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.

Yankee Doodle Dandies!

The boys would like to say "Happy 4th of July"! This time last year they weren't able to celebrate ( heel stick blood draws, jaundice tanning, and secretion succtioning didn't allow time for fireworks and barbeque). Today they sported their first 4th of July shirts and really got into the spirit by watching a documentary on how America obtained its independence (no, they were NOT watching Yo Gabba Gabba in this picture, that would not be appropriate)!

Boys with their Pooh and Tigger balls they got from daddy!

Tyler creeping up on mommy!

Parker being thrilled about the 4th, can't you tell?
