Up to age 2 yrs: Eye color usually is set by age 2 yrs. In many children it is earlier but certainly can change the first 2 years of life.

A few months: Iris color comes from pigment cells (melanocytes) migrating into the eye. It starts usually around 4-6 months and may continue for 6 months or so.
