We went to the zoo in the beginning of November when we had beautiful weather. I went with one of my friends and her 6 kids and had a lot of fun. Jerry did, however run away and was lost. When we finally found him, he was in the reptile house without a care in the world. I was scared but he couldn't have cared less. Jerry has started to really like going to the zoo and loves to see all the different animals. On this particular trip, he was a big fan of the white tigers and the elephants. Later that day while Jerry was taking a bath he pointed to his privates and said "Elephant!!" Apparently he recognized a similarity between the elephant trunk and his privates.

Jerry has been going poop on the potty for the last 5 months or so. I haven't done much to train him, he has just likes using the toilet. In the beginning, whenever I noticed him grunting I would put him on the toilet but he will now tell us when he needs to go. There are a few problems with this though. Whenever he wants to get out of anything he yells" poo poo on potty" repeatedly. He knows if he says this that we will stop what we are doing and put him on the toilet. He especially likes to yell " poo poo on potty" in stores, before going to bed, and during long car rides. Since he is still pretty small and young he needs our help. He is pretty good about getting his pants and diaper off, but can't get on the toilet. He is also very particular about how you help. He is very insistent that you place both of your hands on his knees. If you move your hands he yells, "knees, knees." until you put your hands back. We often tell Jerry to push otherwise he gets distracted and just sits there.

Last week Jarom was using the bathroom and Jerry went in to visit him. Jerry then proceeded to place his hand on Jarom's shoulder and looked him in the eyes and said, "push". Then Jerry did the same thing to me later that day. I don't have a picture of Jerry on the toilet but I do however have a picture of Ruby on the toilet. She was grunting while she was in the bath and I didn't want to clean that up so I put her on the toilet and she actually went poop on the potty.
I often hear Jerry say, "UH OHH." When we first put our Christmas tree up Jerry thought it would be wise to climb on in. I was in the other room with Ruby and heard a crash. I went into the living room to find Jerry under the tree. Needless to say later that day I tied the tree to the wall. I think Jerry was a bit afraid of the tree after this and did a good job leaving it alone.

To go along with the climbing theme, Jerry finds it so funny to climb into the dryer. He is not so much a fan of the washing machine because it spins too easily and has gotten hurt in it.

Train Train Jerry is obsessed with trains. He likes to put whatever he can get his hands on from chairs, toys, household goods in a line and call it a train. He is constantly moving our kitchen table chairs and requests that you sit on his train.

Jerry does a lot of funny things that make me laugh.
