You’ve never seen or heard anything so heart-piercingly pathetic as Elsa when she’s sick. The poor girl makes the saddest little animal sounds to complement her arsenal of happy screeching. She’s had a fever off and on for a few days, and she has the normal sick infant mix of saliva-snot-tears covering her face much of the time. It’s really something to test your hard-heartedness. Just try not to pick that baby up when she scrunches up her face and whimpers.
The good news is that she is sleeping well, so our sympathy for her never flows over into frustration. And with all that rest, I’m sure she’ll be back and in high spirits in a day or so.
