My one and only little boy celebrated the six anniversary of his birth. It was the most blessed day of our lives when we were literally given Carson. He was a miracle from the start. After trying for several years to have a child of our own, to be given Carson was the most amazing, miraculous, and life-altering moment of my life. His birth mother, an amazing woman, gave us the most precious gift possible. I am so very grateful for her gift to us.
He had his second birthday cake today. We got a cake and took it down to Richmond last Friday evening to celebrate with all the Virginia relatives. Awesome cake by the way... it was a layer of chocolate cake on the bottom and then a layer of white cake on the top. This morning I decided that I would make him a cake to have on his real birthday. I found a recipe for a "Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake" (recipe here). I honestly can say that I made my first from scratch cake today, and it was pretty darn good.He opened his gifts....the best ones of course, his MoMo and Papa came all the way from Texas for his birthday.
