Static block  java

I wrote up this little scenario.  What would be the sequence of the methods called.  

I think the order will be:
1) static block,
2) the constructor
3) constructor of Blah.

The 3rd is trivial, but are 1 and 2 in correct order?  - This is granted that another class would call the "method" function of TestClass.

public class TestClass extends Blah{


public void method(){
 TestClass baa = new TestClass();

static blockOfCode{
