Recently, Alexandria Dionne awoke in the middle of the night to a mysterious clapping sound coming from her firstborn son’s nursery. Going to investigate, she found her husband of six years, Greg Duncan, dancing Rockette-style in front of the babe, whom they’ve nicknamed Pumpkin because of his chubby cheeks and ghoulish birth date. “My husband’s a really loud snapper,” said Mom, 36, a documentary filmmaker. In his daytime hours, Mr. Duncan, 37, presides over Verb Media, a broadcast design company. Ms. Dionne, meanwhile, might have found an apt new documentary subject in the mommy-baby yoga classes she occasionally attends near the family’s Park Slope two-bedroom. “Insane,” she said.
