So far, Mariel has three nicknames:
Camaroncita linda (beautiful little shrimp): because she curls up like a little shrimp when she sleeps on our chests.
Camaroncita china (little Chinese shrimp): see above + she has some Chinese features (the Pei branch of Francisco’s family showing up, generations later)
Buddhette. (because she’s gaining weight and looks like a little Buddha; plus, she’s super peaceful)
So we were talking about Halloween costumes and thought she could be a shrimp or a Buddhette. But we can’t decide so we’re taking your votes. Are you for the shrimp or the Buddhette? Leave your vote below.
