Justus has this incredible uncle called crazy Uncle Jake. He is 10 years older than Justus and the two of them are remarkably alike. Jake started calling Justus “Rusty Justy” when he was around 2. Eventually we noticed that whenever we copied Jake’s nickname for Justus this gorgeous grin appeared at just the thought of his hero, Uncle Jake. It was so precious we just kept saying it and it stuck.

Hence, Rusty.

    I always wondered where “Rusty” came from… I’ve always loved the name… 🙂

      thanks, I love it too! Jon and I love nicknames and were wondering when Justus was born what kind of nickname we could give him. Nothing seemed right, but this one grew on us and suits him.

    Man I love that boy’s smile. And I love that boy! He is totally my sidekick.
