A Walk in the park - he was happy

At 12 weeks Mack is not quite 3 months (well at least until February 23rd).
We've learned to anticipate and meet many of his needs, making crying less necessary.
His nervous system is maturing, and with it, the ability to cope with stress.
He is finding new ways to communicate: squeals of frustration, joyous giggles, whimpering when he's tired.
Experts agree that the more promptly and consistently you respond to your child during the first six months of his life, the less demanding he is likely to be when he is older. Once he is completely secure in your affections, he'll be able to separate from you over time and become a happy, independent person.

- 3 tablespoon granulated sugar
- ½ cup rolled oats
- ½ cup packed brown sugar
- ¼ cup all-purpose flour
- ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ cup butter
- ¼ cup chopped nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place apples in 2 quart square baking dish. Stir in granulated sugar. In a separate bowl for topping, combine oats, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Cut in butter with two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in nuts and sprinkle over fruit. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until golden. Serve with frozen yogurt, if desired.
