Transcript of Baby Book
My mother's pregnancy with me was a very easy one. She suffered from very little morning sickness and alternatively craved fresh fruits and really salty snacks. I was born 5 days late on December 30th. I went home from the hospital on January 1st. I was born a healthy baby with no complications.
My Age Average Age
Sit up 3 months 4-7 months
First Tooth 4 months 4-7 months
First Step 9 months 9-12 months
Potty Trained 2.5 years 28-32 months
Lost First Tooth 6 years 5-6 years
Being a daddy's girl, my first word understandably was 'Dadda'. I said this around 6 months old. My parents say nothing could make me giggle like my daddy throwing me in the air would. During one such play session, they both heard me laughing and saying Dadda. This most closely alines with Skinner's theory about language being taught because my parents say they often called themselves Mommy and Daddy so that I would pick it up as well. When I was very young, I learned all of my animal noises very quickly. However, even though I could say the names of the animals, I would always refer to them by their sound. I would say things like, "I wan meow" or just "Meow" whenever I was referring to our cat. I had a lot of trouble with pronouncing my r's. Ribbit sounded like Wibbit until 3rd grade which is later than most. I was a very vocal child and tended to progress just faster than average. I was babbling within 1 month, had lots of one word phrases like hungry, momma, dadda, meow, bark, ball, and play by around 6 months, and was already stucturing short two word sentences like I want, Give food, play meow, and I hungry by about 15 months.
Contact comfort- the feeling of pleasure or security from close physical contact. I had a blankie which I would not sleep without. This was similar to the monkeys of Harlow's observations because sometimes all my parents needed to to to stop my crying was to give me my blankie and let me wrap up in it.
Calvin thinks his mother will say no to giving him a cookie. Calvin has logically deduced that if he starts with questions which elicit more emphatic no's, by the time he reaches the cookie question, it will seem reasonable by comparison. This shows abstract thought and the ability to predict his mother's behavior which is characteristic of formal operational thought.
by Nolen Belle
My parents gave each child one name from each side of the family. Nolen is my parternal grandmother's maiden name, and Belle is my maternal great grandmother's name.
Other considered names include:
Girl- Annie Belle, Rebecca Nolen, Rachel Nolen, Rebecca Belle
Boy- Joseph Edwards to be called Jed.
I was born 9 lbs and 21 inches
I fall in the range of average for almost every category. This is most likely because of the very healthy and balanced food that my parents fed me with. The two categories that I was earlier than average are sitting up and first step. As a younger child, I most likely reached those stages faster in an effort to keep up with my older brother who would be my most frequent play mate.
To me, puberty is the curious process through which our bodies grow out of childhood and into adulthood. It involves lots of physical and mental changes. It is usually emotionally confusing and a rather awkward stage of life.
It isn't a fixed age. Everyone reaches puberty in their own time. Plus, people don't always even reach their own physical and mental puberty at the same time. Some people develop into mature individuals long before their body changes while others do the inverse. Because each experience is so individual and subjective, we can't set a universal time frame for it.
Erica was an early bloomer. Before we even reached middle school, she had already had her first period and wore 'big girl' bras. This meant the rest of the girls deferred to her as wiser and more mature, but managing a period is a lot of a responsibility for a 5th grader. As she got older, people some times called her derogatory names for being more developed. She couldn't wear the same style of bathing suits as her friends because she had more to cover up.
Physically and mentally, humans often seem to build up and then fall apart. Physically, our bodies grow and develop until about 50+ when they often then start falling apart. We reach sexual maturity between 12-14 years for males and 12-13 years for females though the average age to have a child is around 25 years old and increases with the level of education. Mentally, our brains are incredibly powerful from a very young age. Young children learn languages in record speeds. The brain continues to develop into early adulthood. At thhe end of the the human life, our mental capacities often seem to slow down again or become more susceptible to illness. Emotional maturity can't be tracked on any standard time line because it varies so much from person to person, but it is fair to say that we all continue to develop emotionally throughout all of our life's experiences.
Am I scared of aging? No and yes. I'm excited to see what opportunities life brings me, and I can't wait to have more freedom and control over my situation. Loosing control of my mind is however one of my greatest fears, and that sometimes comes with old age.
(picture of middle school me)
Tatum didn't go through puberty until much later than the rest of our friends. She stayed bean pole skinny until way late in middle school. Though this meant she didn't have to worry about periods and such, it also subjected her to being made fun of for being so flat chested. While the rest of her friends boasted of B and C cups, Tatum would remain taciturn about her own modest endowment.
Neither situation is better or worse than each other or than the average bloomers. Both types of girls get made fun of which is the real problem. In the long run, they both can grow into fully mature human beings who shouldn't be judged based of their body regardless.
I was very attached to both of my parents but was particularly clingy/bonded to my father. This naturally grows out of the love and care they gave me all of my life.
Imprininting ( according to Websters Dictionary) is a remarkable phenomenon that occurs in animals, and theoretically in humans, in the first hours of life. The newborn creature bonds to the type of animals it meets at birth and begins to pattern its behavior after them. This makes sense to explain my attachments to my parents with because they have been there my entire life, and through modeling myself after them, our similarities would only bond us further.
I was definitely a child of the Improviser Temperment. My parents hads there hands full when I was mobile because I was always getting into everything. I would burn myself if anything hot was left around because my natural instinct was to explore and touch everything around me. Though I am still very curious and inquisitive, I am now more of the Theorist Temperment with a mix of Improviser and Catalyst.
Erikson's 5th and 6th stages involve the psychosocial crisis, basic virtue, and age of Ego identigy vs. Role Confusion, Fidelity, and adolescence; Intimacy vs. Isolation, Love, and young adulthood respectively.These stages of life are so difficult because they contain some of the most dramatic changes. In the 5th stage, teens begin to create their self identity and build their self confidence. However, this is a confusing age physically as puberty is in this stage. New freedoms and hormones make this an emotionally unstable time as well. Its quite challenging to fit in with your peers and to figure out how you view yourself when you are undergoing such a transformation. In stage 6, people began to become intimate with others and perhaps form lasting commitments and bonds. This is a huge leap in emotional vulnerability and needs a strong sense of self and healthy self confidence which should have been built in the 5th stage. If those weren't established, an individual may have a harder time balancing work, relationships, and personal time which is also critical in the 6th stage. Priorities are an important focus. Here, physical growth is almost complete, and though the brain is still developing, it is growing at a decreasing rate.
