handsome





Will is one of the most charming kids you will ever meet. Our other children, Grace and Nick, are quiet, reserved and demure but Will is engaging, outgoing and has no problem introducing himself to new people. At the grocery store last night, he said “Hi” to no less then 10 people and by the time we had our groceries bagged and paid for he knew the cashier’s name, the bagger’s name and the lady behind us in line. They also knew his name, his sister’s name, his brother’s name, our dog’s name, our cat’s name, my name, his age, his school…you get the picture. As we were leaving, the bagger and cashier agreed that he was the cutest thing they had ever seen. The lady in line saw us in the parking lot and said, “Your son is absolutely adorable!” I don’t know if he is going in to sales or politics but he loves to talk, looks people in the eye, is always memorable and everyone adores him. I frequently tell him that he's a 'handsome dude'...every time I say that he replies back to me,
"No Mom...I a boy...not a dude!"
Boy or dude, he IS a character and we love him to pieces!
{Have a wonderful weekend, we hope to be outside a lot...Indian Summer has arrived here.}

Too funny! You can see in his eyes the joy he has for life!

Will sounds a lot like our Hannah. We've talked to people in the neighborhood we've never talked to before and the sales people at the stores know her by name. Sometimes she gives to much info :-0

I think Will and Graeme are two peas in a pod. you just described my son perfectly. I have not thought about what his adult self will chose to be in life but I am fairly certain that I am raising a "class clown". It should be interesting!

He sounds like SUCH fun to be around. Those larger than life kids may be a challenge sometimes, but - more than anything - they are blast.

Now... you were talking about an boyfriend / girlfriend. I'm all for arranged marriages. :)

You capture his personality in your pictures; his joy of life comes shining through.

Oh, I can just see you giggling in the supermarket with everyone fawning all over him and Will telling all of your life stories as you check off your list.

William is completely edible, you know!

It is fun to catch up a little with your blog Gail! I have been such a blog delinquent for months now. Life has just been too busy. Love this little post about Will. That is so Sophie too! They would really be 2 peas in a pod!!

Hope you are having a good week too!
