— Dr. Seuss, Happy Birthday to You!

Doctor’s Medical Center in Modesto California had the most adorable welcome for these babies who now share a birthday with the great Dr. Seuss:

One of their volunteers, Eleanor Ford who has been volunteering at the hospital since 2001, knit these adorably themed Dr. Seuss hats. In addition to the hats, every baby born at DMC through March will receive the book “Happy Birthday To You”.

“This is something I thoroughly enjoy doing, it’s very relaxing to me,” Eleanor said. “I love volunteering at Doctors Medical Center and I hope to continue volunteering for many years to come.”

FromDoctors Medical Center on Facebook:

“Cuteness overload! Babies born today share a birthday with Dr. Seuss and are receiving a special hat, knitted by one of our amazing volunteers (see previous post). Plus, babies born at DMC throughout the month of March will receive the book, “Happy Birthday to You!” as part of National Reading Month.

We LOVE reading and hope these books help start a library for these newborns!”
