Today I’m writing a letter to my baby as part of a sponsored post for JOHNSON’S® and Socialstars #johnsonspartners #SoMuchMore
Everywhere we go, people remark that you are the most well-behaved baby they’ve seen.
They don’t have to tell me; I know.
Honestly, it seems that you know, too. You have a serious, almost skeptical-seeming side that’s been there since the day you were born.
You humor us all, though, bursting into fits of giggles and smiles whenever we do something funny. You have a way with people that is unmatched, even by your charming flirt of a father.
Speaking of dad, he is a HUGE help with you. See, you have this natural desire to be in contact with myself or him at all times. I think it’s that skeptical side of you, slightly unsure about the strangeness of the world. You like reassurance from a familiar being.
As contemplative as you are…when you commit to loving someone, you do it wholly and without reserve.
You are an example of how I want to love.
You and your dad cuddle on our huge California King bed as we groggily rise from being up every two hours through the night. I wash you – oftentimes in the morning, because I’m spent at the end of a long day with three boys – with JOHNSON’S® Baby Moisture Wash & Lotion with Vanilla Oatmeal. They use oatmeal and vanilla to nourish your baby-soft skin that’s usually pressed up against me, burrowed into my chest at night.
When nobody’s looking, I grab your JOHNSON’S® baby oil gel with shea & cocoa butter. I dab a little on a cotton ball and swipe it over my face, removing the liner that I put on to brighten the look of my eyes each morning.
This sleepless life has made me a minimalist, and I’m glad you share your products with me. It’s a trick my grandma passed down – using baby oil for makeup removal – and I smile and think of her while I do it.
Then I swoop you up and lay back down, hoping to squeeze in a few more snuggles or maybe even a bit more shuteye. I feel so assured knowing that you – my affectionate, intense little baby! – you’ll float through life on a cloud of cuddles from your family who loves you.
