LIFESPAN PAPER 2Lifespan PaperThis lifespan paper will look at my development from the prenatal period projected forward to my death. I will integrate Erik Erikson’s theory of psychosocial development as the baseline through which I reflect upon my personal growth, knowledge and experiences. Included with each developmental stage addressed will be the lyrics to a song that depicts the events described in that particular stage.Pregnancy and Prenatal DevelopmentI have no recollection of this stage of development. The information that I gathered from this stage came from my mother’s account. My mother told me that her pregnancy with me was typical, other than her being unusually large. I was supposed to be the last of the Mohicans. My mother said after I was born the doctors and the nurses started to scramble around like somethingwas going wrong. To everyone’s surprise, there was another baby hiding behind me. Five minutes after I was born, my twin brother arrived. Although surprised, my mother and father left the hospital with two healthy babies. The song I have chosen for this period of development is “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” The reason I choose this song is because it is the song that my mom says she would sing to me while she was pregnant. "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" by UnknownTwinkle, twinkle, little star,How I wonder what you are!Up above the world so high,Like a diamond in the sky.Twinkle, twinkle, little star,How I wonder what you are!When the blazing sun is gone,When he nothing shines upon,Then you show your little light,

LIFESPAN PAPER 3Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.Twinkle, twinkle, little star,How I wonder what you are!Then the traveller in the dark,Thanks you for your tiny spark,He could not see which way to go,If you did not twinkle so.Twinkle, twinkle, little star,How I wonder what you are!In the dark blue sky you keep,And often through my curtains peep,For you never shut your eye,Till the sun is in the sky.Twinkle, twinkle, little star,How I wonder what you are!As your bright and tiny spark,Lights the traveler in the dark,—Though I know not what you are,Twinkle, twinkle, little star.Twinkle, twinkle, little star,How I wonder what you are!Infancy (First 24 Months)Again, I cannot recollect any activities or memories from this stage. From my family, I am told that my brother and I were 1-2 year olds. They said that we would crawl around stealing others beverages while they were being social. I am told that I was independent and did not like for others to help me. I can believe that because I am independent now. During this stage, trust is developed. I know that my family did what they were supposed to do. I know that I have always been a daddy’s girl and know that this bond developed when I was younger. My parents fostered love, support and encouragement. I know that I successfully completed this stage. I am sure therewere some instances of mistrust, but a balance was reached to aid in reaching my potential
