Dearest Elizabeth, how can you be nine! Surely it can't have been nine years ago that you arrived in the world to brighten our lives with your smile. You are doing so well at school and it has been wonderful to watch you growing in confidence with your work. You are a wonderful big sister to Emma and Alex and you are such a big help to Mummy at home. We are so very proud of the young lady you are becoming.
Happy 9th Birthday Lily!
We love you very much.
