12 (who?)
If so, I have a question:

I thought it was pretty common, but I've only met two other people who remember, including my mum. I remember a lot of things from when I was a baby, and from about two year old an onwards, everything is as clear as if it were yesterday.

My question is: Before you could recognize yourself in a mirror, what did you imagine yourself to look like? I thought I was a weird grey toad thing in a tuxedo with massive lips and mickey mouse gloves. But I would like to know what other people thought.

More art is coming, in a bit of a block right now unfortunately.

That's wild. I would think you're trolling us but I'm not so sure.

My earliest memory is right around 2 years of age when my mom brought me with her to visit her dying friend. I don't know if I remember anything from before that other than various sensations of being buckled into a carseat or fed. I don't recall if I had any ideas of my personal appearance or not.

Hmm you know its funny, I never really thought of my appearance as a kid. I had other things to think about. Like pooh :v

My earliest memory is from when I was about three. I was upset we were moving and all my poohs were going to be packed up.

I don't know if it was just a perceived memory from a picture, but I think i remember the day i was brought home from the hospital (or a few days after) - my mom and dad took me all bundled up in blankets and things in a car and got out down the back lane and into the forest to look at the creek. I remember the white snow everywhere and the cold feeling on my face when it landed on me, and the contrasting feeling of warmth in the blankets.

:shrug: That's about it.

I remember little pieces here and there... I vaguely remember feeling like an animal of some sort(Which could explain the fursona now), usually dog. About 4yrs old I switched to cat, because I thought they were the most badass animals out there, I would beg my Granny to make me tuna salad, and she would scratch my back as I went to sleep. About 5yrs, I remember being ultra flexible, trying to stretch like a cat, and later, I became a gymnast for about 3 years, when I was 8, they took me out because "I didn't show any interest", so I became more active at home, and slipped back into the dog fursona I had in my mind.

TL;DR, kinda, I thought up until I was 3 or 4 I was some kind of Canine. c:

I've always had that feeling like I remember how my mom used to go out with me in my pushchair but I am not sure whether it's my wierd imagination or my actual memory XD

My first memory was when I was about 1 year old; I could crawl but not walk. Somehow I was loose upstairs on the landing and I distinctly remember imagining that I was a bouncy ball. So I "bounced" down the stairs. I was fine and mum found me at the bottom of the stairs looking a bit dazed. That was quite clear. I have vague memories of being changed and the living room of that house (we moved when I turned three). After that my next clear memory was my 4th birthday when I figured out how birthdays work i.e; that they're once a year and you get a year older each time. Genius huh?

I can remember a few events clear as day! Not seeing myself though - mainly just a few events. One about my toys - they being put on a shelf so I would take my nap, my sisters jumping on their beds and another wanting my bottle.

It is weird, I tell people that I even remember that much and they think me crazy :). Glad I am not the only one. :D

I don't remember being a BABY baby but I remember waking up when I was 3. Like, waking up in the morning and I didn't remember anything beforehand, just black, and thinking that it was strange because I knew what everything was but I didn't remember it. I don't remember anything before then :c
