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.

Bunny Boys!

Happy Easter from "Bunny Boy" Tyler...
...and "Bunny Boy" Parker!

Parker: "Not again mommy...haven't you learned? Not another silly hat!"

The boys had their first Easter dinner at Aunt Teresa's house! What an adventure - our first BIG outting with the boys. We brought the entire living room, including activity centers, bouncy chairs, and boppies. The boys were VERY good considering they'd never been around a large group of people ...since the NICU that is - ha ha!

So, in all of the excitement I ended up with only a handful of pictures from the BIG event. Nice, mommy. I'm sure my family has a bunch of pics, but my camera ended up producing only two good shots of the boys...this one with Tyler grabbing some wine. Of course, Minnie Mouse is on the glass, so I'm sure he's grabbing for her not the wine, right? ha ha!

And here's a picture of Parker with Velear. The look on Parker's face was pretty much how the boys looked the first hour - sort of stunned. After the boys got used to the unfamiliar faces and were put in their activity centers, they began laughing, smiling and acting like themselves again!
Easter with the family was a success - whew!
