Emshwiller, Carol. "Baby." F&SF Feb. 1958.

The tragic love story of the coming of age of Christopher John Correy, "Baby number 2, family PR 1-54-238, overseer Rob 1026," a young man living on a post-holocaust Earth where aging robots run a decaying mechanized world—a world where appeals to the gods of the machine and politeness are no longer efficacious.
