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.

Day at the Park

John and I decided that before the weather turned we'd expose the boys to life at the park! We live across the street from the park, one of the main reasons we bought the house we're in. I have a feeling that we may be spending some time at the park next summer - just a hunch!

So last weekend we had a little park adventure that turned out to be quite an exploration for the boys and the perfect time-killer for mommy and daddy! ;o) The boys curiously wandered around the equipment and tasted the local bark, tripped and fell on multiple surfaces, and climbed on toy dinosaurs. That's a good time, wouldn't you say? We had to put shoes on the boys (yes, they just don't wear them in the house, go figure) which challenged their walking abilities a bit. They prefer "naked" feet and were periodically distracted by the big rubber things that attacked their feet right before we left for the park.

One of the "firsts" for the boys was going down a slide - yippee! There is video below of their first slide at the park! I will post some other cute video of our park adventure another time - it just takes too long for the videos to upload and three was really pushing the limit tonight! ;o)

Daddy and Bubbies take a break under the jungle gym - this playing stuff is tough work!

Tyler's hair was sticking up all over because of the static. It was hilarious!
