He was born on the best day. I only say that it was the best day because he made it the best day. This gorgeous, sweet little baby was ours. Watching him grow has been amazing. His personality is like none I have ever seen. He loves to play, he loves to laugh, he LOVES adventure. At the age of 5, he rode on roller coasters even his older siblings wouldn’t ride on. He creates. He explores. He loves and appreciates new food. If he hears a child say he doesn’t like something and Eli hasn’t had it before, he’ll try and he usually loves it. He’s so smart and uses his hands when he talks, his expressions are so amazing and he’s thoughtful.
Eli has a soulful way about him. He’s thoughtful and he loves and he looks into your eyes when you talk to him. Sometimes you’ll be talking to him and he’ll grab your cheeks and tell you how much he loves you.
He’s also very smart.
Obviously, I think he’s amazing. But you can see for yourself. I interviewed eli last night for our annual interview (below).
