Sleeping Beauty

Today when Linlee and I got into the car at the grocery store, she said, “I want music.”  It’s the first time she’s asked me to turn on the stereo.  It’s been a good day.

I think we have a milk winner!

One of the worst parts of the GFCF diet has been denying Linlee milk.  She loves milk and we haven’t been able to find a dairy free substitute that she enjoys.  Today in my grocery store I saw that they had SO Delicious coconut milk in the dairy section.  That is the kind of ice …

2nd MB12 shot.

This morning we gave Linlee her second MB12 shot.  She will be getting them every three days for a while, so I’m not going to report on it every time, but during the beginning, I want to keep notes for myself.  Linlee was a little more anxious this time when she saw the syringe, but …

So far, so good.

So we gave Linlee the MB12 shot yesterday and my hope was that she’d be cured of her autism by today.  Ha!  (Well, a mom can dream, can’t she?) Truthfully, I really didn’t know what to expect.  It will be a few weeks before we will be able to determine if the MB12 is helping …

The MB12 Shot

This morning Linlee received her first MB12 shot.  Some statistics show that between 90 and 94 percent of parents see improvement from their autistic children who receive the shots (improved eye contact, language skills and social awareness).  So I thought we’d give it a try.  Linlee will get the shots every three days.  We have …

August

August has simply been a more “autistic-y” month for Linlee.  It’s nothing compared to last winter, but not quite as smooth as we were getting used to over the spring.  She’s rocking on the couch more often now and is on edge quite a bit.  She’s also tuning us out again.  (Not all of the …

Home Again

We are home and basking in the blessed coolness of Seattle weather.  Hood River was just too hot and that’s what I have to say about that.  The trip was not easy for Linlee.  She had a cold, so that didn’t help, but having such big changes in routine and being surrounded by so many …

Multnomah Falls

My mom’s family was busy today; biking, hiking, river rafting and wind surfing.  Rob and I took Linlee to see a huge waterfall.  (This outing was a little more our pace.)  Multnomah Falls was beautiful. This first picture cracks me up.   Linlee was so taken with the falls that she would not look at …

Hood River, OR

The bank on the left is Washington State and the bank on the right is Oregon with the Columbia Gorge in between.  (The husband in the bright red trunks and the cute little girl are mine.)  We are in Hood River, OR for a family reunion with my mom’s sibs.  So far it’s been HOT …

The GFCF Diet

Not going to look at the camera today.  I’m not sure if that’s because I screwed up her GFCF diet on Saturday, or if she’s just being obstinate.  It truly could be either.  We’ve been doing really well with Linlee’s special diet.  It’s not easy and I don’t like it, but we feel it is …
