So I was given a used T3i that has flash pop up problems and some minor wear and tear. I have never really gotten into serious picture taking, but with our first child and an upcomming move to Guam, I have decided that I really want to graduate from cell phone pictures to DSLR photos. My question is, should I stick with the T3i or go ahead and get the T7i and learn on that. Currently the only lense I have is a 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM.
I want to do landscape, portrait, and macro shooting.

T7i or 77D is worth the bump if you can afford it

I started with the T3I. Have now just bought a Canon T7I. Got a GREAT deal from Greentoe.com on my T7I! New (body) for under $700! Will match is with my Sigma 18-250 and Canon 10-18.

"I really want to graduate from cell phone pictures to DSLR photos."
Go for the T7i. Without doubt it is the one you want. Don't buy the 77D. If you want an upgrade from the excellent T7i look at the 80D.
If you really want to up your game look at the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens. This lens will really make the difference. This lens has a fast, constant aperture. That is very much more desirable that the variable, slow aperture kit lens. You can buy the Canon EOS Rebel T7i DSLR Camera as a body only. This combo is about as good as it gets in Canon photography.
