Voyages of a Babygrower: And We’re Having …

Alien Turtle: the Pensinger frontier.

These are the voyages of the Babygrower Pensinger. Her nine-month mission: to explore strange new levels of emotional instability; to seek out larger pant sizes and fried chicken; to boldly go where no Beth Pensinger has gone before.

Beth’s Log: Babydate, 21-ish weeks.

Gag every time hands brush over newly-developing outie (belly button and I have never been on speaking terms). Still haven’t mastered the art of peeing in a cup.

21-ish weeks

Definitely feeling Alien Turtle thrash about. Yesterday, found out Alien Turtle is technically a …

Just hoping she won’t be bald forever.

For those of you struggling, I’ll put it in plain terms. Jerimiah and I are having a girl. 🙂

    Wow! That is so great! She will be blessed beyond measure from the start of her journey on this earth to the finish with the two of you as parents! You are in for such a treat! Can’t wait to meet baby girl Pensinger! I’m guessing her room will be done in cute baby turtles?!!

    Well, at least the wondering is over. Now, as several of those who posted on your blog have indicated, comes the effects on you and Jerimiah – will he, three years down the road, become wrapped? Will Beth’s wish for her child NOT to be bald forever come true? Will this tiny alien turtle have to go through life with only one or two outfits, like Mrs. Potato Head? Will she have to live for several years in a room decorated with cute baby turtles – to remind her constantly of her humble start in life? Will she have to go through the remainder of her life with a name so hideous that it forever changes her personality – at least, until she is old enough to go to court to have her name changed to something unforgettable? All this and more await the Pensinger frontier!

    you are looking amazing, beth and you and jerimiah are going to love having a little girl.

  16. How wonderful! Girl clothes and girl toys and girl shoes and, well, girls are the cutest. And sweet and fun and giggly. I can’t wait to see pink pics.
