Firstly, you cannot chose the traits of your baby or how she or he will look, this is not "The Sims". As far as "Speaking to animals" goes, that is physically impossible in ALL situations. She'll obviously be able to talk to animals, but an animal will never answer back. That is work for the astral plane, not the physical.
Choosing a baby's eye colour is impossible. However I can explain gene transferring to you if you choose to mail me and I'll help you figure out what colour eyes your baby will have.
If you want your baby to be good with animals, I suggest multiple trips to the Zoo, park, and local wildlife centers during his/her infancy and childhood. Let him/her play in the dirt, and clean up his/her knees when he/she falls outta trees.
