Mackenzie's room is coming along. It's actually a little more finished than in this picture taken a week or two ago but thought this picture was cute so had to post it. Andrew has finished the built in cabinetry, wainscotting, and priming. Painting is in progress and you can expect to see lots of pink soon!
Months ago, I saw the print below on etsy by IndigoRain but we didn't know if we were having a boy or girl so I waited to buy it until our little one arrived. Now that Mackenzie is here, I'm just working on purchasing it as I just love it and it should fit in well with all the pink and chocolate brown we plan to incorporate... expect to see many doggie things in her room. (We have already purchased Jasper from Spot on Square as I originally wrote about here.)

Welcome Mackenzie Wynn! Activity on the blog has been slow as we've been adjusting to life with our new daughter, Mackenzie, who is officially 17 days old today... born via c-section on June 10, 2008 - 7lbs 10oz - 22 inches.
The c-section recovery was initially more painful than I anticipated but after 4 days in the hospital, I was ready to get home despite still being in a lot of pain. We're on day 17 now and I'm feeling a lot better but my stomach is still a little raw/tender but at least it doesn't feel like any of the stitches are pulling inside anymore. I've continued to walk Owen but have had to take it easy somewhat. I'm also hoping to go for my first drive on Wednesday so we'll see how that goes. Things will continue to be a little slow around here for a while as we focus on our adorable new little girl.
After a challenging 9+ months, I'm just so thrilled that she is here safe and sound. So very thankful.

So after 2 weeks, Owen is adjusting to city living very well... he is super-stimulated by all the action on Yonge Street and at Eglinton Park and by all the dogs in our neighbourhood. It is definitely a dog neighbourhood but he hasn't had an opportunity to be off leash in quite a while so today we ventured to Sherwood Park which has an area of off leash dog trails. Owen didn't go off leash today as we were just checking it out but he REALLY enjoyed it and got to play with some pups. Sherwood Park is pretty close to our house so Owen & Anna are lucky that they'll get to go there often hopefully once baby arrives and I'm recovered and able to walk trails again. We didn't take the camera today but will next time - it is a beautiful clean woodsy area right in the city.
