shocking newborn/baby traits

Posted by   + Show Post

My children are black, asian and hispanic. me and dad have very dark hair and eyes and so does our oldest. when my youngest was born she also had a head full of really dark hair, but she had the blondest eyelashes ever, lol. it was so crazy looking. they didnt last long. i'm pretty sure it wasnt even a week before they were gone. did anyone get a shock like that when baby came?

ah, so he has the family thing going on. it skipped your sis and went to him, lol.

Quoting MommyLehr:

He is so cute! I love him!! But it's so strange. His will probably change my sister (his mom) was thine only kid out of my parents 5 kids born with dark hair. The rest of us were born blonde and over the years it just got dark

how cute. i can only imagine the silly questions you'll get as she gets older, if you havent gotten any already. "did you try to dye your 5mo's hair!?!?" lol.

I'm white and my husband is black. All of our kids were born light, which I didn't really expect. They are all darker than me now!! :)

my younger cousin has the same thing going on, but she was born with her colors.


Quoting amyrw:

No my shock came about a year after my son was born. He was born with blue eyes. Then right around a year old his right eye turned brown and the left stayed blue. He has heterochromia.


That is awesome!!

my kids are mixed too and i expected them to look a certain way at birt,h but i didnt expect them to keep the texture of hair they both kept.. its totally different from mine.  i expected a mix. its even finer than their dads.

this is me and my oldest. not the best image of her hair but an obvious difference, lol.
