Adorable.

From The Daily Mail: 

Babies born at a Pittsburgh hospital are heading home with their parents in tiny stockings.

The Magee-Women’s Hospital at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center snapped photos of the tots lined up in the stockings, each with a green or red hat atop their head.

Parents spending their first Christmas with their babies at the hospital get the stockings and hand-knitted hats as keepsakes, ABC reported.

Nurses at the hospital have been organizing the event for several years, it added.

On Facebook, staff shared a photo of the pile of tiny hats that volunteers have kindly knitted for the new arrivals.

‘If you’ve walked through the Magee lobby recently, you may have noticed a group of women surrounded by construction tape,’ a message on the page read.

‘Known as the “Magee Knitters”, the group started in September 2014 with a mission to make caps for the newborn babies at the hospital.’

By Tuesday, the Magee Knitters had whipped up a staggering 193 hats for the babies.
