Exactly one year ago today, the most miraculous thing happened to our little family: Carter Matthew Nielsen was born at 4:06 pm weighing in at 7 lbs 7 oz and measuring at 22 inches long.
Looking at his birth pictures brings on such an array of thoughts and emotions. I remember thinking that it was incomprehensible for me to think that someday he would be one year old. And now look what's happened! It's amazing how they grow and develop in a year. But yet at the same time, Matt and I saw so many of Carter's defining traits right from the beginning. They definitely come to us from Heavenly Father with a sense of who they are. Most of all on this day, I am feeling gratitude to my Heavenly Father for giving us this little Miracle baby.
