Zachary Alexander James

Well, it has been a very busy 4 months in the Carter home.  We welcomed Zachary into our lives on June 3 and we are happy to say that he was born healthy and happy in Yorkton, Saskatchewan.  Zachary was 9 lbs 3 oz and 22 1/2 inches long.  At 4 months he is 14 lbs 6 oz and 26 inches long.

Life has changes a lot for us and we couldn’t be happier. During the first month, he slept through the night and cat-napped during the day – that has changed with the introduction of 2 bottom teeth at 3 1/2 months.  Our little guy is growing quickly and is constantly on the move, making sure Mom is on her toes.  He has an intense gaze and has inherited the Nickel’s blue eyes.

We have spent time at the lake and in Brandon with the Carter family and visited with Grandma Nickel and Great Grandma Nickel in Winnipeg.  Our future plans include a flight to Iceland to see Uncle David, Aunt Elisabet, cousins Harold and Styrmir.

We are looking forward to spending time with family and friends during Thanksgiving and Christmas. I hope to update our blog as often as possible, so please check back often.

Wishing you all the best,
Kirsten, Kevin & Zachary



  1. Dear Kirsten Kevin and Zachary. There is a picture on your website – presumably one you took yourself, of the location in Iceland of the last execution – of Agnes Magnusdottir. I am writing to ask permission to use this image in a video I am editing that features an interview with Hannah Kent, the author of Burial Rites, a book about the trial and death of Agnes Magnusdottir. Would you allow me to use the image on this page?

    I appreciate your consideration. It is a beautiful photo.
