  • It takes about 6 mos for the eye color to change to the permanent color. Most babies are born with blue eyes.

  • probably not, but it is possible that both of you have the recessive gene for blue eyes. But sicne brown eye is dominate, your childs eyes will most likily darken over time.

  • they might. my dh has brown eyes, i have one brown eye and one hazel eye (yes 2 different color eyes), my mom has green eyes and my dd has the brownest eyes i have ever seen. my dd has blond hair like mine and my dh has brown hair but my ds has red hair and the bluest eyes.
