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.

Birthday Stuff

Between cousin Katie and the Crutchfields, I think every aspect of the Bubbie Birthday Bash was photographed. If you missed it, which is probably unlikely, here is a pretty good play-by-play of the celebration!

The LOVE CAKES where made by mommy, decorated by cousin Katie - green for Parker, blue for Tyler! Love cakes for the Lovies!

Our funky cupcakes turned out to be pretty colorful and very tasty!

Being challenged by John to do something productive with the boy's empty Gerber food containers (besides throwing them out), I filled them with personalized M&M's. I think they made good party favors (until someone spilled their lemonade on them - any confessions?)!

"Goodie Pales" were given to those in Elementary school and below - filled with snack packs, monkey balls filled with kisses, and a sea creature. Tyler and Parker wanted to make sure their friends had a special treat and felt "thanked" for coming to celebrate with them!
