    That was about the only good thing for the Reds last night. Glad to hear the wife and child are doing well. I am lazy.... does anyone know if this is their first?

    Someone else tweeted that it is their first child. Congrats to the Parras!!

    Totally selfish move by the baby. Last Thursday was a day off, as is next Thursday. Alexander should have forced his way out a week earlier, or waited a week.

    The "miracle" wears off pretty quick when you get them home for about a week. Then it becomes a full time job, without sleep.

    Yes they are miracles. Take it from someone and their spouse who could not have kids. It's not always a given that a couple can have a child or a healthy child when they want to. Everyone of us are miracles that we are here to enjoy all of this.

    I'm a chump for babies. We've raised 3 beautiful children that are succeeding at life and doing very well. They cetainly put us through the wringer at various times growing up, but that's what having kids is like (and I've got the gray hairs to prove it). But I still get amazed at newborns.

    Cardinal players are miracles? They've been lucky, but I wouldn't go as far as to call them miracles.
