There are only three eye colors

23 Jan


Green, blue and brown. That is it. So, all you out there who have hazel, grey, green hazel, blue hazel, amber or violet eyes- you really have some variation of the first three. Kerry has blue eyes and I have always said mine were hazel. Mine vary between golden brown and green depending on the day or outfit or amount of time in the sun or if I have in my contacts (and no, they are not colored). Again, Kerry’s are definitely without question always a bright blue. Both his parents have blue eyes. My mom has blue eyes, dad has brown and my sister has blue eyes with brown spots. Leigh’s spotted eyes are called Heterochromia Iridis (example in picture above) and is related to people who have two different colored eyes (Heterochromia Iridium) and it just happens. So, why am I telling you all this? Well, I got this link from a co-worker today about determining eye color in your child and this is how it all started. Green, blue and brown are the only options for eye color. I did not know what to pick! Here are the two results for Baby V’s probable eye color with both me having brown and green eyes.

With me having brown eyes she is 50% likely to have brown, 40% likely to have blue and 10% likely to have green.


And, with me having green eyes- it is a 50/50 split between blue and green.


Also, not all babies are born with blue eyes but there eye color does not usually become permanent until around nine months so we are going to have to wait and see.
