Overly opinionated husband?

Just wondering if anyone else has had this experience- My husband and I just bought our first house back in Feb and have been working on decorating each room (not without some arguments along the way because he is SOOO darn opinionated about decorating). Its all worked out fine so far and I LOVE what we've come up with together but now its time to decorate the nursery (we found out we're having a girl). I guess I had it in my mind that since we're having a girl I'd have the lead in choosing colors and themes or whatever.... oh no! He started questioning what I picked out already (he's not mean and critical just, "oh, are you sure you want to put that color of wall decor with the bed spread you picked" things like that- I just take it too personally I guess)

anyway, I guess this has turned into a rant more than a question but I'd love to hear any feedback! haha
