'He's smiling!' Baby's priceless reaction after hearing for first time

"He's smiling!" 

Every parent delights in seeing their child smile, but for Michelle and Toby Lever, the moment was especially precious when their seven-week-old baby Lachlan heard their voices for the first time. Diagnosed with moderate-to-severe hearing loss at birth, Lachlan looks somewhat miserable as doctors put hearing aids in his ears. But upon hearing his mother say "Hi, darling," a smile immediately comes across the baby's face, bringing joy to all in the room (and on the web).

The video capturing the magic was filmed back in 2012. Lachlan's father writes on YouTube that "Our beautiful little boy is now two years old and doing remarkably well."

Watch the amazing moment here:
