DP has blue eyes, mine are brown. At the mo DD has the most beautiful blue eyes. She is 13 wks old and I'm hoping they will stay that way as everyone says she looks like me rather than DP.

My dd has had the darkest brown eyes from birth, not every baby's eyes change colour.

DD1 was born with blue eyes but after a week I could see they were likely to change colour to brown. They are a gorgeous dark brown now.

I have green eyes and my DH has yellow ones - our DD was born with the regulation slate blue, and after about 5 months we noticed a little bit of green in the middles - now at 4yo she has hazel eyes, bluish ring on the outside, green middle bit and amber flecks around the pupil.

You might notice a little change around the pupil of your DD's eyes if they are going to change, but not for a good few months yet. Enjoy gazing at your little one!!

I've got brown and DH has blue - DS was born with brilliant blue eyes and still has them 9 months later.

Dd3 was born with blue eyes. They are still blue. She is 11 months.

Ds's eyes went from blue to greyish to the most gorgeous minky brown colour which I hoped he'd keep...but they went brown at about 6 months(his father had bright blue eyes, I have dark brown).
Dd's eyes are blue - gorgeous, gorgeous blue eyes. Her dad has brown eyes...I had hoped her eyes would go brown, but I do think she has stunningly beautiful blue eyes, so...she can keep them grinI'd hate them to go green. Don't like green eyes(exh ugh! syndrome).

good to know that it takes a while - i have had MIL,DH and various telling me that DS's eyes should have changed colour by now if they were going to. Mine are grey/green/blue, DH's are green and DS's are currently blue but heading a little greyer at times. I think they will end up the same as mine.

Solo, my 3rd niece's eyes did the same as your DS, just a bit later - that minky brown colour is fab, isn't it?

thumbwitch. Yes! it was like a brown stoney colour - really beautiful <sigh>
My friends twins eyes changed colour at age 6, which really surprised me(and her)! and my best friends grandson's changed aged 2. I was lead to believe that eyes would be their permanent colour by 6 months, which is obviously not correct - well, not for everyone anyway grin

I think about 2 months after birth.
Sigh. I did love her blue eyes.

Went from gorgeous navy blue to dark brown in about 6 weeks. I knew they'd never last because no one has navy blue eyes in real life.

DS1's eyes gradually faded from a deep petrol blue to the very bright blue they are now.
DS2's eyes were not a very blue blue when he was born and everyone said they would go dark brown. Which they did, within a few weeks iirc.
I love his dark brown eyes. They seem so full of, well, soul and depth. Whereas ds1s eyes are sometimes a bit wishy washy blue!

My eldest dd had blue blue eyes til she was at least 5..they then gradually got greener and in the last few years have got more hazel ( she is 16)
dd2 had blue eyes at birth and kept them til she was about 4 they then went greyer and greyer. if she wears turquoise they look really turquise

dd3 had blue eyes for her first ear then they got a hazel rim around them and now almost have amber speckles in them.

They all have lovely ees but dd1 was gutted to lose hr blue eyes and go green sad

This is an education!
I thought all Caucasian babies were born with blue eyes blush
Ah well if they do change I have the 100's of photos to remind me. grin

Mine are dark brown and DH has grey. Ds's were always very dark almost black when he was born, then went dark brown.

DD were blue from the start and now she is 10 they are changeable from blue to grey.

My Dd is a quarter West Indian, a quarter East Indian and the remainder white English...she is very pale and blue eyed, but her paternal grandma has grey eyes and maternal grandma has green eyes...very odd really, but I guess that's where she gets them from.

DS was born with sparkling, brilliant blue eyes. He's now 6 months and they have been gradually getting darker since day one. They look a little grey now so really have no idea how they will turn out, DH has greeny/brown and I have blue eyes.
