Chesapeake, Va. – Some of the smallest supporters of healthy hearts were recently photographed wearing their red in celebration of National Wear Red Day on Friday, Feb. 7, 2014, courtesy of Chesapeake Regional Medical Center.

The babies were born in the month of January at Chesapeake Regional Medical Center’s BirthPlace, one of the busiest labor and delivery units in Hampton Roads, according to medical officials.

CRMC volunteers knitted the hats and booties, and Mom 365 Newborn Photographer at CRMC Lynn Cox snapped the photos.
