Update on Igor

Igor has finished his third week on the supplements from Neurogistics.  Week one was awesome!  Igor was Igor without the edge.  He laughed more, he was much more relaxed and didn't melt down. He was happy.

Week two and three have been different.  One day it's Igor without the edge and then the edge is back.  It's a little bit unsettling because I don't know from day to day which Igor will be showing up.  I'd really like Igor's moods and emotions to be more regulated but they told us it would take 6-8 weeks to see a noticeable difference.  Obviously something is happening because we see glimpses of the relaxed Igor.. that is not someone we have ever seen before.  So, we continue with the supplements waiting to see what each day will bring.

What are Neurotransmitters and how do they affect our kids?

I have received  many e-mails asking about Neurogistics Corporation,  Igor, the process, cost, etc.  I am happy to answer any questions! 

If you want to learn more about the science behind neurotransmitters listen to blog talk radio tomorrow and hear from Pam Machemehl Helmly, CN along with Emily Roberts, MA, LPC
Sept 21 at 2:30PM.  Here's the link:
I'll write more about Igor's progress later this week.

Two years have flown by

Two years ago we received a referral and a picture of Henry.  His shirt said "Captain Chaos".  I wondered what we were in for.  Chaos means- a state lacking order or predictability.  Henry has been predictable in many ways- he is always an early riser.  As Rob and I slumber we often are awakened just before dawn by Henry clapping and singing in his bed.  99% of the time Henry is happy and delightful.
However, he is also full of mischief, drama and whimsy which keeps me on my toes!
We love you dear Captain Chaos!  We are so grateful and honored to be your parents.

Preschool excitment

Henry was so excited to go to preschool this morning!  can you see how excited he is?
It was a bittersweet day for us as Henry will not be returning to Ms. Joya's nursery school this fall.  However, Henry loves his new preschool.  I think it will be a very good year.
