My daughter was born with blue eyes. She had blue eyes until she was 6yrs old. She is now 7yrs old and her eyes are now hazel green. I always thought she would have blue eyes but I guess not.

I had blue eyes as a child and mine turned during 4th/5th grade. All of my children were born with blue eyes, three-2 girls and 1 boy, and only one still has blue eyes at the age of 13. The other two changed during their elementary school time.

I dont think there is a good rule for this one, my eyes change depending on what I am wearing, their blue but take on different shades as do most of my sibblings. One sister has green eyes but when she is mad, they get like cat green, its freaky. Hope your getting good pictures of the changes ;-)

My son was born with what I call "murky blue" eyes and they turned brown when he was four.  Coincidentally, I was born with hazel eyes and they turned brown when I was four.  My twin girls were born with baby blue eyes and blonde hair and they have not changed and they are now almost seven.

I have twin boys and they had dark navy blue eyes until they were 2. There eyes then changed to dark brown, they are now nearly 8 and their eye's are now changing to hazel green. I think it depends on the individual, no child does everything by the book.

My daughters eyes were blue until she was about a year and a half. They changed to hazel for a few years, and she is now eleven and has brown eyes!

My 2 year olds eyes are still changing like Crazy!! My 6 year old has big big blues, my 2 year old has gone from blue to green to brownish green!! Who knows what will happen next!! I think if they are really a deep blue, chances are they will stay that way.

My daughter's eyes were blue until 18 months and then they started to turn gray, so it would probably be in the first 2 years or so, but then every child is different.

My son was almost 3 before his eyes went from blue to green. They actually have a blue ring outside the green.

I think it is very unique for them to change during childhood and not as a baby. I have not heard of this before...

I've always heard that after 6months to a year old, they're the color they are going to be for their life. However, my kids all had blue eyes until they were 2 and now their green and hazel...go figure
