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.

While Daddy's Away...

Can't tell the boys apart, just look at their darling Pooh and Tigger outfits sporting their names!

Mr. Tyler is doing MUCH better than last week's hospital scare. With this specialized formula, his feedings increased greatly and weight gained appropriately. We have another visit to the doctor on Friday and should all go well, we don't need to return for a month. Yippee!

Friday the boys received their RSV shots - ouchie! They were such troopers...they only cried for a second and then got over it. I think it's the only good thing about being in the NICU - a shot is not a big deal compared to the daily poking and prodding they were getting in the hospital. What good boys!

Hey Parky Pooh!

Cousin Jillian came from Oregon to visit and help with the boys while daddy was in Dallas at the Cowboys game. What a fabulous help she's been and the boys LOVE her!

Thank goodness we are allowed to take walks outside! Here's a pic of the boys FIRST walk with their friends - Campo twins, Sam and Logan and Sammie Peck. This was so perfect because our friends met us outside with their loved ones in prospective strollers and we walked through the neighborhood. Beautiful day, awesome company, and fabulous exercise - all GOOD things!
