Breaking Dawn foreshadowing as early as New Moon?

Hey all,



It's on page 378 of New Moon, and forgive me if this has already been mentioned (I didn't see it). Feel free to delete if I'm repeating things.

It's just after the cliff diving incident and Jacob is dropping Bella home when he smells a vampire about and tries to take off.

It was Carlisle's car.

"Stop!" I cried again, louder this time, because Jacob was gunning the truck down the street.

"What?!"

"It's not Victoria. Stop, stop! I want to go back."

He stomped on the brake so hard I had to catch myself against the dashboard.

"What?" he asked again, aghast. He stared at me with horror in his eyes.

"It's Carlisle's car! It's the Cullens. I know it."

He watched dawn break across my face, and a violent tremor rocked his frame.

+++

Ok, give it to me straight. How far am I reaching here?

Do you think the above could be related to the title of the new book, even loosely? I know some people have argued that Breaking Dawn the title can't signify Bella actually turning because dawn is not generally associated with vampires and because the running theme in the titles of the previous books has all been about night. But what if, like above, Breaking Dawn is symbolic of Bella finally embracing her future as an immortal and emerging into her new life as a member of the Cullen family (by being 'renovated'), and also her willingness and happiness to do so?

What say ye on this matter?
