Watch This Baby See His Mom Clearly For The First Time
Our hearts have officially melted.
If there’s one kind of online video that never gets old, it’s those of children seeing or hearing for the very first time. And thanks to amazing advances in medical technology, the internet is quickly filling up with these heartwarming clips.
The latest adorable moment to be captured on camera comes from Denmark, courtesy of the Instagram account of Christine Rosenhøj, mother to the 5-month-old Emil.
Watch the heartwarming video below:
Emil looks a bit confused at first, but once he sees his mom, his entire face lights up.
“It was an amazing moment,” Rosenhøj told TODAY. “It was like being a mom again. It was the first time he looked at me and recognized me.”
A translation via Google Translator of the text next to the video reads, “Today is a great day, Emil got his glasses. The journey has been long and our little baby has a lot to go through to sit here and smile with his small glasses, but now they are here. Welcome to +7.0 baby glasses and a lot of eye contact with mom and dad.”
Since posting the video to Instagram, it has been watched more than 26,000 times, picked up by multiple media outlets and shared around the world.
Now that Emil has new glasses, his world has changed and nothing is holding him back. He even has a new friend with matching specs.
The text next to the above post translates via Google Translator as, “Meet Emil’s new friend Noah. He has also just got glasses.”
“Everything is different,” Rosenhøj told TODAY. “He’s looking at everything now—the dogs and his toys—he smiles to us when we talk and play. He is laughing a lot more now because he can see our faces.”
Rosenhøj continues to share her son’s new adventures, with more than 2,000 Instagrammers following Emil as he gets a new look at the world.
