Brief Synopsis of The Puckett Family Chaos

Wow. So much has happened lately. We have all been battling one illness after another since October 1st and I am not even kidding about the date. Seriously, it’s been tough. Both kids had RSV for about 10 days – at different times of course. Once they recovered, they both got bronchitis the VERY.NEXT.WEEK. Thank goodness for my MIL. She practically lived with us for 3 weeks! Once both Brogan and Swaid were well enough to go back to school, guess what? I’ll take “Pneumonia” for $500, Alex. Yea. So I had apparently contracted something from one of my carrier monkeys that developed into pneumonia. I’m still waiting on the chest xray bill. It was great.

Also, it just came to my attention that I have not even written a blog about Beck aka “Big Swaid” in a really long time. He’s 3 months old now and is quite large. +95% in both length and weight. He outgrew newborn in 1 week and outgrew 0-3 month clothes 2 months ago. He is now sporting 3-6 month clothing and a whopping size 3 diaper. He hasn’t been weighed in about a month, but he was over 14 lbs then. If the scale doesn’t say he’s AT LEAST 16 lbs by now, then that scale would be wrong because he is big, yo! He is so stinkin’ sweet. He’s also a good eater (6-8 oz 5 or 6 times a day), GREAT sleeper (7pm – 7am, plus naps during the day) and can burp louder than most adult men (breaks the sound barrier). I’m so proud.

Oh, and I turned 30 a few weeks ago and feel surprisingly unaffected by it. I’d heard horror stories like how your metabolism quits working and your boobies run away and hide behind your knees, but tis not true, my friends. Not true at all! I feel great!

Thanksgiving was wonderful! I hope you all had a great time. We ate an embarrassing amount of food, but we gave thanks for it so it makes our gluttony totally ok. :)

I’ll post pics when I can figure out how to get them converted to jpg format after emailing them to myself from my phone. Suggestions?
