Gavin's due date. It's so strange to me how the course of his life may be altered due to his prematurity....I mean, besides the health stuff directly related to preemie-ness...the other stuff like:

Had Gavin been born on 11.27.04 he:

Would not be in Kindergarten this year. He would be bored out of his mind in another year of day care.

Would not spend all weekend running back and forth to Arushi's house, as he would not have met her in Kindergarten.

Would have been one of the oldest instead of youngest in his class. Who knows what impact this will have on learning and sports in years to come.

Will have different friends, will date different girls, have different teachers, all because he was born 3 months early.

It's strange to this about what impact this will have. Will he go to a different college? Choose a different major? Marry a different girl?

Yes, it's all a bit Sliding Doors to think about. But since I fully believe life works out the way it's supposed to, I wouldn't have it any other way.
