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.

Sleepy Heads

Wow! Daddy and Parker had a rough day - they were exhausted! Don't they both look comfy?
So the boys were still on the high flow cannula when we arrived today and both had their pressures turned down from 5 to 4. Parker was handling it great, but Tyler was struggling a bit and breathing REALLY hard. Before we left they turned Tyler's pressure back up to 5.

A little hand holding was in order. Parker is an official "snuggle bug".

They look so precious. I thought I saw little smiles on each of the boys?!. Well, peace, contentment and love anyway...
It's awesome. We all share your joy!

Jakob has figured out how to check in on the boys. Today he saw them without the c-PAP and said,"Mom they look like real babies now!"
They are incredibly cute and chubby!
Breathe in breathe out....Way to go boys!

YAY!! No CPAP!! I am soooo proud of the boys! Reading all your great milestones make me miss the NICU a bit. Although its great being home, it was so awesome sharing and being so close to other families and seeing their babies progress! Being on the nasal canula means they are one huge step closer to coming home, because if need be they can come home on the canula!! :) You GO BOYS!! Keep up the great work!!

ps. Lowells says "hi"! :)
