Changes Since Starting Longvida Curcumin - Log 2 @ 2000mgs/day

Changes Since Starting Longvida Curcumin Part 2

-Started 1500mgs/day on June 29th – week 8 of Longvida. We have been giving him the full dose at night, as recommended by professor Frautschy.

-Increased dose to 2000mgs/day July 7th – week 9 of Longvida.
Osiyyah has said several new words and phrases. He is also saying the other new words he learned so well and so clear – he just continues to get clearer.

He is saying cookie as “tookie.”

He has said “kitty” – “titty.” It has really helped that I just got two new kittens for my rabbit barn and he thoroughly enjoys seeing them. He has even said “hi kitty” and “bye kitty” when we go in and out of the barn.

He says every goat’s name as best as he can. Several of them you can make out the name of the goat, but a few you cannot.

Can say Riata’s (one of the goats) name very well – at least the first part. “Reeyah” is how he says it. It is SO cute to watch him make that “R” sound!

He said “big pig” for me the other day.

The end of week 7, he said “Tub” for the therapist. That was amazing, as he always has such trouble saying the latter part of the word.

Week 9 –

He said a lot of new words this week! Zebra, Deer, Two, and Boot!

Learned to say “Poo” instead of only knowing how to say “Pee” for whenever he had to go to the bathroom.

Week 10 & 11 –

He is consistently saying 3 and 4 word sentences all the time. A week ago he said “Yophiyyah gave me a bar” and “Riata ate my bar”. Of course it wasn’t as clear as we would speak, but we could completely understand what he was trying to say.

Today (7-28) he yelled to his sister, Ezriyah, and told her that Yophiyyah took her seat at the table. It was so cute! He was saying a sentence!

He told me a sentence the other day clear as anything, but I can’t remember for the life of me what it was he said!

Said the word “Puppy” clear as day. We got a new puppy last week, so that has helped him say that word more.

Week 12 & 13 –

Said two new words yesterday when I did speech with him – Fire & Temple. We were singing together and those two words were in the song and he said them so well.

He has started saying the word “Hi” very clear. He says it all the time when we go out to the bunny barn – “Hi kitty” and “Hi bunny.”

8-7-09 – Said two new words today – “Sock” and “Shoe.” Both are huge improvements, since he normally calls his socks and shoes and feet, “peet.”

Week of 8-16-09 (through 8-30-09) – This week he started asking “Why” almost every time you tell him something. Osiyyah says it as “I”, but in a tone that dictates a question. It is SO cute. He has *never* done this before, so this is amazing.

Whenever he does something like jumping off the couch, or skipping between chairs, or turning off & on a lightswitch, he says “at” for “Watch.” He’ll put it together with whoever’s name he is trying to show – like “Da at.” He’ll keep doing it every time he does it also. It’s so cute, as he has never done this before either!

He’s also started saying “wait” when someone is going somewhere with him. Like everytime him & I go upstairs to do speech stuff, or he comes out to the bunny barn with me, he says “ait” if I get just a step or two in front of him. It’s so hilarious! If you do it back to him, he thinks it’s the greatest thing :).

Last week (8/23) he said “Tractor.” The next day he was telling one of his sisters “Tractor here.” It came out more like “Tractor ere.” But, you could understand what he was saying!

He has been copying words when we read, sing or talk, like crazy. It’s been a lot more than normal and he’s been saying the words MUCH clearer. Very cute!

He finally learned to blow bubbles last week (8/23). I don’t know that I attribute this to the Curcumin or not though, since we have been working very hard on him being able to blow bubbles by blowing out of his mouth for the past several months.

We watched a video on Lewis & Clark a few weeks ago and ever since then Osiyyah has been walking around saying Sacagawea. His version of it is “greea.” I think he thinks it’s a fun word to say :)!
