    Prenatal Development and Birth

  • Yay Me!

    My mother found out she was pregnant with me. My brother was only a little over a month old. My brother and I are 11 months apart and we are the same age for 2 weeks out of the year, because I was born before his 1st birthday. It was quite crazy for my mother to hear she was pregnant. She was in a panic.
  • Happy Birthday!

    Happy Birthday!
    My mother was at an appointment that morning for me and her doctor told her she was dilated and she needed to go straight to the hospital and he would meet her there. So my mother all worried, due to complications with her previous pregnancy heads to the hospital. She tries to push for a few hours and they decide to do a cesarian. Not too much longer, I was screaming, and perfectly healthy. 8lbs 12oz, there I was with a head full of curly brown hair and big brown eyes at 10:32 pm.

  • Psychosocial - Divorce

    My parents divorced right before my second birthday. I do not remember. All I remember is growing up with divorced parents and going to two seperate households all the time with two different sets of rules. It was really hard because my parents did not parent together and a lot of times I would find myself in the middle growing up. I always tried to not take sides.

  • Biosocial-Twin Towers

    Biosocial-Twin Towers
    I can remember being in elementary school when the news spread through the school like a raging sea. All the teachers were trying to hide what had happened and allow for the parents to tell us instead. A tragic event in history marks the first historical event I've witnessed.
  • Cognitive- Ice Skating Lessons

    Cognitive- Ice Skating Lessons
    I started Ice skating when I was around 8 years old. I had quit after my first recital due to complications with my ankles. Later I found out I have severe pes cavus bilaterally. This is an ankle disorder that has to do with a high arch or instep in bone structure. So when weight is beared on the feet themselves, they do not cushion properly. This is hereditary.
  • cognitive- Graduated Elementary School!

    cognitive- Graduated Elementary School!
    This was a fun day for me filled with games and food. I was upset to see all my friends head off to different middle schools. I lost many friends this year through loss of communication and went on to make new ones in middle school. This is where most of my friends today are from. To this day, I still have the t-shirt with the Farrand Fox on it and all my class signatures.
  • Psychosocial -Middle School- Game Changer

    Psychosocial -Middle School- Game Changer
    This is when I was introduced to the world of what you look like matters. This is when everyone is going through the awkward stages so everyone attempts to look the best. I made a lot of friends. I think that I put on an act a lot through these middle school years. I was embarrassed about where I lived. This is where some bullying occurred and I did all I could to fit in. Middle School was a game changer, to say the least.
