’Tis the season to be Baby Yoda!
Babies born at UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital in Pittsburgh this holiday season are being dressed up as the cute little green creature from the new Disney Plus “Star Wars” spinoff series “The Mandalorian.”
The infants are wearing tiny onesies emblazoned with Yoda-esque phrases, such as “Cute I Am” and “Merry I Must Be.” And, for a festive twist, they are also donning Santa caps with green Yoda-style ears ― crocheted by nurse Caitlin Pechin.
“These babies are out of this galaxy cute,” the hospital captioned a Facebook post featuring photographs of the babies on Monday.
“The cuteness force is strong with our #MageeHolidayBabies!” the hospital wrote on Twitter:

In July, babies were dressed up as little gherkins in honor of Pittsburgh’s Picklesburgh celebration.
