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.

Brothers Together Forever

Brothers together again - what a moment!

Two little Cowboys fans - ha ha!

First Dilemna...what to do when both boys are fussing? Hum...

This was such a nice moment for me...didn't last long, but it was nice while it lasted!

Here's to MANY more moments like this!
Whew...now let's just take a moment and reflect on how grateful we are for the wonderful miracle of life! Our lives are changed FOREVER!

Hearing Tyler came home brought tears to my eyes!!!! FINALLY!!!! These pictures speak a thousand words. holding both of your boys in their own house!!! :) You all ROCK! I cannot wait to occasionally see updates, as I know you will be a busy momma the next few months (ok well YEARS) haha. Keep in mind that you are amazing, no one can top the experiences a NICU mom goes through! Love ya guys & would love to meet up.. Maybe after RSV season?

ps. the boys are too cute in their co-sleeper.. One hand up & the other one down... Also, those eye appointments NEVER are short, we always waited at least 1-2 hours for our appointment.. good luck!

Well I'm sobbing and I was there!

FYI: What is not shown in these delightful photos is Daddy with a matching Cowboys outfit.

Thank you Heather and John for sharing this intimate time in your lives. You are both remarkable and together you have been extraordinary. What lucky little boys.

There are just too many things to say! I think the first is CONGRATULATIONS!!! I'm so happy for all of you! Heather, seeing you, sitting at home, both boys in your lap brought tears of joy. I'm beyond happy that this moment has finally happened for you and John. Congrats again, Thompson family!

Much love,
Ashley, Kevin & Eve
