Brian, Corrie, and Tyler Ceraolo

The Erlanger Baroness Campus announced the arrival of a baby boy, whose birthday is one for the books. 

Corrie and Brian Ceraolo of Hixson, welcomed their first baby boy into the world on Wednesday, December 12, 2012, at 12:12 p.m. Tyler Ceraolo is 20 inches long and weighs 7 pounds and 8 ounces. This is the third child for the Ceraolos. Tyler has two sisters who are four and seven years old. 

Ms. Ceraolo mentioned Tyler’s name was chosen when they were pregnant with their first child more than seven years ago until they found out they were having a girl. It wasn’t until five hours after Tyler’s birth they were astonished to find out his first and last names equal 12 letters. 

Mr. Ceraolo, a flight paramedic for Erlanger’s LIFE FORCE air medical program, is familiar with delivering babies and had the remarkable privilege to help deliver not only his three children but nine other babies while working as a paramedic. Oddly enough, Tyler is also the 12th baby he has delivered as a medical professional. 

When asked what they thought about their baby born on 12/12/12, Brian and Corrie agreed they thought it was rare. Family members and friends where excited when they found out the baby was going to be born today, but the big surprise came when the baby was born at 12:12 p.m. 

With all the number 12 references, Mr. Ceraolo said they did not think they were worthy of all the attention.  “We are just blessed to have a healthy and happy baby boy,” he said.

Roy Exum: Al Sharpton’s Wise Remarks

I’ll admit I paid little more than scant attention to the Monday funeral of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old who was shot and killed by police bullets in Ferguson, Mo., after he allegedly was involved in strong-armed robbery. There are too many tawdry details and, in my way of thinking, there is nothing under God’s sun, absolutely nothing, that gives others the right to riot, burn ... (click for more)
