Easter is this weekend, which means it's time for Easter egg hunts, chocolate goodies, and of course, the Easter bunny. Sadly, there are some little bunnies that aren't feeling so well this Easter. Every single day, babies are born premature and are required to spend some time in a special part of the hospital. This is obviously an extremely difficult time for their parents, especially around the holidays.
That’s why nurses from the Methodist Dallas Medical Center in Texas have spent months crocheting little caps for the preemies in NICU. The nurses’ story began last December when they were working on their Christmas cap project.
So, in an effort to bring up everyone’s spirits, the nurses came together to organize the Hooked on Preemies project. As a group, they knitted dozens of adorable Santa hats for all of the preemies.
So, they posted all of the pictures on their social media websites to share all of the cuteness with their followers. Obviously, the pictures of the preemies in Santa hats were a huge hit, so the nurses decided to do the same thing for Easter.
Each family who has a preemie in NICU receives a pair of hand-crocheted bunny ears and a picture of their baby wearing them, which they get to keep. The nurses, who wanted to make the holiday special for all of the families, even wrote cute little phrases with each of the pictures.
This little guy said: “I’m Edward. Hippity Hoppity, Easter is on the way! Listen, I may have floppy ears, but there are no bad hare days around here.” Honestly, the cuteness of these babies is out of control!
After all, you can't have a frown on your face when you're looking at such a cute bunny! Happy Easter little bunnies, the nurses made lovely ears for you all!
