Have your kids eye color changed when they are toddlers?

So I have 2 little blued eyed boys and I have started to noticing that my 3 year old's eyes are starting to get yellow and green around the middle while the outsides remain blue. So I am wondering is it possible for they're eyes to change after they are one years old?

  • If it is going to change it will more than likely do so before one year BUT It can change all the way up to age 5.

  • My son's eyes changed from blue to green sometime between 18-24 months IIRC. My daughter is just over two and hers are still blue.

  • Cute Taco Inspector :) Yes, I can see a slight change in his eyes. I'd have to say no, My child has the exact same color as when he was born and when was a toddler, he is now 7 years of age. I thought that there would be some differences with My eyes being brown and his Father's eyes being green, but nope, he's all me in the eye department.

  • The one year old thing is just general. Their eyes can change throughout their entire life. She was born with blue eyes. Around six months, they went to blue eyes with a yellow ring in the middle. It's very faint in this picture, but on larger versions you can see it clearly.

  • Easter 2011 - Note the eyes are two different colors entirely :

    However, when you generally look at her eyes in person, they typically look brown these days. It's nuts! They're ever-changing! =)

  • My oldest was born with blue eyes then they turned green, now they are greenish-Hazel but I think they will still turn to brown, he is 2. My youngest has had blue eyes since birth and he is 13 months so I think they will stay they are very blue. =)
