Family Photo Meme

Loren Christie has tagged me in a Family Photo Meme. Post a family picture with a story behind it and write about it.

This picture is of my sister Joanna Stephanie Gerold-Cummings with my youngest daughter. When she was about three weeks old she started to get really colicky and I thought I was going to go out of my mind. She was crying constantly and the only thing that would stop it was nursing her. So I was forever breastfeeding and, not having a hand free to eat with, thought I would starve to death. My sister came from Tennessee to help me through this most difficult week. She took care of the other three children so I could concentrate on taking care of myself and the baby. I gave up dairy and gassy foods and my newborn became content.

I tag Leticia, Karen, Violin Mama, Lisa, and Angie, and whoever else wants to play along.
