The Ohio mom shared her daughter's cute moment on Facebook, where it collected more than 18 million views
What better way to kick off Monday than with a smiley baby video?
An Ohio infant has become an Internet sensation after her parents shared a clip on Facebook of their daughter seeing clearly for the first time in a pair of little pink eyeglasses.
In the clip, the 10-month old named Piper can be seen sitting at a restaurant booth as her parents put her baby spectacles on her head. Appropriately wearing a pink onesie with “Cutie” scribed across it, Piper then gives off a giant, infectious grin.
The tot’s mom, Jessica Sinclair, wrote beside the video, “Picked up her glasses. Went out to eat and put them on her. Her reaction melts my heart.”
The Bridgetown-based mother of two explained in the comments of the original post that because Piper wasn’t crawling yet, their pediatrician thought corrective lenses may be a good solution.
“A week later we picked up the glasses and she tried them on for a quick second in the office to make sure they fitted properly,” Sinclair told her local news outlet Sunday. “Then we decided to go out to eat and then this was her reaction of her first time being able to see our faces.”
And she hopes her daughter’s viral moment, now with 18 million views, will help spread awareness about the importance of eye health at a young age, according to WKRC.
