Sonshine Has A Diagnosis

We took Sonshine to the same clinic where we took Bagel for his Asperger's diagnosis. We thought Sonshine might have ADHD, but he too has Asperger's Syndrome. In fact he scored higher on the ADOS than Bagel did.

So now we have two with Asperger's Syndrome. And I'm worried about Knuckles as well. He won't lay on his back, he doesn't like standing up, and he's obsessed with little wheeled things. There are other indicators, but he reminds me of Bagel at that age, only not as intense (he's not, for example, pinching me till I bruise when he nurses). But he's only a year old, and you usually have to wait longer than that before developmental delays become apparent.
