It's been a brutal last few days and nights, not just for me but for Emmylou too. I guess it's the teething, but she's been crying nonstop unless I'm holding her, and only sleeping a few hours at a time. We went out to dinner the last couple of nights and both have ended with me holding her the entire time, trying to eat with one hand so she'll stay quiet and not bother the other people in the restaurant. The picture above is of us at our favorite (Greek) restaurant, Samos. If you've come to visit us, you've likely been there, possibly more than once! We also took her to our favorite restaurant in Little Italy on Friday and the chef, Nino, took her for a walk through the place trying to get her to calm down! I ended up holding her the entire time there too, but luckily she only ended up with a little risotto on her.

But maybe things are on the mend... I'm happy to report that last night was her best night of sleeping ever! She went to bed at 9:00, slept until 7:30, ate, and then went back to sleep until 10:30! Yay!!! I think we both needed it. I hope it means we're getting back to her schedule and that maybe she's not feeling as bad as she was before.

I've heard stories about my parents giving me to waitresses when i was a baby, so they could enjoy a meal without me screaming. i'm glad that she's getting through it and back to her normal sleeping habits.
