Carson's birthday is Jan. 5th. It is right at the beginning of the year. He is the first birthday of the year in our family. However, all the other children's birthdays are in September, October, and November. Five birthdays in a row, just weeks apart from each other. By the time September comes,the start of birthday season at our house, Carson feels like it has been forever since his birthday. We have to remind him that his birthday really came first and everyone else had to wait forever for their birthdays to come.
