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.

Bubbies Behind the Wheel!
Parker: "Hey the hands are at 10 & 2...now do you trust me to drive?"
Parker: "Let's put the window up, then down, then up again, then down...wait, what was I just doing? Oh yeah, driving!"
Tyler: "I'm not sure about this driving thing...steering wheel you call it? Yeah, I'll pass for now!"
Tyler: "In fact, I'll just look at myself in the mirror instead...being cute is more fun than driving!"
Yes boys that's right, stick to YOUR cars for now! Mommy doesn't need any stress-inducing activities...yet! I'm not stupid, I know they're coming! Ha ha!
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!
