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.

 Geneva Rose with her proud father. Geneva appears to love to eat, sleep and poop. People have been asking where we got the name Geneva. It's not a family name. It's just a name we found and liked. We're calling her Geneva or "Eve" for short.

 Naturally we had to get her a Halloween outfit because she was a Halloween baby.

 Best baby outfit of all time. It is a typewriter and text that says "So my story begins..."
