If your kid's eyes changed from blue to brown, was the process gradual and when was it set in stone?

I honestly can't tell you what color my youngest's eyes are. When people ask I say "miscellaneous?" lol. She was born with dark blue eyes like my other two daughters, both of which still have blue eyes (except middle has a tiny ring of green in them), and at around 4 months they started to change to green, but a very dark green like emerald maybe or jade. I asked at her 6 month check up (yes, I actually asked my doctor what color her eyes are) and she said she wasn't sure, they kind of looked hazel. She's now 8 months and they look like a light brown, honey colored maybe. Her cousin who is 3 had that color as a baby and now her eyes are chocolate brown. Daddy has brown, almost black eyes, which means nothing because our middle has blue eyes still at almost 2 years old. Just curious, when is the eye color set? And, if their eyes changed to brown, when did it start happening?

  • Ive heard all kinds of age ranges but all being under 2. BUT the thing is I grew up with blue eyes most of my childhood and around middle school they changed from Blue to greenish brown. I'm really not sure what to think about that. My eyes change shades also but have pretty much stayed a greenish brown now.
