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.

Happy Birthday Gracie, your official photo shoot is coming soon. P.S. The final photo has her sporting her brand new “fake smile”.
