After she had been wearing the aids for a few weeks, Mr Addison decided to share her beautiful reaction with the world.
“It’s absolutely phenomenal,” Mr Addison told British newspaper, theEvening Standard. “You use these hearing aids and it’s like the lights have been switched on.
“As a consequence, she is immediately more alert, happy, and can hear her mum’s voice, which is absolutely delightful.”
In the video, Georgina’s mother Louise, 33, can be heard talking to her little girl.
“OK so I just turned your hearing on. Should we say hello to everybody? Should we say hello?”
Georgina had a big grin on her face followed by a loud squeal.
“Oh that’s a very loud hello,” Ms Addison said as baby Georgina continued to smile and laugh.
