New Baby Boom

Is There a Baby Boom Under Way?

Everywhere you go, it seems wee ones are on the loose. Airports are full of families trekking their broods to worldly destinations. Hollywood is abuzz with celebabies and more people have multiples. It comes as no surprise that 2007 broke the US records with 4,315,000 births. Besting the year 1957 by 15,000 births. Demographer Stephanie Ventura from the National Center for Health Statistics said:

According to our provisional data, we had the highest number of births ever reported in 2007. . . . What this really reflects is that the population has grown so much in the United States, so you naturally expect more births. . . . It's hard to call this a baby boom at this point.

While the percentage of women having babies may not have surpassed those of the "Baby Boom" years, it certainly seems that one is on the way. Do you think we're coming up on the next big baby boom?

So many people I know are pregnant, it sure feels like another baby boom is on the way (at least in my neck of the woods). There's definitely a celebrity baby boom going on, at least.

It certainly feels like there is a baby boom. It seems every time I turn around another of my old high school friends or someone else is getting pregnant. I wish I was part of the baby boom ;) :P
