Hot this season: Designer babies

hello-vivienne-knox9-shiloh1 Yes, we know, all kids are cute. But admit it: When you look at Shiloh Jolie-Pitt's blue eyes and wispy blond hair curling around her Precious Moments face, don't you want to steal her for yourself? (OK so maybe you don't.) Whatever features appeal to you, if you end up having another child, you can now dictate its looks: Reportedly, within six months, a fertility clinic with offices in New York and Los Angeles will begin letting parents choose the eye and hair color of their children . Yup, you can design your own dream baby right in the petri dish for a mere $15,000. Of course we this idea was on the horizon, but it seems closer to reality than expected. Thank you, science ! Shilohs for EVERYONE! One of my favorite blogs, F-ed in Park Slope , has taken this idea to the next level by inviting users to design the perfect Park Slope baby. It's like when you go to Tossed and get to choose what kind of lettuce you want, and then add all of your favorite toppings--except with DNA . Brilliant. They've even mapped out a few hilarious qualities to get you started. Time to let that stifled creativity flow!
