"Don't it make my brown eye blue"

Kevin has blue eyes and I have green, so there were many times while I was pregnant that we would wonder which color Preston would get. They say all babies have blue eyes and then they change later, which was true for me, but when P was born, they were so dark blue, they were almost black. Over the next few weeks, as the blueish color developed, so did something else- half of his right eye is BROWN! We actually think it's pretty cool. You can make it out better in pictures than in person, partially because of the lighting and partially because he won't sit still long enough to let you get a good look. There are several pictures you can click on to enlarge in previous posts where you can tell, but I captured a few good ones this week, too. We've even joked that we could make some money off him by renting him out to the circus along side the bearded lady and the lobster claw girl. I can hear it now...."Step right up! See for yourself- the marvelous little freaky-eyed-wonder!"

In his bear-bunting from Aunt Heather:

Ready to go!

"Mom, don't show 'em my eye!"

I think he's beautiful and perfect in every way. I've never seen a cuter baby except for his mother. Now about the brown/blue eye....I think it's no doubt a sign...a genius....political prowess....impending greatness of some magnitude. I'll be the first to remind you when he's president, or winner of the Nobel Prize.

That is amazing! I have never seen anything like it! How cool! I wonder if it will stay that way? Well I am looking forward to seeing you both on Wednesday. What a special, unique little boy you have!
