I'm going to be a father again
It's official (cue sound of champagne uncorking)....
My good wife Mariella is pregnant with Nino Numero Tres!
Thank you, thank you.
We ask for prayers, as Mariella is predisposed for premature delivery. As told here starting on page 20, she did serious battle during her two previous pregancies. When it comes to mothering, my wife was dubbed a prize-fighter by her OB-GYN. To which I would add marathon runner.
Our eldest daughter, Mariclare, age "thwee and a haff," is sure she's getting a baby brudder. But as with our first two babies, we're opting to wait until the day of birth to find out the sex. (Why partly unwrap a Christmas gift in July?)
Ah, a full night's sleep, we hardly knew ya!
