Each month, our Church ward is giving a Genealogy Challenge. Here is February's Challenge.
Birth: I was born December 18, 1975 in Overlake Hospital, Bellevue, WA.
Name: My mom says she heard my name on a soap opera...or was it a famous person? I forget. I don't have a middle name though, and all during my childhood, I was "allowed" to pick my middle name. Stephanie--because I admired Stephanie Hacking. Brandy--because it was a "cool" name. And I'm sure there were some others. But in H.S. I finally landed on KATJA--my German class name (picked because of Katia Gordeeva). The name has stuck. When I got married, I actually legally made WAIBEL my middle name. But Katja is still there in my heart. And one time, I saw my official church records, and they had Katja as my middle name! I died laughing. No idea how that got there. I changed it.
Looks as a baby: I was bald! I was bald for a long time. And I was tiny. Only 5 lbs something. I walked early, and my mom says I looked like a doll walking, because I was so small.
Parents: My parents are Barbara Ann Paulson Waibel of Kearns, UT, and Timm Eberhart Waibel, of Grossenbehringen, Thuringen Germany.
Conditions or interesting stories about my birth: I don't know. I do know my dad brought my brothers to the window of the hospital so they could look in and see me.
Siblings: Paul Everett, and Jeffery Timm.
Who was there at the Birth: My parents and thats all.
What do they remember about my birth: Well, I hope they will leave a comment here and tell me. :)
What was my personality as a baby: Mom and Dad? Wanna answer this one?
(Heres a picture I found...I'm sure I have earlier ones, but could find this one fastest. 6 months old. So cute!)
