The Chicago version (pictured above) has spaces to answer the “cost of a ride on the “L” or when baby “enjoyed the first snowfall” or the preference for type of pizza and, of course, Cubs […]
We moved into our house when our first son was three months old. Gender, obviously, was already established but I wanted to decorate a nursery that would also work for our subsequent kids, be they boy or girl.
