Knox's Nursery

Some may know the story, but we had originally intended not to find out the (Knox's) gender. Well at 28 weeks we went to the doctor for a routine appointment.  Our normal doctor was out so we had to see another doctor in our practice and this other doctor slipped the gender... or what we thought was the gender. This doctor walked into the room, looked at our chart, then walked up to me and asked "so y'all are having a girl right?"

Whatttttt, who says that??!!!

To make a long story short, we decided it would be wise to confirm the gender with our normal doctor since we thought the baby could be a girl, but were not positive.  At our next appointment we checked with our doctor and found out that we were actually having a boy.  We were both so surprised based on our previous appointment.  Since we found out at 30 weeks and had already registered for all gender neutral items, we decided that we wanted to keep the gender a surprise.  Most of our family and friends were aware of the story and were dying to know the gender.  It was so hard to not slip, but we thankfully didn't (a few friends may have figured it out) and everyone was surprised when Andrew walked out of the hospital room to deliver the news.

The funny thing about our nursery is that I picked out all the bedding, when I thought we were having a girl.  I tend to like more neutral/masculine colors, and figured I would add a bit of pink once the baby arrived.   Below you will find pictures of the nursery, along with details about its contents.
