grey blue eyes

While Brad slept this morning, Norah and I had some mommy/daughter time.  I am mesmerized by her eyes everyday.  I prayed for a blue eyed girl throughout my entire pregnancy.  I know most babies are born with blue eyes & that there is plenty of time for them to change color, but I really think they'll stay blue {at least I continue to pray for that anyway}.  My mom had the most beautiful blue eyes.  They looked like the ocean.  Even during her last few weeks in the hospital, all of the doctors and nurses would compliment her on them.  I see my mom frequently in Norah's eyes.  I know my mom would just melt over Norah like we do.  And of course, Norah's daddy has some pretty amazing blue eyes, too.  I seem to get lost in them everyday.

Norah's eyes are this amazing dark slate grey blue.  I've never seen eyes this color.  In the past couple of weeks the inner part of her eye has gotten a little lighter {hence why I'm thinking she'll stay a blue eyed girl}.  There's nothing wrong with my brown eyes, but there's just something that gets me about  those baby blues.


Before running out today, I asked Brad to dress Norah... he grabbed this dress out of her closet:

I made this dress months ago and would have never thought it would fit her yet since the tutorial was for 0-3 months and she is still in newborn sized clothes.  I'm so glad Brad grabbed it because I'm not sure how much longer she'll get to wear it {btw, when did my little girl get so big??}  I've come to the conclusion today that I need to make one of these dresses in every size and color.  She looked too cute in it!  And then I need to find the time to make diaper covers to match and to hide those silly Pampers!!


  1. OMGosh Kalen, Norah is looking so beautiful! She is so cute in her dress and Brad did good! I just love her expressions, they crack me up! So cute..
    Norah's hair is getting lighter maybe she has some of the Krueger color in her :-) Keep the pictures coming we can't get enough!

  2. That's funny... we thought it was getting darker! Remember how light her hair was in the front? It was just peach fuzz... you really had to look to see that she even had any. I guess time will tell...

  8. I know this post is old, but I'm wondering if your little girl's eyes stayed blue or turned a different color. My baby's eye color looks identical to hers and I Am very curious. Thanks!
