The surprised youngster flinches when the device is switched on before cupping her ear and bobbing around in excitement. Ayla's mother sheds a tear as she sees her baby girl bouncing on her lap with a beaming smile. 

Esler familyAyla’s father, brother and sister watch on with excitement as they support the toddler during her big moment. 

The video was shared on Tuesday by Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas.
