Crib Note – Margaret Rose Snively

Margaret Rose Snively is the new baby at the home of Amy Blair Snively and Matthew Snively in Our Town. That means that 18-month-old CeCe Snively is a big sister! Mags was born on August 26th. She was 20 and one-half inches long and weighed seven pounds, 12 ounces. Mags has light blue eyes with dark brown hair – almost black, in fact. CeCe and Mags’ grandparents are Libby and Allen Blair and Diane and David Snively. Their great-grandmothers are Roses Palmer of Jefferson City, Missouri, and Becky Hoover of Kokomo, Indiana. Mags is named in honor of her great-great grandmother, the late Margaret “Mag” Smith Dallmeyer, and her great-grandmother, Roses Palmer. CeCe and Mags have two furry “siblings,” Bergie, age five, and Tonic, age two, who are standard schnauzers. CeCe loves brushing Mags’ hair and rubbing her back.
