::citrus lane::

I'm not sure how I came across CITRUS LANE...but i'm so glad that i did.  What it is, is a monthly subscription service that sends out a package geared towards the age of your child.  In it contains 4-5 items for you and your child to test out.  They are a combo of full sized and travel/sample sized products.  May was our first month trying it out and we are pleasantly surprised over it.  It's $25/month for a month-to-month subscription, or you can purchase 3-, 6-, or 12-month subscriptions.  I searched the internet for a coupon and got a 6-month subscription for $100.  This includes FREE SHIPPING to Hawaii!!!  A miracle!!

Each month's package has a theme.  May's theme was: Fun in the Sun. In the package we recieved 6 different items: an iPlay Sun Protection Hat in pink, Green Toys Sand Play Set, Plum Organics Teensy Fruits in Apple, Episcencial Sunny Sunscreen Travel Size, CleanWell Disinfectant Spray, and Joyus $15 Gift Card.  After bringing home a new baby, Kaiya was extra excited that a package came for her!!  :)

 (Sorry for the blurry pics.)  Kaiya LOVED the Plum Organics Teensy Fruits so much that she told me she wanted me to order more right away.  Being that we are on Kauai...I would have to search high and low for someplace the might sell these.  So I just went ahead and ordered it from Babies R Us at the same time I ordered a stroller for Keelan.  The sheet that came with the package that includes descriptions of the items says that they included 2 packets, we received 3!  Lucky for Kaiya!

 Kaiya and her cousin, Caleb, got right to playing with the Green Toys Sand Play Set.  Even though there was no sand near them, they pretended to scoop sand and water like they were at the beach.  Along with pretending that it was a big fork. 

  I have yet to try out the sunscreen or disinfectant spray, but they are all ready and waiting to be used in my purse.  Both Kaiya and I anxiously await next month's Citrus Lane arrival!

6lbs. 9.2oz.
18.5 inches
born at 35 weeks + 2 days

Kaiya is in love with her little brother.  She is always asking to hold him, kiss him, hug him, where he is.  She is a great helper!
Keelan had a hard day the day he was born.  He spent his first two days in the nursery being watched 24/7 by a nurse.  The nurses and staff at KVMH are AMAZING.  They all took such good care of Keelan we are forever grateful.  Dr. Carolan also confirmed that they all did an amazing job.  He did not have to spend any additional days in the hospital, which is great news for a preemie.  He's a little guy...compared to his sister.  But compared to other preemies his age, he's actually kind of big.  I can't imagine him being any smaller!
He is one week old today. He spends most of the day sleeping.  He doesn't cry much (knock on wood!), and when he does cry it's such a cute scratchy little cry.  He has lots of hair as you can see, and he turns really red when he cries.  He looks just like Kaiya did when she was born...just not as chubby.  :)  I'll try to update as often as I can...being that I will be home for the next 2-3 months.
