Eye Spy


These are my eyes.  I grew up in a family of light-eyed people.  All greens and blues.  My best friend in elementary school had these dark chocolate brown eyes.  I loved them!

 Later, I married a brown-eyed boy.  When we started having children, I figured they would all be brown-eyed since it’s dominant.  I was so excited! 

EB – Baby Number 1.
WD – Baby Number 2
JD – Baby Number 3
AG – Baby Number 4
I couldn’t believe it!  Four kids and not one of them had the decency to have brown eyes!  I guess they’ll have to redeem themselves with brown-eyed grandchildren!
(These pictures are from January 2008.  I think I should do another set just to see how much their eyes have changed.  I don’t think I want to redo mine though, because I’m sure my eyes have aged some in the past 5 years.   I don’t want to know!!)

  1. This is the coolest thing ever! Your eyes are beautiful. I guess everyone wants what they don’t have! 🙂 I was born with brown eyes but now they’ve lightened up to what I’m guessing is hazel. I’ve always loved blue and green eyes. Hubby has blue eyes and Mom has green. Your kids definitely took after you! It would be fun to see the difference in everyone since back then.

    • Thanks! I just knew AG would be my brown-haired, brown-eyed baby since she was the last one. Of course I loved her just like she was, but I just couldn’t believe that not even one out of four was brown-eyed! I may just have to take those updated pics. They’d be fun to have!
