I’m posting our Monochromatic Monday a bit later than usual, due to this morning’s big announcement. I had to squeeze in one St. Patty’s day-inspired board before next weekend, and I love how this one infused a bit of romance and whimsy into a holiday that so often centers around more campy traditions (green beer, anyone?)

But enough about that – I’m dying to spill more details about the baby!!! I’m 16 weeks today, and Adam and I couldn’t be more thrilled and excited. My first trimester wasn’t too great (nothing extreme, just your typical morning sickness/food aversion/fatigue combo), but once I hit the 12 week mark, I suddenly felt like a new woman and have been full of energy ever since. It’s been so hard to keep it a secret from you guys and talk about everything but that over the last several weeks, since the pregnancy is obviously a lot of what’s been occupying my thoughts these days. So fun to finally be able to share it with all of you, and thanks to all of you who left sweet comments and tweets this morning wishing us well! It really does mean the world. Can’t wait to share more of this journey with you guys over the next several months, and no doubt I’ll be asking all you moms out there for some advice along the way. Just a couple more weeks until we can find out the sex… and guesses?

    I think girl, too!! Then you can have pretty little tea parties with her!

    Although I must say, having a boy is really cool too! My little guy is the sweetest little boy! I couldn’t imagine life without him!! It doesn’t matter, girl or boy; you’ll be head over heels over that little person you and your husband created. Trust me!!

    On another note, I like to think I’m Irish at heart so I love this mildly festive post!

    Huge congratulations Camille!!! This is so exciting – an amazing personal journey for you and so much enjoyment for us to come. Is it wrong that I am already drooling over the thought of your baby shower, christening/welcome-to-the-world party, first birthday etc?? :D!
    All the best wishes and luck for you and Adam – I know all of your readers will feel the same! xx

      My thoughts exactly! I’m afraid all of your lovely parties will make me yearn for a child of my own!

      I wish you a healthy, happy baby, regardless of the sex. My gut feeling is that you’ll have a boy. : )

        Oh my gosh, Lesley – you’re the FIRST person who’s said boy! If it turns out to be a boy, you can totally claim that you called it… 🙂

    Congrats! Glad you survived your first trimester, I remember being utterly exhausted…I’m sure it was nice to have your energy back. Look forward to hearing more as the months go on. Felicidades Camille!!
