Not such a bad week. We have already seen some improvements. (We took away Casein the week before) He is pointing, playing with toys more appropriately and has been running up to Grandma and giving her a hug when she comes in the room. I am very hopeful!!! The diet is not so hard. I will need to start cooking more meals, just a little overwhelmed this week. The supplements are the hard part for us.

  1. I did the diet for a while. There are some videos on youtube with cfgf cooking tips.
    I liked Kimmy Krocker. She did a few. My husband and I thought she would end up on foodnetwork tv.
    She use to do recipes for friends.
    Here is the link I have some of her videos on the community.
    The one I thought would be really good was on making your own playdoh cfgf.
    Anyway here is the link

    Not only are they funny she really had something special going.
