I'm interested in check how far people can remember their early childhood.

That's because I really can't remember anything that happened to me before I was 4 years old.

It's like if I didn't exist before that age.

People here can remember something prior to the age of 4 years old?

Anyone remember any experience at the age of 2, or at the age of 3?

I really can't remember anything...

I moved from the house I was living it at birth at age 5. I have a few vague memories from that, some of them would have to be age 3 or 4.

There was a small park near my house in the center of the subdivision, and I remember running and falling, hurting my knee, and having my brother help me home. My mother remembers this, and of course the injury wasn't nearly as bad as my memory suggests. That would be about the earliest.

My youngest memories are from the age of 4. I remember playing tee ball, baseball being my true love since a young age. And i also remember the first time i got in real trouble with my parents for misbehaving, i was also 4 years old!

Everything is pretty much a blank from the age of 10-11 on back.

It may have something to do with a car accident (it hit me at 70mph) and a few days stay at a hospital.

So I'm making up for it by being very childish in my later years.

My earliest memory is my 2nd birthday party. It's mostly of just the cake and an argument with my mom about keeping the little Pound Puppies figurines that came on it. I remember my great-grandfather's funeral when my uncle and his best friend folded up the flag when I was 2 and a half.

I do have memories from 2 and 3, several of them, but the first really good and continuous memories only started around 3 and a half to 4.

I don't really remember much earlier than when I was about 7-8.

However, my parents have told me specific stories about me when I was younger than 4 and they feel like actual memories to me now.

It's weird to think that ANYTHING could have happened to me when I was 2 years old, I will never remember.

I can have seen an alien, a ghost, or the Bigfoot, but I will never remember that...

I cannot recall my age for the specific memories I have, but I would guess they all take place between age 3 and age 5.

Interested to see how many people remember, and from what age.

I have a vague memory which I'm not sure if it's been created by a photo or actual recollection, but that is from around the age of 2-3.
I think the human mind needs to put all those experiences a side in order to function properly. It's said that a simple rejection or failure at age 1 is 10 times the feeling that you would get as an adult. Imagine carrying that memory around of you not being able to open the kitchen cabinet when you so desperately wanted to, or the first no to an icecream

My first memory was from the age of 2.

I remember rolling down the driveway on a potted plant scooter and hitting the curb on the other side. I moved from that house at 3. When I was 18 and went to visit with my mom, I pointed out our house and said there wasn't one built across the street. She confirmed. I've never seen pictures of the house either.

From 3 on up, I have pretty clear memories. I can even remember what I was wearing on certain days. And no, not school picture day.

Under a month old. Dad took a photo of me lying on a pink blanket screaming.

I found the photo, it was dated just over a month old, but my mother said it was one of the rolls of film that waited, they had to bring in a few rolls. They took lots of pictures.

What I remembered was the drop, and the sloping grass, and it was freshly mowed, really prickly and damp under the blanket, and for some reason I imagined slipping and falling off this drop, and I was screaming at my father to pick me up, and then saw the flash. I had dreams and recall of that from very early childhood. I also remember many moments in my infancy, from crawling, eating horrid tasting cardboard peas in old high chair and where they placed it, and many many moments.

I have never lost my life, but remember nearly all of it.

My oldest memories are from when I was 2-3, not that many of them though.

Most from then until about 10 are kinda hazy.

Fourteen to sixteen months old I think. I know I was one. I can remember getting my diaper changed. I can remember watching and listening to Mom and Dad talk to me and wondering what it is they were saying because I didn't understand language yet. I can remember wanting to understand and wanting to communicate like they were, like big peoples talked.

My ealiest vividest memories come from ages 2 thru 4 though. I'm 40 now.

I used to work for/with a rainman type person who could accurately describe both the room, and the people in it from when he was born, what they were wearing, and his first moments after being born. He was 39 at the time when we first met, I was 20.

The weird thing is that I have heard an audio recording of me TALKING at the age of 2, and I don't remember anything from that time!

It's amazing: I already could talk, I already could understand what my parents said, and answer their questions. But I simply can't remember anything from that time. It seems that it's not "stored in my hard drive", it was "deleted".

I don't remember anything from prior to my brother's birth, there is a 3 year difference so that has to be the earliest age that I have bits and pieces of memory.

I think I was about 5, (this isn't the only memory I can remember but it came first) I was at the KFC and of course I was distracted by the little dollar machine that gives toys, messing around the the straw dispenser, stupid stuff. I took a straw and put it in my mouth the same way you would put it in your mouth if you were going to use it to drink. I press the other end of the straw on my mothers leg and I accidentally jammed it toward the back of my throat, I choked and spit it out. After that I couldn't eat any KFC due to the pain I got from that. I was really sad
