Primates and puzzles

Overheard in the car:
Jordan: A big giant gorilla!
Chris: Big giant gorillas don't exist...only in New York.

Christian has gotten to the age where he's started telling jokes. It was so cute to hear his very first one yesterday:
Chris: Mom, what's invisible and smells like bananas?
Me: What?
Chris: A monkey fart!

These days Jordan is quite moody. One moment he loves me to pieces and the next, he's mad at me. When that happens, he usually tells me that he's not my friend...or something to this effect:

Jordan: Mommy, I'm going to have a puzzle party and you're not invited...only Daddy and Abuela and broder (brother).

For some time now, Jordan's been really obsessed with puzzles. He does puzzles all day every day. My parents are super impressed with how quickly he puts them together. We actually set up races and Jordan always wins. He's like my little puzzle Rain Man. His favorites are the Melissa and Doug dinosaur floor puzzle with 48 pieces and the alphabet train one. When he first started doing that one, he would sing the alphabet to himself so he could figure out which piece came next.
