Ozzy Monroe Allen

She’s here! Ozzy Monroe Allen was born on April 8th at 5:59 pm weighing 7 pounds 7 ounces and 19 inches long. It was a long labor, 18 hours, but I only pushed through 3 contractions before she made her debut. Ozzy was delivered by a midwife at the hospital, my first time experiencing a midwife. I was hesitant, and ended up loving it. It prolonged my labor, but made the delivery that much easier.

Sharing this experience with Jeff was more raw and real than either of us imagined. Watching Oz come out and looking over at Jeff’s reaction is one of those lasting memories. There is nothing more special than seeing one of Heavenly Father’s children enter the world.

The girls were in the waiting area with Jeff’s parents. I was so excited to see them and have our family all together for the first time. They all held her and hovered over the nurse while Ozzy was weighed taking bets on her weight. Poppy won with a guess of 7 pounds 6 ounces. Goldie seemed genuinely excited, but made sure to sit on Jeff’s lap and hug him every chance she got.

I feel good right now. Ozzy was a total angel all night and this morning through the newborn screening tests. She didn’t make a peep. Jeff and I are both hanging out on the hospital bed right now staring at her in complete awe of how perfect she is.

Thank you for all the kind words and encouragement over the last few months from the time I announced my pregnancy. It really means a lot to our family.

Jeff Allen and newborn baby girl, Ozzy
