Mariana Iranzi’s New “Hola Hello” Album Review {Giveaway + Video}

  My bilingual 19 month-old daughter has two new favorite words.

We watched Dreamwork’s newly release family movie a few weeks ago and both her and her prima who was visiting from El Salvador laughed out loud the whole time. This was great to see since my girlRead More ...
