Katlynn at 4.5 months!!

Before/After Autism pics

So you will see Katlynns pictures and you will see a mostly happy smiling baby throughout.  There were times she took a bad picture and looked miserable, but it was probably a cold,  ear infection or some other case of some snot infested crud going through my house.

As I have said before and I will say again,  Katlynn was different from birth.  She was always a different baby. More cranky , less social, etc.  Do I think vaccines cause her injury?  Nope. I don't think they cause her autism. Do I think they may have exasperated her symptoms, yes!   Do I think she is vaccine injured... I don't really know.  I could say yes, assuming that is the cause, but I really don't know.

I wanted to share some pictures of her from birth until now and you tell me what you think. I will just grab some  random pictures and list her age below.

Audrie and Katlynn

So you see... she has always seemed like a really happy baby and has always had some issues from birth.  So really, I don't really know.

Guess who's going to General Ed Kinder!!!!!

Katlynn is going to General Ed Kindergarten.  Woo-hoo!  This is a small feat in many I am sure I will have down the road.  She will be in class with Audrie..  I am elated and scared at the same time.  Part of me wants to shelter her.  She is my baby of the bunch and I feel like she is the one I have to protect.  I know for her school is always going to be a journey with challenges.   I also know she is bright,  and strong willed and will do well.  I just have a tendency to think about all the what if's and the negatives of the future.  Shes come so far this past 15 months its like she is a different child.  I am excited to be able to watch her grow and learn and progress until a sweet, smart young girl.  Thank you so much to everyone who has helped with this process.  My husband,  my other daughters (also Katlynn's best friends),  my friends,  Katlynn's teachers and therapists.  Without you guys,  she would not be where she is today.  This has been a BIG step in a very positive direction.
