But you would never know it from his huge personality and his megawatt smile.

Connor looked up at me with his captivating, chocolate brown eyes and immediately asked, “Do you want to see my t-shirt?” Before I could respond, he told me in rapid succession that he was in fact wearing three t-shirts, not just one, “This is my Skylanders t-shirt, because I love to play Skylanders with my little ‘bwother’, this is my Daniel ‘Bwyan’ t-shirt, because Daniel Bwyan is my ‘vewy’ favorite Superstar, and this is the t-shirt Sheamus just gave me when he came out of the ‘wing’!”
