Hmmm...I'd heard that all babies were born with blue eyes too. When DD was born, her eyes were a very dark blue (like navy) and they gradually lightened to a sky blue. I'll be interested to see what everyone else says!

My son was born with light blue/greyish eyes. And, they've stayed the same.

I'm pretty curious about this one... we are a blonde haired/blue eyed family, but on dh's side... everyone except him (insert postman joke here) has dark hair and dark eyes. We shall see what this little one looks like....

Our DDs were born with deep brown eyes and stayed that way.

My DS was born with deep deep blue eyes. (they almost looked black!) Now he has brown/hazel eyes. DD was born with baby blues and still has them! I'm curious to see about Charlottes eyes now!!

Both my boys were born with steely grey eyes and now both have brown..oddly though a different shade of brown..I have bright blue eyes and my husbands are dark brown..Im hoping maybe to have a blue eyed girl..LOL..Weird thing though...My sister and her husband both have dark hair and brown eyes..Their first two children are both Blonde with electric blue eyes..No theyre not the mailmans kids but they somehow inherited recessive genes from their paternal grandfather..And my lasted nephew born 3 weeks brown and brown so far..LOL..Genetics don't always win out apparently..LOL

Not sure about the brown. Both of my kids had a deepish blue/gray color at birth. Luke's are bright blue now and Annabelle's are green. Mine are green, daddy's are hazel. It did take awhile (maybe 8 months to a year, can't remember exactly) for Belle's eyes to go green.

I'm no help...our son was born with blue eyes and still has them...this baby will also be blue eyed since my husband and I are both blue eyed, therefore only have our recessive blue genes to pass on.

We are in the same boat. Both DH and I have blue eyes so all of our kids are destined to have baby blues too.


DD 2/8/10

DS 9/12/11

Surprise due 12/25/13

Lets see....I have brown eyes and hubby has hazel.

DS#1 had steel blue eyes and they lightened a little but stayed blue.

DD#1 had deep blue eyes at birth and they stayed that way.

DD#2 had hazel eyes at birth and they stayed that way.

DD#3 had light grey blue eyes at birth and they stayed that way.

DD#4 ?? we will see but I am secretly hoping for brown like me. :)

Funny about mailmans kids. lol My second kiddo has blonde hair and mine is dark brown and hubbys is black. lol however she looks just like my Mom with the blonde hair pale skin and blue eyes.
