  1. First off congrats to the new parents and what a beautiful little girl they have. Favorite moment of the first half was Jim freaking out. That is definitely one of my new favorite Jim moments.

  2. Cecilia Marie Halpert – how lovely! These scenes are so true to life. Mad props to the writers and to Jenna and John!

  3. That had to be the best episode in about 3 seasons. I loved it and it was perfect! A little of everything!

  4. loved it! john was so amazing in this episode… LOVED when he was freaking out… “5-7! 5-7! 5-7!”… great. super episode, and SO exciting! AND my contest predictions were both right! yay!

  5. Beautiful baby. Beautiful name.

    We have the same middle name (:

    I loved this episode, best ever!!!

  6. Tanster, I found the funny. :)

    And yes, it was so funny I laughed and laughed and laughed some more. The whole epi was amazing…and when Jim found out he was having a daughter, the tears in his eyes were so great. Sigh. This epi was well worth the wait!

  7. Epic is the only word I can think of to describe these 2 episodes. Just… epic. I’m speechless and completely amazed. I laughed, I cried, I fist-pumped at the grundle comment… Perfection in 2 episodes. Bravo, Office cast. Bra-VO.

  8. Cutest Office ever! Jim’s reaction to the stress of becoming a new father was absolutely adorable and Pam was amazing! Definitely going to have to rewatch. Oh, and Michael is such a creep haha.

  9. I loved Dwight in this. He’s back to normal … well as normal as Dwight can be. The tag was great.

    I don’t have children so was it wrong of me to laugh when Jam found out they fed the other baby and not Cecilia?

  10. Loved the episode. So funny and true to life. And it was so incredibly funny. Well done!

  11. re Katherine:

    Yes it was. I thought the guy looked like him and so I waited for the credits and his name popped up.

  12. This was the most funniest, and best episode in a while!
    Dwight was hilarious!
    The baby mix up.

    And it’s about time Andy!

  13. I love the subtle (sexuality) setup for Dwight & Angela’s “reunion”. And even in that, they also set their downfall.


  14. oh my god, i started completely freaking out when Lee Kirk came out as the lactation consultant! amazing! such a good episode.
