Heartwarming Video Shows Baby Smiling When Dad Turns Her Hearing Aids On
Four-month-old Georgina Addison was born completely deaf, but after a few weeks, she was fitted with two hearing aids without which she was not able to hear anything.
Each morning when her mum and dad go to wake her up, they switch on the hearing aids and get a reaction similar to the one in the video.
That's a decent way to start the day, right?
In the video clip shared by her parents, Paul and Louise, we can hear a bleep as the hearing aid clicks into gear, and then a short gasp from the young girl, before she begins laughing and smiling at the sound of her mother's voice.
The shots we've got in this article were taken by 32-year-old Paul, from Harrogate, who says that the morning routine 'fills his heart with joy' every single time.
He said: "It's like she's having the lights switched on and she can hear her mum's voice.
"She is instantly delighted and becomes much happier straight away.
"Her face lights up and she looks delighted.
"For us as parents it is a true delight for us too.
"It fills my heart with joy and you just can't put a price on things like this.
"Every morning she reacts like it's a completely new experience and that will never get old."
The pair discovered their first born daughter was deaf shortly after her birth in August, and after initial audiological tests revealed her issues with hearing, they were referred to a specialist.
Of course, it's a difficult time for any parent.
Paul continued: "Getting that sort of news is always going to be difficult.
"We focused on the practicalities of the situation and did our best to stay positive."
Georgina was furnished with her new hearing airs back in September, but the video was filmed on 5 December.
Her proud dad added: "She's a very happy baby and we made sure it wouldn't become a long term issue.
"Every morning now when we turn the hearing aids on we get this lovely reaction from her.
"She smiles every morning when she's able to access sound. It's just gorgeous."
