    My memory isn't that great, I only really remember unique times as opposed to specific times of my life. Many of my early memories are suppressed, I don't remember much of anything before 10. Just a few things. I remember I think I was 6, and my dad's (senior) cat passed away, and that was my first experience with death. He went in his sleep, I don't recall him ever being in pain. I remember really stupid things that happened in early childhood, like being 5 and seeing super mario 64 and being blown away, or trick or treating as a small child. I don't remember moving when I was 8, 200 miles away, and I don't remember any of my teachers or schools before 3rd grade. Very strange to me.

    Anyway, yeah. I can remember the tastes of the foods very vividly. How the green onions tasted, the chicken, the garlic, and the rice, etc. It's more so the flavors and stuff. IDK if she had alot of pasta or whatever. It's all been very sensory experiences for me before birth. I remember asking my mom what she craved during pregnancy when I was a teenager. She told me she loved Seasame chicken from the Chinese food place down the block and craved a lot of Burger King too. I didn't know this because she didn't eat Chinese food as often around me when I was a kid.

    After that, I can remember my mom first giving me soy milk formula and how it tasted. It was pretty awful tbh. She couldn't breast feed me. I clearly remember hating the taste. I also remember my moms BF feeding me chocolate chip cookies and how they would get mushy in the OJ or milk I had. This was before 2. I remember trying to say my first words at 1 1/2 but I couldn't speak well. It was very emotionally traumatic for me. I had to go to speech therapy soon after. That's where I learned how to write and I was writing full sentences to communicate to others before the age of 3. I didn't speak my first full sentence till I was 4. I lacked a lot of developmental milestones because I was born with atypical Celiac disease and it stunted my growth and brain development. English is not my first language either, it's Spanish.

    Anyway, this is a good gist of what I can remember. I don't care if it's not supported by science because they are my anecdotal experiences. There is a lot we don't know about infancy and childhood. Not having the science to back it doesn't make my experiences any less valid for me.

    I have a few really early memories and it's hard to discern when they were relative to each other. If I have to guess, I'd say my earliest memory is being in a crib, playing with a fuzzy, multicolored ball that had a bell inside it. I'd guess I was under two.

    I was a few weeks / days old - my mother was putting antiseptic on my belly button as the remnants of my umbilical button hadn't healed fully yet. I remember hearing voices and recognizing my mother's voice among them outside the room before that. I was lying on my back. I don't recall seeing any colors, but the room was rather dark.

    I described what i saw of the room (type of blinds, placement of door, window...) and the rest of the memory to my mother. She said it fits the layout of my baby room in the home i was born in - which we moved out of when i was a few months old and I have never seen a picture of. I also didn't know about the belly button healing / pushing in + reaaplying plaster thing before describing it to my mother (I couldn't really move much so I didn't see it but I recall the sensations )

    Looking at this memory there's enough things I couldn't have 'made up' and had no other way of knowing so that I suspect it's a geniune memory. I mentioned it to my biology teacher when I was about 12 but he didn't believe me.

    I have quite a few memories where I was crawling, so I suspect I must have been under 1. And alot of memories where I can compare my height to furniture that was at my parents place and couldn't have been more than 2-3. Hard to pinpoint exact age of course.

    I also remember my first flight very clearly (I was 2) - my big mission was to escape to the bathroom, which was a land of mystery and wonders. People were running after me asnd saying things like "eck, nooo" etc. while I ignored them and ran away laughing. I also got a deck of cards from the airline.

    I can't really remember much before 8-9 I'd say.

    Although I recall putting a plastic pea up my nose as a child in nursery. I also remember my mum having a green three-wheeled car which had a dodgy gear stick.

    A lot of the time though I get a feeling of uncomfortable sadness if I try to think on it too much. Not so much a longing or nostalgia, just feels like there's something there I'm not ready to deal with in some form or another.

    3 years old. It was evening; the sky was dark blue. I was in a red wagon. My parents were pulling the wagon past my home town's bakery.
