Did you have a baby in 2008???

If so, you could still be entitled to the stimulus package from LAST YEAR! I just heard that you can claim it as a deduction on your taxable income on your 2008 tax return if you had a baby during 2008 and were not elligible for a higher amount because your baby wasn't born yet at the time! Did you already know about this? Are you as excited as I am?
