Baby boom

When ms. wobs was pregnant with the pre-wobs back in 2004, we noticed what we thought were a lot of pregnant women and new babies, not just in Eugene, but also during the month of September that we spent in New York. Babies and preggers everywhere. At the time, we chalked it up to an increased sensitivity to the "expectant new parent" demographic; that is, we wanted to see new parents, and to connect our crazy-ass experience with theirs and realize we were all normal.

Turns out, according to the recently released Statistical Abstract of the United States, there really was a baby boom in 2004:
More Americans were born in 2004 than in any years except 1960 and 1990.

I'm going to indulge my inner social scientist and gore myself on the Census data later, and then we can have all sorts of fun with a nerdy meta-statistics post.
