Default New baby is...sky blue greywing?

Last year we decided Kyrie was blue opaline greywing; new as-yet-unnamed baby is a close match but not quite the same. Full body pix attached for comparison. Kyrie's grey is more pronounced, and when she was a baby, her head bars were soft but visible; the baby's grey is more muted and his head shows no barring. (Of course, Kyrie was 3 mos. when I got her; the baby is app. 5-6 wks.) On the other hand, Kyrie's blue is less vivid than his, but over the past year, she's developed a lovely blue spot on the back of her head/neck--barely visible in photo. I'm outta my league in nailing their colors/mutations here--suggestions/guesses/confirmations, anyone?

Man, I'm having trouble too. The one on the right does look like a sky blue greywing, but the lack of head bars is interesting.
I can't tell from the picture about the one on the right. I identify opaline by looking at their back, but I can't see in that pic.
How old are they again?

The baby looks like a male sky blue greywing to me. He's cute!
