It's the Jesus Birthday (as [livejournal.com profile] justk pointed out to me). I'll be working hard to resist the devil not get arrested, betrayed or crucified in the coming year. If I can make it another year and manage at least one out of those three I should be safe. And now: off to the part-time job applications (weeeeeee).

Has it been a year already? Our time in 'Cotland flew by and was over too soon. We hated to have to bring you back but we are on to another adventure, part of which is figuring out what, exactly, it is. In the last year you've grown five inches and gained seven pounds, (we'll visit the doctor today and find out how accurate your Momma and I have been) and you've changed so much. Your always more so your own person, sometimes to our dismay, but we couldn't possibly love you any more for it either. I recently lost status as your father since apparently that honor is reserved for "Maurice" in your Beauty and the Beast fantasies. You have the most active imagination. I have ever seen, it's so involved.

You are still frighteningly charismatic and there hasn't been anyone yet who hasn't thought you were the bees knees when they met you. We've taught you some pretty good people tricks but you are on to us and with hold the awesome goods and dole out your, "I decide who lives or dies!", "I HEART DETROY!" or throwing the horns sparingly to keep us wrapped around your little finger. You loved nursery school and I can't wait to get you back into a learning place. We loved hearing about your friends: Darcy, Clark, Layla, Amy... Darcy, Clark" when we would pick you up and walk home. And later when you and your partner in crime Amy Wiltshire would rule the Two's room.

I loved taking you to the see the Lucy Story on stage , the way you were completely hypnotized by the show and the way you hid your face when you knew the wolves were going to come out of the walls. I don't know how long it will take you to own up to it but I you like to be scared, I am sure. I see a long road ahead of me filled with zomie movies and horror films, but just like I will go to share them with your mother, I will love going with you.

I am thankful that as bright and quick as you are, you are only three. I thought yesterday might make your birthday a pretty hard day for you, but mercifully, you don't quite understand. The second worst part of yesterday was explaining that your kitty won't be living with us anymore. You were upset that we were upset and couldn't understand why we couldn't just take him to another doctor after he slept. I know it that soon you will miss him, but it will take a little longer, and the blow, spread out over time, will hit you so much softer. Plus you, like all children are pretty amazingly resilient.

I am excited for our next year. We will return to "Cotland, for a crazy vistit, and considering how the party going seems to be growing I mean that more and more literally. You'll get to meet and remember all the Denver Friends™, including baby Lamb, Adelaide, the twins, Zanon, baby Ben as well as the big kids: Andrew, Liese and your Uncle Tom. We'll get to visit Utah, which–crazies aside–is one of the most beautiful deserts ever. And there is so much that is just going to be a wonderful surprise to all of us.

I love you so much little monkey I just don't know what to do with myself. This year is going to be the Awesomest™.

Love,
Your Da
