Emma's Eyes

I love my daughter's eyes. They are just so beautiful and expressive. While her emotions don't always show on her lips, they usually show in her eyes. And people are always commenting on how long her eyelashes are and how they curl so perfectly.

They are amazing.

Right now they are that grey-blue that so many infants have. Who knows what color they'll end up being. I have brown eyes. Hubby has blue ones.

A random woman recently said to me, "I think her eyes are going to be brown. What a shame. She would have been so beautiful with dark hair and blue eyes."

Really? Are you kidding me?

Thankfully I had the nerve to say "she'll be beautiful no matter what color her eyes are."

I love Martina McBride's Song "In My Daughter's Eyes." I'll leave you with some lyrics...

In my daughter's eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise and I know no fear
But the truth is plain to see
She was sent to rescue me
I see who I wanna be
In my daughter's eyes


  1. She has beautiful eyes. You are right, she will be beautiful no matter what her eye color will be.

    She's precious! Love the lyrics.

  2. They are beautiful! Teagaan has long beautiful lashes too! I think she got daddy's lashes:-) But, hers were a beautiful grey-blue but changed to hazel and then brown by about 8 or 9 weeks, so maybe Emma's will stay that beautiful color? BTW, I have brown and hubby has blue, so we weren't sure either!

  3. who says that??? how bitchy, i can't believe how well you handled it because my response would have been much more rude. emma will be beautiful with brown eyes or blue... or red or purple or yellow or green!!

  4. Ugh...I hate it when people say stuff like that...even my MIL has made comments about how they're eyes would be better if they stayed blue...(my eyes are MIL's eyes are is she saying our eyes aren't nice too???) That's just awful...and I think you probably could have said something like was nice enough but would have put the lady in her place!!

    She really does have beautiful eyes...and beautiful eyelashes too!!! Beautiful post momma! :o)

  5. p.s. I guess I read your comment DID put that lady in her place. *phew* :o) You go girl! :o)

  6. She has stunning eyes! They are simply perfect and that lady is a moron.
