letter to trinity: 55 months

Dear Trinity,

Another month gone by and me hardly noticing its passage. Things have been crazy for me lately. I started a temporary new job, and I've been a busy guy because of it.

Your Mom and I have taken you skating a few times this month, and you've really taken to it. There's been talk of looking into figure skating for you. I don't know if you're that into it yet, but you might someday be. Only time will tell, but for now, you do like to hold our hands and work your way from one end of the rink to the other.

You have been enjoying a lot of time with your Mom's family lately. You had a 3 day in a row sleepover at your Grandma and Grandpa's place recently. You started with staying over one night and kept deciding that you didn't want t come home just yet. We missed you a lot, (especially your Mom) but since we are hoping to go on a trip soon enough anyways, we thought it might be a good exercise. Whilst hanging out with your grandparents, you spent a great deal of time learning about how many different clothes your Aunt Becky has to wear, and that she's more than happy to let you try everything on.

You also learned that she will let you wear her makeup if you ask really nicely. I am less of a fan of that part, but you do look pretty cute.

Other things we've done this month include a trip to Toronto for some family time. We spent the night at a hotel downtown, and took you to a Disney kids performance. That was a crazy day. You fell off a bed a few hours before we were scheduled to go, and because you were acting a little strange, we took you to the emergency room to make sure you were okay before we took you anywhere. You were really good at the hospital, and we got the all clear to take you home. We figured that we didn't want to have built up taking you away and that not do it just because you hurt yourself, so we ended up going anyways.

We had a great time at the show, and because we felt guilty even though it was a total accident, we bought you all the toys you wanted from the show. We spent the night at a hotel we love, spent Saturday swimming in the pool, and later walking through the Royal Ontario Museum. You had been there with your Mom last year, and it was great to see it through your eyes myself.

We're going to plan another trip like that soon, not sure where but its nice to get away as a family. I'll let you know how the next one goes.

Love you,
