Happy Birthday Evan

We celebrated Evan's 5th birthday yesterday. It's hard to believe how fast time is flying on by. It feels like just yesterday he entered the world. And on that day we were filled with so much worry and fear; for his life and future on this Earth. Those feelings were uncontrollable and unfortunately not the typical feelings most parents experience with the birth of a child, their first child. Luckily we stayed strong and positive for him. Now, Evan is living his life happy and loved.

It has been quite an eventful few days of celebrating! Over the weekend we had Evan's birthday party, Monday we attended his preschool celebration/graduation and yesterday was his birthday! Not to mention he only has one day of school left before summer vacation!

Evan was just thrilled with all of the birthday attention this past week. He was very excited about his birthday party and just loved blowing out the candles on his cake. And as most children are, he was ecstatic about opening presents. He is such a sweet, loving, happy child. I am so proud of how far he has come!



  1. Hat’s off to you for your patience and positivity for Evan. My best wishes are with him. I work for an NGO that helps children who are suffering from Ichthyosis. Last month we celebrated one of those children’s birthday at famous kid’s party space rentals in Brooklyn. It was really special day!!

  2. The best way for Treatment of Ichthyosis is to soak the skin in lukewarm water and then slather your still damp skin with a cream moisturizer. You can add epsom salts or add moisturizers like colloidal oatmeal to your bath; salts and moisturizers help your skin absorb the water and lock in the moisture more successfully.
