I WAS BORN: April 17, 2007, in St. Luke's hospital.

MY PARENTS ARE: Zach and Danielle Zigich of Duluth.

MY SISTER IS: Neva, 2.

MY GRANDPARENTS ARE: Dan and Toni Merritt and Mike and Mitzi Zigich, all of Duluth.

MY GREAT-GRANDPARENTS ARE: Sally Pionk, Leonard and Carleen Pionk, and Don and Lorraine Merritt, all of Duluth; John and Carole Veron of Trego; and the late George and Diane Tomich and Nick and Delores Zigich.

MY PARENTS CHOSE THIS NAME BECAUSE: Mommy and Daddy love the name Gavin. Mikhail is the Slavic form of Grandpa Mike's name.

PARENTS' WISH OR ADVICE: Within your heart keep one still, secret spot where dreams may go. And, as your Great Baba always said, "If you're going to fly, fly high."

SOMETHING SPECIAL: My sister Neva didn't like me very much when I arrived, but now we are the best of friends! With her by my side, the rocks will skip forever and the stars won't seem so far away.
