Happy New Year!

Well, I figured it would be inappropriate for this, the first blog, of the year not to wish you (whomever actually reads this) a Happy New Year. We celebrated, in the tradition of Brian's family, by watching movies and eating snacks. Brian's Dad joined us (we didn't want him to spend it alone, since Mom & Amy are up in Dallas helping Shawnie with the new baby) and we had a lot of fun. We decided we would wave our no TV 'til 2 rule for Cameron for the night, but he is so used to not be allowed he didn't do more than glance at the screen a few times before he fell asleep halfway through the first movie. We watched Neverwas -interesting & well done, but kind of serious/thematic, & Christmas with the Kranks was watched next to lighten the mood.
I discovered that Cameron is cutting 4 teeth ( 2 on top, 2 on bottom) to add to the 4 he already has.One of the top teeth and one of the bottom teeth had already started through the gums, the other two teeth are still working on it. This discovery explains a lot about the last few weeks and Cameron's extreme moodiness. We made a lot of progress with unpacking today & Brian worked on getting the house baby safe. I am looking forward to soon not spending my whole day saying "No Cameron, you can't eat that" or "No Cameron, don't put your finger in there" or "No Cameron, don't play with that box" ; instead it will only be a quarter of the day.
We hope everyone had a great 2007 and that your 2008 will be even better!
