OMGracious! It's a BOY?! Wow! So exciting!

I totally agree with everyone else~~LOVE the expression on Brad's face! Also LOVE that we got to BE THERE with you when John Thomas was born! Thanks for sharing.

I totally BET that Emily had all the new boy bedding in the mail YESTERDAY just because she was so excited and couldn't wait until you gave birth TODAY! She's kinda crazy like that, isn't she. But I'm sooo impressed that she didn't squeal all this time that's she known. That's true friendship!

Congrats on the newest addition/super star at Snellings Stories! We can hardly wait for you to post pictures. But, we'll let you catch your breath first.

I am so excited for y'all and especially Brad. They will have such fun doing father/son stuff. Look out Libby and EJ it's a new day in the Snellings home!!! I'm so glad they have a brother... I always wanted a brother and your dad was my first one. The others are great too.... just had big shoes to fill/follow. Can't wait to meet JT!! Another FL trip. :)Love you. Aunt Chris

Congratulations!! I'm so excited for you. Your husbands face was absolutely PRICELESS!!

Oh, and you are my new hero. You seriously looked like you were just laying around, having a cup of tea, while YOU WERE PUSHING A HUMAN BEING OUT OF YOU!! Please tell me you had drugs on board. Otherwise, I quite fear there may be something wrong with you!!
