I am pale and her father is Chocolate..She will be beautiful either way!:)

You can have children of any shade with your husband from looking absolutely white to darker than their father, just depends on how genes would work. Your daughter can change or stay as she is now. Everything is different for every child. My daughter even has 2 different hair types at the same time. The only thing I've never heard of - kids would get lighter, but maybe that happends too.

Children are constantly changing. 6 months is still young, so there is a possibility that her hair texture, as well as skin tone could change. My son lost some of the hairs on the side of his head when he was around 6 months because of how he slept, so he had a ton of hair on top and a thinner layer on the side. His hair grew back in a lighter color, but the same texture. I'm sure his hair can still change though. He has gotten darker, but not significantly son. It could just be because it's summer, I don't know. Some days he looks tan and other days he looks pale. Some babies darken and lighten up later too, so it's hard to tell what their skin tone will be.

There is so much uncertainty with children :) I hope that helps.
