I think the issue is more the appropriateness of the comment. I mean, I know it was partly tongue in cheek, but it could also come off as a bit too much given that it's a picture of a few months old baby, and the other surrounding context: new father, they've been trying for a while, etc., just may have made people think, "why talk about maladjusted kids rather than just celebrate this new milestone."
Anyway, I took a couple of portraits of my youngest sister earlier this morning, trying to learn some things about manual cameras and depth of field and all that good stuff. Not sure what the results will be but may post one or two of the pics. One I'm curious about is a picture I took of her playing the piano which I exposed twice after a few seconds in between.
