Bill and I went to Calgary today specifically to have a celebratory lunch with Denise, Larry and Avery at a great little restaurant called 'Big Fish'. We'll miss Denise's birthday by being away. When Larry returned to work we went home with Denise and Avery. Not one to sit still for very long I was delighted that Avery let me hold her while I read to her. This and our Skype sessions will tie me over during our Avery-less month. At 16 months old, she is constantly changing and adding new words daily!
