New Year, New Design and Other Changes

Have I not posted in two years?? I feel bad. Obviously, a lot happens in that amount of time.

Last year in early May, my wife and I had a daughter, whom we named Jeyli Ayane ("jay-lee eye-ah-nay") Steadham. Jeyli has Latin origins and Ayane is Japanese for "colorful sound." She's been a wonderful addition to our family, and I can't tell you how happy I am to have a daughter! Don't get me wrong, I'm extremely proud of my two sons (now 16 and 13 years old) but starting over with a baby, and a daughter -- it's really been a positive and amazing experience. The boys love their sister and we've been adjusting to our new dynamics pretty smoothly, all things considered.

Speaking of new dynamics, I figured it was about time for a change to the look for IR Haven. Maybe I'll change it again, but I'd like to explore this new look for a bit.

I've changed jobs since 2009 but I'm still doing tech geek work.

I've had numerous health issues and spent three visits in the hospital between October and December of 2011. I'm doing better now, though.

I'm going to keep this post brief and I hope there's still some IR Haven readers out there... :)
