Great Past 2 Weeks!

Jonathan has been using more complex sentences this past week. It has been 4 weeks since we started giving him the herbs to kill the intestinal strep bacteria and I believe that this particular intervention has been excellent. Dr. Yasko believes that strep is the main cause of obssessive compulsive disorder (OCD). And he had a bad case of OCD. He has not been overly obsessive with anything in the past 2 weeks. No more sitting in front of the PC for hours watching Windows Media Player while listening to his favorite music CD. Or play with his Leapster for hours. In the past 2 weeks he has really opened his eyes to the world like never before, pointing things out that he never did and wanting to do things like help me with the laundry or cook with me. And he LOVES playing with his 2.6 year old sister.

This morning I told him that we had to take Vanessa to her daycare and he said "but not me Mommy, I come home with you". I was pretty shocked to hear that comment. It was well thought out.
