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.

Are They Twins?
Okay, John and I think it's weird when people say, "The boys look sooo much alike!" Of course to us the boys look sooo different. There are so many variables: hair color, eye color, head size, height, weight, personalities, eating abilities - I could go further but you get the idea. After people get to know the boys and are around them a while, they too see that the boys are not alike AT ALL. But on occasion, I see a glimpse of "twin"...
At the GI docs - too early for the Bubbies, they are just too tired to wake up!
Okay, so my side by side shot of the boys sleeping. They are sleeping exactly the same way and actually look related in this picture! Amazing!
We have been waiting to get doors on our living room "nook" that holds our stereo and I can't WAIT for this to happen. Look what happens when I turn my back for a SECOND!
We live each day with a sense of hope, happiness, and determination. We take one step at a time, day by day, knowing that we will one day wake up and find ourselve with two grown sons! We savor their existence and try so hard to not take ANY time for granted. After a five year struggle leading up to the birth of our darling little ones, we are so grateful for the family we've been given. This blog has become our family journal that inspires and comforts us daily. Thank you for sharing in this journey with us!
