Just about every newborn I've seen had blue eyes with only a few with brown. Most of those blue eyed kids now have brown or hazel eyes with the odd one retaining their original blue colour.

I saw many children with blue or grey eyes when they born and few months after, but then changed. Even my cat had blue-grey eyes when she was little, now she has green eyes! :)

I was born with blue, they didn't go brown until I was about 5 months (wish they would have stayed blue), so were two of my brothers. One was born with dark brown eyes, they then went blue, green, purple for three years and have settled on hazel since he was 9. Don't ask why they were purple for three years, five eye doctors couldn't figure it out. They thought it was lighting at first but they tried all lights setting available and they still stayed purple.

My eyes were perfectly blue when I was small, but later they turned rather grey (when I was about eight). My grandmother, who is a huge fan of blue eyes, then claimed that I had evil eyes, which, as she suggested, was a sign of possession by the devil.

I was the only one in my family born with black eyes (they are now brown). Everyone else in my family was born with blue eyes.

my sons eyes are so dark you can hardly see his pupils

My first baby, whom I lost, had almost a coal gray set of eyes. My 12 year old had more of a medium slate gray, and his eyes are hazel.

My daughters eyes changed color drastically when she was 8 years old, they went from a very pale blue to the same color as mine which is green. One day they just started getting paler and paler till they went totally grey, a process which took several weeks. The color started to come back after that and returned with the new color. It was really weird.

I didn't need to watch video-- buffering and the ads leading up to it--just to find out something you easily could have written. It was only two sentences!

For myself, I have found this to be true. 21 days exactly. Thanks for sharing.

Sounds delicious! Thanks
