Babies & Pacquiao

I had a wonderful celebration Saturday. It began with my cousin's wonderful baby shower. She's having twins boys!! I'm sooo excited for babies to be running around! We played those baby shower games: guessing the melted chocolate in diapers, guessing how big the mommy's stomach is, and guessing what flavor is in the baby food jar, etc. Then after a struggle to get some lone balloons down from the ceiling, we went over to their house to watch the Pacquiao vs. Cotto fight. Such a good fight and major props to Cotto for taking on all 12 rounds even while his face was all puffy and bloody. The house was full of intensity after each round and it practically blew up when the fight was done. Congratulations Manny Pacquiao! He is officially the greatest boxer ever right now. It's so amazing how much pride we Filipinos have in this man. We aren't famous for a lot of things and we usually aren't taken into any kind of consideration, but Manny Pacquiao has taken this one thing and made it into something amazing for us. It's seriously something that no Filipino thought would have happened. And if you didn't read Cotto is quoted saying that Manny is one of the best boxers he's ever fought. Amazing.
