It Amazes Me

That I birthed a red head. 

With blue eyes

Recessive genes for the win! 

Before a baby is born we spend so much time wondering and imaging the features, the hair colors, who will she look like?  Its amazing to see the combination that is the result of the genetic lottery when life is created.  Now I just am waiting to see if she inherited the curly hair that both myself and her father have.  If anyone ever doubted our Irish heritage I'll point to Emily!

So much hair! Its amazing what comes out of the gene pool.

I gave birth to an Irish girl too. Red haired and blue eyed, but she didn't start out that way. She was very blond the first 2 years and by the time she was 10 she was all red head! Her daughter looks just like her.

My little red head had blue eyes till about 8 or nine then one day they were hazel just like that!

Your lil one is a cutie for sure.

Isn't it weird how that happens? I have hazel eyes, my husband has brown, but both my girls have gorgeous blue eyes! No redheads though ; )

My niece is French and married an Irishman. ALL three of her children a true redheads with beautiful blue eyes. They're gorgeous. And your Emily is, too. Thanks for sharing her pix.

And who knows maybe it will still change. My daughters eyes didn't find their true color until she was 9 mo. old. Her hair is a beautiful red though. People pay lots of money to attempt that color.
