Halloween isn't until Thursday, but Swedish American Hospital already won the costume contest.

For some people, Halloween might be about being scary but for me it's all about who looks the cutest and this baby clearly is the cutest thing anyone has ever seen.

Each year Swedish American's NICU team dresses up the littlest babies in the area for Halloween, and that happened last Friday.

With just two colors of felt and some black paint, the 'small fry' costume is the best thing I've ever seen.

According to My Stateline, the staff dresses up the babies to brighten the spirits in an otherwise difficult part of the hospital.

The fry's name is Lincoln and he's expected to go home soon.
