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.

How to Keep Babies Busy in the Hospital

Think about two one-year olds in hospital cribs for four days...what do you do with ALL of that TIME? Tick, tock, tick tock... Well, you pack A LOT of toys!

We brought a suitcase FULL of toys and books.

By day two Tyler was feeling better, you think?

Brother bubbies having a playdate. Sometimes we'd put them together and let them play. They didn't play together necessarily, but just being by each other made them calm down. It was very interesting to see.

We took a dozen or so books. By the end of our stay, I realized we needed at least three times that many! I was soooo sick of reading the same books over and over again. "Is Spot under the bed? NO! Is Spot in the piano? No Spot...not in the piano! Is Spot..." AHHHH! Go away Spot...just go away and never come back!
Don't I look lovely...can you say tired? I needed an IV by the time we left!
