My Physical Growth

Alexis Greene

I'm just being me!

At birth, most full-term babies wiegh about 7 pounds. I weighed 3 pounds and 13 ounces. At birth, most full-term babies are 19 1/2 inches. My mother did not know how long I was becasue she got sick after my birth, but I was less than the size of a forearm. Most babies sit alone by six months; I sat alone when I was eight months old. Most babies begin to walk by thirteen months. I began to walking when I was 15 months old. I said my first word when I was 29 months. That word was dada.


The toys I liked as a preschooler were blanket, Barney, and Baby Bop. My favorite preschool books were Dr. Suess; 1 Fish, 2 Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. My parents seemed most proud when I first learned how to walk because I had to go through therapy in order to walk. My family's favorite story about me as a baby or toddler is when I learned how to crawl and walk because I had to go through months to a year of therapy to crawl. I crawled with one leg out.
