PITTSBURGH — The force is strong with some Pennsylvania newborns — dressed up as Baby Yoda from “Star Wars: The Mandalorian.”
The staff at UPMC Magee Hospital dressed up each baby in custom knitted caps with green Yoda ears.
They were dressed in shirts reading, “Cute I am,” or, “Merry I must be.”
Parents who knew the hospital has a reputation for Christmas cheer were excited to take part.
“I said to her right before they pulled him out, I said, ‘I have a guess. We’ve seen them do Mr. Rogers. We’ve seen him do like, the penguin stuff,’ and we’re like, ‘I wonder if we’ll be in during that time,’ so we got super lucky, and they came in yesterday and said, ‘We’d like for you to do it,” said Sean McGowan, father. “I said, ‘Yep, sign us up. Yep, we’ll do it.'”
The caps were crocheted by a nurse who works at the hospital.
