If cuteness was a superpower, it’d be one that all babies possess because all babies have to do is flash one of their nonjudgmental, innocent smiles to make other people feel happy. David Reppond, a filmmaker who lives in Seattle, was able to capture how a baby’s smile can transform the atmosphere in the room when he filmed his infant son Leo.

David filmed his wife putting on Leo’s glasses for the first time. When Leo has the glasses on, he looks around. Then his mother says, “Hi, honey” and Leo looks at her and grins from ear to ear because he is able to see her clearly for the first time. David said of the interaction, according to the Daily Mail, that "cuteness went through the roof" and there "wasn’t a dry eye in the house." David even became emotional while filming. “I had some issues holding the camera because I was crying so much,” he said.

Leo has oculocutaneous albinism, a hereditary disorder that, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, affects the coloring of the hair, eyes, and skin. One of the effects of oculocutaneous albinism is that children with the disorder typically cannot see very well. Watch the video below to see baby Leo smile at his parents.
