I don’t know why or when exactly I started calling him Mr. Dude. There is just something about him that calls for the title, “Mr.” Even as a little kid, he can get into serious-sounding discussions. His tone and demeanor can be so adult-like, it can be a challenge to keep a straight face.
I really believe he is an engineer-in-training. When he was about 12 months old he started to unscrew the legs off of the kitchen table. He has a scientific mind and loves to see how things work.
This kid can melt my heart with his sweet grin and sparkling brown eyes. He is very cuddly, too. It is hard to stay mad at him.
