is actually 4 and a half because he is delayed and so small..but he is so adorable and sweet..he melts my heart all the time.<br><br>
Sophie, well, she is the light of my life. She is a relief, but also a handful. I hate to call her a relief, but honestly, I was so scared until she turned 2, even though she was so different from Eli from the start. I'm so grateful she's my last child and I can enjoy her so much.<br><br>
I also have a teenager and an adult child...they are really neat people too.<br><br>
More on Eli..I enjoy him just about as much as his baby sister, but for different things..for simple joys, for the love in his eyes when he looks at me. For the inchstones, every day.

William is my crazy little guy with a great personality. He's really fun and I don't think I could love him any more if I wanted to. He is just so full of life and enthusiastic.<br><br>
Parker is my cuddly sweet baby. He is very mellow and laid back and compliments his big brother.

My two are also night an day.<br>
DD is NT and 5yo. I'm not sure if she's ever quiet. She always has something to say. Her imagination is amazing. She is the typical first child and bossy as all get out. She drives me insane but I love her with all my heart.<br><br>
DS is 3.5yo and SPD at the least and ASD at the most. He is the happiest go lucky kid around. He is always bouncing and so incredibly loving. He's always been a mama's boy and it's always made me feel so good. He told me he loved me for the first time last week and I about fainted. He hardly can 'tell' me what he wants but I always 'know' what it is. there's something incredible about the way that you can read your kid. He grunts and I know that his shirt is too tight and he wants a banana. I can't honestly say that I wouldn't' want him any different even though my rational mind tells me it would be nice if he would actually talk instead of repeating what I say.
