You know, it’s tough to blog with a baby in your arms.
I tried to get a good photo of Mary. All babies look better with their eyes open – it adds personality. But the flash made her blink. And turning the flash off required both her and me to be very still or else the photo would blur.
So, no good photo of Mary. Instead, one non-blurry, eyes closed photo…
…and one blurry, eyes open photo.
Trust me, she’s beautiful. She’s also my first daughter to have blue eyes at birth. Contrary to popular myth (“All babies are born with blue eyes”), my other daughters were born with murky, dark eyes. Jenny was two years old before we declared her eyes green. I don’t know if Mary will keep her blue eyes, but that they at least started out blue is nice.
Brown and green eyes are nice too. Especially when surrounded by a lovely, smiling face.
But I confess partiality to blue eyes like these (like mine).
