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.

Why Can't Someone Unstop The Water Buildup Problem At The I-24 Cummings Highway Exit? - And Response

The engineer’s response was that the drain from ground west of the interstate runs under private land and cover over it has caused that pipe to collapse. Obviously flow still goes through, ...

Roy Exum: ‘We’ll Lose The Senate!’

A guy who I admire and respect wrote me yesterday. He had just read my story defending Bob Corker for honoring “The Code” due to his true friendship with Phil Bredesen. He is also no stranger to my vivid dislike of the Republican choice to replace Corker in the Senate. Marsha Blackburn is no match against Bredesen on any tier and it is clearly the Republican Party itself that has ... (click for more)
