Bonding with Filipina friends

We were invited to a birthday party of a Filipina friend's 6-yr. old son, Brandon. I deliberately didn't eat anything heavy before the party yesterday since there will be lots of food for dinner. Jeff and I baked leche flan and brought it to the party. It was a special request by my friend, Lei, who happened to enjoy leche flan along with other Filipinos, me included. I enjoyed being with Filipinas especially that we're all Bisaya. I love watching their kids play and run around the house. I think we're the only couple there who doesn't have a baby yet so we always had to answer the ultimate question, "When are you guys going to have a baby?" Well, it's great to have a small angel in our home but we have other priorities at the moment. We'll have to enjoy each other first, then have a Philippine wedding next year, then the baby definitely follows. But of course, it's always in God's time.

That's what we do here too. Bonding with Filipina friends and attending birthday parties of my friends kids though I don't have one yet. And like you, my friends are so excited of when I'm going to have one. In fact, they're saving their kids and babies clothes so when it's my time to have a little one, I don't need to buy clothes for my baby. ^_^
