TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Adorable babies in Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare’s (TMH) Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) are all dressed up for the holidays!

TMH says their night nurses created the costumes while the day nurses helped bring the holiday cheer to life. The babies were dressed as festive trees, snowmen, and precious presents labeled "special delivery," and "best gift ever."

"Having a new baby in the NICU can sometimes make the holidays feel a little less merry," TMH officials wrote in a statement, "but our amazing team works to make the environment as comfortable as possible for our babies and families – including bringing the festive fun to them!"

TMH is home to the region’s only NICU and high-risk labor and delivery unit.
