Lilly's eyes were dark dark (like navy) when she was born, but looked dark until we moved to a room with a window and she was in sunlight.

They were brown the next day. I think they've gotten a tiny bit lighter, but not much.

Ev's are still blue blue! Neither Darryl nor I have blue eyes. Hers are a gift from my dad. <3

Has anyone done any kind of non cry-it-out sleep training?

Lillian goes through periods of sleeping through the night, but typically she wakes very frequently - and now it's starting to be not to eat, just to be rocked/soothed back to sleep. We're thinking about doing some sort of sleep training to teach her how to self-soothe and fall asleep on her own (she won't fall asleep in a swing, car, stroller, etc..ONLY if she's being held (and usually walked/rocked/swaddled/etc.). And unless she's in a VERY deep sleep, her eyes pop wide open and she cries when we put her down.

Nico's are still blue. All my kids have beautiful blue eyes. I have blue eyes though and Doug has blue eyes too. My ex had green eyes. All my kids were born blond as well but my 3 oldest seem to be darkening out. Which will most likely happen with Nico too as he gets older.

Check out Elizabeth Pantley's no cry sleep solution.

Though honestly, what you are describing is very normal.

Clive will be three in December and his eyes have stayed the same shade of blue. Both his dad and I have blue eyes, though, so we'd known his eyes would stay blue. What shade they'd be was up in the air, though.

I know it's normal, and I'm not opposed to rocking her to sleep into toddlerhood, but daddy thinks falling asleep herself is important and I think it will be a loooot better for me, especially when I go back to school full time (I probably spend around 2hrs a day getting her to nap. Cutting our 20-30+ minute falling asleep routine to 5 or 10 minutes would be a huge help to my sanity.

We're looking into pantley's method the most, has anyone here actually used it?

I did not use the Pantley's method bit read the book and have several friends who used it and had success.

My daughter really has the stereotypical "high needs baby" personality and I have a feeling it won't take long until she cries while we hold her until she's actually asleep...I guess it's worth a try, though.
