Blue Eyed Beauty

I remember when pregnant with this little girl, wondering what she is going to look like. I expected that she would have blue eyes since Wes and I both do, but I did read that two blue eyed parents could make a brown eyed baby. Mila did indeed inherit our blue eyes. I just saw on an eye doctor guide posted online that in the United States blue eyes are becoming increasingly rare. A hundred years ago about 50% of those born had blue eyes. Seventy years ago about 30% of those born had this trait. Currently only 1 in 6 are born with blue eyes. Luckily for Mila, our culture seems to have a fascination with blue eyes.
