Nolen's First Year

I wanted to put together a video that showed Nolen as a himself.  A typical developing infant.  He has great eye contact and hits every single milestone right on time or even ahead of most infants his age.  Nolen was diagnosed with Autism February 2013.  This has been the most heart breaking thing for me as a parent.  Living through this has been extremely challenging. 
This is one way I have found to cope. 
Enjoy the day to day little things that bring happiness in my life.
As a note, this is a LONG video.  I put together many images of his first year and ALL of the videos I took before he turned 1.  This is my place to document regressive autism.
