  1. 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. 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!

  5. 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…

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

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

    Happy WW!

  8. 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!
