No turning back now.

He's here :) 8/19/09 -- 7 lbs 11 oz, 20 in long.

Almost 3 weeks old and we still can't tell what color his hair and eyes want to be. My brother and I are still holding out hope for a redhead. Or even a reddish head. Somehow we both got variations of red hair when our parents are brunettes... gotta thank Grammy Irene and Grandpa Nielsen, I guess. Biology nerds out there, draft yerselves a good Punnett square for that one.

Congrats. I've got what appears to be an auburn haired baby girl (5 months now), and I'm mostly dirty blonde with red highlights and hubby is brunette.

If you are really curious about the genetics behind reddish hair from two non-reddish haired individuals, here's a great site: (http://www.thetech.org/genetics/ask.php?id=44).
