Dr. Bonnett

Eason is so blessed to have a wonderful and godly pediatrician! Dr. Luke Bonnett operates Chapin Pediatrics and is the BEST! Any friends in Cola, esp Irmo, needing a doctor for your children will do well to visit Luke. His wife Betsy, grew up in the same church and youth group as Warren and we all go to church together! She is an amazing encourager to me and they have 3 of the cutest boys. Thanks Luke & Betsy for all that you do and all of your prayers!

Home from the Hospital

Eason has been given so many precious outfits. Dad and Elaine gave him one with fish on it that he wore home from the hospital. Warren says I can dress him in these "Charleston" outfits only for the first year then Warren gets to choose his wardrobe.

Check out those cheeks!

Lizards and pelts

Ok, so the next few posts I have planned will not be in chronological order but that's all I can do these days. Also, please forgive any typos as I often type one-handed while Eason dines.

So, this past Friday I am nestled on our couch nursing Eason. Meanwhile, Murray (our Boykin spaniel) is incessently barking at the plantation shutters behind us in the dining room area. See, our cat, Aslan, is in the habit of bringing lizards into the house. Typically, the poor beasts are still alive when he brings them inside as a gift to us. This results in Murray barking at them and us trying to catch them to set them free. However, this was a particularly crafty lizard, who had found sanctuary behind the china cabinet everytime we attempted to catch him. Thus, Murray simply stood and barked in his general direction.
So, Eason's nursing, Murray's barking & Aslan enters through the cat/dog door with something in his mouth. As he walks past the couch I recognize that he is carrying the remains of a squirrel, the tail, pelt & some bones to be exact. I scream at the cat to drop it, which he does and then proceeds to look at me with this shocked expression, as if to say, "Do you not appreciate my gift to you?" All the yelling peaks Murray's curiosity enough to draw him away from the lizard. So, now I am threatening both animals with certain spankings if they get near that pile of squirrel, but I can't really do anything, because Eason is still nursing. Then, the doorbell rings (I am not making this up). It was the UPS man with a package he wouldn't just leave. So, here I am topless, animals going beserk and I have to interrupt my child from his meal, which did not make him happy. I throw on a shirt and answer the door to a way-to-cheerful UPS man, who continues to smile as I look at him and wonder if he can come remove the carnage from my house. But before I can speak, he gives me a "have a nice day" & flees back to his brown truck. I close the door, throw on plastic gloves, grab a dustpan & plastic bag, and remove the remains. Then I sprayed the floor with clorox, which my cat proceeded to lick and then roll in. Murray rreturned to barking at the lizard & after washing my gloves and hands thoroughly I returned Eason to his meal. Ah, a day in the life, "Calgon take me away!"

On October 8, 2006, at 11:17 AM the Lord delivered Eason Edward Bazemore into this world! Welcome Eason, we are so glad you are finally here! Eason weighed 7 pounds 4 ounces and was 21.5 inches long, with a full head of dark hair to boot!

Proud Papa!

Tired and swollen Momma.

Perfect Baby!

Several of our friends have blogs and we have been blessed to enjoy them. With life getting so busy as we all play adults and now many of us parents, it is often difficult to keep up with each other, but their blogs have allowed me insight into friends' daily "highs and lows" as well as a way to watch their children grow. We hope that our boig will also provide a window into our lives to our loved ones near and far. We love you all and covet your prayers as we begin this rollercoaster ride of parenthood.
