    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

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