Default Baby 'Lotl Colors?

Hi, sorry if this has already been posted, but I'm perplexed with my baby axies. I've been trying to figure out what color they all are since they hatched, but I haven't had any luck. Naturally, I've looked for answers on the internet first before posting this. :) I've seen some say that their babies didn't change color until they were almost 6 months old, but most seem to get their color in the first couple months. I also know that babies all start out looking kinda like wild types. Well, my babies hatched Thanksgiving day (November 26, 2015). They are just over 2 months and are probably around 2 inches end to end. I've read that they should get color around this age/size. I have several babies and every single one still has the wild type appearance. I'm trying to be patient, but I'm just so excited! Since this is my first time raising babies, I'm not sure what to expect. I'm kind of worried that maybe I neglected them somehow and stunted their growth in some way. Anyway, I know there's no possible way for every baby to be wild type since the farther is a GFP golden albino and the momma is a leucistic. I can see spots and stripes on some and a few have no markings and look like a pale melanoid. Of course I don't know what the parents' genes might include, so it is possible for some to be of a different color, but not all of them like they appear to be. I can tell which one are GFP, however. I can post photos if needed, but right now all I have is older pictures (they still look the same color though). Thanks for your thoughts! :)
