MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - If these pictures don’t make you smile, look again!

The tiniest patients at Mid-South hospitals got in on the Halloween festivities.

A spokesperson for Baptist Memorial Health Care says nurses there made the costumes in an effort to bring a sense of normalcy to NICU families during a time filled with so much uncertainty because of COVID-19.

The hand-made costumes include Kobe Bryant, Baby Yoda, a Starbucks Frappuccino and even two Baptist doctors -- Dr. Arrindell Jr. and Dr. Arrindell Sr., father-son neonatologists at Baptist Women’s Hospital.

They aren’t the only babies getting in on the fun. Babies in the NICU at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital celebrated with an “Under the Sea” theme.

Each baby dressed as a sea creature -- fish, mermaids and scuba divers! All the costumes were made by hospital nurses.

Check out the Halloween costumes at another Memphis hospital.

This Halloween may not be the same, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress up! We want to see your costumes. Upload them below!
