Watch What Happens When This Baby Hears His Parents’ Voices For The First Time (Video)

This heartwarming home video will definitely perk up your Friday…

Baby Lachlan was born with moderate to severe hearing loss in both ears. But after having hearing aids fixed at seven weeks old, he’s finally been able to hear properly for the first time – including what his parents’ voices sound like.

And luckily for us, his dad captured the whole magical experience on camera.

Watch the full video below…

At first, you can see Lachlan getting a little teary at the plastic object being fixed to his ear, but as soon as it’s up and running he’s obviously thrilled by everything he can hear.

‘When they turned the headphones on and Lachlan smiled and his face lit up, it was the most magical thing I’d ever seen in my life,’ Lachlan’s mum told Daily Mail Australia. ‘I had never been more happy in my life.’
