aubreeleann03: Thank you! ID’s and medical records are exactly why I was wanting feedback, haha! I don’t think green-blue-hazel (which is what I consider them to be) is an option to choose.
And now that you’ve posted a picture, I completely agree with you that “tie-dye” is 100% the most accurate choice!

My daughter and son had cornflower blue eyes as babies. My genes dominated. My son kept his eye color, but my daughter’s changed to a light blue green before her 3rd birthday. My guess is that your daughter’s eyes may change a bit, right now I’d say they are blue.

piperpoppy: Gorgeous eyes! I even see a pale-grey in your eyes, which I think is awesome. I tried to convince my husband for a while that our daughter’s eyes were grey (because I thought it was so cool), but he completely disagrees and thinks they’re green.

Interesting! These look just like my eyes and I always considered them to be blue until recently when I had an eye exam and the optician asked “What color do you mark on your driver’s license?” I was confused because I thought blue was obvious, but she said she’d consider them to be hazel.

I say blue-green. I don’t see enough brown in them to consider them hazel IMO.

Cory_loves_this_girl: That’s why “hazel” always confuses me! She definitely doesn’t have any brown. Any part of her iris that isn’t on the difficult-to-decide blue/green spectrum, is gold and amber. Really no brown to account for at all.

AZ_April_Showers: They are definitely hazel. Hazel doesn’t mean brown, it means a mix – which is exactly what baby has!

I would have said hazel. I mean, it has brown in it so that’s why I think hazel. It might be more of a blue-green than straight green but hazel because it has brown.

The funny part is how dark they look from far away, so people are especially surprised when they get a close look:
I think if people ask me, I’ll say they are blue-green, but when it comes time to fill out forms, I think it looks like hazel might be the way to go.

What a beautiful color, reminds me of stormy sea 🙂
Eye color may change until the baby is about 3 yrs old. It seems very likely that your baby will have green eyes. I had a similar eye color as a baby and I have bright green eyes with tiny golden specks.
Even though both parents have brown eyes, there’s a 20% chance that your baby will have green eyes.

AZ_April_Showers: Thank you, I see the gray a little too. I have green (since blue-green is not an option!) on my driver’s license because I don’t really see enough brown to call them hazel. Although they aren’t really a true green either. Why can’t there just be an “Other, fill-in-the-blank” option?

Lovely eyes whatever you want to call the color! 🙂

Hazel isn’t in the poll, but that is my vote.
