My Daughter, Geneva Rose, Is Here! Meet My Baby Who Arrived on Halloween

You may have noticed a major slowdown in blog content lately. It is not without good reason. The incredible news is that my first child -- baby Geneva Rose -- was born on Oct. 31, 2012. She is adorable and healthy and will grow up to play a mean bass guitar. (The last part was speculation.) Below find some images of her. Thank you for bearing with me as I get back to work and get great content up on here for you. Oh my goodness, I am a father ... holy cow.
