Giants first baseman Audrey Huff promised his wife, who was born on June 2, a break out game. So he hit three home runs today against St. Louis. The Dawn Jogger kept promising her good friends Terye (they were in Miss Sutow’s second grade at Hillview!) and David that grandson James Henry would be born on their birthdays. She really didn’t think it could happen – but it did.
He debuted this morning shortly after 8:00 am, weighing 7 lbs., 14 oz. and measuring 20 inches. She’d driven over to Oakland around 9:00 pm yesterday to pick up Grace, who spent the night. When shown a photo of her little brother on Facebook this morning, her succinct reply was “I don’t know what to say.”
But before she met her little brother – and housemate to stay! – she and the DJ spent a few hours at the Oakland Zoo (that’s why she has paw print on her hand) where, somewhat ironically, she became a “big girl.” That milestone was signified by the fact that she learned how to pull the stick in her airplane ride back enough that the plane “flew,” rather than circle around at ground level.
So June 2 will remain forever a date of milestones and birthdays. Meanwhile Grace is spending the last night of her life at home where she’s always ruled the roost. Tomorrow that changes forever when James comes home to stay…
