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.

Parker Chills

Lately we've had to "tuck" his arms in his swaddled blanket to make sure he doesn't pull out his CPAP.

Despite having pulled it off multiple times, I finally gave in and let him have an arm out. I tried to "tuck" it in after he fell asleep, only to have him wake up and get mad:)

Wow! Those boys are growing! Now we have some new nicknames for them:
Tyler is now dubbed "Chubby." Not only is it an accurate size description, but he's also becoming an accomplished dancer of the "twist." So, it would be okay with me if you added "Checker" to the nickname.

We think it only appropriate that "Chubby" should be accompanied by his 'Big' little brother "Moose."

Congratulations on such great growth spurts. God is good!
