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.

New Terrible Memories

Here is Parker after his IV was finally placed. He looks MUCH better, but is still dehydrated and lethargic.

Parker's lips were so dry and chapped.

Here's Tyler resting in the room next to Parker's in the ER. He looks like he's gagging but he's been chewing on blankets like crazy lately - I think it has to do with his teething. He's getting in his top incisors before his front teeth - just like brother.

The nurses put the boys together on one gurney so we could all be together.

I (mommy) went to UC Davis with Tyler in the ambulance. Neither John nor I were allowed to fly with Parker in the helipcopter. The Paramedic gave Tyler a Panda bear in the ambulance. Tyler held onto that Panda the entire way to UCD, through the hospital and into his room. It was sooo cute! People were looking at this little baby on a huge gurney and were commenting at how cute he looked.
