  1. Aw, how motherly and beautiful. I love how the coach outside has the door open, as if the fashionable lady just quickly stopped in from her lush social life to give the baby its needed sustenance, and she’ll rush right back out again. Kind of like today’s working mothers! (Just dressed slightly differently….) Notice the hand holding the baby’s head though; it belongs to the mother, as she is wearing the green gloves, but it looks like a scary claw!!! spooky.
