This little doll is 11 months old, and is saying new words every week! 😍 We put together a little video of her talking, and it’s pretty cute. She says so many things, but every time I say “Ivy, say ‘Mama!’” — it’s complete silence. 😂 Makes me laugh every time I watch it. Link is in my bio! YouTube.com/JessaSeewald
