Silly question about eyelash development...

DD has got really long eyelashes, she's 21 months and they are about 1cm long. They'd look great on me (all thick and long and dark) envy. But, will they grow in proportion with her or do they stay pretty much same length from now on?

They are beautiful but I'm slightly worried that they could become freakish if they grow any longer.

<I did say it was a silly question>

Thanks Ruby, I know babies heads are disproportionally large but there is no way DDs head is fully grown at 21 months.

I was wondering if they'd keep growing in proportion with her head/eyes.

I seem to remember hearing somewhere that eyes don't grow hmm

not sureb how true it is, but if it is true then surely eyelashes won't grow either?

I'm not sure if eyes grow or not TBH, surely they must do a bit?

I guess it's going to remain a mystery, but there are worse things than over long eyelashes...

The eyeball doesn't grow, it is full size when born, which is why babies pupils take up so much of their eyes.

Not sure whether the eyeholes (IYKWIM) grow or not - maybe not much hence big appealing child eyes?

I could be making all that up BTW grin

Thanks Spam, I guess we'll just have to wait and see grin
