A deaf baby's reaction on hearing for the first time has left the internet teary-eyed. 11-month-old Scarlet Benjamin had contracted an infection called NEC after being born. The three months premature baby then developed a stomach infection and her mother Caroline Dianne Benjamin had to make the hard decision of giving her antibiotics. While she would be cured of the infection, doctors told Caroline that Scarlet would become deaf.
Now as she is going to turn a year old, Scarlet has started hearing thanks to hearing aid. The video that has gone viral shows Scarlet giggling continuously on hearing her 4-year-old sister Halie calling her "baby sister" repeatedly. The baby goes on laughing looking at her older sister sitting on her mother's lap. She also turns to look at her mother in between who can be seen wiping a tear on seeing her daughter's first reaction after hearing.

By the way, I'm crying, you're crying, everyone is crying." Baby Lip Syncing to 'Girls Like You' With Dad is Too Cute to Handle, Watch Adorable Video.
