It’s officially official….
WE ARE SHARK PARENTS After a whole lot of waiting our baby shark decided to surprise us this weekend.
We literally bounced off walls.
Don’t ask about the name, it just kind of fit.
Very “apple-esque” don’t cha think.
Fajita is about the size of our hand, he’s teeny tiny.
I wish I could pick him up and snuggle. How could you not love that face.
Now comes the really hard part.
We have to get him to eat.
We have heard it can take up to two weeks to get them to start munching. We are already trying, and in our heads he is already picking up that it is food. But doesn’t everyone think that their little one is ahead of the game.
When you say your prayers tonight, throw in little Fajita.
He’ll thank you later.
We have already decided that if we DO get him eating, then a bigger tank is in order. Obviously I have already begun planning.
No way can we let this little munchkin go until he is at least four feet. He has already made friends with the little shrimp. If only that shrimp knew that in a couple months Fajita will want him for dinner.
Mama’s so proud.

Love the name! Congrats!
Hahaha…thanks! I thought people would think I was totally nuts 🙂
He is precious! What kind of shark is he? And, I like the name too…..super cute!
He is a Black Banded Cat Shark, I can’t wait till he starts GROWING!!!
WAIT! This grows to be 4 feet? What on earth are you two doing? That’s craziness!
Hahaha we are turning our basement into the St. Louis aquarium!!!
So sorry for my late comment to this fantastic news! I feel like I should send flowers and a big teddy bear! Congratulations to the new parents!
Awww thanks girl!
