Eye color - Page 2

post #21 of 26
Blue is recessive, not dominant, which is why you'll always have blue eyed biological kiddos if you and your DH both have blue eyes. If your eyes are blue, then all you have is blue-eye genes. If you have any other color eyes, you could have blue-eye genes hiding behind more dominant browns, greens, etc.
Greens and hazels are more dominant than blue, but less dominant than brown.
If either parent has brown eyes, any eye color is possible.
What's highly improbable (but anomalies do happen) is for a pair of blue-eyed folks to have a baby with any color eyes other than blue.

DD1 and I have somewhat changeable eye colors. They're mostly blue, but they sometimes look more greenish, and sometimes look more greyish. I've never figured out what causes the change (weather? food? hydration? mood?), but I think it's neat.

We call those "mood ring eyes". My sister has them, and her husband jokes that if he comes home and she has green eyes, he knows he is in trouble.

Hehe- I knew I was in big trouble as a kid if my dad's eyes were bright green. Mine are blue/grey... unless I have been crying, then they are green/blue. My kiddos all have very blue eyes- but Asher's are still very dark.

Henry's appear to be pretty light
Mine are hazel/brown and dp's are sort of light blue/green/hazel?? Ds1 has hazel but a quarter of one eye is brown. Ds2 has chocolately brown eyes and golden blond hair. I have a sister with bright blue eyes and blond hair, so it's possible Henry could have lighter/blue eyes. His hair seems to be oging light too, but he's got my olive skin. Very handsome if you ask me

my husband is 1/2 half italian. he has dark brown. his mom is full italian w/ dark brown, and his dad has blue.

i have blue, from my one green and one brown-eyed parents.

charlie's are blue, not cloudy at all, with a dark blue ring around the outside (like becky's, ivy)

but dr. sears says they can change up to 2 yrs! i hope charlie keeps the blue, they go so nicely w/ his red hair

poor daddy can't get a break from the paternity test jokes

My 2 older dds were both born with brown eyes. Dh's eyes are brown and mine are blue. Dd3 was born with grey/blue eyes. They haven't changed yet. I'm hoping for blue this time. Although, my other two dd's are always getting comments about how beautiful their eyes are as they are SUPER dark brown.
