In my own words, Eli spends a lot of time in his own world. He is easily distracted, but wonderfully self-entertained. He is totally low-maintenance, so long as I'm not in a hurry. He is very bright, can be caught reading books late at night or when he should be otherwise engaged, and has a clever sense of humor. He is starting to recognize his own limits too, for example he knows he shouldn't read Harry Potter books right before bed and he'll walk out of the room if a movie gets too scary. Eli has a compassionate heart, he hates to see others suffer and he hates to see other people be embarrassed or hurt. Eli is an introvert, but he has a quiet self-confidence and matter-of-fact approach to who he is, strengths and weaknesses.
He likes sports, mostly soccer, and he will spend hours sorting his football (soccer) cards. He also likes musical instruments and computer/ipad games. His favorite foods are pizza, crepes and chicken wings.
We love our thoughtful and inquisitive Eli-Pie.
