Baby Boom Reported in The Oregonian

Apparently Oregon joined the rest of the nation in a baby boom in 2006, according to today’s Oregonian. Last year The US saw the biggest increase in births in nearly 20 years. It’s the first time since 1971 that women are expected to have more babies than needed to replace a generation.

Oregonians top the trend with a six percent jump in births. That’s double the national average.

One reason for the trend is the large numbers of women over thirty giving birth.

You can read the whole article here and link to a list from babycenter.com of top baby names.

Interesting, huh?
