Too cute for words. (So we have pictures.)

Maybe it’s all the hormones I still have pumping after just having my own kid six months ago, but, man, I can’t help but be in love with these teeny, tiny costumed babies currently in the Intensive Care Nursery at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. The nurses and care staff threw the families a little Halloween party yesterday and dressed up the little ones for the occasion.

“It’s nice to have something to look forward to,” said mom, Kayla, who gave birth to baby Wyatt at 25 weeks and two days. Wyatt, who was dressed as a pirate, has been in the ICN for just over two months. “There are definitely a lot of ups and downs and little things to celebrate day to day, but something like this was a little more exciting.”

Check out more precious photos of Wyatt and his friends below.
