When did your baby's eyes start turning brown and how long did it take for them to change?

My daughter is 2 1/2 and we finally think her eye color is definite... well maybe. I have (just like many in my family) eyes that are green and gray-blue and look either green or blue depending on mood and shirt color. My daughters eyes are blue on the outer edge, green in the middle and each have a small brown dot that is only noticeable if you look closely. Her eyes began changing before she was 6 months and when the brown spots appeared we thought for sure they would turn brown like daddy's, but they haven't yet.
My son is 4 months and his eyes are already changing. They are green in the middle and blue on the outer edge but both colors are so dark I wouldn't be surprised if they turn brown.
In general the change typically happens before one year but can keep changing up until 3-4 years in some children.
My daughter's settled on their hazle-brown color when she was around 18 months. They first started to darken around 12 months.
My son however, is 3 1/2 months and his eyes are already starting to shift.
Both my husband and I think that our daughter has the blue eye gene from his father and that our son doesn't.
