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: "Do I really have to do this again?"

So we continue to explore Stage 1 baby foods. The boys are really not into eating food yet, but they do seem to tolerate prunes nicely. Sweetpotatoes are also a favorite. Of course, "favorite" means they eat a full 2 teaspoons rather than 1 teaspoon - I know, pretty sad!

"Sure I like it better, can't you tell?"

Tyler: The "buzzy bee" is flying into the bee hive! Buzzzz...!"

Tyler opens up wide!

"Yummo! I think prunes are pretty good and I like the bees!"

I've read a couple of times that it takes as many as 15 tries before a baby decides he likes a food. Keep up the good work Mommy!! They'll gobble it up soon enough!
