He’s 2 years old, and until now, baby Cooper has never heard his mother’s voice. It looks like the toddler was just equipped with a cochlear implant, a device that restores hearing to patients with damaged inner-ear hair cells. Watch him freak out — and try to keep yourself from filling up with rainbows.

I’m proud to share a name with this kid.
