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.

It was a lot of fun having everyone around the dinner table, including the boys. Aunt Teresa bought a couple of high chairs so the boys could be a part of the group. I think they were in heaven!
Parker ate his Winnie the Pooh toy, while Tyler...
...threw everything down on the floor and chewed on his burp cloth. He almost got the place mat, but I think we caught that in time! "Manners therapy" is obviously a continued service for the boys!
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!
