Scarlet Benjamin, 11 months, had a hearing aid fitting at Atlanta Hearing Associates in Milledgeville, Georgia, on January 10.

The baby's adorable reaction to her mother and sister's voices has gone viral with the video racking up more than 1,600 views on Facebook.

Eventually specialists at the Atlanta Hearing Associates in Milledgeville, Georgia, chose to fit Scarlet with hearing aids and on Thursday she got to try them out for the first time.

"Baby sister!" Halie can be heard calling out to Scarlet in the video.

Carol Benjamin has since called the day "one of the absolute best days" of their lives. "She screamed really loud and [later] scared herself".

Scarlet was not able to hear clearly, so her parents were not sure if she would be able to communicate like others.

Scarlet was born 3 months early and suffered a serious infection early on, her mother, Carol Dianne Benjamin, wrote on Facebook. It appears the more Scarlet listens, the more she laughs.
