Happy New Year!
Yesterday was New Year's Day. BLT dressed up to celebrate and we went up to SF Chinatown and ran our first 5k. We finished in a respectable just under 30min time. It's a bit of a challenge with the stroller - you have to start in the back and then weave your way through the walkers. BLT did very well for his first race! He had a melt-down just before the start, so I took him out to comfort him and was just buckling him back in when the race started. Once we were moving, everything was just fine. Once we were done he polished off my 1/2 banana and "sqeezer" yogurt that you got for finishing... hey! I was the one running! Daddy did not share his.
BLT is now 3 years old by the Chinese calendar. The Year of the Dog is his 3rd year! He was born in the Year of the Monkey and last year was Year of the Rooster (IIRC).
He had an offical weigh-in Friday at his 15mo dr's appointment (on his 16mo birthday).
He had two shots and didn't cry AT ALL! I had to check and see if they had really given him the shots. He was a busy bee and didn't stop roming the room during the checkup. He was gallavanting around in just a diaper and sneakers. It turns out he has ezcema, so he is now being slathered in Aquaphor multiple times a day instead of getting lotioned up just after his bath. It already looks much better! Poor thing was scratching his upper back and torso at night and gouging himself with his nails. I'm happy to report that it is almost cleared up all together.
Happy New Year!
