Thank You NICU Nurses

These cookies were made last year as a parting gift for Idrees's favorite NICU nurses. The BWH is for Brigham and Women's Hospital, and the I is for Idrees. Some were made into oversized favors like pictured above for specific people. I also made big trays of mini's to put near the coffee machine as a treat for everyone. I made them in one night, so it was a bit of a rush job. If I had more time I would have made the BWH much nicer or even the hospitals actual logo.

Birthday Sweets

I made this cake and cake truffles for Idrees's birthday. The cake is blue velvet with chocolate buttercream and a chocolate buttercream ricotta filling. The decorations are royal icing transfers that I made to match the hanging decorations and paper goods. The truffles are the same blue velvet cake covered in a rich semisweet chocolate ganache. Both were enjoyed and it was a rewarding experience to make my little boy's first birthday cake.

It's been a long year and I wanted to give an update on my little guy Idrees. Idrees is doing unbelievably well now. He's still on oxygen at home, but doesn't have any other major issues thank god. I want to put a little of his story here just so that if anyone ever finds themselves or someone close to them in this position they can have some hope and know that it is possible for them to still have a happy healthy child. When I was pregnant with him I had a premature rupture of membranes(PPROM) when I was only 14 weeks along. At first I was expected to have a miscarriage, but it never happened. Then he was not expected to live and I was urged to terminate my pregnancy with him. Although I am pro-choice, personally that is not something I could ever do. So I continued on and kept leaking fluid for the rest of my pregnancy and never reaccumulated any fluid around him. I was never given a shred of hope for his outcome from any doctor. Despite what they said he hung on another whopping 18 weeks after my water broke before being born at almost 32 weeks. He just turned one year old and I have no words that can do justice how I feel about that and him. He is such a joy and blessing in our lives. Here's a picture of him on his first birthday to compare to the one I posted almost a year ago. These are taken by my lovely sister and favorite photgrapher Feda Eid

P.S. I'm taking orders again and I've made some cookies recently so look out for the relaunch of Dream It Up Cookies!

Haven't been baking cookies for a while...

But I've been baking other things, like this little guy:

Born on March 3rd, at almost 32 weeks gestation, 3lbs 9oz. He's been getting some help with breathing but is doing great thank god.

Hopefully I'll be back to baking cookies by June, I've really missed it :-)
