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.

Twins Everywhere!

Parker looking disgusted that I'm taking his picture again. I just love watching him walk around with his little push cart - too stinkin' cute!

So the boys friends, the Campo twins, came to visit last Saturday. They look so cute playing together! Unfortunately, the boys aren't used to full-term lungs and both cried when the girls screamed with their outside voices. Parker was almost hysterical at times...they really need more socialization. I'm not sure they'll be getting it this winter though - the boys just had another pulm appointment yesterday and the doctor is going to recommend year 2 shots of Synagis for RSV. He also suggests little exposure this winter - between another season of RSV and a fierce year for the flu, it's important we don't put the boys at risk. The doctor was happy to see that the boys have grown with the addition of their G-tubes - he says, "The best prevention is good nutrition!" Words to live by, don't you think?

I love this picture of Parker and Samantha - they could be related! Their hair color looks EXACTLY the same in this picture!
