[Source: Arizona Daily Star] – When William and Stewart Simpson arrived nearly 12 weeks before their due date, parents Wes and Penny unexpectedly began spending most of their time at the hospital.

Since the twins’ birth July 24, the Simpsons have been keeping a daily watch on their children in the new neonatal intensive-care unit (NICU) in the new Diamond Children’s Medical Center. Diamond Children’s is part of a $200 million expansion at University Medical Center.

While it doesn’t officially open until next month, young patients have already moved in. The boys will likely stay hospitalized until their original due date Oct. 14.
