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.

Big Machine, Little Dudes

We have a "stench" problem in our house that leads directly back to two vomiting, poopy, drooling boys. Our carpets are hiding months of formula spills, baby feeding attempts and lots of reflux traumas. We try to clean up after each "activity" but a burb cloth and hot soapy water can only do sooo much! Well, we finally moved EVERYTHING out of the living room and had the carpet cleaned. Smell the fresh scent...whiff! What? Is that Tyler puking all over the newly cleaned carpet? Catch him! Catch him...nope, missed the burp cloth. Our newly cleaned carpet is once again a breeding ground for our bacteria friends - I can smell them already!

So John is trying to keep up with the constant activity and after Tyler's nightly puke-fest projected beyond our vomit-catching blanket, he pulled out the "big guns". Our made-for-home-use carpet cleaner came to the rescue! We thought the boys would freak out over the noise - and they did, at first. But in no time both boys were in the living room with daddy trying to touch the big machine. "Oh...big carpet cleaner!"

While John was cleaning out the machine, I snapped a picture of the boys attacking it - they were so intrigued. I wonder if this means they're going to be 'bigger is better' guys? Rut roh!
