It might be that Della is not so much interested in babies as in using baby as a slang term. “Hey, baby!” When Steve dropped Della off at day care this morning, he told Rita, “She’s really into babies these days.” Rita said, “Yeah, she calls all the kids baby.”

She decided to try it out herself.
A developing ritual: Della likes to have a few minutes alone in the car at the end of the day. I don’t blame her! We are all up in her business, most times.
