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.

Hi Brother!

Two neat things are happening here:

First, Parker is lifting his head up! Normally Tyler has the great head control but today Tyler was a bit tired (probably from his upper GI drama) and brother held his head up for a really long time. Just amazing to see!

Second, brothers are staring at each other! They usually don't acknowledge each other and barely look if you put them in front of each other. As they played and had "tummy time", brothers actually checked each other out for a little while!

"Hi Brother!"

"Okay mommy, enough tummy time already!"

I love the pictures! The boys look good. I am sorry that the Upper GI was a nightmare. It sounds so simple, but it is hard on babies. Glad to hear he is ok though.
Love, Jamie (at UCD)
p.s. I am wearing my sweatshirt today, thanks!
