Welcome to Tyler and Parker Thompson's Blog

Tyler and Parker Thompson arrived on June 23, 2008 at only 26 weeks and 4 days old, weighing 1 pound 6 ounces (Parker) and 1 pound 10 ounces (Tyler). Parker spent 129 days (home 10/30/08) in the NICU, while brother Tyler spent 143 (home 11/13/08). We are thrilled to have our family complete with both boys home!

This blog was created by John (the daddy) to inform family and friends (and now new acquaintances) of the twins progression. Below is the blog archive dating back to the week Heather (the mommy) was admitted to the hospital. We try to post weekly updates, but on occasion the week gets the best of us.

more cute pics





June 30 6:55

So we decorated the boys room in Pooh style. We discovered, through someone elses brilliant observation that Parker and Pooh both start with P and Tyler and Tigger both start with T. Which has more meaning when you realize that from the beginning Tyler has always had a higher heart rate and has been so much more active than Parker.....just like Tigger and Pooh!! Oh the little things that amuse us. So anyway we took a little stuffed Pooh and Tigger into the NICU and took the boys pictures with them:) We will carry them around with us now so that we can show them to people to get an even better frame of reference. p.s. Heather's co-worker Kathy had knitted two cute little caps with Dallas Cowboy stars on them for me for father's day, but quickly made two more much smaller ones once she saw the pics on line. We can't put them on the boys yet (although as you can see they would fit!!) but we saw that they do fit on Tigger and Pooh. Thus the "rasta" caps that the Pooh and Tigger are wearing in the pics:):)
