Default Pws or Salmon Patch

Hi guys, our beautiful baby girl came into the world on November 25th 2014. She has to what my wife and I feel are angel kisses or salmon patches. They are on the eye lids, the V on the forhead and the back of the neck. Our doctor has never said she thinks they are port wine stains and has stated she thinks that they are salmon patches. Everytime we bring her in she asks us if we think they are growing (which they are not) but never really gets to the point of why she is asking that. The last appointment we had a week ago she said she would like us to see a optometrist, then the following week see a neurologist. Then she would like us to get an MRI. Never did she mention port wine stains or SWS. Just searching the internet I came across SWS. I figure she doesnt want to scare us because she did say she is being conservative and there is less then a 1% chance it is anything to be worried about.

We are going to see both specialists but before we get the MRI done I am going to get a second opinion at another pediatrician even though I have to pay out of pocket for it. With the attatched pictures would you say there is a chance they could not be salmon patches?
