Our sixth grandchild was born today!
So bright-eyed and alert already!
Professor of Literature at Patrick Henry College, the Director of the Cranach Institute at Concordia Theological Seminary, a columnist for World Magazine and TableTalk, and the author of 18 books on different facets of Christianity & Culture.
Yea! I have another great niece! She is very cute and intelligent looking. Congratulations.
Dr. Veith – Congratulations on the newest blessing to your family. We’ll catchup this summer with our sixth grandchild as well. This is the best blessing of getting older!
She is beautiful!!
Will they be calling her “Maggie Maggie?”
Beautiful! Congratulations and many blessings to you and your family!
Congratulations! and best of wishes to Mom and Dad.
Her name is beautiful. Maybe I nice short “Megs” or even “Lena.”
Magdalena was once very, very common in Afrikaner circles (I have a niece who has the same second name, but her first name is Maria). Now it is considered cumbersome and archaic, like maybe Jemima or Ernestine(?). Funny how things are different across cultures, and how they change!
Forgot to add – Magdalena was almost always shortened to Magda.
Many congratulations and blessings, Dr. Veith!
Train her up as a good solid Christian!
I like names that are not super common if they are really names, and especially if they are family names.
She is gorgeous!
Kinda looks like grandpa!
Aye, many congratulations!
Another arrow in your quiver Dr!
Congratulations! I look forward to being a grandpa for the first time this June.
God bless your new little bundle, Margaret Magdalena, and your family. She’s a darling!
Please add yet another hearty congratulations to you and your family!
She’s a beautiful baby!
This is also my children’s grandfather’s birthday (it’s my dad’s birthday).
What a blessing indeed!! Congratulations.
Margaret has bright eyes and beautiful hair. Best wishes.
Congratulations to you, Dr. Veith, and the family. What a wonderful name. Think of the monogram………………..Blessings to little Margaret and prayers for her Baptism when the time comes! Please keep us updated.
