Brown Eyes Blue

Next week I'm taking Eli on his first airplane trip. I'm traveling by myself and I'm freaking terrified slightly apprehensive but in this house we feel the fear and do it anyway so stiff upper lip and all that. I ordered a Lands End Diaper backpack and if more bags can't make everything better then that's a world I don't want to live in.

We are taking this trip to visit Mr. E's family - it is really important to me that Eli meets all his aunts and uncles and great aunts and uncles and great grandparents and a whole slew of friends of various stripes all of whom have been so supportive of us and have been incredibly generous and who we just couldn't do without. I figure it's the least I can do - let all these people who love us and support us meet this kid they've been so excited about since day one.

However this is also the obnoxiously good looking family and all of Mr. E's siblings, in addition to being smart and skinny and having good hair, have big blue blue eyes. And I hope this doesn't happen but really. If one more person gazes down at Eli and says "Look at those big blue eyes" and then glances sneakily at me and says hopefully "I wonder if they'll stay that way" I might have to lose my shit.

I HAVE BIG BROWN EYES AND I THINK THEY'RE NICE.

The End.

OOO how cool, off to visit the family! And yep, get used to twits commenting on his eyes... it will never end. I should know, having 4 kids with blue eyes, and 4 with hazel... can't win! Mine are blue, but who cares about mine??? boo hoo

Oh forgot, there is no way his eyes will change colour now... they are blue for good.

Babies eyes can change color? Add that to the list of things I did not know. Good thing you're the mom and not me :)

Myles' eyes were dark blue for about a week, then they turned hazel. I don't think it will be long before they turn brown, but we get the same question all the time. "What color do you think his eyes will be?"
Dude, how would we know?
