Jessica Sinclair and Andrew Verdusco’s baby daughter, Piper, proved to be having trouble learning to crawl. After a visit with a pediatrician showed that she was extremely farsighted, she was fitted for corrective prescription glasses.

“A week later we picked up the glasses and she tried them on for a quick second in the office to make sure they fitted properly. Then we decided to go out to eat… and then this was her reaction of her first time being able to see our faces,” Sinclair told Cincinnati’s Local 12 News.

Piper’s loving smile upon recognition of her parents is so simultaneously innocent and powerful that it has captured the eyes and hearts of people across the globe, thanks in part to a boost on the Today Show’s Facebook this morning.
