    7.2- Exosystem
    I have an older brother named Kevin and he was a huge factor in the ecological system for my parents. He got into anything and everything when he was a child and that made my parents baby proof the house until I was almost 7 years old. And my parents said I never really tried to get into things like he did so I guess it worked.

    6.1 - Basic Emotions
    I asked my parents what type of faces I made when I was a baby because I had no idea!! My mom told me that I made two main faces. One, when I didn't like the food I was eating and another when I went to the bathroom. They knew when I made the "I don't like this face" they had to change what they were feading me. And the"I'm going to the bathroom" face they had to change me.

When my parents got divorced, I was about 4 or 5 and I remember me and my brother running to our closet and hiding from our dad. Hoping he would not take us away. That is really the only memory I have as a child.

So me and my mom went to a class every Thursday night that taught us how to make all sort of different types of clothing. Going to that class helped me learn all the different types of sewing and stuff you need to know how to make clothes. The people in my class were very helpful because they saw I needed some extra help. I put myself in that setting so the people around me could also help.

    6.2 - Self Control
    When I was a child I had a lot of delay-of-gratification tasks. There were many such as having to read for 15 minutes before going out to play or a hard one, waiting for my dad to get home before going to the pool. I use to sit watching to door for hours waiting for him to get home. That one was the most difficult because I was not allowed to ask, "how much longer". So I sat patiently.

    8.2- School Transitions
    The hardest school transition was the "second transition" for me. I was very sheltered growing up and entering junior high school opened my mind up to so many new things. I did not, on the other hand go through a loss of self-esteem and I did not loss interest in school. I liked school more and always wanted to learn something new. Who's knows where that went.

I had never really explored other political views because I was happy with what I was and liberals made me made with all of the change in the government they wanted. Just my beliefs though.

  • 2.4 APGAR

    Nicholai's body color was pink but his feet were a little bit blue. He had a forceful cry, and he was moving around a lot. He would not stop crying, the nurse had stated that his pulse was 91. That means that he is a 8 out of 10 on the APGAR scale. Nicholai, from what I saw was fully developed and did not have any deformities from what I saw. That is his neonatal health.
