But for good reason.
The new Johnson’s & Johnson’s TV ad succeeds again in making the sentimental mom tear up. See for yourself here.
I am feeling extra sentimental today. It is after all, the little rascal’s 6th month. It seems like yesterday when we took her home from the hospital. So small my arms looked strange and loose around her. Now it feels kind of funny when I rock her to sleep at times; she’s grown twice her size and makes that giddy, shy smile when I do rock her and sing her lullabyes.
Darling, only six months, you may be. But to me, what a huge step that is. From a thump in the tummy, you have grown into a handful – one who bangs and throws things around without abandon and who’s already half-cruising in the tub. Sabi ko nga lagi sa ‘yo, magagaya ko sa tatay mo, mauubos ang buhok ko sa sobrang likot at kulit mo.
Every month you do something that blows us away. See, you can even express yourself through words by now. Ami, Mama, Baba. “Em!” when you want to nurse to sleep. I think I’m gonna have to prepare myself for daily calls from a principal for having such a tattler.
But for better or for worse, you are my little girl. At habang kaya ko, sisiguraduhin ko, walang makakasakit sa ‘yo. Happy six months, bata!
