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.

Climbing Mnt. Thompson

video

One of the skills in the Carolina Assessment (from which the boys will be evaluated) is climbing stairs. So...on their way to nap and bath-times (which take place upstairs), they climb baby CLIMB! Nothing like REALLY tiring the Bubbies out before naptime! Parker is starting to figure out that stair climbing = nap and has been a little sluggish lately. Hummm...I might have to put incentives at the top, nap just isn't incentive enough for them. Now for me...I'd climb the stairs for a nap, are you kidding?

Here's footage of the boys on their latest quest - but it's hard to get decent footage while preventing danger from enveloping TWO newly-climbing Bubbies. Yes, of course the footage is to be desired, nothing new there! But you see that I do use positive reinforcement...and some prodding, whatever! ;o)

These last few posts are just darling. I love the scramble up the stairs.
