So despite all those threads and questions a few months ago, I'm still really confused about the whole prophecy thing. On Lily's Lexicon page, it says this:

Quoted from the Lexicon:
The prophecy foretold the birth of a boy "with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord" at the end of July, so as soon as Lily became pregnant the Potters went into hiding (OBT/CH). Voldemort waited to see what children were born, and began planning the murder of the Potter family (OP37, HBP25).
Is it an established canon fact that Voldemort waited to see what babies were born before he chose who to target? I haven't got my books with me so I can't check those chapters. If it's a fact then it'll iron out some problems I've been having, but it will mean I have to re-write pretty much all of my fic (it's only two chapters so far, so it's not a huge deal).

What do people think?
