When Vander woke up Jon and Ruth were still here. When they left Vander went to pick up Uncle Colby. He stayed until about 6pm and even went on a nice bike ride with Vander and me. Then in the middle of the day Pop's came up. Vander got to see 4 of his favorite people. Miraculously Ollie was pleasant all day and took a nap. What a great Sunday!

Ollie made it 4 months without gettings sick, but he didn't make it to cold season. Last night he started wheezing and today we spent 2 1/2 hours at Kaiser getting him breathing treatments and seeing the doctor. He doesn't seem to be feeling too bad, but his breathing is loud and labored. Poor little dude! Oliven is weighing in at 14lbs 6oz.
Vander and I went to the beach with Sabrina and Arielle yesterday afternoon. The weather has been mild all summer, but yesterday was a scorcher. The weather in Santa Cruz was pretty mild, with a little breeze. The water was fridged at first, but you get used to it. Sabrina and Vander enjoyed the sand for a while.

The other day I told Vander he could name the octipi (sp?) and he said okay. He said their names were Bruce. I said I was confused because there were two of them...so, "Big Bruce" and "Little Bruce" were born. I thought it was pretty cute. We, Ollie and I, asked who they were named after and Vander said, "Vander Bruce" and gave us a big smile. So, here is Vander with Big and Little Bruce.

Colby drove back from camp, where he was working over the summer. He had a blast all summer and already can't wait to go back! He came in late on Wednesday night. Thursday we went went him to run errands and enjoyed his company, and he was off already this morning. It was nice to see him, as I have only been able to talk to him twice all summer.
This post is so in several years when my kids ask me what it was like when they were little and I say..." I don't remember." Thursday and Monday were beyond aweful! Seriously I was at my wits end with the boys. One or both of them was screaming and/or crying from 7am to 11am and I was going out of my mind. Two year old meltdowns..."I want to watch more TV!" and "I want to see more pictures." It was just hard to handle because I couldn't get Oliven to nap or calm down. ACK! Monday there was no nap for Ollie. I put him in his crib to cry himself to sleep...he did the crying, but not the sleeping. I didn't know how I was going to make it through the week. They were much better after that. I literally though had to stop the car and get out to breath and calm down, then go back and get Vander to breath and calm down.
