      We 'heard' you the first time dear.


      • ShakeyTheMoyle

        Lol….was thinking the same thing. She didn't get any response the first time though so…..:S

        • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

          Sigh, Chivettes aren't treated like they should be anymore…


    • jamesb1990

      Yes it really is. :)

  • Bezaile

    Why is she not crying?

    • CaptainStag

      Right at the start of the video the doctor says "it's coming back on." Presumably that means that while the implant might be new, it's not the first time the baby's heard her. But yeah I agree it would be pretty odd if she weren't overwhelmed the first time.

      "It's coming back on" was probably the cue for Dad to make sure he was recording… they were probably both holding him and broke down for a little bit when they first tried it out. Once everyone calmed down, they recorded. I know that if this were one of my children, I'd have one hell of a time not crying from their first reaction.

  • jbone

    simply amazing!

    • P90

      The amazing thing was that he wasn't shocked or disoriented by the sound.

  • Daddy

    Your child can hear you for the first time and all you can say is hi!? How about an ‘I love you’.

    • Paul

    • Ned Ryerson

      You have to be a special kind of fuckwad to troll on a post like this. Go away and don't come back

    • pkinwa

      WTF…"daddy" obviously didn't love you. Jump off a bridge dick.

      • Groggy

        Bridge dicks are terrifying.

    • thomas

      dude grow up. she just spent about 2500 bucks so he could hear. i'm pretty sure she loves him.

  • mith

    That is awesome.

    I’m usually not one for fooling with the balance of things or mother nature…but I have to say that brought a tear to my soul…it was beautiful

    • Kellen

      Fooling with the balance of mother nature? So … back to Spartan exposure? Any baby born with any defect, no point in fixing them, leave them out in the wild?

      People who claim we're diverting the path of nature are idiots, we ARE nature, everything we do is a product of nature. I'm not advocating foolish non-sustainable consumption of resources, but nature gave us the tools to cure the ailments nature dealt us, there's nothing unnatural about cochlear implants or stem cell research. Nature gave us the problem, and a brain to create the solution, it would be unnatural if we didn't solve them.

      • ThatGuy

        The 'balance of nature' is a purely fictional product of human narrative making. Its a non equalibrium system.

      • JDB
