By JACK («El.IN AS LAGOS, Nigeria I'm begin-1 ning to wonder if the excitement of having a baby ever ends. Barbara’s comment to this Is that of course It doesn’t. I think maybe «he's right. We hase named our little six and a half pound bundle of p;nk, Cynthia, but we call her Cynthie, Her middle name is Ablodun (Abbey-o-du. the “u” nasalized). In the Yoruba tongue It means “one who is born at Christmastime.” Two I bo friends j have already accused us of showing partiality, but came close to giving in and agreeing that Ablodun Is a better choices than the name with the same meaning in their language, which it O-mel-ieem-waa, Many family “firsts'* have been brought about by Cynthie’s arrival. 1'ntll those elevpn days • go when she was born, my mother had never before been a grandmother.
