Bidlack Blankets

Alli's Blanket!!!

Every time we add a child to the family, we also add a wonderful blanket/wall hanging. My mom's AMAZING cousins have made each of our 3 girls a beautiful cross-stitched wall-hanging. I love them all and each girl will be able to have that blanket with them forever. I am so thankful we have stayed so close to my grandpa Bud's Bidlack side of the family. And a very special thank you to Kay Fackler (who mailed Alli's blanket to me just today). I know how much time it takes to make a blanket like this and I really hope you know how appreciated you are! Can't wait for you all to meet baby Alli!!! I took several pictures of Alli's new blanket and then at the end I also included a picture of Jill's Teddy Bear blanket and Lexi's Care Bear blanket. Enjoy!

Meet Allison Jalene!

She finally made her appearance! Allison Jalene Saris was born on Monday January 2, 2012 at 4:44 am. She weighed in at 7 pounds and 10 ounces and was 20 ½ inches long. Mommy and daddy were only at the hospital a mere 1 hour before she made her big debut. The OB doctor was only in the room for about 4 minutes before she decided to come out! Dr. Ellis made it just in time and we had our beautiful - but slightly blue - baby girl. She was 'blue' in the face because of bruising (she was born very quickly with only one push)!!! Things went so well that we were released from the hospital on Tuesday afternoon after only 36 hours! Mommy was glad to be home and sleep in her own bed and big sisters Jill and Lexi were VERY happy to have mommy and baby Alli home. Here are some pictures from Allison's first 3 days. Enjoy!
