Eli is not much for words, but clearly you can see his favorite things are fishing, baseball, and weight lifting ;)  Honestly, though, Eli is SUCH a great "kid" (I call him a kid even though he's 17). He's the kind of kid that you want your kids to be friends with or your daughter to date. He reminds me a lot of Jerry in that way. I wish kids could stay little forever! 


  1. Awww! I loved this. He does seem like a very sweet guy. You're a good mom raising such a great family.

  2. I wouldn't want him for a boyfriend if I was a teenage girl, because I'd have to constantly fight off all the other teenage girls! Haha! He is a body builder! I'm wondering how much weight he's dead lifting in that picture? It shows the big bicep. I told you this before Katie...Eli is my all-time favorite boys/men's name. Good job with those two men Jerry and Katie!

  3. Totally thought the baseball outfit photo was a young Prince William. Love that he likes the good 90's Adam Sandler movies. :)


I used to publish ALL comments (even the mean ones) but I recently chose not to publish those. I always welcome constructive comments/criticism, but there is no need for unnecessary rudeness/hate. But please--I love reading what you have to say! (This comment form is super finicky, so I apologize if you're unable to comment)
