Punnett and His Squares

I always knew that mine and Chris’ eyes were a similar color, but it wasn’t until I took this picture that I realized that they were exact matches (or at least they were that day):


It is so fascinating to me that those two eyes can produce this:


And that this:IMG_2400

Plus This:

Can produce this:



Luckily, her overly analytical and already geeky personality proves daily that there was definitely no hospital mix-up.

  1. Love it! Love looking at your wee one as well. She's such a cutie. Please save her for one of my boys.

  2. Nice post – Your little one is so cute (and she knows it)

    I hope to be at the next blogger meet up.

    Have a great short week.

  4. Land of Lovings says:

    Love those pics! And I agree with Muthering Heights, those eyes are amazing!

  5. Over Thirty Mommy says:

    To cute, love those curls

  6. Great photos! Roll Tide!!!

  7. Great shots! Gorgeous hair and eyes! Happy WW!

  8. It is amazing isn't it? My hubby and I both have brown eyes yet both our boys have bright blue eyes. Not sure where that came from!

  9. Great photos! Those curls are just adorable!

  10. I can relate I have very little of the same traits as either of my parents. Apparently I look like my dad's mom. I get teases that I am a big recessive gene since I am blue eyed and left handed both of which are recessive.

  11. It is very cool that you and chris have pretty much the same color eyes.

  12. I have often wondered how my green eyes & my husbands dark brown eyes produced our daughters ocean blue eyes! We have yet to come up with an answer. Great post!

  13. Really great photos!

    Great pics! I have brown eyes and Jeremy has green eyes. We have yet to figure out how Jackson ended up with gorgeous baby blues…

    I guess genetics really are a roll of the dice!

    Oooh… those eyes are so beautiful and that hair, what a blessing…

  16. Rachel@just another day in paradise says:

    ok, but now we want to see the mailman : )

    my kids look nothing like their dad. I tell him his genes are weak.

  17. Tyson, Rachel and Kariya says:

    Kariya has really curly hair too…I don't understand how that happens!

  18. Deb - Mom of 3 Girls says:

    Wow, look at those curls – how gorgeous! And the eyes too. :)

    I'm always amazed at the wonders of genetics – crazy, huh!

    Happy WW!

  19. It is crazy how things turn out, isn't it? That's so wacky that your eyes are the perfect match!

  20. Okay, you ALL have gorgeous eyes. And I adore her little curls. I would never want to cut her hair!

  21. She gets her eye color & hair from me, her Godmother of course! What kind of question is that?! :)

  22. Now I want to do this too :) Can I tag myself? LOL

  23. Love this post, I think we were talking about this subject recently. It's so amazing the characteristics that our kids get that we show no trace of and the ones that they don't get that we were sure they would…the Lord works in mysterious ways!
