Motivation = Thomas PJs

Hi,

What motivates you to do something?  Its an interesting question and one that we are always trying to understand as it relates to Ciaran and his walking.  We feel he has many of the pieces required to walk and while we don't think he lacks the motivation to walk, we know that he will likely walk if he is motivated correctly.  So the other night while doing some practice walking I think we found the right motivation........Thomas PJs!  Yes, Ciaran is obsessed about Thomas and in particular his Thomas PJs.  So much so that he often asks to go to bed in the middle of the day so he can put them on.  The following is a video of Ciaran walking with the carrot that if he walks to me he can get his Thomas PJ bottoms :)  Lets just say that Ciaran has never walked so far, ever.  Enjoy!

In case you are wondering.... Ciaran took 19 steps and walked approx 17 feet all by himself.  Truly awesome!
