WATCH: A deaf baby's joyful reaction as he hears for the first time.

We’ve just got something in our eye… we swear.

Nine-week-old Elijah Cook lived the first two months of his life without being able to hear the nuturing voices of his family.

Elijah’s father, Jason Cook, is deaf in one ear, and all four of Elijah’s grandparents are completely deaf.

Despite their family history, Elijah’s mother Ahavah and her partner Jason, lived in hope that their baby would be able to hear.

But baby Elijah failed three hearing tests after his birth and confirmed his parents worst fears: Elijah was completely deaf in his left ear and had very limited hearing in his right.

Last month, he was fitting with hearing aids that meant he could finally hear his mother and father speak to him.

And that incredible moment was captured on video..

Post continues after video. 

Ahavah said when the hearing aids were fitted she was overcome with emotion the “first time she saw him blink”.

“I was trying really hard not to cry. I didn’t want him to see me cry. I was trying hard to keep it together and just talk to him,” she explained.

Elijas’s father Jason said he just wants Elijah’s life to be as normal and carefree as possible.

“Every parent wants the best for their kid. I just want to be able to equip him to handle life’s challenges,” Jason said. “I want to make sure he can overcome them and succeed,” he explained.
