This little boy melts my heart. Three years ago I got to be there when he was born and can't believe he is so old already. He is so excited for the baby, he calls him Rudio. Every time he sees me wants to kiss my belly and then tell Rudio to come out and play. When his mom asked him last week what he wanted for his birthday he said "a big present for baby Rudio". He will be the greatest cousin.
In the spirit of full disclosure, I do have to say that he can be a total rascal. He is mischievous and smart and can get into more trouble, more quickly, than almost any kid I know. He is definitely all boy but with a face like that, it's hard not to just laugh at his antics.
