It is unbelievable that Ellie Simone is 5 years old. To be honest it was difficult looking back through all these photographs, indeed we have covered a lot of ground since she was born. I’ve said multiple times in the past that Ellie is unique. Strong-willed, stubborn, full of feeling. The adjustments of life can be quite difficult for her. And waking up in the morning. We’ve had multiple stages where everyone in the house walks on egg shells within her presence. What a girl. […] Continue reading →
