Sometime during this past week, Briony figured out 'I love...' and it's been a veritable lovefest around here since then. Some more frequently heard declarations include 'I love eee eee (monkey)!' 'I love Foofa!' 'I love cheese!' and 'I love swings!'

It's important to note that these exclamations are SHOUTED. And often randomly. And she looks at us as if she's letting us in on some big secret, not understanding that we are absolutely aware of EVERYTHING that Briony loves in this world.

Around the same time, she also started with the hug attacks. That's what we're calling them, because I'm not really sure how else to describe what happens. Briony just randomly stops what she's doing and comes at us yelling 'HUG! HUG!' and then flings herself at us as forcefully as she can muster. Immediately on impact, she'll go limp and just nuzzle into your neck (sometimes whispering 'hug! hug!') and stay there for as long as she needs to. And then she gets up and continues with her playing as if nothing happened.

The hug attacks have us on our toes because the surprise sneaky ninja hugs could end very badly if we don't catch her when she goes limp. In any case, it's hilarious - and one of my favourite Briony things so far.

That and watching her yell 'I looooove swiiiiiiings!' as she giggles from up in the clouds.
