To your child, you are their everything. And this video of a baby clearly seeing his mum for the first time is all the proof you need that this is absolutely true.
For a new mum, the moment your little one looks up and locks eyes with you is one that you will never forget. For mum Erin Reppond, this moment was four months in the making – and it’s one that the entire family will cherish forever.
Baby Leopold Wilbur Reppond was born with oculocutaneous albinism, a condition that severely impairs his sight. While he has been able to identify his family through his other senses, the little man had yet to see his mother’s face clearly.
Infant glasses company, Miraflex designed a pair of glasses so the four-month-old could see. Watch what happens when baby Leo finally sees his mother’s face clearly for the first time.
What a beautiful reminder of just how powerful the bond between a mother and her child really is. Need more spectacle cuteness? Take another look at what happened when actor Shane Jacobson’s baby boy put on his glasses for the first time.
