Koa: Now with Eyes Open!
I am hoping for a brown eyed baby - but so far that's not looking so promising. They say babies eye color can't be determined until around 6 months and, even after that, it can change over the course of several years. I asked the pediatrician at the hospital whether he thought Koa's eyes were "light" or "dark" and he said "dark". He's seen more baby eyes than I have, but I'm still not convinced these eyes aren't light.
My older sister and I both have light blue eyes, which is weird since our parents have dark eyes (granted, my mom's are hazel). People used to think we were twins based on this feature alone (we really don't look alike in any other way). Light eyes are more of a commodity here in Hawaii, but I still think brown eyed boys are so handsome! And it would be a nice change of pace to see something a little different around the house.
