time really flies – it felt like not so long ago that we were dating and still trying to figure each other out; running around the globe on various adventures, and both working eternal hours in hk.

some things never change, some do. i love that we still love spending simple time together. some things that i love about us:

-we love to eat dark chocolate (esp. this dark choc raspberry kind and sees)
-we love eating authentic ethnic foods (we can do this forever)
-we both enjoy cooking (ok, obviously we like food!)
-we both like beach vacations or the beach in general
-we both love thailand and hawaii
-we both like traveling to new countries and discovering a new culture, people and even more food!
-we don’t like to spend lots of money on clothes or name brand items
-we do things and view our relationship as a team, not “this is your job, and this is mine only”
-when one of us is weak or feeling discouraged, the other one picks up the slack and is ready to pull extra weight.

i love you ricka!


i know this stuff doesn’t do any real good until the baby comes out (i have had a few friends’ docs guess wrong), but i keep thinking about whether #2 is a boy or a girl. back in hong kong, a lady told me that by swinging my wedding ring (tied to one of my hairs) over my hand or belly will determine the sex. (circular motion=girl; side-to-side=boy). apparently you can do this to see the sex of all your children. for me when i did it, it said i would have 2 boys and then a girl on the third one.

one time when i was in the hk library, i came across this ancient chinese chart, that is supposed to be 99% accurate in telling the sex of your baby. it says i am having a boy.   it was true for kai, but not sure about now.  i have both boy and girl symptoms, according to all the old wives tales.

so i am taking a poll.  guesses, anyone?  and for those who have children – does the chart ring true for you?

we are going public now with the news that baby #2 is on it’s way. we are excited for kai to have a sibling and look forward to all the adventures that await. we don’t know the sex yet, although a guess was made by a different doc that it is a girl. i suspect he may be right as i have had a tougher time on the nausea this time around.

we will keep everyone posted. here is an old ultrasound, as we are now on 12 weeks!  baby is due oct 13.



"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking, and don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it."
