Madeline Lucille Halbakken
I WAS BORN: Dec. 4, 2012, in St. Luke’s hospital in Duluth.

MY GRANDPARENTS ARE: Gary and Marge Swor of Duluth and Gilman and Judy Halbakken of St. Charles, Minn.
MY GREAT-GRANDPARENTS ARE: Curt and Marge Persons of St. Charles and the late George and Betty Swor and Lucille Halbakken.
MY PARENTS CHOSE THIS NAME BECAUSE: Madeline was a cartoon that mom watched when she was little and liked the name. Lucille is Dad’s grandmother.
PARENTS’ WISH OR ADVICE: Follow your dreams and we will be there every step of the way to support you.
SOMETHING SPECIAL: A friend of your mom told her that if you eat Skittles while you are pregnant, your baby will be born naked. I guess your mom ate too many Skittles.
