We've been talking a lot about Santa lately to get Harry ready for Christmas. Harry can identify his picture and talks about him, but I'm not sure he entirely gets it yet. On the way to see Santa today, we talked about telling Santa we wanted "a choo-choo train" for Christmas. Then when we got to the front of the line, Harry was starstruck. He hugged Mom tight for a minute then faced Santa and stared. I put him on Santa's lap and he stared as if he were in a trance. Harry was gripping a Matchbox car, so Santa asked about that in an attempt to get Harry to warm up to him. Luckily Harry has lots of experience saying the word "car," so he was able to repeat that when Santa asked what he wanted. On the way home, Harry gave this report: "I see San-ta Caus. Choo-Choo Train. Car."
