Once the deed was done, we made a stop at the post office...where we ran into my aunt...who was most thrilled to meet my granddaughter...who carries her name. Maelyn's official name is Magdelyn...as is her great great Aunt Maggie's. And if you know my Aunt Maggie...you know she is usually wearing something yellow...because it just happens to be her favorite colour. And wouldn't you know it...Baby Maelyn was also wearing her favorite yellow hat.
They both agreed to pose for a photo...in the drug store post office...right next to the toilet tissue. And so the first meeting of the two Magdelyn's will be recorded right here...on My Front Porch. When we parted ways, Heidi said she had no idea my aunt's real name was Magdelyn when she named her daughter...but she is so glad it turned out that way!
Oh...and did you happen to notice Maelyn's angel wings in the photo...how sweet is that?
I had no plans to do another post about names today...but the chance meeting of the only two Magdelyn's that I know...just couldn't go unrecorded. I'm done with my name game for now!
Have a wonderful weekend...
