My daughter’s  changed until she was 2. I think hazel green n brown seem to take the longest. Probably due to more melanin.

My husband has green eyes. My eyes are dark brown. My son just turned 2 and his eyes are brown in the middle and green/gray on the outter rim. And his right eye has more brown in the middle than his left. They’ve been this way since he was probably 1, so I’m assuming they’re not going to change anymore!

They may get lighter… most light  Caucasian babies are born with milky, denim blue eyes. Eventually they change, either becoming light blue (which seems to occur faster), or a shade of green/hazel/light brown . 

 

My daughter’s stayed dark blue for a year, and lightened  up until she was 2. She ended up keeping a dark blue limbal ring with mossy green/hazel eyes. 

My son’s changed faster, by a year he had beautiful honey greenish light brown. 

 

It is fascinating to  watch. Adults brown pigment often lightens as we age due to uv.

My mom states that my eye colour used to be dark blue, then it changed to light blue when I was a toddler. In the primary school I started having green, by the end it was mostly green and some blue.

Then I started getting yellow and orange around the center. I’m turning 26 now, and my eyes are still evolving.

mrsnnn3 :  Your son’s eyes sound like mine!  They were dark blue when I was a baby and mostly looked brown when I was younger.  Google central heterochromia – that’s what mine are and how your son’s sound.  It’s surprisingly common!

When I was born, my eyes were black. On my birth certificate, I was labeled as a black-eyed baby. There was no evidence of brown, blue, anything. My eyes continued to be black until I was almost 7 years old, at which time it slowly turned into a very dark brown. My drivers license says I have brown eyes, but it’s such a dark brown that many people still say I have black eyes.

Demon baby.

my daughter was born with blue eyes and they lightened a bit in the first few months, but haven’t changed in at least a year. She’s 16 months now. My eyes are brown, Darling Husband has blue eyes. My little brother was blue eyed until he was three and then they changed to green, so I guess you never know.

megm1099 :  same same same!

 

at 25 now my eyes have lightened significantly to a ‘dark brown’ but MUCH lighter than they were when I was a baby.

Although, ‘black-eyed baby’ sounds so metal to have on your birth certificate, I’m just Brown ahaha.

 

I was born with Black Eyes(black hair), My sister 3 years later was born with green/hazel eyes(mousey brown hair), and my brother 6 years later with the bluest eyes you’ll ever see.(BLONDE hair!)

I joke my mum ran out of printer ink as she had each of us.

going2bmrsc :  Ran out of printer ink lol I love that!  My parents both have dark dark brown (almost black) hair and popped out a blonde. Genetics are so fascinating!

going2bmrsc :  HAHA That’s so funny! Main reason I was put with black on my birth certificate was because without genetic testing it couldn’t be determined what color eyes I would end up with. My mom has light brown eyes and my dad has dark blue eyes, so it could have been anything. 🙂
