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.

Keeping Tired Bubbies Up!

So the bubbies decided to DC their third nap during the day. What does this mean? Let me explain their schedule: a 30-45 minute nap ensues @ mid morning, 1.5 to 2 hour nap around noon, and then another quick 30-45 minute late afternoon (around 4ish). That puts them at a good tired state around 8ish, hopefully in bed by 9pmish! Well, the boys are just sooo busy in the afternoon, they just can't be bothered to settle down for a nap...BUT come 5:30/6:00pm, who's crying with droopy eyes? Yep - the BUBBIES! Now when they don't get a nap, John and I have fun keeping the boys up and amused until it's time to let them relax and snooze! See John's solution below!
Here's daddy with the boys on a field trip to the backyard. His efforts to keep them awake brought them to a new, fun location! They looked curiously around the backyard, picked at some grass, stared at John ("where'd you take us daddy?") and bottom line...stayed awake! We obviously don't get out enough with the boys, do we?

Brothers playing!
Tyler and Parker: "Interrupting us AGAIN - sheesh...do you want something?"

Cute happy faces...

...glaring and scowling faces!
