Shari Joy McMahon's mother Pamela is deaf, and so is her young daughter, Aria. In a ridiculously sweet video McMahon posted on Facebook, grandmother teaches granddaughter some sign language. The video has gone totally viral, having been watched almost 750,000 times. Little Aria clearly doesn't yet understand what Pamela is trying to say, but she certainly is entranced with her grandmother.
Check out the video here.
According to the caption on the Facebook video, Aria was nine weeks old when this video was taken. She's too young to know what she's doing, but it does look like she's making some arm and hand movements, trying to sign back to her grandmother.
Speaking to Scary Mommy, McMahon said, “Aria and I have moved out of state so they haven’t seen each other since the video. They have a special bond and my mom misses her so much.”
Aw, I bet. That is among the sweetest little faces I've ever seen. Hopefully they'll still get to see each other often, because that is a real strong bond of love happening there.
