Hospital Gives Newborns Hand-Crocheted Gold Medals and Adorable Team USA Outfits
A hospital presented its new born babies with tiny hand-crocheted Olympian outfits and gold medals.
Staff at Saint Luke’s Health System in Kansas City even decided to celebrate the Tokyo 2020 opening ceremony by passing a plastic ‘torch’ around the babies in their care.
The mini-Team USA ‘athletes’ wore handcrafted swimming, weightlifting, boxing, basketball, gymnastics, and tennis kits for their photoshoot.
The crocheted swimsuit accompanied an adorable swimming hat and goggles, while the weightlifting baby joined weight class 7lb 6oz with their tiny dumbbell.
Around 20 medals gold medals were also made by nurse Stephanie Peterson who works at the Missouri hospital.
She spent about two hours on the infants’ medals to celebrate “how amazing they are for coming into this world.”
‘The crowds’—aka the tots’ families—were invited to cheer on their athlete in the special ceremony and photoshoot, and even got to take the outfit home with them to keep.
