Shane ... Da da .. Tar?

Ok, I can no longer keep this precious child to myself. I must share about Eason with you. I know I have not been the best about updating, but I will try and do better.

Eason is 21 months old now and I cannot believe how time is flying by. He is truly a gift from our Great God to us! We just returned from a wonderful week at Edisto with the sistas and my son LOVES the beach. (Praise the Lord!!!) By our last day on the beach he was all in the surf, getting smacked by breakers and going back for more. It made me so proud and made Warren very concerned.
As an update,
Eason's hair is out of control, feathered & dangerous, and CURLY! He has now had 4 haircuts to tame that mane, and by God' grace his curls have continued to return. The curls are from his Daddy, not me, seeing as I was bald for the first 2 years of my life. Warren on the other hand,

My and his Zani's genes most notably passed along to E his delectible cheeks. I could kiss them all day long.

Have I mentioned how much I love this precious boy! And how grateful I am to God for giving me the desires of my heart!

"Delight yourself also in the Lord,
and He shall give you the desires of your heart."

Psalm 37:4

Eason's vocabulary increases daily, which is amazing and terrifying all at the same time. He is a little ape and repeats much of what he hears and wants to be just like his Daddy.

He loves the guitar! and can play a mean air guitar. Naturally, he loves music and dancing. When he hears a "Tar" (guitar), he proclaims, "Da da ... Shane." A few weeks ago, Eason and I travelled to the edge conference at Covenant College on Lookout Mountain, Georgia (Chatanooga, TN). On the way up, we of course enjoyed the rockin sounds of Silers Bald, particularly rockin out to "Live at Town Theatre" [BC-I needed you on drums for How :)]. I explained to E that this was Daddy and Uncle Shane. I promise I mentioned Jason, Marcus & Aunt Laura, but the guitars were all he wanted to hear. When the song ended, Eason started crying. At first, I did not understand what he was fussing about, but it soon became clear...he wanted more Silers. After 1 Silers song he only wanted to hear Silers for the rest of the trip. Since then, I have heard many a request for "Shane...Da da?" I understand little man, I love Silers too.

I am so glad you've finally posted again. I LOVE those curls! Oh, I wish I saw you three more often!! I still love the Live at Town Theater jigs, too! I was listening to them the other day telling Stephen how much fun that night was. Still sad that "It Is Well" didn't make it. And who took that picture of your boys??? Love you and miss you!
