Making baby hats for the hospital

Starting December 1st, I started making baby hats that I could take to the hospital during the Christmas season.
When I was in young womens, one of the projects I chose wad making baby hats for premie babies bc a lot of times they are too tiny for regular clothes and have to wear baby doll clothes or clothes that don't fit.
A lady that was in our ward and worked w these premies at the nearby hospital told me about this. I made a bunch of tiny baby hats for them.
This year, Chris came w me to the store and helped me pick out yarn to make the hats. I already had the supplies (i used a knitting circle thing for the hats), and made cute hats, many of which were Christmasy colors. I started to work on them everyday, but I couldn't keep that up the whole month but I ended up still making some really cute hats.
Chris' bday is Christmas Eve and he helped me drop them off to a hospital, I went to the top floor and delivered them to the Nicu place for these tiny little babies. The ladies thought they were so cute and asked for my info so they could write me a letter. I told them it was ok bc I didn't make them to get a letter or anything out of it.
When leaving I noticed some dads or other family members leaving with worried looks on
their faces, I was just glad I could make something cute for those little babies born around christmas time to keep them warm.
