who was this kid?

Being married to someone is such a funny thing.  You meet, decide that you actually want to be together forever, and then start this new life.  But, what about all those years before you met?  Today I started looking through Eyre pictures and found this little guy.  So many things I recognize like how he likes to play with his ears. Or how his eyes get slightly squinty when he smiles.  Or how he gets mad when people try to feed him (just kidding, i really don’t know if he likes that or not). But there are so many things I would love ask. Like, what is that kid thinking as he he throwing a fit on his moms lap(and how is that mom still smiling)?  What is he going to do with hammer?!? What does it feel like to have your eye swollen shut?  Obviously, I’ll never know that two year old or have him answer these questions, but it sure is fun to see him and a little of his personality captured.

What a fun post Julie! I just saw that picture of Eli with the hammer the other day when I was going through these pictures and had to laugh out loud! That was taken in Oregon when he thought he was really helping to build that cabin! But that's kind of Eli's theme song don't you think? "Speak softly and carry a big hammer"! How fun to see these all together. You gotta teach me how to do these collages okay? Great post!
