Watch: Toddler laughs hysterically at new ability to hear

Dylan hears for first time

Dylan seems to have a pretty good attitude, and he’s not even two years old.

India Lipton and Shirley Lesser posted video of their now-23-month-old son’s reaction when he could hear clearly for the first time after getting new hearing aids.

The caption with the YouTube video says Dylan battled a dangerous infection for more than three months after he was born 11 weeks premature. 

He had hydrocephalus and underwent more than a dozen brain surgeries. 

When he developed moderate hearing loss, Dylan was fitted with hearing aids in December 2013.

He seems to like them.   

“He’s been through a lot in his 23 months,” the YouTube post said, “but obviously his laughter is infectious!”
