Aaron's Hyper IgM Journey

Motivational Walking

Yesterday, Aaron saw this poster on the wall and said, "is it a red train?"  He got out of bed and walked across the room to see it.  Child life made this poster to be a reward chart for him taking his medication.  We pulled the poster down and played with it.  He talked and played for 10 minutes.  I was beyond excited.  The rest of the day, he went back to laying in bed curled in a ball with Mommy holding him.

Today I tricked him into walking across the room to look out the window.  We have a view of the Ronald McDonald House and smoke comes out of the roof.  I told him that there was smoke and he thought it was smoke from a train.  He got up so fast and walked over to the window and was thrilled to see smoke.  He still thinks it is from a train.
