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: Those Who Said Nothing

I have two wonderful friends who are smart – each has a doctorate. One, a left-leaning liberal, is not bothered in the least by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos' sweeping cuts and changes to public education. “Trump will be impeached before any of her plans can take place” is the promise. My other chum so far to the right the guy needs a turn signal. “I’ve been watching this ... (click for more)
