My eyes are really dark blue, Dh's are dark brown. My oldest child's bio dad has green eyes.
DS-7: color-changing (green/brown/dark gray)
DD-2: color-changing (blue/green/brown/dark gray)
And my 10mo seems to have color-changing eyes as well though they're mostly blue now.

DD1 - blue, an ocean-blue color.
DS1 - bright, blazing blue like a springtime sky.
DD2 - ocean-blue with bright green splotches (not flecks - big spots)
(their dad has the blazing blue eyes)

DS2 - brown like strong coffee, deep and wise
DD3 - dark chocolate brown, almost black
DS3 - hazel... light swirling brown towards the middle, green with gold around the edges, changing with his moods
(their dad has the dark, dark brown eyes)

Mine are glaring Irish green with gold flecks throughout. I wanted one, just one, with my green eyes, but that's a recessive gene so I'm lucky to have gotten the hazel-eyed one, what with his dad having such dark brown. Maybe they'll change to green later on... I've been told mine started out light green-gold, and were labeled as "hazel." Maybe, maybe!

Wow, what a lot of blue-eyed babies around here!

My daughter's are brown, like her mom & dad's. When she was born, I thought they looked slightly blue-ish brown, but they've been really brown for a long, long time.

Both her dad and I are mixed hispanic and white, and we both have 1 parent with brown and 1 not. So, it's possible she could have had non-brown eyes, but she didn't.

I have dark brown eyes and my daughter has the bluest eyes ever. The pediatrician told us at the 2 wk visit that her eyes would stay blue, and here they are still bright blue at 5 1/2 yrs.

Both my daughters have blue eyes.

Mine are dark brown. Dh's are...well I'm not sure. They are kinda greeny blue but he has a ring of orangey brown around the iris. The greeny blue changes to bluey green occasionally and the orangey brown gets darker. It's weird.

Dark brown, almost black eyes. My husband has dark brown eyes (not as dark as my son's) and I have light brown eyes.

My oldest has hazel (green/brown) eyes like his dad, and my littlest has dark brown/black eyes like his dad. Guess my medium brown eye genes are weak!

Brown, like Mommy's.

I'm surprised blue is the majority here, considering it's supposed to be the recessive trait. Very interesting!!

They both had dark blue eyes when born. Abigail's have turned a darker grey, Sophia's are still blue.

I have brown eyes and never expected one, much less, two children with blue eyes.
