Graham on Twitter


Yes, it’s about that time.  Graham will be 2 soon so clearly he needs his own shiny new twitter account.  I swear we’re not just trying to be trendy.  It really is a great way to have a record of what they say, because, let’s face it, I can’t remember what I ate for breakfast most days.

Meanwhile, here are some of Violet’s latest.  Graham isn’t there yet, but soon.

  • I’m dancing, Daddy is taking care of Graham, Mommy is watering plants and drinking wine. Everything is right!
  • Graham, if you keep continuing, I will not be able to continue.
  • Graham, I can’t wait until you are the same age as me. Then I’ll name you Violet.

    Hilarious! The joys of having an incredibly verbal child. I find Violet’s vocabulary awe-inspiring.
