Today I fell in love with a wonderful girl. And today was the most perfect day of my life. Allison gave birth to a 8.5lb 8oz 20 1/2in beautiful baby girl named Eva Grace. Eva Grace came rocketing into the world at lightening speed. At 9:30am Allison’s water broke. We were in the car by 9:35am and at the hospital by 9:50am. After about 1 hour and 40 minutes of prep and 20 minutes of pushing Eva Grace came into the world at 12:04pm. Eva Grace is a beautiful girl, so, so beautiful and with a gorgeous full head of hair.

Mother and baby are doing fantastic. And Daddy is hanging in. I took a bunch of photos and we had many visitors. I will upload them tomorrow as I am on dial up and have no way to upload them directly. It has taken me about an hour just to get the one photo up. More tomorrow though. She is beautiful.

    Oh, the wonder! Congratulations to Mom and Dad – and to beautiful baby Eva Grace for finding such a fine family to plop into the middle of. Oh, how I envy you all the journey ahead! How long will she sit still for a photo a day, Drew? At least until her teens, surely! I’m looking forward to watching her as she discovers the world around her.

    Eva is going to be a Red Sox fan. Seriously. I know she wasn’t supposed to arrive until the 20th, but then she heard that the ALCS starts on Friday. So, she said, “I WANNA COME OUT…NOW!”

    No doubt she’ll get much coaching from “Auntie Mo” in the Red Sox fan department…LOL!

    She is beautiful, and so is the name you chose for her. Congratulations, and glad to hear that everyone is doing well.

  14. Drew!!!! Congratulations, to you and your wife, that is truly amazing. I wish you and your family the best.

    It is funny, when she is with me she looks more like me, when she is with Allison she looks more like her. She is a love all right.

  29. Drew says:

    Thanks Rasemom, she is doing so very well and we are just so excited to have her home with us.

  30. Drew says:

    Hi skeet, I think that the next week or so is going to be all about EVA on Photo-a-Day and then I’ll have to go to some other willing subject, But Eva is going to know the camera, learn about the camera and love the camera.

    I appreciate the nice sentiments, Eva is doing wonderful and we are very excited that she is her with us and decided to plop down in our family.

  31. Drew says:

    Thanks Kathy and Jimmy. I appreciate that you stopped by to leave us a nice message. Thanks so much.

  32. Drew says:

    Hey Mo,

    We are looking forward to you coming to visit and to meet our sweet girl. I’m going through all my e-mails and comments and responding to them all. So soon I will get to the one about you coming to MA in Nov. Thanks Mo.

  33. Drew says:

    Hi Jessi, thanks for stopping over to leave a message.

  34. Drew says:

    Hi Tricia,
    Eva is doing wonderful. She’s eating regularly and everything else is normal. she really enjoys spending time with mom and listen to dad as he reads her stories.

  35. Drew says:

    Thanks Chrsitine, between Auntie Mo and Uncle Nate Eva will be Red Sox through and through. She already has some cute Red Sox gear that we will dress her in for the World Series games.

  36. Drew says:

    Thanks very much Scott, We are very very excited indeed.

  37. Drew says:


    Yeah because I was holding one of Allison’s legs it was a bit tough to type but I still managed to blog post minutes after the birth through Radar.Net. Now, if I only had a better camera phone.

  38. Drew says:

    Thanks for thinking of me Daddy P. I got some sleep over the past few days and am now pretty awake and rested.

    Congratulations! She is beautiful.

    Amazing how fast she got you wrapped around her little finger, isn’t it?

  50. Drew says:

    Thank you Anna, It was a very quick wrap. She had me from the moment she arrived.

  51. […] Take, for instance, Drew (from BenSpark) and his wife recently welcomed their newborn baby girl, Eva Grace, to their family. When the baby was born, Drew notified some of his fellow web friends about it […]
