Dear Aura and Michael congratulations....enjoy every single moment with your darling daughter. This brings back such happy memories of when our darling Hannah was born, looking just as gorgeous as your beautiful Elodie with deep black hair like her baba and blue eyes like mine. She's in her final year at University now and the days inbetween have flown by so quickly like speedy little birds. Never apologies for time spent with your gorgeous Elodie, they are very very precious.
