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 Unleashed

So the boys are learning new tricks all the time - too stinkin' fun! But sometimes they pull out "old" tricks that I forget about - like today when I realized that I forgot to seat belt Tyler into his bouncy chair! I'm not sure where he thought he was going, but BOTH of the boys look guilty.

"What? We didn't do it!"

John is out of town for a few days so I've called in reinforcements to keep me company and give me a helping hand - especially at night when the boys need to go down for the night. My friend and co-worker Helen came over tonight, normally a BIG help, right? Well tonight presented a little challenge - something happened that has NEVER happened before. Parker took one look at Helen and began the biggest "wing ding" I'd ever seen. He hysterically cried and cried and cried...I tried to soothe him but then he'd look at Helen and just "roar". It was the oddest thing I'd EVER seen! He's NEVER done that! His poor little face was beat red and I had to hold him and try to calm him down until he finally fell asleep for the night.

So I'd tell Helen to NEVER come over again except Tyler actually LIKED Helen and cuddled with her. Whew...wouldn't want Helen to get a complex! Here are pictures as proof! ;o) Thanks Helen...really!

"Mommy! Heeeelp meeee!"

"I don't know what brother is crying about, but this chick seems okay to me!"
