Willis the Entertainer

Here are some things you may or may not know about our Willis.

Willis is witty.
He is busy and energetic and loving.
He gives strong hugs and sweet kisses and doesn't hesitate to tell me he loves me.
According to him, he has a girlfriend- me.
He loves role playing games- most recently on the way home from Edmonton he insisted he be an elf and that Dan be Santa. It was a good 20 minutes of Christmas fun.
He sings non-stop. His recent favorites are "Santa Claus is coming to town", "If you're happy and you know it" and much to my dismay, the Barney theme song.
He doesn't like going to bed alone and is rather persuasive in convincing me to cuddle with him for that much longer.
He also wins the battle every time and has a sleepover in my bed whenever Daddy is working away.
He still wears a pull-up to sleep.
He can read basic colours and 3 letter words.
Willis usually only eats bread, not toasted with peanut butter and honey for breakfast.  If he were to have his way with supper it'd be sausages and perogies everyday.
His current favourite T.V show is Sonic Underground, which he went around calling Sunny, Sunny Underground for a long time and had me really confused.
He can sing the lyrics to Big Fat Bass by Britney.  I can be the treble, baby, you can be the bass.  You can be the bass.
He requested the Black Beans yesterday in the car.  Black Beans?  What?  After much coaxing, I realized he wanted the Black Eyed Peas.
He rarely is dressed around the house.  The kid loves his underwear only outfits. Like his sister who insisted that she sleep with her bathing suit, he becomes obsessed with his loves.  He still hasn't taken off his new Buzz Lightyear rain boots.  Good thing the weather has been so nice.
He has a good temper on him and often needs just to have a good cry.  I know that if I keep asking him to do something, he won't do it, but if I suggest it and or give him a 5 minute warning and then leave it at that then all works out.

He is an absolute gem and I love every minute that I get with him, rain or shine

that incredible moment that transforms you into parents

Willis has always been a jumper
