Just curious. When do we start forming life long memories? How early in life? 1 year, 2 years, 6 months .....??? What is the earliest memory of your life? Was just looking through some pictures of my early life. My sister sent me the album when my mom's house was finally sold and I received it about a couple of days ago. There is one picture of me as a 4-5 month old baby and she as a 10 year old. I suddenly had a feeling I remember the frock she was wearing. Called to find out if I remembered the colour of the frock right. She was too busy watching a serial. Waiting for the response, but I can bet my last penny I remember it right. I remember the frustration and fear (of falling) trying to learn to walk, the fear when someone threw me up in the air and clinging to them when they caught me. I remember toddling up to mom demanding food from her plate even after she had given me my food - and pointing specifically at the brinjal sabzi in her plate. (I never have grown out of that larval stage .....) Makes me wonder. Is it really possible to remember so far back? If so, what is the earliest one can remember? P.S. Just got a call back and my memory was pretty close. Only the shade differed slightly.
