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.

Tyler Pulls Up!

Tyler is working on standing up by himself! Now ask him to crawl? NO WAY! He doesn't want anything to do with being on his tummy and that includes rolling onto it and/or crawling. I think his reflux has just been too bad for him to be comfortable on his stomach so he avoids it at all costs. Here's a documented account of Tyler's quest to standing up!Tyler: "I think I can do it, but one last look at mommy will give me the strength I need to start!"
"Here I go...psych up a bit..."


"...and I'm up!"
[sorry, looks like I missed some in between shots - ha ha! I swear he got up there on his own!]
