Second verse, same as the first

by statia on June 15, 2009

It’s funny how they tell you that you shouldn’t really compare kids to other kids, or even your own children to each other, but you do.  It’s inevitable.  I’ll admit, that most of my comparisons with the Mini and LG, are mainly due to my insane obsession with making sure that she’s developing typically (though, looking back, the Mini was typically developing, save for some sensory things that I really didn’t think to look for).  Something I have really no way of determining at her young age, but much like my obsession with making sure she has a round head.

Given that Little Girl is only four weeks old, it’s way too early for her eye color to be determined, but it seems that she’s already taking the same path her brother did.   Both were born with full heads of dark brown hair.  Something I had hoped the Mini would have kept, along with inheriting his father’s eyes.  I figured, he’d have to have either my color or the Meester’s, however, my child not only has blonde hair, but he has both brown and blue-ish eyes.  They’re a hazel with brown around the irises.  My child, he even has his own eye color, rather than inherit one or the other.

And if LG is anything like her brother, or rather, anything like her mother (which seems to be the case already), she’s definitely going to be marching to the beat of her own drummer, even genetically.

My daughter had the good graces to be a.) Female (which would have made being my daughter rather odd otherwise) and b.) to have the most gorgeous blue eyes in the family. My husband and all of his other offspring have dark chocolate brown or hazelish eyes. SO, she gave me two out of three. The third thing I had asked was for her to be a baby just like her big sister (my other biological child) who was the absolute easiest baby ever born. Yeah. She chose to go polar opposite on that one.

My first son has those hazel/blue eyes, too. So neat! Son #2′s eye color is TBD, but I suspect it will be more like mine — green/brown.
