The Gallery: Eyes

And so to this week's Gallery theme.

Which is simply: Eyes

And because the theme is simple, I'm going to choose a simple photo and let it (mostly) speak for itself. I will just say though that I see a wealth of family members in The Boy's eyes. Sometimes they are big and green-ish like his father's, sometimes they are old and blue like my father's. That was disconcerting when I was breast-feeding!

His heritage, and his future, is in his eyes everytime I look at him.

    eeek at what you said about your Dad's eyes!!
    The boy has lovely eyes…and lovely big squidgy cheeks too…maybe that should be a theme for The Gallery one week!

    Eek! I know what you mean about your dads eyes, I used to be the same with Charles in the very early days…except it'd be my brother!
    Lovely words…and is that a Stegosaurus hat The Boy has on? x

      I can't work out the colour of The Boy's one minute they're grey, the next green, hazel, never my grey-blue colour though.

      You're not the first to say that. He was born a matter of hours before my great aunt's funeral, I like to think of a little bit of her in him. Such a shame she never got to see him because she'd have loved him!
