Ben's first stint as a ring/coin bearer :)

It was a big day for Ben last Saturday :) He was the ring and coin bearer for a very good friend of mine, Steph.  Steph is one of my very best girl friends back when I was still doing SAP work.  She's was there for me when I was "finding myself" during my Accenture days (enough said, haha!)  I'm quite glad and honored that it was on her wedding than Ben made his debut.

Bry, Yaya and I were quite nervous for him.  Days before the big day, we were already thinking of scenarios like what if he suddenly starts throwing the pillow around or sings the ABC (or worse!).  When we arrived at the church, he'd only hold the pillow for a few seconds then drop in on the floor.  We already decided that Bry will walk with Ben.  When the moment arrived, this is what happened

No fuss, no crying, no shouting.  Just straightforward walking! When I asked Bry what he told Ben, he said he just told Ben to go and give the pillow to Carlo (the groom) who was waiting in front of the altar.  My hands were shaking the whole time because I actually couldn't believe it.  Not only that, he was quite behaved the whole time.  He posed for the cameras then ate properly and danced during the reception.

Whenever Bry and I feel  overwhelmed with Ben's kakulitan, we will always look back on this day with fondness and pride :) Thanks Carlo and Steph! (playmate for Ben soon, okay? Wink!)
