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.

Parker Walks!

Well he's been on the cusp and I knew it was only a matter of days before he'd take that first step! Yes, Parker walks! He's been standing up by himself lately and watching Tyler walk around the house like he's been doing it his entire life. In fact I've seen Parker reach out like he's about to walk and then, plop! he sits down. Below is footage of Tyler taking a LONG walk (he's gotten so solid on his feet) and Parker taking a few steps to mommy!

And I promise that as soon as I figure out how to edit, I will "cut the fat", but until then they will remain posted "raw" - sorry! ;o) It's life at it's purest though, right?

Above video: Here is our expert walker, Tyler. He is so steady on his feet now - he actually prefers to walk now instead of crawl!

Above video: Here is Parker's little walk - it's just a few steps, but that's where they start, right? Don't blink or you may miss it - ha ha! Go Parker GO!
