I just wanted to let AN know some great personal news. Some of you know that my wife had a miscarriage earlier this year. It was pretty earth shattering to us.
But it turns out that we got lucky enough that she got pregnant almost immediately right after the miscarriage. So Mrs. Blez will be 15 weeks tomorrow and the due date is February 10, 2010. Ironically there are already three Blezs already born on February 12. My youngest brother, my oldest brother and my niece/goddaughter. If the baby is two days late, there will be four Blezs born on February 12 which is just downright odd. On top of that, apparently fate doesn't really want me to be a big football fan because a huge amount of birthdays and wedding anniversary all happen right in the middle of the NFL playoff season.
We're still both a bit nervous about the pregnancy because the miscarriage shattered the illusion of lollipop and rainbow pregnancies. But we're just thrilled to be going through this again. I'm just so excited that I'll be having another little one calling me "Papi" before long. It's simply the proudest title I will ever have in my life. Nothing in my life will ever be as important as what I do with my children and family.
I'm very happy to share this very happy news with AN and the best group of A's fans anywhere.
