Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everyone! It's taken me awhile to blog, despite other facets of procrastination (I'm in serious avoidance of the huge pile of marking I inevitably need to finish upon my return to work in 1/2 a week), as it's already well into January 2nd and I'm only now wishing you a Happy New Year! We didn't celebrate with the first baby of the new year, even though that was the one thing I asked for for Christmas, and I'm not entirely sure we'll greet this little guy until the due date anyway (I was hopeful in that this one would come 10 days early, instead of 10 days late like Isaiah). He actually has been making me pretty uncomfortable lately, and until today gave us cause for concern because neither of the two doctors I've seen in clinic lately were able to tell if he was head down. But I had an ultrasound this afternoon to confirm the position, and he is infact turned the right way (though he must have some strong hands because all of the movement is very low).

Anyhow, besides waiting for baby and ignoring my marking, the holidays have been low-key. Thanks to my mom and Greg, Isaiah's new room is almost ready to go. Mom is at present painting coat #2 and this weekend Greg will assemble his car bed. So transitioning to childhood is going to come quickly for him, as he'll have a big boy bed and a new room that I'm hoping to arrange before the end of the weekend. And then I suppose I'd best pack a hospital bag and sort out the difference between Isaiah's stuff and stuff we'll reuse for the new baby!

So here's hoping I blog more often in 2008 - I started off well in 2007, but I tend to get too busy! Plus with our computer dilemma over the holidays, I've sort of been anti-technology! But I'll try to keep you all updated on the happenings in the Rebelo family, especially our new addition, whenever he decides to join us!

Happy to paint Isaiah's new room, Natalie. Anything for your little charmer. Plus the job seemed like a reasonable excuse for me to avoid my load of school "shizen". I'm still procrastinating by writing comments on your blog. Enough! I'm digging out the @#$! math notebooks. XO
