The Countdown…Day 31. Eye colour

28th March 2012 Day 31

It was obvious she was going to be such a Daddy’s girl.
She was very much like him too,(as are her little sisters).
Here, the picture doesn’t really show exactly what she was doing, looking back I wish I had videoed her.
But she was proving just how much of a fidget she was, head facing us, then the other, then back again.
Feet pushing up, bottom in the air – we were unsure exactly what she was doing. Almost trying to roll over. She did at one point get onto her side.
Finally one of my favourite photos, and actually one of the last ones with her eyes open.
I have a bit of a struggle with her eyes, of course, that comes with what happened later on.
But the colour of them.
My older two children have blue eyes.
Of course different dad, but I too have blue eyes.
When it came to her little sisters one has brown eyes like her dad, the other has my eye colour.
Not knowing what my own child’s eye colour would have been is quite hard to think about.
Something small, but so great in importance, of knowing every aspect of your baby.
An obvious every day one, yet I can’t answer.
