We had a fantastic Halloween this year. Jack dressed up as a monkey and trick-or-treated around our neighborhood with Steve, Pepere, Grandma Sue and me, and then again with our friends, the Mosimans. He was super cute, and he even did the monkey sounds if you asked him.
I think Jack's favorite thing about Halloween was pumpkins. We visited Randy's Vegetables a week before to pick out pumpkins. Jack loved every second of it. He walked around checking out all of the pumpkins. He kicked a few around to make sure they were good (or because he thought they looked like soccer balls, whatever). We found a family-size pumpkin and a Jack-size pumpkin. As much as Jack liked pumpkins, the train-ride at the pumpkin patch was that much more fun. He has started to recognize trains and tell us about them. And every time a train something-or-other comes up, he wants a ride. At the pumpkin patch, we took a ride.
In other big news, Jack has started using the potty. Not anything regular, but he's had a few successes, and that's pretty fun for all of us. We're not holding our breath waiting for full potty-trained, but it is exciting to start another developmental step.
