There are no seven wonders in the eyes of a child. There are seven million. - Walt Streightiff
Steel gray. Dark blue. Hazel. Blue with brown specks. We argue amongst ourselves every day about little Viking's eyes. They are shifty, glistening little marbles that seem to look different depending on the light and his clothing.
Serious little eyes.
My eyes are orange-brown. They didn't turn brown until I was two years old. Kev's eyes are a turquoise blue with a lovely dark blue ring around the edge. Dreamy.
If Baby K's eyes turn Hazel (which is a green and brown mix, by the way), I'll have one kid with brown, one with blue, and one with green!
I'm enjoying watching them discover the world. I love to see them light up when he wrinkles his nose with a happy grin.
Matthew 6:22 - The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light.
These collages show three versions of the same photos. The photo at bottom left is the original shot - straight out of the camera. The photo on the bottom right has only the eye-pop action by Pioneer Woman done on it. It is like putting sunshine on your eyes so you can see them glow. [I promise, I'm not stalking her or anything. I just like her Photoshop actions, alright?!] The top photo on both is has been "colorized" and "boosted". I just love that suburban, Edward Scissorhands, retro cream color.
Looks great with his gray-blue-brown-hazel ... err, lovely eyes. Doesn't it?
So... tell me... what color do you think they will turn out to be? Let me know in this little poll:
