I have a confession.

I've been sick, exhausted, and barely keeping up with our daily routine. But... I shouldn't complain too much.

There is a good reason for it: We have a new Ricefield baby on the way.

Yep. I'm pregnant and just getting over the first trimester. Looking forward to having a bit more energy, but it doesn't like it's getting better any time soon. I'm not going to lie, pregnancy doesn't make me glow or thrive. It makes me sick. But yes, the end result is more than worth it, so all's good.

We're due in August by the way.

Other than that... We had a good valentine's day with pink cupcakes and origami boxes with treats for N.'s friends and teachers.

Ok, hit me with your good news.


  1. Ohhh, Süße ( translation: Ohh sweetie) i wish i could be there to help you! I know exactly how you feel. I think, it will be a girl... in Germany, there is a saying: "Boys give, Girls take..." I can confirm that...
    But "Ganbatte" ( Japanese) Think of you all the time...

  3. Congratulations!! Fabulous news for you! I hope the sickness passes quickly.

  4. A NEW BABY?? Oh that's so exciting! I'm thrilled for you. I'm the baby-holder among my friends and am always hoping they're tired so I get a chance. Little ones in general are so hilarious and precious. I'm past the baby stage now and I miss it. But I'm sorry you're feeling sick and hope the second trimester is kinder to you.
