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.

Tyler had a GREAT day! Today Tyler breastfed TWO TIMES with total success! Because we're not sure how much milk he actually drank, he still ended his feeding with gavage, but drank at least 15 minutes worth. For a first-timer, that's just awesome! Good job buddy!

Parky was sleeping with his hands in the air - too stinkin' funny!

"Wave your hands in the air like you don't care!"

"Hum...I think I've got it!"

I can't believe it! Tyler is not going to be outdone by his brother! I am so (insert many adjectives) for both of you, all that pumping and ... you finally get to feed him. Sounds like both boys are on the fast track now.
