My son is an animal

I love getting to know Kanyon and his unique quirks. We all have them, but because he's too young to tell me to stop, I get to display Kanyon's on the world wide web. It occurred to me the other day, that Kanyon is an animal. Not just one animal, but a nice mix of several animals:

1. I've lovingly mentioned this one before. Mostly the physical resemblance and the way he clings to his mommy while she carries him.........

MONKEY!
2. His uncontrollable urge to eat things! Unstoppable and mind blowing. No matter what it is made of (unless its food...stuff meant to be eaten) he will eat it....

GOAT!!!!
3. Though in the animal world, the death roll is used to kill prey, Kanyon's death roll isn't so deadly, just EVER PRESENT! He rolls all the time. It is his answer to everything he is trying to do or anywhere he is trying to go. Even when he's being held, he's trying to roll. This also reminds me of when I was teaching and I would teach the kids something new in writing like apostrophes and they would be so excited that they finally knew how to do them that they would put an apostrophe in EVERY SINGLE word. Much like Kanyon who can finally roll so he does it all the time...but this post isn't about punctuation, its about animal's (see..that is what a student would've done....put an apostrophe "s" there). .................

CROCODILE!!!!!!!!

4. Notice the fist while sitting........


GORILLA!!!!!!!!!!!!
We're still waiting to report that he's eating like a pig!!!
