Ahh! A little baby. I love babies. I think we all do! Aren’t they beautiful? Ah po po po! It’s beautiful to see a baby in a safe place, because you can look at the picture without worrying.
Maria wants to name the baby Mimi, Mimi Casanova, but if the baby is a girl, we will have to call her Mika. Ellen and Crissie think the baby is a boy because of the face and the features. The baby is in a rough backyard somewhere. He’s a nine-month-old boy. If he were a girl, he’d have some curls somewhere, but he’s got straight hair.
Mimi has some chocolate—a big piece. Roberta thinks she’ll take the baby! It’s beautiful! The parents are nearby. The proud father is taking a photo of the baby, and the mother is standing next to him.
Mimi is very happy. It’s in the fresh air. The baby is sitting one way and the other way. There must be something he is sitting on, with a pillow behind him and a table in front, with a bottle.
Whoever is looking after the baby, they will stop him from staring at the bottle, and give him the bottle—he hasn’t taken his eyes off it. In the picture, we can see chocolate, a boot with a sock in it, and some magazines. Crissie notices that it’s not a boot but a backpack or haversack. Mimi’s parents would pack everything in the bag and Mum would carry the baby or push him in a pushchair.
Lorraine says, that as a parent or mother, we’d make sure the baby is safe and nothing can hurt it. Mimi’s surrounded by supporting stuff and he’s comfortable. His full name is Mimi Pastoravella. Crissie thinks “Pastoravella” is his surname and perhaps it means “past time”!
