    Prenatal Development and Birth

    This timespan covers my life through prenatal development up until the day I was born.
  • Awaiting Me!

    My parents were Khosrow Kordbegli and Patricia Devlin Ways Kordbegli. My mother had a daughter, my sister Melissa Ways, from her previous marriage and together my mom and dad had my brother Matt Kordbegli. My dad was an electrical engineer and my mom was a phone tech engineer for Bell Atlantic (now known as Verizon).
  • Prenatal

    My mom had two children before me and knew how to take care of herself while she was pregnant. She used to drink, but never took a sip while she was pregnant with me or my siblings. I was delivered vaginally at 8 pounds, 3 ounces.

    This is the day I was born!
  • Period: to


    This timespan covers the first two years of my life. I will 1 and two years old.
  • Sleep Interrupted-Biosocial

    Newborns generally sleep about 17 hours a day. About 80% of Children slept through the night. I was part of the 20% who did not. This was caused by a disease I was born with called Acid Reflux Diesease. I had to spend a couple of weeks at the hospital after birth before reutrning home and when I did return home, I had a special blanket that tied to crib to elevate me so that if I threw up, I would not choke. The acid caused me to have trouble sleeping at night and most nights I would cry.
  • Grasp Onto Your Seats, It's Gonna be a Bumpy Ride!-Cognitive

    This is a cognitive event during the first year of my life. Between birth and six weeks, I developed simple reflexes. Such reflexes helped me to survive and grow. Those relfexes are sucking (which was neccesary for breastfeeding), following moving objects with my eyes (like watching my mom walk out of the room), and grasping (like holding onto things, which later will help me learn to stand).
  • I am so mad!-Psychosocial

    Between 4 and 9 months, I learned to express myself in a new way. I learned how to get mad! I might have made mean noises and raised my voice whenever I got frustrated.
  • Ah! Mommy!-Psychosocial

    Between 9 and 14 months I have become a guarded infant. No longer do I smile at strangers who smile at me. I have learned fear. During these months, whenever I see someone I don't recognize, I get scared and cling to my mom like a baby monkey latches on to their mother.
  • What a Big Brain for such a Tiny head!-Biosocial

    By age two, my brain was 75% of the size it would be when I turned into an adult. That's a lot of brain!
  • Call Me Picasso Cognitive

    This event starts at 18 months and gradually develops through 24 months. In this event, I began to have insight and creativity. Such as coloring a picture with more than one color. This event is known as Internilization of Schemes.
  • Period: to


    This timespan will cover my life through the play years. I will be ages 3,4, and 5. I call it my preschool years because it covers my life as I went through preschool up until I was old enough to go to Kindgergaren.
  • My name is Princess Megan-Psychosocial

    At three years old, I began to participate in Sociodramatic play. I would pretend I was a princess and the boy in the neighborhood were the super heros who had to rescue me. I also liked to pretend I was a vetrinarian. I loved animals.
  • Mommy, why are you bald?

    My mother was diagnosed sometime in October when I was three years old. She was undergoing Chemo, and had lost all of her hair. We had gone out to eat one day and a man at the table next to us was laughing at my mom's bald head. I stood up and yelled at him "don't you laugh at my mommy!" and he went back to eating.
  • Walking Tall-Biosocial

    During the play years, my posture and balance improve, helping my motor coordination. Now I can start to put beads on a string because my motor skills are improving.

    I'm a School Kid Now!

    This timespan covers my life from ages 6 through 11. It shows my experiences from Kindergarden through elementary school.
  • Are you a boy or a girl?-Cognitive

    When I was younger, i refused to let my mom brush my hair. She said "If i can't brush it, were cutting it". Needless to say, my hair was very short. One day when I was playing outsisde a little boy asked me to be his friend, I accepted and then he said "are you a boy or a girl?" He was focusing on my appearance. He thought that because I had short hair, I must be a boy.
  • Which of these doesn't belong?-Cognitive

    In order to enter kindergarden, a child mus be able to engage in classification. Classification is when something is grouped according to features. To get into kindergarden, I had to seperate bingo chips by color. There were three colors; red, yellow, and blue. Each color had to go into a seperate container.
  • I'm on the Blue Team!-Biosocial

    During the school years, hand eye-coordination, balance, judgement or movement, and reaction time are all developing. These developments helped me improve my skills while playing sports in gym class. I remember my gym teacher, Mr. fraser, helping me to improve all these skills. My favorite game was ball catch. We use funnels to throw and catch wiffle balls.
  • I hope I get a good grade!-Psychosocial

    industry vs. inferority. This battle is one of my self worth as judged by my performance. In school I felt good grades meant I was a good child, but bad grades meant I was inferior to all the kids who could do good in certain subjects that I couldn't.

  • Call Me Wonder Woman!-Cognitive

    In this stage my brain has developed a unique sense of egocentrism. I believe that I am invincible. I remember my mom telling me not to cross streets where there were no traffic lights or cross walks. I thought that nothing could happen and I would be fine. That theory changed when my friend was killed crossing the street. I realized how mortal I really was.
  • Guess Who?-Psychosocial

    The process of discovering who you are is easier for some than others. During Adolescence, humans seek to find their identity. I remember changing my style of clothing and hair styles, fitting into different groups of friends, and different behaviors I displayed. It was a struggle for me to find who I was but I believe that it is an on going process. I will never fully know who I am until I am dead.

  • Chips or Carrots?-Biosocial

    As emerging an emerging adult, I am more concerned with my health habits than I was when I was an adolescent and child. I am making wiser decisions about what I eat and how much I exercise.
  • Hallelujah!-Cognitive

    I am and a Christian and becoming an adult has greatly influenced my walk with God. The more I understand morals and ethics, the more I realize what my true convictions are. For instance, I do not have the internet so I go to the library and my church to complete homework. My neighbors have wireless internet that I could use but I do not use it because I believe it is stealing. If I am not paying for it, then I should not be using it. My church and the library however, are paid for through my ti
  • I Am Megan Kordbegli

    As an emerging adult, my identity is becoming more honed in and I am finding myself through many outlets. My religion helps shape my values, my hobbies help me find my talents, and my raised security gives me confidence to try new things. In high school, I was very insecure an refused to try something new because I was afraid that people would dislike me if I failed, or disliked the new thing. Today, I will try things more confidently.

Other relationships such as friendships and my siblings will be gratifying at this stage of my life.

    This section covers my death/
  • My Death

    My death can be caused by many different things. It can be cognitive like dementia, or biosocial just due to old age. It can even be psychosocial, believing that I have nothing left on earth and convincing myself it's time to go. However it happens, when it's my time, my Lord will call me home.
