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.

Parker has a tooth!

Well, we knew the boys were working on getting their teeth because they've both been terrible drool and chew monsters lately. And they've both been whining monsters as well (not nearly as fun). Tonight Parker was outrageously cranky - I assumed it was lack of sleep. We had a BIG day at the GI's this morning and neither 'bubbie' had good naps today - good reason to cry "just because". Out of curiosity, I felt around Parker's gums just to see if anything new had happened since I was in there last and what did I find? I found a sharp little edge that made me go "no way...it CAN'T be!" Sure enough, I tipped Parker back into the light and there it was...the shiny, jagged, white edge of his tooth! It's sitting in the front/bottom of his mouth and looking very cute, I might add! Well, of course mom and dad had to get a picture...daddy's pictures of Parker's mouth are to be desired, but you get the point. I think we'll have to get video to capture the moment more completely.

Here are pics below...I will update on today's GI appointment later, when it's not so late. 5am came a little too early for us today - gggrrrr...
