Baby Sees Dad For First Time Wearing Adorable New Glasses

A mother captured the special moment her nine-month-old son saw his father for the first time with his new glasses.
The greeting was made all the more special because US Air Force captain Brandon Caldwell was returning from a two-month deployment to Antarctica, and was worried young Reagan would not remember him.
Reagan’s mother, Amanda, filmed as her husband sang “patty-cake” with their son, who she told ABC7 was “loving having daddy back home”. The family lives in upstate New York.
She added: “This was the hardest deployment yet by far and you can see how hard it was for Brandon to be away from Reagan by the emotion he showed when he finally had him in his arms again.”
The baby needs glasses because he contracted a condition called Group B Strep some time after he was born, and ended up in intensive care with meningitis and sepsis, ABC7 reported. His eyesight was damaged. But Reagan is making good progress thanks to physical, occupational and speech therapy.
