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.

Need Some Help :)

Okay, so this isn't necessarily directly related to the boys, but it is a problem that is draining my savings account that we're relying on to take care of the boys while Heather's at home. Is anyone out there (or does anyone know of anyone) looking to rent a condo? We own a rental condo that is sitting vacant that needs some good tenants. It's in west Roseville. A two bedroom two bath with fireplace that has a private garage with private entrance from the garage. It has new carpet and new paint as well. Call me if you know of anyone:) 916-257-1519. There's my gratuitous plug for the day:):)

Boys update: My courageous, heroic wife has been taking care of the boys full time all by herself as I have been trying to keep my massive head cold to myself. Going to work each day has been keeping them away, but when I get home I've been collapsing (and coughing up a lung) in the bedroom upstairs. So far so good on not spreading the disease, but poor Heather has been runnin' solo for several days now. The boys are pluggin' along enjoying story time and play time each day with their adoring mother. It's really very precious to watch them gaze attentively at her when she is reading the "big books" to them. They really are starting to take on individual personalities as well as starting to recognize when brother is getting attention and they are not:):) Ooohh it's only the beginning of the lesson of sharing.
